St Decumens Church, Watchet, Somerset a Quaint little church, where I'm due to shoot a wedding shortly... the setting reminds me of a smugglers church where I can easily be transported back to the 1780's

Bank Holiday Monday. What better way to spend it than some personal Shooting time, and seeing as we'll be at the Steam Gala 1st and 2nd August it seems time to enhance the train portfolio.

Here is Kinlet Hall passing near Crowcombe this morning

Sunset by the beach at a recent wedding I shot. This was just an awesome location to hold a wedding, on the clifftops above the sandy beach with the waves crashing in the background.

Wookey Hole is a collection of caves deep in the mendip hills, close to wells. The journey into darkness starts however with a longish walk up a quite steep slope, before you are greeted by the large wooden door that guards the entrance to the caves. Once inside you are greeted by "The Witch of Wookey" who lived in the caves centuries ago, who tells you the story of the caves, how Neanderthals lived there, and shows you various stone formations, using sound and light. The caves are as you would expect dark and damp, not suitable for disabled visitors. The caves themselves have been used in a number of TV and films, including a classic Cyberman episode of Tom Baker's Doctor Who. They also use the caves for concerts as the acoustics are apparently very good and they even store cheese here now as the temperature of the caves remains quite constant, therefore maturing the cheese at the right pace. Once out of the caves there are a number of other attractions to keep you busy including the "Dinosaur Park", The superb Penny Arcade, where you can swap some modern coins for some Victorian pennies and go back in time to play the machines or see "What the Butler Saw"... There is also a great mirror maze, I bumped my head a few times I can tell you, (a tip here, hold out your hand!!). You'll also find a fully operational paper factory, where you and the children can learn how paper was made here and even take a sample home, yes you get to make paper.. We had an excellent time here, the attractions kept us busy for a good four hours, but you could easily spend more time here than that. Oh and watch out as they are currently blasting into a new chamber at the moment, so you might hear a few large bangs in the caves :)

If you are filling up with fuel, just hold the pump away from the tank for a short while and watch the gauges count up on there own, while no fuel is dispensed. There is only 1 disabled parking space which often gets used by non disabled as it's closest to the cash machine. Oh and recently my children got knocked down on the forecourt and the Manager did nothing, even said she knew nothing about it, and couldn't even be bother to get off her seat to go and have a look and make sure they were alright after the driver drove away from the scene.

If you are getting married this is one venue you really MUST consider. I've had the privilege of photographing a number of weddings here and can honestly say it's just awesome. The house is amazing, from the giant main hall to the music room and the dining room. The main hall boasts a large open fireplace and wood beams and panelling on the walls and floors, really giving a sense of quality. The Orangery is where the ceremony takes place, and this is just a superb venue, very light and very well presented. Oh and they have a large herd of deer on the park including Dave the Stag.. The staff are just amazing including Claire, Alyson and Lynne, and can't do enough to help. The food is just incredible.... I always look forward to returning

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at this location. The scenery is fantastic, you look out of the big bay windows straight out onto the ocean, the waves crashing on the sandy beach. The staff were very helpful and friendly, offering assistance by helping with the lighting at the venue. The food was excellent quality, hot and very well presented and very good value for money. Whilst there we enquired about hiring a caravan at the park and were very surprised by the low cost. I highly recommend this venue for your wedding day or for a casual meal out.

Who doesn't love steam trains? This is a working steam/diesel railway that spans from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, with stations along the way. It's a fantastic step back in time, run by volunteers. The car-parking is very generous, with plenty of spaces near the platform for disabled and easy access via a ramp to the platform for disabled passengers. The trains pass through some of the best countryside Somerset has to offer, from the green fields to running along the coast at Watchet and Blue Anchor. The staff are very helpful and very knowledgeable in terms of history and timetables and clearly love what they do. I've not done it yet, but you can pay to be a fireman/driver for the day and have an experience that all train lovers will enjoy.

A Great day out for all the family.. There is surprisingly quite a lot here to entertain the children including, reptiles (which you can hold) a marionette show which is well worth watching, the personal favourite was the skeleton (dem Bones dem Bones etc). Outside there is a "Zoo" with a collection of animals, don't expect lions or tigers or even elephants, but the ones there include lemurs, birds, rats and emu. You can also pay extra and be a "Keeper for a day" which gets you even closer to the animals. While the children were enjoying themselves on the pirate ship we took the opportunity to relax and enjoy a picnic. All in all a very worthwhile day out, oh... watch out for the traffic works right outside going on at the moment.. should be finished by summer 2015 but you never know

This is my usual optician, they offer a fast and efficient service, the staff are always friendly and helpful (I do hate the eye test part where they put air into your eye!!) there is a large range of frames available including designer frames. They offer contact lense services, although I've never used them (too scared!!)
