“Being local and having followed Ryan’s career and work on Facebook for several years, booking him for our wedding photography was one of the easiest decisions we made in planning our wedding. We knew we wanted reportage style photos, in-fitting with the relaxed vibe of the day and boy did Ryan deliver. We can’t thank him enough for capturing our day so perfectly and will cherish these photographs for a life time and more. Ryan is a total natural, he got us and our vision for the day from day dot and made everyone feel so comfortable.”

I loved being a Old Summer Dairy wedding photographer back in August; particularly because this wedding screamed relaxed and chilled out vibes and I didn’t expect anything different from the Bregeta and Tom from their totally personalised wedding. Old Summer Dairy is a very unique wedding venue in the middle of Somerset with total flexibility on decorations, proceedings, food, drink and pretty much anything else. And after tying the knot earlier in the week officially at Baths registry office, they had the entire venue to themselves to make it as personal as they wanted with the help of all of their family and friends chipping in and getting involved.

With British weddings, the weather is always going to be a concern and after driving out and visiting the venue a few days before so I knew exactly where I was going, the weather was not letting off and the rain was endless. At this stage the tipis were up, the decorations were being delivered and flowers being assembled, but no let off. But on the day the weather did a complete U-turn and surprised us all with the perfect amount of sunlight all throughout the stunning outdoor ceremony and portraits later in the day. They even had their first dance outside under the festoon lights which was a highlight for me as this doesn’t happen often.

From cutting the cake with their friends military sword, to smoke grenades, the day had plenty of surprises and It was a great day spent with joyful people and lots of memories, and I have Bregeta and Tom to thank for asking me to come along. Enjoy this preview and feel free to comment at the bottom too. I love to see what others think about my work.
