Niki and Paolo’s big day was full of absolutely gorgeous moments. It was gloriously sunny, and it seemed like everywhere I looked there was something beautiful and emotional going on. There was so much awesomess at this glamorous St Audries Park wedding, that I wouldn’t blame you if you just want to skip ahead and dive right in.
This was an international wedding. A lot of Niki’s family are Croatian and Paolo’s Canadian, and the two families got along like a house on fire. The Somerset venue that the couple chose to celebrate their marriage is truly one of the most beautiful in the country if you ask me. I’ve shot there once before, and was thrilled to be asked back. This stunning setting, Niki’s elegant gown, the epic sunset and more heartfelt hugs and incredible dance moves than you can shake a stick at make this wedding really special. Get ready to feast your eyes!
Gorgeous Glamour and Happy Tears at St Audries Park
This glamorous St Audries Park wedding was one of the most emotional that I’ve ever shot. It was so clear to see just how adored Niki and Paolo are. Their friends and family were over the moon to be celebrating with them, and I loved how the couple took time to properly greet and thank every guest for being there. Niki and Paolo are a pair who can clearly give very good hugs! I started the day with both Niki and Paolo as they got ready. Niki spent special time with her parents. Meanwhile, Paolo shared laughs and cigars with his seriously dapper groomsmen.
We then moved to the gorgeous little church bordering the grounds of St Audries Park for the ceremony. Watching Paolo and his best man as they waited for the bride to enter gave me excited butterflies, and the smile he gave Niki as he saw her was so, so lovely. It’s making me emotional just thinking about it! The happy tears kept on flowing throughout the day, with the speeches flooring almost everyone in the room. The image of Niki wiping her new husband’s eyes is so sweet and touching – these two really are adorable.
The sunset at this glamorous St Audries Park wedding was something else – it gave me some beautiful golden light to work with. Then suddenly it was party time, and I wasn’t quite prepared for the moves that were about to happen! Just check out Paolo’s best man, who gave Michael Jackson a run for his money. It was amazing! We finished the night with sparklers and a fireworks display that had everyone ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’. It was a fittingly spectacular end to this gorgeously glamorous wedding day.
