Devon Wedding Photography – Rosa and Oli’s Relaxed, Elegant Wedding at Lupton House, Brixham

This was my first wedding at Lupton House and it was an absolute joy; beautiful, elegant and featuring a wonderful couple in Rosa and Oliver. Rosa grew up in Brixham and misses the sea now that she lives in London, so it was amazing for her to get ready at Maypool Cottage, which couldn’t be closer to the sea! Lupton House was perfect for these nature lovers, with its beautiful Italian gardens, and they styled it perfectly with flowers and ivy. In the latter half of the day, Rosa donned a stunning flower crown and the speeches took place outside on the lawn. It really was the perfect venue and couple for a glorious spring wedding!

Devon Wedding Photography – I bet that you’ll look good on the dance floor!

One of my favourite parts of a wedding is when the newlyweds, having finished their first dance, beckon their friends and family onto the dance floor to join them for anything from a friendly disco to an all-out rave! The dance floor holds so many possibilities; brides letting loose, amazing lighting effects – as well as brilliant expressions and dance moves! As a documentary wedding photographer, I love being able to provide photos of fantastic and spontaneous moments that I hope my couples will always look back on with a smile.

A particular highlight of the dance floor is the bride letting her hair down. There’s certainly nothing “blushing” about these brides!

The main thing I like about the dance floor is that involves people laughing and moving spontaneously and naturally. They’re usually too busy experiencing joy with their friends and family to think about the photographer capturing them at their most fun – and this really does make for the best photos! I always tell my couples that their favourite shots will probably be those when they’re not posing for portraits but simply enjoying spending time with their friends and family. Hopefully this post will illustrate the best of natural, fun documentary photography!

One of the other brilliant aspects of the dance floor are the lights. Different lights provide different effects, including sharp lines, hazy glows and dashed lines that look sparkly, all of which I can use to create colourful lines framing the subject.

Devon Wedding Photography – Emily and Ray’s Rustic Wedding at Westcott Barton

I was so excited to be photographing Emily and Ray’s wedding; they told me that they were planning a rustic, fun and relaxed day and the venue, Westcott Barton in Devon, looked stunning. It turned out to be every bit as good as I hoped.

Firstly, the weather was fantastic and showed the superb gardens of Westcott Barton at their best. Secondly, Emily and Ray’s idea for their wedding worked so well with the venue. It had a laid-back, rustic feel all of its own and looked amazing with Catkin Bloom‘s complementary flowers and friends and family’s home-made decorations.The sign, bunting, table-runners and cake were all made by talented aunts and mums, and they looked fantastic. Blue Fizz Events helped plan, organise and coordinate the day, allowing Emily to relax and enjoy it! It was so laid back and enjoyable; they really did an amazing job.

All of this added up to a wedding that looked and felt absolutely incredible!

Emily’s dress was from Champagne and Charlotte Bridal Boutique. Unlike many brides, Emily loved all of the dresses! However, she instantly fell in love with her amazing Stephanie Alinn dress and she looked incredible in it. Emily’s beautiful hair was styled by Megan from Bob’s Hairstylist.

Emily and Ray’s cake was made by Emily’s aunty Becky and the decorations were all provided by friends, family and Emily herself. The home-made items were so good and fitted the rustic feel of Westcott Barton perfectly. The butterfly on the cake symbolised Emily’s grandfather, who sadly passed away shortly after she became engaged to Ray.

Emily wanted meadow flowers to complement her rustic wedding and provided Cath from Catkin Blooms with the pink, blue and green colours that she wanted. The resulting bouquets, centre-pieces and milk-churn arrangements looked fantastic and fulfilled Emily’s wishes perfectly!

Emily had seven bridesmaids so opted for a multiway dress from Debenham’s to suit them all. They all looked amazing!

Devon Wedding Photography – Autumnal Bickley Mill Wedding – Caroline and Dale

I first met Caroline and Dale at Em and Joe‘s wedding, which I photographed in 2015. I remembered them as a lovely, fun couple (especially on the dance-floor) so I was absolutely thrilled when I was given the opportunity to photograph their wedding.

