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.Em’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. The emerald green bridesmaids dresses are John Lewis on awesome hangers made by Em’s sister and bridesmaid, Becci.
Hair and make up was provided by the lovely ladies at Neveah Nails and Beauty in Torquay.
I love this photo of Em’s parents, the way Derek looks at Lyn.And Em’s lovely grandparents, Jenny and Charlie.
Hold My Hand – Jess Glynn played as they walked down the aisle.
Em surprised Joe and his Dad, Dennis, with You’ll Never Walk Alone – Robson and Jerome as they signed the register!
Claire’s Cakes, Babbacombe, created this masterpiece of a cake with handmade sequins. I was also kindly provided with a gluten free cupcake with matching decor, thoughtful and delicious!
The wooden hearts were signed by everyone and slotted in the frame made by Apex Laser Craft, Torquay. An awesome take on the traditional guestbook.
I sat on the best table ever with these hilarious folk!
I couldn’t decide between colour, showing off the beautiful skylight, or the drama of the black and white, so here’s both!
Before the wedding, I came to the Imperial to scout out locations and sent Em a picture of this wall titled ‘I like this wall’. I’m so pleased we used it for some photos!
Doesn’t Em have the most beautiful eyes?!
Lyn and Dereks amazing fudge from The Old Granary, Cockington Gallery.Em and Joe danced their first dance to The One – Kodaline. Music and lights provided by the fab DJ Pepps Entertainment.
Em and Dereks father-daughter dance to My Girl – The Temptations was so fun and heartwarming!
For the reception, Em rocked a beautiful Vera Wang dress, with a lace added by Seams Perfect, Torquay.
You know it’s going to be a good one when the DJ plays the Macarena.And then The Time Warp!
