We want to tell you the story about how we came to be friends with the incredibly talented Antti Karppinen.

Paul & Danielle married at Mausnel House with a twist, they went for a      Steampunk theme and when we say went for it, they really went for it.  Every little detail was covered, it was stunning and even won Wedding of  the Year for Bristol and Somerset.

Read here how Antti, Paul & Danielle became connected  which  led to  Danielle contacting us to ask if they were able to come back to the    house  and have a photoshoot with a fabulous photographer and we said “oh  course!”

Well… in true Paul & Danielle style they meant FABULOUS!

Antti was really taken with Maunsel as they don’t have Manor Houses like ours in Finland.  While photographing Paul & Danielle he took some images of the house and set them to us and we were blown away!

We were delighted to welcome Antti and his family back for a short break in Dairy Mead  cottage and while they were here we were able to give them a house and history tour.  Like an extra limb Antti had his camera attached to him and he snapped away once  more.

We will be sharing Antti’s pictures from his visits on a regular basis but if you are  anything like us you will want to follow him on a daily basis to keep track of all the  wonderful and exciting things he is getting up to!

We wish Antti continued success and are proud to call him a friend of Maunsel.
