Charlton House, Somerset: a lovely autumn wedding

Aaaaah, huge congratulations to Kate and James, who got married yesterday at the rather beautiful Charlton House in Somerset.  I really enjoy autumn and winter weddings - there is a particular quality to the light that you only get at this time of year, and I love the crisp feel in the air.  Charlton House was the perfect venue for an autumn wedding, with plenty of warm and welcoming indoor spaces for Kate and James and their guests to relax and celebrate in.  I loved the cosy feel late in the day, as the evening closed in outside and the candles were twinkling away indoors.  Having perfected the art of the international relationship, it was very fitting that the wedding was themed around travel, and the locations around the globe that were significant to them both.  I loved the stamp motif that Kate and James used to knit together their brilliant invitation with their reception theme.  Here is a quick preview of the images...

Those beautiful flowers are from Rachel at The Rose Shed; Kate's elegant hair was by Rosanne Dyer and fabulous bridal make-up by Kelly at The Barn, Somerset; that incredible dress was designed by Essence of Australia and fitted by Ann's Bridal Room, Leighton Buzzard; and that delicious, oozy pile of cheese was from Cannon & Cannon, Brixton.

    Stunning photos Helen! Thank you so much for making a perfect day so beautiful. You did an amazing job - both with formal and informal photos, and blended so quietly into the background we hardly noticed you were there. You made everyone feel relaxed and special. We can never thank you enough,
