Another preview to share with you on what is a rather rainy Friday here in Devon. Yesterday I spent the day with Karina and Graham at the amazing Tunnels Beaches in North Devon. Despite the rain early on, the day finished with a spectacular sunset and Karina and Graham braved the beach (and rather cold sea!) for some amazing photos.
Another great wedding to share with you today, this time Sophie and Joe’s big day at Torre Abbey followed by the reception at Hamiltons Club in Torquay.
Here’s just a few of the day. Only 7 wedding left for me this year now!
My first mid week wedding in a little while took me to Rockbeare Manor yesterday for Kayleigh and Byron’s amazing wedding. I have had the pleasure of knowing Kayleigh and Byron for the past few years and it’s always great when friends choose you to be a part of their wedding.
Heres a few of my favourites of the day
What a weekend for the sunshine to return! This Saturday saw me photograph Jame's and Amy's wedding at the fabulous Upton Barn and Walled Garden.
Having known James from School I knew the wedding would be blast and it lived up to all expectations. The buzz and excitement of the prep in the morning continued through the full day and well into the evening. I'm lucky enough to shoot weddings for a living and days like these make my job one of the best in the world. Heres a few of the day to give a little idea of how it went down!
What a way to kick off the bank holiday weekend! Saturday I spent the day with Jamie and Lilly photographing their wonderful day in Devon.
I have known Jamie a little while and I always love photographing friends weddings and this was no different. So much fun was had and lots of laughs (aided by a top notch set of speeches) all through the day and Im sure well into the evening. Heres a few of the day before I go through the rest!
Yesterday was spent back at the marvellous Deer Park Country House is Devon for Jake and Vicky's wedding.
Despite the first wet wedding in a long time Jake and Vicky didn't let it put a dampener on their day and embraced it all. From the first thing walking through the door in the morning I knew this wedding would be great fun and the laughs from the morning continued throughout the day (some incidents with fountain water and a sharpie probably producing the most!).
Heres a few I think sum up the day, hope you like them!
'So we have a bouncy castle, some archery and a mechanical bucking sheep coming in the evening' Fiona explained at our pre wedding meeting, this was the point in which I knew it was going to be a great wedding to photograph and I wasn’t wrong.
Yesterday I travelled to the wonderful Caldicot Castle in South Wales for Gareth and Fiona's big day. The castle itself is almost 1000 years old and made for an amazing backdrop for the day. Loads of fun was had by all and I'm sure it continued well into the evening. Heres a few that show off the day!
Next up is Dan and Emma's wedding at Pynes House just outside of Exeter. It seemed like the good run of weather had finally come to an end but with breaks of sunshine we still had enough time to get out for some photographs in the wonderful grounds.
With so many fun photos to choose from it was difficult to little it down to only 25 for the sneak peek but heres some of my favourites of the day!
The first of this weekends double header took me to Brympton House in Yeovil on Friday for Tom and Ellie's big day and probably one of the rowdiest and most fun weddings I have ever had the opportunity to photograph.
Me and my second shooter Sam certainly had a blast and I cannot wait to go through the rest of the photos but for now heres just a few of their day.
Midweek weddings are somewhat of a rarity for me so was super excited to be photographing Jade and Noel's big day yesterday up in Tetbury.
In terms of weddings it is right up there as one of my favourites. Lots of laughs and smiles mixed with plenty of emotion made my job so much easier. This, coupled with some of the nicest wedding guests I have come across really made for a special day. Before the rest hit the blog heres a few of the day.
Saturday brought about the first of 4 weddings in the next 7 days and what a way to kick it off! Lucy and Nick got married at the wonderful Higher Eggbeer in Devon. The amazing countryside was the perfect backdrop to a relaxed and fun day that was enjoyed by all.
I'm not sure I can put into words quite how much fun I had yesterday at Brad and Beckie's wedding. I've had the pleasure of knowing Brad and Beckie for the past few years and was super excited for their wedding. After over 150 weddings, it was probably my favourite to be a part of as there really is something special about capturing a friends big day!
Yesterday brought about my first wedding at Canonteign Falls for Sophie and Dave's big day. I've visited before and was super excited to get there for a wedding as the I knew the wonderful surroundings would make for some amazing photos and it certainly did not disappoint!
Yesterdays scorcher of a day took me to Rockbeare Manor just outside of Exeter for James and Paris's big day!
Heres a few of my favourites from the day!
Another weekend brings another corker of a wedding. Amy and Connor celebrated their marriage at The Old Barn in North Devon (one of my favourite venues!).
I seem to always be lucky to photograph the most amazing couples, Connor and Amy included. The day was so much fun to photograph and be a part of and them and all their guests made us feel so welcome despite the constant photographing for about 12 hours! Prior to the wedding I was warned of the potential for a raucous party and safe to say that was definitely the case and topped off with a Wurzels tribute act that got everyone in the mood for a sing song.
Anyway thats enough from me, heres a few to try and tell the story of an awesome day!
So yesterday was spent with the lovely Ste and Rachel for their wedding at The Woolacombe Bay Hotel in North Devon.
Set right opposite the sea it was a wonderful place to shoot and I always love getting down to the beach for some ace wedding pictures. Heres a few of the day, more to come soon!
Next up on the blog in Charmaine and Josh who got married at The Green in Conrwall. It was my first time visiting The Green and what a wonderful venue it was.
Charmaine and Josh had booked me almost two years ago now so was really excited to see what they had planned. Luckily the outdoor ceremony remained dry and the day was so relaxed and fun it really was a joy to photograph. Heres a few (of many) favourites of the day!
Time for another sneak peek this time for Abbie and Chris who tied the know at The Oak Barn! Heres a few of their day:
Had the pleasure of photographing two wonderful weddings this weekend. First up on Saturday was Bex and Jedd's wedding at the family farm.
Luckily the weather held off for most of the day so we could make use of the amazing (seriously amazing) surroundings! I don't think a set of only 30 or so images can do the day full credit but heres to trying - full set will definitely be up on the blog soon!!
Sneak peek of Katie and Davids big day at the lovely Whitemoor Farm in North Devon.
