Lucy and Lee’s Wedding at Heddon Hall, Parracombe

We met Lucy and Lee in Exeter and our conversation quickly turned to camper vans from wedding plans. They’re both very down to earth and chilled people, in to their surfing and of course camper vans so it seemed only right they would get married on the north coast of Devon near Ilfracombe. Their day was relaxed and fun-filled and their relationship came across as one not only of husband and wife but also best friends.

I photographed their wedding alone but Laura joined me at the end of the day for their speeches.

Ashlea and Craig get married at Combe House, Gittisham, Devon

Ashlea and Craig’s wedding was at Combe House, a beautiful and idyllic Devon hotel which is also renowned for the fantastic food. I was photographing for just a few hours so a shorter blog entry this time around. Craig and Ashlea opted for a small and intimate wedding along with their close family around them.

Emily and Simon’s vintage country wedding in Chawleigh

Emily and Simon are based in Dubai but as they were both born and brought up in Devon they wanted to return here to get married in Emily’s local church in Chawleigh. The day continued at Emily’s parents house in a marquee she had kitted out with things such as indoor trees, and no less than a boat filled with beer (which went down a treat of course). Emily is an interior designer and it really showed in the details she created for the day.

As Emily and Simon are not in the UK very often we took them to a local field for some couple photos of them with a typical English countryside backdrop, luckily without the typical English weather. Overall, the day was a true friends and family affair, rounded off with a huge bonfire, music and camping.

My goodness you guys set the standard, such a well balanced collection from the day. I always try and pick out my favourites, but the list is too long today. Perhaps in the countryside, maybe the speeches, but how about in the church? Awesome, I hope you both had fun reviewing and post processing.
