We set off for Somerset on Thursday evening and stayed overnight so that we would be close for Andy and Liz’s wedding in Lympsham the following day. Staying the night before takes away the pressure of a long journey on the day and any unforeseen hold ups.
We arrived in the midst of the bridal preparations, everything was going to plan, the girls were ready ahead of time and looked stunning in their dresses.
Last year Liz and Ruth had been bridesmaids at Sarah’s wedding,it was nice to catch up with them all again.
A short journey took us to Batch Country House the venue for today’s ceremony and celebrations. The Groom and Groomsmen were all ‘suited and booted’ and enjoying a drink. The sky had turned quite grey and Andy was deliberating on whether the ceremony should be taken inside. Liz was so wanting the ceremony to be held in the garden and holding the decision off for a little longer paid off.
Liz arrived with her brother John who was giving her away and Sarah and Ruth, her bridesmaids, in a Volkswagen camper van. They had no idea that this was how they were going to be arriving, it had been organised as a surprise.
The ceremony was very personal and included a poem read by two of the couples nephews who spoke clearly and confidently and were rewarded with a round of applause.
After the drinks reception the formal group photos were taken before we headed off into the grounds with the bridal party and then with just Liz and Andy.
Liz didn’t stop smiling on her wedding day and we’re sure that these few images will keep her smiling. We look forward to seeing Andy and Liz again soon to show them the rest of their photos before we release them on our website , in the meantime we hope you enjoy this selection.
We wish Andy and Liz all the very best for their future together.
