Exeter Wedding Photography at Rockbeare Manor – Laura and Dan’s Beautiful Devon Summer Wedding

Laura and Dan got married at my favourite venue, Rockbeare Manor, which helped inspire the style of their wedding! With so many ideas and weddings on Pinterest and Instagram, choosing a theme or style for a wedding is quite daunting. After lots of research and deliberation on colour schemes, dresses and flowers they decided actually, let’s just keep it simple, pick a stunning venue and pray for a beautiful sunny day – and they were lucky!

Being such a beautiful manor house in a glorious countryside setting with lots of classic period features, they tried to keep true to this feel with their styling. They wanted their day to feel relaxed with some understated glamour, so opted for lots of greens, whites and neutral tones teamed with a touch of gold and natural woods to create a modern rustic vibe.

It was an absolute joy to capture all the beautiful memories they made this day!

Canonteign Falls Exeter Wedding Photography – Eleanore and Ryan’s Colourful, Fun Day

Canonteign Falls is a venue I’ve wanted to shoot at for years, so I was absolutely delighted when El and Ryan booked me for their wedding here! They wanted a relaxed, chilled out day surrounded by nature and their loved ones. Their styling was beautifully eclectic with all the different colours, bottles, greenery and cars. Their families and friends put so much effort into decorating the barn and helping with a long list of DIY tasks – it really made it feel personal. Everyone traveled for the wedding, making a long weekend of it. It was a day of good food, good music, booze, and awesome cars! A day even better than they imagined!

I loved El’s dress, it went perfectly with their venue choice and vibe of the day. It was an ex-sample Farah by Watters, but was much too big originally. El loved the leaf details and the fun floaty tulle, so it was masterfully alterred by Tailoress design. The gorgeous blue bridesmaids dresses are Minnie by DZage, bought from ‘Not another boring bridesmaids dress‘.

Their hair and make up was done by the amazing Liz Parkins.

These gorgeous bright and colourful bouquets were done by In Bloom. All the flowers are grown sustainably in a field near Exeter. They bought big buckets of flowers and El’s dad arranged them into bottles for the reception. El tied the necklace her grandma wore on her wedding day round her bouquet.

El and Ryan wanted to get married outside by water and they fell in love with Canonteign Falls! They had their ceremony in the pagoda on the lake, which felt really intimate even with 80 people. They loved the blank canvas of the barn so they could put our own stamp on it.

All the decorations were homemade. They made the signs and apple crates out of old palettes, collected fancy bottles over 6 months with family and friends, and the greenery was from the Canonteign estate. The table names were painted on pages from an old atlas and the table plan was a DIY map of places they had traveled to – El is studying for a PhD in Geography, so maps were a must have. They had a few old family photos in frames and bridesmaid Emma made a big photo frame with loads of photos of El and Rye when they were at school where they all met. The lights are from Party Lights and tables and colourful chairs from The Prop Factory.

They wanted a chilled out BBQ, but something a bit fancier and tastier than a burger. They found Dan’s American Kitchen “OMG that man does some good pulled pork”. They also loved the ‘feast style’ serving yourself thing. Dan’s an ex-pastry chef so made their favourite desert, profiteroles, including gluten free ones for El.

Rye’s a mechanic and loves old american cars, it was the one thing he wanted on the wedding day, so they got the 1971 Corvette Stingray from Thunder Road. El’s always been a bit hippyish and thought the orange camper was very her. They had them as our cake toppers to symbolise each of them!

Their delicious cake was by Mad Cakes. El put a silver decoration on from her grandparents’ wedding cake on as they couldn’t make the journey to the wedding and they cut the cake with her great-grans cake knife as she passed away last year.

North Devon Wedding Photography at The Milky Way – DIY Film Themed Decorations and Dodgems!

This was my last full-day wedding of 2018. I had been eagerly looking forward to Abbie and Brock’s wedding since I received their first email telling me about their plans! Most notably, they told me that there would be dodgems, and they also intended to do their first dance on the track. It sounded amazing and I couldn’t wait to get photos of the dance and guests having fun in the cars!

The day was even better than I had hoped. The dodgems were indeed fantastic but there were so many personal touches to the day that made Abbie and Brock’s wedding extra special. The decorations, table plan, lighting, flowers, cake and photo-booth were all painstakingly made and provided by Abbie, Brock, their family and their friends. This wedding was very true to them, with so many touches and decorations celebrating their mutual love of films, and it meant that the whole day felt very personal to this amazing couple.

Abbie’s hair was styled by Rebecca Wannell, who also did her makeup.

Abbie was the first person to buy her design of dress by Stella York , which meant that they named the dress “Abbie” after her! She bought it from Love Bridal in Crystal Palace.

Brock’s mum Amanda provided the flowers for their wedding. She picked them from her own garden but she also makes and provided her own felt flowers for the buttonholes! These were put together by Amanda, with the help of Abbie and her bridesmaids.

Abbie and Brock chose a humanist ceremony for their wedding and it was officiated by celebrant Angie of One Love Ceremonies. Angie helped to make the ceremony incredibly unique to them, full of humour, love and… drams of whiskey!

In non-church ceremonies, I always miss the singing! I was delighted that Abbie and Brock included singing in their ceremony by having everyone sing songs by The Monkees and The Beach Boys, accompanied by their friend on guitar. It was awesome!

The cakes were a collaborative effort by friends and family. The fruit cake was made by Abbie’s mum Julie, the gluten-free elderflower and lemon drizzle cake was made by Brock’s mum and the carrot cake by their friend Hattie. They also had a ‘cheese’ cake from The Bath Soft Cheese Company!

Brock’s sister Amoria was responsible for the choreography for his and Abbie’s first dance. She had to teach them to dance first though – and they started learning months beforehand! The song choice was very easy though and again spoke of their love of films; “You’ve got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story.

