On Friday I photographed Lisa & Graham’s wedding at Rookery Manor near Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset.


As you know by now if you read my blog regularly, not all my weddings are in Herts and Essex. I travelled to the West Country for this wedding and stopped off overnight in Bristol before arriving nice and early.


After saying my hello’s and taking a few shots with the girls I caught up with the boys.

Rookery Manor is a superb wedding venue with fantastic grounds and interiors. I then went back to finish my shots with the girls who were getting ready in the bridal suite.


The light in the room was just right for some pre-wedding shots.

It was then time for the ceremony, it was quite a late one starting at 4.30pm.


I captured the ceremony and signing, before taking the formal group shots and some natural and casual shots outside.

I then took the couple around the grounds for some romantic photographs, we really made the most of this as the sun was beginning to get low in the sky.


There was an archway which really looked fantastic.

There was a gate at the farm opposite which had an amazing backdrop.


Just a few more shots, include a Romeo & Juliet shot suggested by the groom.

Everyone then went inside for the speeches. The colours inside the banquetting hall were so vibrant.


I did find the speeches entertaining along with the guests who were all laughing hard.

It was time for the first dance and a live band played along.


The band called ‘Reoffender’ were excellent and they played a good mix of songs, old and new.

The confetti shot was a little different as the venue didn’t want us to do it outside…


I had great fun photographing Lisa & Graham’s wedding. If you would like me to photograph yours then please do get in touch. There was one more shot to get before I left.
