Jess and Gus chose to get married at North Cadbury Court in Somerset, and wow did they pull off an awesome weekend for their guests!! As far as wedding venues go, this one has it all, including a casino in the basement for the after party. Yep, a casino… and with the house to themselves all weekend, it was the perfect place to bring on the celebrations!!!
We have to pause here to reflect on the emotional side of the day; Jess and her family said goodbye to her dear brother in 2017 after a battle with cancer (ugh, how much we hate that dreaded c word). Having photographed Jess’ sister’s wedding the year before, it was poignant to return and feel the absence of this very special member of the family, and the memory of Sid brought everyone even closer together. Jess’ brother-in-law Barney did a beautiful reading in Sid’s absence, and the room was filled with love, heartache and memories.
After a spectacular engagement in the mountains in India, Jess and Gus brought together this stunning vision for their wedding day where – most importantly – their friends and family could celebrate, feast, toast, laugh and cry, and have an unforgettable weekend together. Here’s to Jess and Gus, a truly sweet, fun couple; may your future be full of exciting new adventures together!!!
Come back soon for more photos and Jess and Gus’ wedding film, and if you’re getting married at North Cadbury Court, we’d love to hear from you!
