This Almonry Barn Wedding Shoot is just gorgeous. This beautiful barn is an 800-year-old gem, situated in the glorious Somerset countryside. Boasting architectural texture, romantic lighting and rustic elegance, its the perfect setting for the style-conscious couple. And I’m delighted to be one of their preferred suppliers.

The overall feel for the shoot was a stylish, modern look with a relaxed bohemian style. Whilst at the same time elegant and romantic. ‘Californian Dreaming’ perfectly encapsulates the vibe. And illustrates that you don’t need to fly to the West Coast . You can achieve your ‘California Dreams’ on your doorstep in the stunning surroundings of the West Country.
