Colourful Wedding at Kingston Estate, Devon Wedding Photography || Laura & Matt

I am so excited to share my first wedding of 2017, and what an amazing start it was! I met Laura & Matt at a wedding fair at the beginning of 2016, and had the privilege of being their photographer for their colourful, fun & relaxed wedding at Kingston Estate, Staverton and ceremony at Marldon Church in February 2017.

The wedding they planned was a true reflection of them, a big celebration that was laid back and fun, with lots of colours, DIY touches and music, as they met performing in a band.

Combining purples, red & pinks, they brought all the colourful elements of the day together. Blue Geranium, Totnes, supplied the beautiful rose and lavender buttonholes.2 Relaxed, Fun, Colourful Wedding at Kingston Estate Devon Wedding Photography - bridesmaids on bed drinking champagne3 Relaxed, Fun, Colourful Wedding at Kingston Estate Devon Wedding Photography - brides Benjamin Adams wedding shoes and purseLaura’s shoes were from Benjamin Adams and her beaded box clutch bag from Accessorize. Handmade veil by De Voice and her Ivory & Co wedding dress were from Browns of Totnes, who source the most beautiful range of sample dresses; stylish, traditional and classic designer gowns.

For the bridesmaids, they went for two completely different dresses as another way to inject some fun and colour into the wedding! The lilac dress was from Kelsey Rose and the Purple dress was from Monsoon.4 Relaxed, Fun, Colourful Wedding at Kingston Estate Devon Wedding Photography - Browns of Totnes wedding dress hanging up5 Relaxed, Fun, Colourful Wedding at Kingston Estate Devon Wedding Photography - make up by Jade IslaJade Isla beautifully did all the ladies make up. Melissa Hood Hair Artistry did Laura’s amazing hair; with brushed out curls to one side and a loose plait to the other, incorporating a hair vine she found at a vintage market.

She was easy to talk to, understood what we were after and went out of her way on the day. The fact that she arrived early and left late on the day didn’t go unnoticed! Her stayed is very much on the candid side, rather than the stiff and formal. She captured moments throughput the day that expressed how happy and joyous it was! We can’t thank her enough and I would recommend Holly to any couple!”