It proved to be very true to them; great fun, with their friends and family central to the day. It began at their home with Caroline’s immediate family, bridesmaids and close friends, before driving to All Saints Church, Torquay, for a beautiful church service. Then we all moved to Bickley Mill in Devon for the reception. Anyone who has read my blog before may know that I love Bickley Mill, and its neutral interior really allows couples to make it their own. Caroline and Dale decorated it with amazing autumnal flowers and decorations that meant something to them, so it was not only beautiful but it was personal to them, too.

As a documentary photographer, I aim to capture emotions as well as people. It makes my job all the more enjoyable when I attend weddings where everyone is so natural and close with one another. Caroline and Dale said that they are not showy people but I think that this makes for the best photography. Their love for one another, their family and their friends was evident in so many natural moments (and I could not possibly fit them all in this post) that I would not have had them be more “showy” for the world!

Devon Wedding Photographer – Bickley Mill Relaxed Fun Wedding (1) Preparation

Caroline’s make-up was by Polished, a recommendation from her cousin. The effect was stunning but natural; people commented on the day that she looked like the best version of herself; I’d have to agree!

Vita from Flower La Vita was the first person to make Caroline cry when she arrived with the flowers!

Caroline’s wedding dress was from The Bridal Box in Torquay. She tried one dress (hated it) tried a second and loved it! Her mum burst into tears when she saw her, so she knew that this had to be the one. The Bridesmaids’ dresses were from Janes in Torquay.

Vicki from Vanity Fayre has been Caroline’s hairdresser since she was six. Even before their engagement, she started asking Caroline about what hair she would like on her wedding day!

Flower La Vita provided Caroline’s stunning bouquet, as well as the centrepieces and buttonholes. The inspiration came from Dale’s autumn proposal to Caroline in Cockington, which must have looked beautiful! Caroline’s favourite colour is orange as well, so the result was a gorgeously warm autumnal arrangement. Caroline told me that Vita of Flower la Vita was exceptionally accommodating in creating her perfect bouquet.

Devon Wedding Photography – Spring Wedding at Buckland-Tout-Saints – Jazmine and Harley

Jazmine and Harley have been together for 12 years and their beautiful spring wedding at Buckland-Tout-Saints demonstrated their long-felt love for one another. Their relaxed, natural and family-orientated wedding was simply so easy to enjoy and admire. The grounds at the Buckland-Tout-Saints Hotel were magnificent and the beautiful interior was simply styled with Angela’s Wedding Flowers. Guests choosing beef from the menu were treated to meat from Jazmine’s father’s dexter cows. There was a one-man-band for entertainment, a sweet stall for the children and, later on, my very first sparkler exit!

This was Jazmine and Harley’s celebration of the best things in their life; their love for their friends and family, their son George and each other.

Jazmine’s gorgeous wedding dress was from the Debenhams Nine Bridal range. It was absolutely perfect and was finished with a belt from BHLDN, where she also purchased her shoes.

Devon Wedding Photography – Bickley Mill Inn, Shabby Chic Wedding – Amber and Arron

I knew that I would love photographing Amber and Arron from the first moment I met them. They were such a lovely happy couple and their wedding certainly reflected their personalities. It was also a testament to their planning, as they did it all from Bristol by email or by seeing numerous suppliers in a single trip south. They had a bit of trouble deciding on a venue, until they visited the Bickley Mill Inn in Devon, which they fell in love with.

I also love The Bickley Mill; it’s not only a beautiful venue but its neutral colour scheme also makes it very versatile, allowing couples to make the space their own. Amber and Arron wanted a shabby-chic wedding but, the quality of the venue and the floral arrangements were so good that, to quote Amber, it ended up “more chic than shabby”!

Amber’s hair was by Andrew Hill Salon in Newton Abbot.

Amber’s Wedding Dress was from A Class Brides in Bristol. They added straps to an initially strap-less dress to ensure that Amber had the perfect one! The lovely pastel-coloured bridesmaid dresses were from Do You Believe Bridal in Newport and her shoes were from Paradox London.

