First snow falls in Somerset

SNOW fell on a Somerset village a little earlier in the year than expected.

The white downfall was seen at Rookery Manor in Edingworth and the wedding venue was transformed into a winter wonderland.

Owner Ian Clapp has employed the services of Snow Business, famous for creating artificial snow and winter effects for film, television, live events – and now the most romantic of weddings.

The snow-covered 16th Century manor house and front gardens were unveiled at the Rookery Manor Wedding Exhibition, which offered free admission to everyone from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday.

It took the Snow Business crew nearly three days to cover the front of the manor in a blanket of snow – and set up a dry foam machine to ensure snow was gently falling on the exhibition day itself.
