Holly and Tim – Wedding Photography at Charlton House Hotel and Spa, Shepton Mallet

I have known Holly in a professional capacity for some time now. She is the events coordinator at Batch Country House in Lympsham and I was delighted when she contacted me about her wedding photography at Charlton House. I knew that her day would be laid back, while at the same time being super organised (it’s the very nature of a coordinator to have lots of lists and spot on timings!)

Holly chose to to get ready onsite and her hair and makeup was already complete when I arrived. Getting her daughter Ava ready was a tad more challenging than Holly and her mum anticipated. Intent on not having her hair done, little Miss Piper was having a whale of a time running around and thriving on the attention. She loved looking at her picture on the back of the camera though, which made for a great bribe later in the day!

Holly didn’t have adult attendants, choosing to make Ava both her flowergirl and chief bridesmaid and instead invited her best girls up to the room to help her into her gown and join her in a glass of bubbles before the ceremony. A lovely way to incorporate your best friends in the Big Day and still give them an imporant role.

Tim and Holly chose to have Love Actually style flash mob singers during their ceremony. Just as guests rose to greet the Bride a soloist started and headed to the microphone at the front of the room. She was then joined by two others who headed down the aisle just as Ava came round the corner. Initially reluctant to head do the aisle by herself she dashed back round the corner to her mum and was helped down the aisle by one of Holly’s friends before she ran into her Daddy’s arms (and promptly ran back again to see what was taking her mum so long.)

After the ceremony the couple did an impromtu receiving line and their guests enjoyed canapes and a scone station provided by Charlotte’s Tearooms in Winscombe. Unfortunately very poor weather meant that going outside for the group photos wasn’t going to be an option. So instead we used the restaurant for a lovely light room to create the traditional family portraits.

I loved that Holly and Tim had put so much thought into entertaining the children. Childminder Donna arrived just after ceremony and came armed with arts and crafts, lego, books and a million other toys to keep everyone amused. The children ate separately from the adults and had a table adorned with animal balloons, sweet favours and each child had a personalised cupcake. A great way to allow the parents to relax and enjoy their afternoon and make sure the speeches are uninterrupted!

Loved Mr and Mrs Piper’s first dance. a beautiful romantic start that ended with a mash up and boy/girl dance off. Something that their guests won’t forget for a long time and it was a great way for me to end my evening with the newlyweds.