Amber’s make-up was by Harriet Lucille Beauty.

This is the moment when I informed the bridesmaids that, whilst they were clearly panicking that they could not zip Amber’s dress all the way to the top, it actually already was…

The wedding cars were provided by Roaring 30s. Ever since she was a little girl, Amber had always wanted a vintage wedding car. So when she booked Bickley Mill for their wedding, she decided to stay elsewhere the night before, purely so she could have her dream wedding car!

The ties and pocket squares were provided by Swagger and Swoon. They sent Amber and Arron numerous colour samples to ensure a perfect match with the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Amber told me that she was struggling to decide on a bouquet so she left Hollyhocks with just some pictures and ideas… The result is spectacular! Amber loved her bouquet so much it is currently in the process of being preserved by ‘the flower preservation studio’.

Credit must go to Hollyhocks once again; their flowers and arrangements were absolutely beautiful.

Cockington Court Devon Wedding Photography – Rachael & Tobi’s Intimate Elopement

Cockington is my favourite place in Torquay, if not in Devon! – it’s perfect for walks, tea, foraging for wine-making and of course, weddings! Therefore I was delighted to shoot Rachael and Tobi’s intimate ceremony there recently. This lovely couple were big on travel, so I was honoured that I could help make this trip extra special for them! They were joined by their best friends and I love being able to capture small, intimate occasions such as this one.  The weather was meant to be awful, but wasn’t – hence the best man carrying the bride’s umbrella!

Rachael’s stunning wedding dress was purchased from a charity shop (originally by Chi Chi London) and is an absolute triumph! Her simply beautiful wedding bouquet is from The Artisan Dried Flower Company, which I recognised straight away, having admired them myself on Etsy. I am a huge fan of dried flower bouquets; they can not only be kept forever but look amazing.

Dartmouth Wedding Photography at Worden House || Chelsie & Jose’s Intimate 1920s Wedding

Chelsie and Jose non-traditional, 1920s styled wedding was a blast to photograph! The whole wedding took place in one stunning venue, Worden House in Devon, where they stayed for the whole weekend. This meant that both Jose and Chelsie could spend time with their siblings, parents and nieces in a close, intimate environment; something that held additional significance for Jose, whose family had travelled from Spain.

This was a wedding filled with so much laughter and happiness. Jose and Chelsie believed that the 1920s dress code would help people relax and let their hair down, which it certainly did. I also think that the joy of the day had a lot to do with this amazing couple and the personality that they and their families imparted into the day. Thank you both for continuing to make mine the best job in the world!

Chelsie’s hair was styled by Charlotte from Floc in Kingsbridge and her makeup was by Melissa Rowden. Both suited the 20’s theme perfectly and Chelsie was very pleased with the natural look.

Chelsie’s adorable nieces looked the part in their beautiful flower-girl dress from Monsoon.

The bridesmaid dressed were from Boohoo and fitted the 20s theme to a T! The wedding was made possible with support and help from their families, and a special mention should go to a very organised maid of honour; Chelsie’s sister. Sigourney took on the role of wedding planner, travel agent for the stag- and hen dos, and chef!

Jose did not understand the word “wedded” during the vows. I am sure he does by now! Chelsie also made a mistake during her vows, but as she was not speaking in her second language, has much less of an excuse! The ceremony was so full of joy and was a real pleasure to photograph.

The theme for a 1920’s wedding came about when Chelsie was dress shopping at Luna Daisy in Totnes. Janet asked to see her engagement ring, a beautiful 1920’s art-deco band (wonderfully chosen by Jose) and knew she had the perfect dress to go with it. With her beautiful dress chosen, everything else followed!

With the help of family, Chelsie did all the places names and decorations, both for this room, and the onsite barn where the evening reception took place. I love the black and gold art deco styling!

Worden House was a fantastic venue. I love weddings that are contained in one amazing house, where all the guests can completely relax and be themselves. This leads on to plenty of great, natural moments which I love capturing.
