Hi there, I am guessing you have landed on this page because you are getting married in Yeovil and you are looking for a Yeovil wedding photographer. My name is Warren from Howell Jones photography and I am a well established wedding photographer in Bristol with my wife and two sons. I have been photographing weddings all over the country for the last 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 together or we can arrange a Skype call and get to know each other this way.
If you are getting married in Yeovil you have chosen a magical place of rolling English countryside embracing beautifully, historic buildings. Close to the county of Dorset, the southern Somerset town of Yeovil is a peaceful slice of natural beauty and English charm, from woodlands and alpacas, to engines, cider and planes, there is everything you need for a restful break in a fascinating spot. Yeovil takes its name from the delightful river that runs through the town. The Celtic name for the River Yeo is ‘gifl’ which means ‘forked river’. Renowned for its glove making during the Victorian era, Yeovil became a popular place to live, so there are many elegant historic buildings to see as you walk through the historic parts of the town.
Ninesprings (part of the Yeovil Country Park) is a must see magical woodland with springs, streams, water voles, swans and other magical treats from nature. Greeted by Selwyn Price’s Maori God sculpture at the car par, you’ll have fun playing hide and seek with all the others, hidden throughout the space. If not you can always follow the Yeovil Yellow Brick Road ! Take a leisurely stroll through the National Trust’s delightful Tintinhull Gardens. Created in the Victorian era by two passionate gardeners, there are different gardens, exquisite lawns, pools and a working cider orchard. Known as the gardener’s garden there is a space for a picnic or you can treat yourself at the cafe. If not there is always the rest of the Yeovil Country Park for acres of natural woodland and great walks or cycling. Whether you choose the Pen Hill Parks ornamental trees and amazing views, the endless grasslands of Summerhouse Hill full of hidden wildlife, Wyndham Hill with its lime trees or Riverside Walk’s meandering river, meadows and wildlife, you won’t be disappointed. With excavations revealing finds that can be traced as far back as the Bronze Age, there is plenty of history to unravel in Yeovil.
Getting married in Yeovil
When getting married in Yeovil, choosing a venue can be tricky, simply because there are so many beautifully varied choices as I am sure any wedding photographer in Yeovil would agree. Below I have listed some of my favourite venues as a well established photographer in Yeovil. The Manor Hotel, Brympton D’Evercy House and Northover Manor Hotel are all venues I would say are the quintessential, romantic, fairy tale venues. The Manor Hotel in Hendford dating back from the 18th Century, gives you 42 en suite bedrooms and is nestled with beautiful gardens, Brympton D’Evercy House with its exquisite Elizabethan Great Hall, is the perfect setting for a drinks reception and the ballroom has absolutely stunning views of the lake. Haselbury Mill which is situated just outside Crewkerne has buildings date back to William the Conqueror and has an additional Granary building with lakeside views.
