The Wedding of Martin & Helen in Taunton, Somerset

A wonderful day at the end of May for the wedding of Martin and Helen in Taunton. The ceremony was in the village of West Monkton, followed by the reception at Woodlands Castle.


I photographed the whole day from bridal preparation in the morning through to the first dance in the evening. As both Martin and Helen were getting ready in houses close to one another, I was able to capture some images of the groom preparing for the day as well as the bride.


The weather played ball and we had a few outbreaks of sunshine, which made for some great light while the evening guests were arriving. We made the most of the lovely grounds at Woodlands Castle and were spoilt for choice with locations for some intimate shots of the couple.


I concentrated on capturing lots of natural, candid moments throughout the day as I always do. A small selection of my photographs from the day are below, please take a look.
