bath wedding jo and andy

A beautiful intimate wedding ceremony of closest family followed by an evening reception with lots of friends and a dance floor filled with fun, kids and colour. Wick farm  was the perfect spot: set in the lush, green countryside near to the castle at Farleigh Hungerford. Below are Jo and Andy  beneath a stunning red sky as the sun set over Somerset .

woof! - a greeting for the photographer who arrived early to plan the wedding photography

black dog at wedding

I was greeted by this dog who sniffed me out through the  cat flap as I explored this beautiful spot for a wedding! I later heard that many years ago the farm was a kennels - but have to say I think it has been put to far better use as a beautiful countryside wedding venue.
