This year I have been fortunate enough to photograph lots of weddings at venues I haven’t worked at before, and I was very excited to be shooting Hannah and James’s reception at Greenway in Devon. I am also a huge Agatha Christie fan, so Greenway was definitely on my “bucket list”! I had already met Hannah and James previously and knew that theirs would be an amazing wedding to photograph.
They thought it was important to be married at church, so the ceremony took place at the beautiful Our Lady Help of Christians and St. Denis Catholic Church in Torquay. Yet Hannah and James wanted to mix the traditional with something different. Their mutual love of the 1920s, combined with the Agatha Christie setting, produced an amazing art-deco effect for their reception. They gave it all a colourful, modern twist with the flowers and bridesmaid dresses, and everything worked so well together. Enjoy!
Hannah’s dress, shoes, bridal headpiece and the bridesmaids’ dresses were all from Pirouette in Exeter.
Hannah’s makeup was by Browella in Torquay.
The sleeves on Hannah’s bridal dress were designed bespoke by Sarah Goodies at Pirouette with a 1920s twist, and each sleeve was hand-beaded for the perfect art-deco look.
Hannah and James’s reception was in the grounds of Greenway in Devon. The light and spacious marquee was provided by Marldon Marquees.
I absolutely loved James’s fantastic wedding suit from Zebel Bespoke! The other mens’ suits were provided by the excellent Sawyers of Torquay.
Everything at Hannah and James’s wedding worked so well together and the flowers and the bouquets, provided by Fiesta Red, were absolutely stunning!
The cake was provided by Torquay bakery A Piece of Cake.
I hope my photos show off the fact that Hannah’s brother could just dance!
Thank you Hannah and James for letting me photograph your amazing day and the beginning of your married life together!
