Cockington is my favourite place in Torquay; 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.
Rachael’s gorgeous shoes were by Papaya at Asos.
Thank you to Rachael and Tobi for inviting me to join your wonderful wedding. I love photographing weddings at Cockington Court so much that I offer a special Cockington Court package!

Tom & Naomi married surrounded by their closest family in a relaxed ceremony at Cockington Court, Torquay. They are both maths geeks & teachers and met doing their PGCE. They fell in love within a month of meeting & it’s clear to see almost 6 years later how completely in love & perfect for each other they are. I had so much fun meeting them & documenting their ceremony!
I absolutely love documenting intimate weddings at Cockington Court and have a special package for them! If you’re getting married there & looking for a wedding photographer in Torbay, get in touch, I would love to hear from you!
Cailin & Ben booked me around a month before their big day due to a mistake by their original photographer and I feel so lucky that I was available to be their photographer, I absolutely loved capturing their relaxed, fun wedding at the Toorak Hotel, Torquay.
Inspired by pinterest, this wedding was 4 years in the making, with Cailin creating flower girl dresses, the bouquets, all the decorations and invites, making everything very personal and romantic. Ben provided lots of patience and cups of tea! Cailin loved making everything for the wedding so much that it inspired them to do it as a business!
Their wedding was all about making memories and making it last. Doing everything DIY meant that they could have their big dream wedding within their budget.
Cailin’s beautiful hair & makeup were done by WO Salon and she looked stunning in her dress from Brides at Waterfields! The bridesmaids wore Chi Chi London dresses and Cailin made the flower girl dresses, her bridal belt and the bridesmaid bracelets.The flower arch on the gazebo, the chair flowers, rhinestone clips on the sashes and the hanging glass baubles and roses were all beautifully made by Cailin.Caitlin made the beautiful bouquets because she wanted to keep them after the wedding, it’s now hung on the wall with the photo charms of her Nana, best friend Jules and uncle Aidan.There were lots of kids at Cailin & Ben’s wedding, so they made sure there was plenty on fun things for them to do with a bouncy castle, ball pit and play area from Teign Bounce and Play.Jimmy Ireland played throughout the day, for Cailin walking down the aisle, during the drinks reception and the first dance.The mirror table plan, centre pieces, top table swag, sloe gin favours and place names were made by Cailin. The sloe gin was especially important to Cailin and her Irish family, it was the last drink they all had with her uncle who passed away too early.Cailins mum Janet and her sister Siobhan made all these beautiful cakes!
We got the most perfect evening for our pre wedding photoshoot at Broadsands Beach & Elberry Cove. Amber & Arron are the most adorable, loving couple to photograph, I didn’t need to direct them at all. Their love just radiates from these photos!

It’s always a privilege to be a part of a couple’s weddings, and Nicola & Chris’s wedding has been one of my absolute favourites. Beginning with lots of emotion when Nicola’s dad saw her in her dress and Chris crying happy tears during the ceremony, photographing their pregnancy announcement (how wonderful is my job?!) and finishing the day with a buzzing dance floor with live music from the amazing Bill Ding and the Skyscrapers.
Kick back and enjoy this cosy, romantic, classic, rustic wedding at the Berry Head Hotel, Brixham!
The ladies had their hair done by The Village Salon, and makeup by Harriet Lucille. The bridesmaids charcoal grey dresses from Brides at Waterfields were chosen to compliment the belt on Nicola’s gorgeous wedding dress from Dizzie Lizzie. Nicola’s hair clip and the customised coat hangers were created by her sister Kerry!The Venue Dressing Company provided the chair covers and lovely grey sashes.They wanted to save money where I could so Nicola & Chris made the seating plan from a palette they painted grey, attaching photo frames for the plan and buckets with fresh flowers for some colour. Nicola’s dad created the log slices & wooden name holders from a tree in their garden, a lovely personal rustic touch.Their table numbers had pictures of Nicola & Chris at that age, such a cute & personal idea! They chose lemon & ivory colours for the flowers from the amazing Hollyhocks Florist which went beautifully with the grey bridesmaids dresses and chair sashes and warmed up the room.Nicola made the sweet bag favours herself and Torbay Displays provided the lovely interior decorations, which gave the room a cosy glow!Caked in Elegance created this stunning cake, which matched Nicola’s wedding dress!Bespoke Disco provided the awesome sparkly dance floor and Bill Ding and the Skyscrapers amazing music had the dance floor packed!Thank you for looking!

Terri & Leigh absolutely rocked their pre wedding photoshoot at Broadsands Beach & Elberry Cove, Paignton. I suspect them of secretly being models! But seriously, they were amazing to work with & such a lovely couple. I’m so excited for their wedding this coming September where I’ll be working alongside some of my favourite suppliers *Hollyhocks Florist Yaaaaay!*
A pre wedding shoot is included in my main wedding package as I love to get to know my couples before their big day. Couple photoshoots are also available separately! Get in touch if you’d like more info, I’d love to hear from you.

Perfect inspiration for free spirited colourful themes such as Boho Bollywood, Boho Punk, Fairy Wonderland & Bright Bohemian.
Daisy, Molly & Me created a stunning cake featuring sugar peonies, cosmos, dogwood, daisies and berries. The hand painted glass is from My Take on Pretty, handmade lampshades and cushions by Fine and Dandy, handmade guest book by Oh So Vintage Weddings, and hair & makeup by Billie Edge. With thanks to models Maisie Tysall in the vintage lace wedding dress, and Nikole Smith in the handmade flower dress by Billie Edge.

I met Rachel & Lisa about 3 weeks before their wedding! Having been let down by their original photographer, I was absolutely thrilled to step in and photograph this amazing couple and their 2 part wedding!
Rachel & Lisa officially got married on Friday at Cockington Court, Torquay, with their closest family with them. It was a super happy day, full of smiles and laugher, especially when Lisa called Rachel her awful wedded wife in the ceremony.
It poured with rain, but that didn’t dampen spirits and luckily it dried up in time for their beach celebrations the day after, which I’ll be sharing very soon!
The next Devon Wedding Show in Torbay is this Sunday (11/9/16) so I thought I would share a few photographs from the last show. It’s a pleasure to not only exhibit here amongst 40+ of the best local suppliers, but to also be the event photographer. The fashion show that Serenity put on, showcasing their beautiful wedding dresses, is always excellent to watch and photograph, with the wonderful models provided by Sigma Studios.
If you’re planning your wedding, the Devon Wedding Show is the place to be!
From photographers, to florists, cake designers to venues & DJ’s, you’ll find all the amazing suppliers you need for your wedding. You can also meet an amazing Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator!
I’ll be exhibiting this weekend and I’d absolutely love to meet you and chat about your big day!
Hope to see you there
Emma & Marc recently moved down here to Dartmouth, and friends of mine recommended me to them for an engagement photoshoot! It turns out they also know the couple who were my first ever wedding clients!
We met up for our engagement photo session at Broadsands Beach Paigton, which is fast becoming my favourite place to photograph at. It was a blast to photograph these two!
