Jo & David Orchardleigh018And now a segway into Orchardleigh House Wedding Photography 😉

I met Jo and David who were guests at Kyle and James’ beautiful wedding I photographed last year, and was delighted when they got in touch and asked me to photograph their wedding. It was wonderful to see Kyle and James who were guests at Jo and David’s wedding.

Orchardleigh House is a Grade II listed Victorian country house set in the vast Orchardleigh Estate in Frome, Somerset. It’s about as fabulous a wedding venue as you can get. Bridal preparations started at one of the many cottages on the estate where Jo had her hair and makeup done, then continued with the dress at the beautiful bridal suite at the house.

Unbeknownst to David, who has a love for Segways, as a surprise he was to arrive with the groomsmen on Segways at the house. He was given a brief safety tour with the guys while Jo was getting ready. It was quite an entrance!

I loved the Scottish theme of this wedding – even old Lucy the labrador was kitted out in fine Scottish attire! A bagpiper welcomed the groomsmen and led Jo and her father down the aisle – he also featured in the Celidh band which were great fun in the evening.

Congratulations Jo and David – I wish you both every happiness! Thanks for having me along. 🙂

Jo & David Orchardleigh131 “Wow!!!!  These are absolutely amazing.  I’ve just gone through them all and have been laughing out loud to myself in the middle of the office as the memories are all coming flooding back.  Some of my colleagues think I’m a bit strange I imagine! I can’t thank you enough for capturing the story of the day, including all the incredible emotions that went with it.  These will be photos we will treasure forever and they could not be better. “

Jo and David
