What a place Penny square barn is to have a wedding reception! It is located in such a beautiful part of Somerset, the perfect setting for Bee and Danny’s wedding. The day itself was really special and clearly took a lot of planning, this wedding had the lot! I photographed Bee and her bridesmaids as they spent most of the morning getting ready at her mothers house in Somerset then I went to see Danny and the boys getting ready in an old farm where they were staying for the weekend.
The ceremony was held in the beautiful grounds of St. Mary the Virgin Church at Batcombe and what an entrance Bee got, as she entered the church and walk down the aisle with her mother the whole wedding congregation clapped and cheered! After the ceremony, Bee left the church and went across to her father’s grave with her new husband, knelt down and spent a minute together on their own, it was a special moment from the day and I feel privileged to have captured it. From the church at Batcombe everybody headed to Penny Square Barn for the wedding reception, it was my first time at the barn and it has such a beautiful vibe, a really cool place to photograph a wedding.
The drinks reception on the field in front of the marquee has the most splendid view of the Somerset hills, it was also perfect weather so everybody stayed outside, drank champagne, ate canapes and played games. Once the speeches were over, everybody made their way to an open fire pit next to the barn, the DJ began her set and everybody started the party. A poem was read before everybody entered the barn and from there on it was a full 3 hour set with Danny’s brothers band, even the bride and groom climbed on stage for a song!

Penny Square barn wedding photographer
I am guessing you have landed on this page because you are getting married in Somerset and are looking for a Penny Square Barn photographer. My name is Warren and I am an established Somerset wedding photographer and I have been photographing weddings all over the UK for the last ten years. Most of my weddings are across the South West of England but I have photographed weddings in France, Tunisia and as far afield as Australia and the United States, I love to travel so I will go anywhere if the date is free!
I will arrive at your wedding venue the day before your wedding day to make sure I am there and ready to go early in the morning because I want to capture your day from the beginning right until the very end. As your wedding photographer I will work to creatively capture your wedding from the minute you start to get ready, up until the last song. I want to timelessly document the emotion and present you with a beautiful collection of wedding photographs.
You will put so much time into organising your wedding, you need a photographer that will work just as hard to capture all the moments that matter. As you can see from my portfolio I observe what is happening and document it using natural light where possible to create beautiful,emotive photographs. We can arrange a time for portraits in the evening but apart from that I just capture the wedding exactly how it happens. It does not matter how big or small your wedding will be or where it is, I would love to be there. If you love my style, and you feel a connection with my work then please get in contact using the details below.
Thank you for your time.
