Lucy & Garreth – Babington House Wedding Photographer
As a West Country fella, it’s always a particular pleasure to be asked to photograph a wedding in Babington House. Babington House, part of the Soho House Group, is a private members retreat in rural Somerset situated near Frome.
I arrived to see Garreth and the fellas dashing for cover from a shower, having had to abort their morning cricket match. Thankfully the rain didn’t stay and I met Lucy and the girls in matching pj’s having their hair and make up done and enjoying the odd glass of bubbles.
One of the really special elements of Babington House is the private chapel located on site. A truly stunning building that Lucy and Garreth had decked out with flowers and candles. With the chapel filling up with a handsome bunch of guests, Garreth and his bestman waited patiently (at least, a calm exterior was being successfully projected!) for Lucy, the bridesmaids and her father to arrive.
The service was beautiful, along with the choice of hymns – who doesn’t love Jerusalem?! Lucy and Garreth exited to petal confetti and dazzling sunshine. After a fun family group photography session, the bride and groom and I, plus the amazing bridesmaid Lucy Kerr (on reflector duty), nipped off for some relaxed portraits in the manicured grounds of Babington House, with a pond, cornfield and walled garden we were spoilt for locations.
After dinner and wonderful speeches the dance floor filled and I left a packed bar to make my way back to London. A huge thank you to Lucy, Garreth and all the friends and family who made me so welcome. X
