Somerset has so many beautiful villages. One of them is Tintinhull, situated near Yeovil. Rachel and Jim, who live in the area chose this little village for their wedding. Contacted by Rachel and Jim last year, I was more than pleased to be able to shoot their Somerset wedding. Jim, himself, is currently a long serving member of the British Army. I have served myself, therefore we had a connection.
I love shooting a wedding where a military uniform is within a set of images, it tells a second story. Rachel and Jim got married in St Margarets Church in Tintinhull, their reception was held at the Crown and Victoria Inn. Jim, who is from Tintinhull got ready with his Dad at his house, where he grew up as a lad, and Rachel prepared with her mum, and friend’s at the venue. With Rachel and Jim bot being close by, this really helped me get photos of all the events leading up to the day. Prep photos are so important to a wedding album.
The ceremony was held a few hundred meters from the venue, in the Local Church. This day was one for warmest I seem to remember, so being inside a stone building was literally a blessing. The celebrations after are something to remember I will say. Watching Rachel and Jim play Mr & Mrs was hilarious. Testing to see who know what about who. Eye brows where raised her. The crowd laughing all the way through.
What a brilliant couple these two really are, full of laughs. I felt part of the day, more like a guest than I did a wedding photographer. I wish you all the best in your married years ahead! And when I see them next no doubt we shall stop and grab a coffee for a catch up.
