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

warm wedding, calm candlelight
lighting your wedding venue with candles always creates a calm mood.
There was so much for kids to do at this wedding - it was non -stop play time. These guys took the crown for doing everyhting at once! A kind of Robin Hood does bubble battle with the Sherriff of Somerset.
