Homme House Wedding Photography – Clare & Dean

Homme House Wedding Photography

I love going to a wedding venue for the first time, and after having an hour long walk around plus meeting Charlie who along with his wife, run and live at Hommes House, I knew it was going to be a good one! Homme house is not only a great building with gorgeous grounds, it is run as a wonderfully personal service. Couples get the venue for the whole weekend and have real scope to cater and water their guests as they see fit. You certainly aren’t on a wedding production line here!

One of the benefits of doing the level of research I do is making any semi set-up shots achievable efficiently, saving you time away from your guests, but also it allows me to get cute images like this which need imagination and planning for, but easy to actually get.

​Clare & Dean were very chilled (on the surface at least!) about the wedding planning, and also their wishes for the photography. They didn’t want awkward posed photos, preferring to get people being natural and enjoying the day. My kind of couple then!

One great thing about a venue like Homme House where everything is all under roof, is that not only is my photography time maximised, but I can also get a bit of everyone’s pre wedding prep, bride, groom plus guests arriving, along with capturing all the special details you spend so much time creating!

​One of the most dramatic moments at a Homme House wedding is the first moment the bride and groom see each other. With them separated by two perfectly aligned doors, they are opened in sequence to spectacular effect and I’m not ashamed to say even brought a lump to my throat as Clare and her father made their way down the aisle. Clare going a step further with a tear rolling down her cheek which I was over the moon to have captured.

​With the sun making an appearance the reception was held on the lawn as the fun really got underway! I had great fun shooting at distance getting some lovely, natural  moments, as well as a bit of socialising myself leading to some more amusing moments!

A great meal was served by Jacks kitchen (which I can vouch for having eaten far too much myself!),and before you know it, we’re into the evenings drinking curtesy of The Mobile Pub Co & Modern Vintage band with the tunes, giving a chance for me and my camera to let our hair down and join the fun!

I great day where Clare, Dean and their guests made me feel part of the party, and I’m so pleased they love the photos.

Genuinely Amazing

Lee was absolutely amazing from start to finish. From our initial call to when we met before the wedding and all throughout the wedding day. We had really wanted the photographs to be natural, capturing guests having a good time. It was important to us that we also got to enjoy our day and we didn’t want to be taken off for long periods for photo shoots. Lee took on board everything we said and he was so discrete during the wedding. He was in fact, so discrete I could hardly believe he managed to take all the photos he did! In just over a week, we had our photos back and they are genuinely amazing and we feel they have really captured the feelings we had on the day. It was great for us to relive some really special moments looking back at the photos. I would recommend booking Lee any day and I suspect he is going to get hugely popular very quickly! He clearly loves what he does and this is key to hiring anybody involved in a day as special as a wedding. You are 100% in safe hands with Lee.
