Tuesday 30th October 2007

Katie Winter came to the studio with her Mummy, Daddy and big sister Sophie for her very first portrait sitting this week and I took some delightful shots of the girls individually and altogether as a family.

Joanne & Russell marry at Northcote Manor

Saturday 27th October 2007

Joanne and Russell were joined by family and friends on Saturday as they married in a civil ceremony at the Northcote Manor Hotel. We were fairly lucky with the
weather once again making the most of the beautiful water gardens before the happy couple returned to their guests inside the Hotel to enjoy the rest of the afternoon and evening.

October sunshine

Saturday 6th October 2007

The sun shone for Laura and Steven as they married at the St. Peter's Church, Fremington at the weekend.
The day started early as I joined the bride at the hairdressers for some early morning shots followed by photographs of Laura with parents and bridesmaid at the Woolacombe Bay Hotel.
After the church service I took the bride and groom to the nearby Fremington Manor for some special photographs before heading back to Morthoe for more shots on the headland.
After the wedding reception and speeches which took place at the Woolacombe Bay Hotel, we made the most of the beautiful autumn evening sunshine by going down onto the beach for some romantic photographs next to the sea.

Portrait ideas for Christmas

I thought it might be a good idea to show you some ideas for Christmas presents from a couple of my portraits taken earlier this year. The black and white design is from the 'Amelie' sitting taken in August and the pink one is from 'Grace's first portrait' which was shot in June.

Both of these prints have been designed to the customer's own requirements but I would be happy to come up with some alternative ideas as something a little different for a really special Christmas gift.

With Christmas only just around the corner, call 01271 344480 now to book your portrait sitting and give your loved ones a really special gift this year.

Rachel & Russell marry at Saunton Sands

Saturday 29th September

The day started earlier than normal this week as the groom Russell, who is a keen surfer was joined by his close friends and brother as they rode the waves on Saunton beach, before his marriage to Rachel at the hotel. The weather was fine to begin with but during the ceremony itself the heavens opened and the group photographs had to be taken inside. However we managed to get down the beach to catch ten minutes for some shots before the next downpour with the wet sand and stormy clouds providing a dramatic backdrop.

A Humanist celebration for Lynsey & Ashley

Sunday 23rd September 2007

Lynsey and Ashley spent the weekend at the magnificent Sheafhayne Manor near Honiton with close family and friends culminating in a Humanist wedding ceremony on the Sunday. Everyone travelled down from the north for the celebration and despite the rather unpleasant weather conditions a great time was had by all. We managed to snatch five minutes outside to make the most of the beautiful grounds and use the manor house as a backdrop for some special photographs of the happy couple.

Here comes the bride all pretty in pink!

Saturday 15th September 2007

Hazel and Daniel from Torrington were joined by family and friends as they married in a civil ceremony at the Fox & Hounds Hotel, Eggesford.
Hazel looked stunning in pale rose-pink dress set off with a bouquet of pink and white roses. After the ceremony I photographed the family and friends groups in the Hotel gardens before taking the happy couple into the nearby woods for some romantic shots. Hazel and Daniel spent their honeymoon cruising in the Med-very nice too!
