Carly & Steve / Orchardleigh Walled Garden / Somerset Wedding Photographer
22nd April 2018
When the Bride is a wedding planner it has to be spot on…and it was!
Orchardleigh Walled Gardens was the spectacular wedding venue for today. The laid back atmosphere made for a truly beautiful day. It was our first visit to the Gardens and it didn’t disappoint. Arriving at Carly’s room everything was running smoothly with Bridesmaids having the finishing touches done to their hair and make up. We then popped over to the ceremony room where we met Steve and his Groomsmen including a cardboard cut out of one of his Best Men who unfortunately couldn’t be there. A few pictures were taken then back to the Bride’s room.
Carly was ready in good time and looking a million dollars. Neil had time to capture some amazing pictures under the Magnolia blossom tree before heading over to the ceremony…and what a ceremony it was! Every word spoken between them was written by themselves, Carly remembering her words off by heart, needless to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Before we took the newly married couple off for their pictures we took a peak at the Breakfast room…WOW… everything on the tables was made by the Bride herself including the cake and flowers! it all looked amazing.
During Steve’s speech we learnt how he proposed…I’m sure there’s not many proposals that involve scuba diving, a treasure chest, letter and a ring! Like the rest of the day it was very romantic. Later in the afternoon Neil was out and about taking pictures of guests when Steve asked if we could take a picture of his pants! Of course we can Steve…Steve dropped his trousers and flashed us his boxers ‘JUST MARRIED!’ Carly you’re a lucky girl!
The day ended for us with the first dance. The whole day had been an amazing one with so much love and laughter shared with some great people.
Thank you Carly & Steve for asking us to be part of your special day.
