Maunsel House wedding preview: congratulations Kate and John!

A bride and groom laughing with chickens behind them


It was such a pleasure to return to Maunsel House for Kate and John’s wedding day. It’s a venue that I have photographed weddings at many times over the years, and I’m always excited to head back there. The beautiful grounds make it a wonderful place to shoot, but it is the interior of the house itself that sets it apart from anywhere else that I’ve ever been. With its very own bar inside the house, plus some of the grandest and most unusual rooms, it’s an absolute joy to photograph everything taking place there.

Kate and John had such a gorgeous wedding day there. I loved their relaxed late afternoon ceremony, and we were lucky enough to have the most glorious spring day and a whole load of golden sunshine. It must have been feeding time for the chickens, as they seemed rather excited to see us when we headed across the lawn for some photographs, chasing Kate and John for attention – it made me laugh! Here is a preview of the images from their gorgeous wedding at Maunsel House.
