I've been the wedding photographer at the Great Tythe Barn a few times now and it, once again, provided a great backdrop for this Autumn wedding last year.Read More

When photographing weddings, I'm looking for moments just like this. This is the type of photo that is going to mean more than any elaborate photo of wedding rings or a staged group photo of guests jumping, these are the real moments between family that are going to be treasured for years to come.
This image was shot at the amazing Maunsel House in Somerset, one of the more interesting wedding venues in the South-West.
I feel really lucky to have been the Walton Castle wedding photographer a number of times over the years for some fantastic, creative weddings. To have your own castle for the weekend is just amazing and it's been great working with couples who were looking for a documentary wedding photographer to capture their day in an unobtrusive way. Here is a selection of images from a few of the weddings I've photographed, showing images from the wedding day as well as different set-ups that couples can choose to have.
I'll be at their open day this Sunday, January 8th, so please stop by to discuss your wedding photography as well as to meet many other preferred suppliers of Walton Castle.
When you're planning your wedding and start finding out about what you can (and very often can not) do at venues, Walton Castle is quite refreshing in that it's a blank slate for doing pretty much anything you want too. Indoor or outdoor wedding ceremony, small and large marquees, access to the turrets to use as bars, ceremony or function rooms. Here are a few of the set-ups I've seen. The first is a small, open-air marquee with an outdoor ceremony.
This set-up was for a summer wedding with an outdoor ceremony and a large marquee set up outside the castle walls.
This was a wedding of around 80 guests with an outdoor ceremony and a smaller marquee inside the castle walls.
This was such a fantastic wedding I can't believe I've waited so long to put together a blog post about it! There are some wedding photographers that say it's all about the details, and although they're certainly important, I say it's the characters and emotion which really make the day truly unique and memorable. Luckily, this wedding in Somerset had both in spades!
A gorgeous church ceremony in Langport followed by a tractor ride to the outdoor wedding venue with a stunning marquee on site for the wedding breakfast. With mini-bottles of shooters for wedding favours, the guests were primed for the dance floor when the music eventually got going.
As a reportage wedding photographer, this Old Oak Farm Wedding in Somerset certainly kept me busy. With over 150 guests, some enjoying the sunshine playing garden games, some standing on tables doing shots, it was such a great wedding to be part of. If you're looking for an amazing alternative wedding venue in the South West, Old Oak Farm is one the best! To see some other amazing Somerset wedding venues I've been the photographer for, have a look at St Audries Park and Maunsel House.
Thanks so much for looking! Scott
