Maunsel House wedding photography: Lisa & Nick in the pouring rain

I hadn't been to Maunsel House before I met Lisa and Nick.  When we first got together to talk about their wedding photography they told me how amazing their venue was and how they couldn't believe their luck in finding it.  So I had quite a build up before I actually got there.  But Maunsel House was still an incredible discovery for me - just such an exciting venue with so much possibility in terms of photography.  Not to mention an awesome place to celebrate your wedding!

Lisa and Nick had been planning an outdoor ceremony on the front lawn for over a year.  I met up with them in April to carry out their engagement photography and we talked about how mixed the weather had been, but laughed about how much better it would be in July.  Wrong!!  On the day of the wedding, 7th July 2012, the rain was absolutely battering the South West, which was issued with a severe flood warning... the ceremony was moved indoors...  but the amazing thing was, it just didn't matter.  Despite all the outdoor dreams, the indoor spaces at Maunsel House created a perfect backdrop for the day and it was just fantastic!  The ceremony was absolutely stunning in the Ballroom, and the guests all enjoyed relaxing on the leather sofas in the library, grabbing a quick pint (or two) in the bar and exploring the incredible spaces around the house.

The rain was just about easing off as everyone moved outside for the hog roast under the pergola at 9pm, but by then it didn't matter at all.  Lisa said that the rain had actually made the day better, as all the guests had come together in the inside spaces in a way that they may not have done otherwise.  I loved having the opportunity to use the unusual and quirky interior spaces in the house for Lisa and Nick's photography.  It was a really special day and I look forward to returning to Maunsel House again next year!

  1. Helen, you did such an amazing job!!
    You’ve been an absolute pleasure to work with, from the very first contact you were so helpful, and your enthusiasm is really infectious. You put two camera shy people completely at ease in front of the camera for the engagement shoot. On the day itself you were completely unobtrusive and blended in with everyone, not to mention working your butt off!!
    And the results speak for themselves, we’re over the moon with them.
    We’ve had amazing feedback from all our friends and family about how lovely you were, and how much they too love the photo’s. The comments we’ve received range from “Wow” to “Stunning” and everyone loved the way you captured the emotions of the day which was precisely what we wanted.
    We can’t wait to see the album!
    Lisa & Nick x
