Wells wedding photographer

Hi there, I am guessing you have landed on this page because you are getting married in Wells and you are looking for a Wells wedding photographer. My name is Warren and I am a well established Somerset wedding photographer living in Bristol with my wife and two sons. I have been photographing weddings all over the country for over ten years and I will travel anywhere if the date is free because photographing weddings is my passion! If you live locally we can go for a coffee and go over your wedding plans or we can arrange a Skype call and get to know each other this way.

Welcome to England’s smallest city, big things come in small packages and this one is bursting with history. Take a trip into medieval England with a visit to Somerset’s famous historical city of Wells. A magical slice of the past, Wells is a small picturesque Somerset city, earning its city status from its resplendent cathedral, overflowing with history, nature, adventure and artisan craftmanship, Wells is quintessentially English. Hugged by the famous, grass green Mendip hills and interspersed with rivers and streams, Wells is the perfect advert for the English countryside.

A must see for fans on the bucket list of history and architecture, then there are those who want to see the filming locations for Poldark, Dunkirk and The Huntsman amongst others. Marvel at England’s Gothic past at historic Wells Cathedral, looking as if it touches the sky, the mesmerizing  medieval structure is guaranteed to take your breath away. Imposing and kitted in a dazzling pale stone, this Grade 1 listed building has played an important role in British history since the 8th Century. Alongside England’s greatest collection of stained glass, there are statues, pointed and scissor arches, fan vaulted ceilings and fluted piers to see, if that’s not enough, there is also Britain’s second oldest clock and the heaviest set of ten bells in the world. Spot the Cathedral from the stunning gardens of 17th Century Milton lodge, Grade 2 on the register of historic parks and gardens of special historic interest in England.

From the drawbridge to the moat white swans and portcullis of Bishop’s Palace and gardens, you will be forgiven for expecting to see a knight on a white horse trotting around. Home to the Bishops of the diocese since the 12th Century, spot the three famous Wells pools that trickle to the moat. Step onto the cobbled path of Europe’s oldest residential street, Vicars Close, gaze at the handiwork of the original 14th Century houses, with a view to the Cathedral ahead. For a change of pace head to Wookey Hole caves, visit the museum and try not to get lost in the magical mirror maze.

Take a look around the charming Wells and Mendip museum or pick out some artwork, ceramics or jewellery by local artists at the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen. For something a little more adventurous there is canoeing, kayaking, bush craft and more at Mendip outdoor pursuits, not too far away. Walk to the top of Ebbor Gorge to be rewarded with remarkable views from the top, or if you really want a challenge, take a hike up the world’s famous Glastonbury Tor.
