Emily is one of the oldest friends (see embarrassing and cute photo to the left)
I know most of the family so it really was a pleasure to photograph her and Sam's Somerset Wedding.
Sam is a sheep farmer by trade so the couple chose a fitting countryside setting for the big day.
The bridal preparation took place in a beautiful farm cottage, followed by horse and carriage ride to the small village church for an intimate and emotional ceremony.
Horses, Helicopter and Hay Bales
Emily has always owned horses so it was important for them to be part of her special day.
After the church, we stopped to visit Emily's horse in local stables.
Sam casually mentioned at the stables that there was a helicopter waiting in a nearby field as a surprise!
I had thought he was joking ...but no!!
What ensued was a mad dash through the field to try and beat the horse and cart and set up a good shot.
Thankfully I beat them to it!
The reception was held in a rustic barn, it had been decorated beautifully, with homemade bunting, confetti and cupcakes galore.
As the guests made the most of the homemade cider the thunder and lightning started!
The couple, myself and the bridesmaids took shelter in a hay barn, which as fate would have it made my favourite images of the day.
It just proves that even with thunder storms, horses and surprise helicopters you can still have the perfect and unique day.
