In August we were back at the beautiful Somerset venue Dillington House. There’s something special about this venue so we were thrilled to be back there again to provide Sonia and Tat’s wedding photography at Dillington House.
We met Sonia and Tat for a pre-wedding shoot up at Haldon Forest (I must blog these images – such a gorgeous set) and had such good fun and free flowing conversation – as well as Sonia and Tat being absolute naturals in front of the camera! We knew we were in for a treat working with them, and we were not disappointed!
We learnt during the shoot that despite meeting in London at a house party, Sonia and Tat are not only from the same country, or city, or even village – but from the very same street but had never met before! What are the chances of that? I firmly believe fate had a hand here as these two wonderful people couldn’t be more suited. We also learnt of Sonia’s great love of animals, so Sonia has a fan for life in me. (Tat is also a DJ, and so was Mike – a few years back – so even more common ground there!)
The day started with the guys and the girls in separate rooms, and the most chilled out, fun atmosphere as everyone got ready (and we have never seen so much whiskey for groom prep!).
The wonderfully personal humanist ceremony was taken by Pippa Hamilton, followed by Sonia and Tat dancing through their confetti line into their drinks reception to greet their guests, we wouldn’t have expected a standard walk though from these guys!
After the reception and a bit of time wandering though the beautiful gardens of Dillington House with Sonia and Tat, everyone headed off for the wedding breakfast, speeches and some pretty awesome Yam-Seng toasting at each table, which always makes for some pretty cool expressions! We loved Sonia and Tat’s entrance to the tune from the humming scene in the Wolf of Wall Street, such a cool touch!
The day followed with more golden light portraits, Tat’s absolutely brilliant DJ set (that party went OFF!!) replete with bongo player and saxophonist, straight into sparklers and fireworks, then a few games of beer pong and loads more partying.
You could say we were pretty happy photographers… made even happier with the lovely company of Chris at Babalu Films who was an absolute joy to work with.
We couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome or enjoyed ourselves any more, such a memorable day for everyone!
Here’s the feedback from Sonia & Tat
From Sonia: ‘We just watched it! We LOVE it! Captures the day exactly as it was. Thank you so very much. We are so happy to have the both of you to capture our big day!’
From Tat: Amazing, absolutely amazing!
Thank you so much for the pictures! We absolutely love them!! Was amazing! Spent the last hour going through it and it captured every single moment and emotion’.
We’re honestly thrilled to have been there, and so happy we did your day justice, guys!
Now – if you follow our blog, you’ll know how incredibly attached I get to each image, and the story behind it – so a brief blogger I am not – with so much energy and emotion I found it particularly hard not to over-select, hopefully there aren’t too many here!
All the love and energy in these images was brought to you by Sonia and Tat, and their utterly brilliant friends and family – we were just lucky enough to be there with our cameras. If you’re getting married and like what you’ve seen here with our Dillington House Wedding Photography, or if you’re having a wedding at Dillington (or any other venue on this fine planet) and you like what you see, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