Devon Wedding Photography – Best of 2018

Thank you to all the amazing couples who chose me to photograph their weddings this year! I wouldn’t be here, and this happy, without you. It means the world to me that you embrace me into your special days, and trust me to keep your memories safe.

This year I’ve edited and delivered over 17,000 photos for all my couples! It’s been damn near impossible to narrow it down to the hundred and something for this post.

I won’t waffle on, as words aren’t my forte and nothing I say ever feels enough to express the joy it brings me to be a wedding photographer. I hope the photos speak for themselves – here are my favourite moments of 2018! Thank you to everyone who’s made this year so memorable. You are the best.

Devon Wedding Photography – Heather and Shaun’s DIY Hand-made wedding at East Soar, Salcombe

Heather and Shaun were the first of their group of friends to get married. Heather says she felt a little under pressure to create an amazing day… but this was an absolutely incredible day for me to work at. It must have been even more amazing to attend as a guest!

They wanted their wedding to be a real experience for everyone, especially as lots of their guests were travelling from as far as Australia. Nearly everything was home-made, personal or both. Friends and family members contributed towards everything, from Heather’s dress to the decorations, from the food to the wedding cake. Also, most of the guests stayed for the entire bank holiday weekend. This created a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, where people who had never met got on like they had been friends for years. Everyone felt a part of it because so many helped set up the venue the day before and baked desserts for the day itself.

The whole day had a collaborative, feel-good factor that was a result of the effort and fantastic touches from so many people. Heather and Shaun were at the centre of it all, and they were such a wonderful, loving and fun couple to photograph. East Soar was the perfect rustic venue for this hand-made, DIY wedding. It looked beautiful decorated by everyone’s individual efforts and provided the perfect setting for this amazing wedding bathed in the Devon summer sun.

Heather had two pairs of wedding shoes. The first were a white satin pair from House of Fraser and her second comfy pair were from Toms.

Heather and Shaun chose the fantastic East Soar Outdoor Experience as their venue. It was not only a beautiful secluded, rustic venue. It also allowed their guests to all stay on site in bell tents for the whole bank holiday weekend. East Soar use the money they make from weddings to fund local schools, school trips and educational days.

Heather’s mum Mary made all the flowers, bouquets and decorations from her own homegrown ones. They then filled out some of the bouquets and arrangements with flowers from Wildflower Devon. Mary and Heather’s Auntie Joyce had been drying flowers for the confetti ever since Heather and Shaun were engaged in July 2017, which was a lovely touch.

Heather’s mum, Mary, made her stunning wedding dress. She got the lace from Bridal Fabrics and the crepe fabric from Butterfly Fabric Cardiff.  Heather says that she wanted a specific style of dress, so her mum had to work out her own dress pattern. She also hand-beaded the top and the end result was absolutely beautiful!

Floc Hair Salon in Kingsbridge styled Heather’s hair. LotusFloralArt made her dried flower hair pins, as well as the men’s buttonholes.

Heather had a clear vision of how she wanted their pageboys to look. She asked that they both wore shorts but the elder cousin didn’t want to look “like a little kid” – and so wore trousers instead! There was a certain symmetry here though. Heather told me that when she was 5, she refused to wear a dress at her aunt’s wedding and insisted on wearing a pageboy outfit to match her brother! InspiredByEvaStore made the handmade badges for the pageboys.

Heather gave her bridesmaids the colours that she wanted for their dresses, but the actual choices were all theirs! They used Monsoon, Asos, Topshop and the dark blue dress was even hand-made in South Africa! Heather says that she knew that one dress would not necessarily suit all of her bridesmaids. She was definitely rewarded for her bravery in allowing them to pick; they all looked fabulous!

Heather made all of the origami stars on the tables, as well as the numerous cranes, in the lead up to the wedding. Such a creative family!

I couldn’t write this blog post without pointing out how amazing Heather’s mum is! Mary not only made Heather’s wedding dress (!) She also made the floral decorations, bunting and prepared loads of the food. Yet the day as a whole was a collaborative effort, with huge contributions from Heather and Shaun’s aunts and friends.

Exeter Wedding Photography – Ashleigh and Stephen’s Relaxed Wedding at Rockbeare Manor

Ashleigh and Stephen said that they wanted their wedding to be informal and relaxed, and I certainly had a wonderfully enjoyable day photographing it. They travelled down to Devon for their wedding along with their family and friends. It was as though everyone was all the more grateful for their time away together and the atmosphere was absolutely amazing! All of the joy and hilarity took place in the wonderful setting of one of my favourite Devon wedding venues; Rockbeare Manor on the outskirts of Exeter.

Rockbeare Manor is amazing. The rooms are beautiful, the staff are always brilliant and its neutral interiors are perfect for couples to make it their own. Ashleigh and Stephen had a gold and coral colour scheme, giving it a bright and summery feel, which suited their relaxed and fun-loving personalities.

The sun sets just in front of the manor house and I was able to take lovely photos of the happy couple during golden hour. There was also a spot of cricket in the grounds in the evening; the perfect activity for a superb summer’s day and a wonderfully relaxed and beautiful wedding.

Ashleigh and Stephen’s incredible cake was made by Ashleigh’s friend Rosie. It featured a cute cork couple, a model of their beloved cockapoo Mango and a cricket ball lodged into the side! An awesome touch, especially when cricket was played later on in the day!

Stephen loves Oasis, so the table names were old vinyl records with Oasis songs upon them, each chosen to reflect the people sat at the table. The bridesmaids were on the “She’s Electric” table, whilst university friends, recalling old times, sat at “Cigarettes and Alcohol”. The top table was “Champagne Supernova”.
