Dawn and James chose two fantastic venues for their wedding and both a stones throw from my home. The Pig, a fabulous shabby chic country house near Bath was perfect for bridal preparations followed by the charming Priston Watermill to tie the knot.
The day was perfect (for a photographer anyway) warm and overcast with stormy skies. Dawn’s concerns about the weather had led her to check the long-term forecast which only meant more worrying. This is never a good idea! Predictably the weatherman had it wrong and we only saw one brief shower all day. If you haven’t visited the Pig then please don’t. It’s my special place and parking is getting tight as it is. Of course if you’re going to get ready at the pig or even married there then that’s fine (as long as I’m your photographer)! The accommodation at The Pig is varied and there are many individual spaces to choose from. Dawn had chosen one of the beautiful garden rooms, which thankfully had plenty of space to accommodate the many people who popped in and out while the hairstylist, and make up artists were at work.
Dawn looked beautiful in an exquisite Cinderella dress and was delivered to Priston Mill alongside her father in a stunning Rolls Royce. Traditional timing meant they arrived just 5 minutes late. The ceremony commenced, James and Dawn had written their own wedding vows both of which gave a mention to scrambled eggs! Finally there was a swift confetti throw before we were whisked off for a tour in the Rolls. We stopped to take photographs of the newly weds in the lush green countryside and then made our way to the local Farm where Dawn’s wish of sitting on a hay bale on her wedding day came true. On our return to the Mill Dawn’s brother who was acting as usher did a grand job of rounding up the troops for the very informal family photos. Amber, Dawns niece was the flower girl who stole the show (undoubtedly there were more photos taken of her than the bride but she was a stunner)! The wedding breakfast was served, promptly followed by speeches and a whisky toast to James’ dad who sadly passed way last year. A disco provided the evening entertainment and was thoroughly enjoyed by all especially little Amber who was in her element.
A great day had by all. Thanks to James and Dawn for choosing me to capture your magical day, I hope these photos give you lots of laughs and bring all the great memories flooding back.
