We just loved Sarah and Lee’s colourful, flower filled wedding. They were the most wonderful couple to plan the big day with, from their first visit to Pennard through the planning and the day itself they were happy and gentle and really enjoyed it all. When it came to the day their wedding was just like them – full of love, laughter, colour and family. This gorgeous wedding was featured on the amazing Mr and Mrs Unique blog, click here to see more.

Emma and Saket’s Indian inspired wedding took place at Pennard House in September 2017 and will be particularly loved by flower lovers. Emma’s mum is a florist and supported by two further florists the wedding was a wonderful frenzy of autumnal floral colours. We particularly loved the incredible autumn hedgerow inspired installation on the staircase.  The roses in the gardens at Pennard were also still in full bloom, making everything look colourful and beautiful.

I’m passionate about flowers and I knew from the outset that flowers had to feature in a big way at our wedding. I’m very fortunate that my Mum is a florist and flower grower and we spent many hours together coming up with ideas. We designed a spectacular installation for the staircase, inspired by a countryside hedgerow.”

The sun shone, creating a perfect setting for Emma and Saket’s outdoor ceremony. Guests were then treated to a specially designed feast of authentic Indian dishes, breads and chutneys. Emma styled and planned everything herself, and has now gone on to offer her planning services to other couples – click here for more info.

It was such a pleasure to host such a lovely relaxed wedding.  To see more photos, have a look at the post on the gorgeous Rock My Wedding blog. Images by www.helenliskphotography.co.uk

The gorgeous couple Emily and Kyle were married in the garden at Pennard in August 2017. Emily, the beautiful bride in her exquisite Temperley Obelia dress stole the show in every way, so much so, she caught the attention of the team at Love My Dress.

“I fell in love with my Temperley dress instantly. It’s so unique with gold and white embroidery and is bohemian but with a glamorous twist. A touch vintage with modern geometric patterns, it felt romantic, floaty and utterly unique! Alice Temperley is a local Somerset designer, so it felt like it was meant to be.”

Creating the perfect Somerset wedding, using local designers and suppliers, we at Pennard couldn’t have asked for more in a wedding couple. Emily says,

“I wanted to get married close to my family home and use all local suppliers. It had exactly the right feeling we wanted. A pretty English country house with a festival boho vibe complete with tepees and Glastonbury connections.”

And we’re so glad we were able to work with them both to make their wedding dreams come to life.

Without further ado, fill your soul with warmth and love, and take a look at these stunning photos shared on Love My Dress.


During a week of balmy summer weather in June, Pennard House welcomed back Chris Difford and his cohort of budding musical artists for the Chris Difford Songwriting Retreat.

It is a week where Pennard comes alive with music. Sponsored once again by the Buddy Holly Educational Foundation, this year there were a total of 40 artists from around the world, both successful and up-and-coming songwriters and artists spanning all music styles.

Every day they broke up in to groups to write songs, using any available space in the house, gardens and even the village hall. The songs they wrote that day were performed in the evenings in the Coach House, which local villagers came to listen to. One evening we were lucky enough to have some incredible acoustic performances outside the Coach House.

The final evenings performances saw the best songs of the week played in a concert in East Pennard village church. It was packed full of almost 150 spectators who got to see incredible performances by Kimmie Rhodes, Robert Vincent, Louise Goffin, Beth Neilson-Chapman, Judith Owen, Grace Pettis, Julia Fordham to name a few. All presented by Chris Difford (Squeeze) and ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris.

Below we share a photo round-up of the week at Pennard.

So many great scenes from Rebecca and Joseph’s outdoor summer wedding at Pennard House, ensured it got a write up in Rock My Wedding’s real wedding feature. From the sun drenched wedding ceremony in the garden, the couple shots at sunset, and the atmosphere at the reception, every moment shows the happiness and love emanating from this fantastic couple.
