Today’s wedding is pure luxury, sheer joy and absolute beauty. Stunning bride Fern married her gorgeous groom James at Sherborne Abbey and celebrated with a beautiful reception at Brympton House in Somerset. Their day is captured by our friend and sponsor, Brympton House Wedding Photographer Martin Dabek, who is based in Somerset.

I tried on over 100 dresses and found it particularly hard to narrow the selection of styles down as I liked too many. My mum and I visited the Caroline Castigliano store in Knightsbridge and the sales assistant picked a gown I wouldn’t have chosen and the second I walked out in it, my mother had a tear to her eye. We then managed to accessorize it with the different trains, veils and belts to create the look for day and evening I was envisaging. The dress was also made to measure which was brilliant as it ensured it fitted like a glove on the day.

2016 must be the year of the barn wedding in the UK – I’ve seen so many amazing days from restored, converted, newly-loved barns – and Kim and Josh chose one of the very best for their rustic wedding in Gloucestershire. The photos are superb, and I especially love the bouquet… I’m loving all the greenery in bouquets right now! Kim is so beautiful – and there are some wonderful moments in here too. The first kiss shot is just perfect; and the venue is gorgeous.

We really enjoy our time at Great Tythe Barn weddings and the staff and suppliers are always a delight to work with. It’s a stunning barn venue for a Gloucestershire wedding. The guest accommodation and the beautiful Manor House make it perfect for the bridal party to get ready on the day of the wedding. With everything enclosed in the same grounds as the barn, it means we can get to everyone effortlessly all day.” ~ Kevin Belson Photography
