Wedding Photography at St Audries Park, Somerset
Freddie & Olivia
I’m so lucky to be a Somerset wedding photographer as Somerset has some simply stunning wedding venues. One such wedding venue is St Audries Park. This picture-perfect manor house is set in 100 acres of serene and tranquil deer park.
Its beauty hits you as soon as you turn onto the winding driveway and make your way through the parkland to catch your first glimpse of its dramatic Gothic entrance of the private Manor House, from where you can enjoy panoramic views that stretch across the rolling Quantock Hills and as far as the Bristol Channel.
St Audries Park are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in their Victorian orangery. A favourite with Somerset wedding photographers, as this glass structure is bathed in natural light that we can play with to create even more beautiful images.
