Nettlecombe Court Wedding Photography
Nettlecombe Court is a little gem hidden away in the hills in West Somerset. It’s the first, and only time to date, I have shot a wedding here. I’m really hoping it’s not the last! Sam and Gemma booked me for their Nettlecombe Court wedding photography back in 2018. The weekend that Sam and Gemma got married was when the South of the U.K had that horrendous wind and rain. A summer storm, and two days of it. The night before we were all a bit worried. However, by 3 pm on the big day, the weather had completely transformed and summer was back! The ceremony did have to be held inside still, as of the slowly dying wind, but I will say, I think it made just as nice photos as if it was outside. I took one of my favourite confetti shots to date.
What was nice about this venue, is that Nettlecombe Court is not actually a wedding venue; it is a field studies council that teaches environmental courses for schools, colleges, and universities. The building and grounds were beautiful and there wasn’t that commercial feel that you might expect from an educational facility.
Something old, something borrowed, something blue
The one thing I will always remember from this day is the flowers. The oranges in Gemma’s hair were a great colour for that little pop needed in a set of wedding photos and she looked lovely. Sam didn’t brush up bad either. I wish Sam and Gemma all the best in their married years to come. You really made me feel like part of your day! Although Nettlecombe Court is not usually a wedding venue, I hope to return here one day! Every little detail was perfect, traditional is the best word I can think of. I really did struggle to get a bad photo! Congratulations to Gemma and Sam
