Cool and quirky Somerset wedding with Emily Black Photography (31)
FEATURED

Today I wanted to share something cosy, beautiful and romantic – one of our last winter weddings of the blog season, I imagine – and one of the loveliest for sure. My fabulously talented friend Emily Black Photography captured this beauty at Maunsel House in Somerset. The stunning bride and groom are Rosie and Craig, whose day was full of fun, laughter and happiness as they celebrated with family and friends.

I love Maunsel House for its fascinating quirky character – this is one of Somerset’s favourite wedding venues and one of mine – I’m fairly sure it’s one of Emily’s as well! The doves make for an epic wedding photo, and there are peacocks and chickens wandering around as well. Inside, the house is full of romantic charm with unique decor and paintings on the wall, as well as incredible bedrooms for your guests to stay in too.

Today’s gorgeous couple Hannah and Tom had plans for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony at Sibton Park… and the sun shone until the very last minute, when it poured. Not to be outdone, they brought everything inside and had a cosy, magical ceremony and celebration indoors. I love the smiles, the laughter, the ‘we’re all in this together‘ spirit of the day, and I simply had to share this wedding with you.

“Our venue wasn’t a wedding venue. It is a country house that you hire to stay in. We just hosted a wedding while we were staying there. This meant I had to arrange getting EVERYTHING for the wedding in so all decorating was done by us. It did mean that it was unique to us and we were able to choose just what we wanted. Sibton Park had had a handful of weddings there before us and the house staff were incredibly helpful. They have since become a bit more of a “wedding venue”.”

Claire and Nico’s wedding is fabulous – full of pretty homemade touches and all with the help of their wonderful family and friends. The flowers are stunning, the rustic wooden props and accessories look gorgeous!

“Our wedding was the happiest day of our lives… totally perfect! I wanted something really chilled and relaxed, nothing too styled or formal. It was very much a homemade affair styled around the English countryside, relaxed, and shabby chic!

Lots of the bits and pieces were homemade. My amazing mum made 180 metres of beautiful bunting, the cake (and not just one – there were so many practice runs that we were all sick of the sight of cake by the time the wedding arrived!), the wedding favours (lovely vanilla fudge) and far too much else to mention. I spend weeks steaming labels off jam jars and covering them in twine, making the table plans by hand and so on…
