Sparkford Hall Wedding Photography – Katie & Alex

Share this

This week I had the pleasure of editing Alex and Katie’s Sparkford Hall wedding photography in Somerset.


Exclusive Use of a Beautiful House


I’ve said it many times before but I love photographing a wedding where the couple get exclusive use of a beautiful house and grounds and can design the day that they want. This is what happened at Sparkford Hall at the beginning of August this year and I had the pleasure of joining them on the Saturday. I’ve sometimes been part of the wedding for the whole weekend, arriving on the Friday evening, photographing the wedding on the Saturday and the aftermath on the Sunday – it’s fun and always nice to tell the whole story.


Sunny Outdoor Ceremony


We were in the middle of a long hot sunny summer and Katie and Alex decided to have the wedding outside in the orchard – with a humanist blessing. Normally in the UK the main concern is rain but on this occasion it was about shade from the sun and keeping cool – plenty of fans and water was provided.

I had such a fun time on the day (as did everyone) and it’s certainly reflected in the photography. Katie and Alex were very laid back on the day (Alex went go-carting in the morning) and gave me free reign to do what I do – photograph in a relaxed and unposed way. They just carried on with the wedding and I became a part of the day, looking for interesting and creative ways to tell the story.

Great Sparkford Hall Wedding Photography


It was heartening to receive feedback in the week after having popped a couple of photos on Instagram:


“Dear Andrew

I’m Katie’s Mum Sue and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing job you did on Saturday. We didn’t have much contact as Katie and Alex wanted to organise everything but I can safely say that you were the best photographer I have ever experienced. Huge fun but not intrusive and the initial photographs look amazing.

Thank you so much for everything you added to the day and for making Katie and Alex’s wedding the perfect event they had hoped for.”


Anyway, enough blowing my own trumpet, have a peep at Alex and Katie’s Sparkford Hall wedding photography and have judge for yourself…. Great couple, great venue, great wedding!
