As-well as consultations/meetings for your wedding photography with your formal/group photographs all noted in advance, we also like to do a pre-wedding shoot where possible. We see this as a vital part of the preparations for your wedding. Getting to know all our brides and grooms before the weddings means we’re not strangers to you on your day. This really does reflect in your photographs as you’ll both be more relaxed around us. It’s also a chance for you to see how we will be on your day. After the shoot a selection of the images are edited and put up on your weddings private gallery on our website where you can choose a complimentary 12″x8″ print.
We’ve known Andi & Tom for a good few years and we were delighted when they booked us to shoot their wedding at the end of February this year. Even though we knew them we still wanted to take advantage of the pre-wedding shoot. With the flooding being such headline news we thought we would head slap bang into the middle of it after we made sure the roads from Bridgwater were clear first. With our wellies at the ready we headed for the village of Burrow Bridge, specifically to climb Burrow Mump, an ancient monument site on the Somerset Levels dating back to the Roman times, to see the extent of the flooding.
After lots of slipping and sliding, and watching another walker slide halfway down the mump, we got to the top to see the extent of the flooding all around. Looking towards Taunton the A361 road that leads out of Burrow Bridge was totally underwater as far as the eye could see! Another photo we’ve seen was of the Willow s & Wetlands Visitors Center on this road with flood waters over 7 feet deep – up to it’s roof! It’s incredible and so unbelievably sad to see all the people it’s affected. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to those who’s homes and businesses have been ruined by the flooding.
As the weather started to get a bit greyer with more rain coming in we decided to beat a hasty retreat.
We can’t wait for Andi & Tom’s Wedding this month.
