Imperial Hotel, Torquay Wedding Photography || Em and Joe

The second ever email I received from Em was filled with pictures about their dream wedding; Em’s dress and shoes, the suits, the venue, flowers, table decorations and a bit about them. I just knew I had to be their photographer!

We hit it off over a hot drink when they visited from Bedford and as well as meeting them, I met Em’s lovely parents too, who have a gallery in Cockington Village and who, on the day, were wonderful and kind, and sent me home with a box of their fudge <3

Em and Joe’s love and happiness just radiate from these photos, I’m so proud to have been their photographer.Imperial Hotel Torquay Wedding Photography, glittering gold and emerald green colour scheme_0002 bridal dresses, vivienne westwood shoes and a bucket of gypsophilia flowersEm’s beautiful Pronovias dress, which she amazingly found on eBay for a slice of the £2200 price tag, hangs with her Vivienne Westwood Ladydragon shoes and gypsophila bouquet by Alison Potts.
