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 for a beautiful church service. Then we all moved to Bickley Mill 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!

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.

Dainton Park Golf Club, Newton Abbot Wedding Photography || Marie & Philip

From the moment I arrived to St Josephs Church in Newton Abbot, where Marie & Philip had their beautiful ceremony, I knew it was going to be a special day. The church was bright & beautiful, and everyone was so happy & friendly!

Marie arrived in style in the 1952 ALVIS TA21 from Torbay Wedding Car Club. She was the smiliest & most beautiful bride in her dress from Angel Face, Newton Abbot with the biggest bouquet I have ever seen. All of Marie’s beautiful flowers were made by a friend, Christine and combined Roses, Lisianthus, Gypsophila and touches of gold, perfectly complimenting the bridesmaids in their purple dresses from Debenhams.

Marie & Philip, from the day you booked me it has been so lovely to know and work with you, your happiness is contagious!

Pastel Wedding Photography in Cornwall, The Vean || Natasha & Jacob

I am so excited to share this beautiful pastel wedding that took place in Cornwall at the beautiful St Just in Roseland’s Church, and The Vean in Caerhays Estate. From the moment Natasha got in touch, I couldn’t wait to be their photographer, and I was excited to realise that I knew Jacobs family from school over 10 years ago!

Natasha & Jacob met at work as Veterinary Nurses and they absolutely love animals, bringing their two Dalmatian cross Collie dogs to the church and featuring them and their cat on their amazing wedding cake made by Jacobs mum!

This wedding is wonderfully inspirational with it’s rustic pastel theme and DIY touches. I hope you enjoy!

Christmas Imperial Hotel Torquay Wedding Photography || Jess and Max

I first met Jess at The Devon Wedding Show. She exuded enthusiasm and excitement when we spoke and looked through the albums on my table – Jess is the kind of person who lights up a room! A few months later, after I assumed they’d found another photographer, I was thrilled to get an email from her wanting to meet up.

They had reservations about wedding photography as they were both camera shy and didn’t think they photographed well – nonsense. I think my response was “you’re a ridiculously good looking couple”.

But that’s not important anyway! On your wedding day, you glow with a happiness which will always be beautiful behold and document. And as a documentary photographer, I assured them that they would barely notice me throughout the day.

A what a day it was! They had a wonderful ceremony in Cockington Church and reception at The Imperial Hotel, Torbay. All was cosy and christmassy and joyful!

ABode Exeter Cathedral Wedding Photography || Susannah and Andrei

It was wonderful to photograph Susannah and Andrei’s wedding at Abode Exeter (who have used these photos in their brochure!) and blessing at Exeter Cathedral, surrounded by their friends and family from across the world who came to share this beautiful day with them.

Susannah walked by Andrei’s desk in Bucharest 18 months before they were introduced by friends in Barcelona and he poured a bottle of beer on her, accidentally of course. They were meant to be!

There was a constant worry that rain would descend, but when we left St Petrox Church after the ceremony, the sun was glorious. This portrait of Ali is one of my all time favourite wedding photos.
