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!
