Haymeadow wedding in Blackdown Hills

Haymeadow wedding in Blackdown Hills

Haymeadow wedding in the Blackdown Hills in Somerset

Naomi and Joels wedding took place on 2nd May 2015. A few weeks leading up to their wedding there was glorious sunshine, unfortunately for their wedding day the weather was forecast to be heavy rain. Naomi and Joels wedding took place at Naomi’s family church in Heathfield, a tiny village in Somerset. They had a marquee reception with stunning views over looking the Black Down Hills at The Haymeadow.

As the day unfolded the weather was slightly better than the forecast. It remained dry until the early evening, this meant during the group photographs and Naomi and Joels portraits we were able to do these outside the church and in the garden of Naomi’s family home.

The photography coverage was 8 hours with two photographers, Myself and Catherine Spiller who worked for me as my second photographer. We started at 12pm and finished at 8pm, I covered the bridal preparations and Catherine covered the groom preparations.

I loved this wedding, it was very relaxed, fun and had a few surprises – Joel gave Naomi a pet piglet for a wedding present! It was really obvious that Naomi and Joel had a brilliant day even though the weather wasn’t too great.

Here are a few of my favourite images from Naomi and Joel’s Haymeadow wedding:
