A Flypast for Lyn & David!

Saturday 28th November 2009

Rain didn't spoil the day for Lyn and David as they married at Heanton Church last Saturday. The groom who is in the RAF had organised a fly past by the rescue helicopter just as everyone was outside for the group shots. Unfortunately it started to rain quite heavily after that so I took the couple back inside the church for some photographs before leaving for the reception at the Barnstaple Hotel. Due to work commitments Lyn and David are delaying their honeymoon to Kenya until the new year.

Kim & Paul marry at Woolacombe

Saturday 7th November 2009

The Woolacombe Bay Hotel was the setting for the wedding of Kim and Paul last weekend. The couple who are both currently serving in the Navy were joined by family, friends and seven attendants for a civil ceremony before braving the elements for some photographs on the headland and beach. Despite the cold and windy weather conditions I photographed Kim running barefoot up and down the sand dunes and having a 'piggy back' along the beach before returning to the warmth and comfort of the hotel for the wedding reception.

Trash the Dress

Here are are few images from a 'Trash the Dress' I photographed in September. Clare and Kristian married at the Saunton Sands Hotel on 20th September and on the Sunday morning Clare got up early and met me on the beach for some shots in the sea. As she walked towards the water the bride was joined by her youngest bridesmaid and the couple's black labrador who also wanted to be in the photographs. After a couple of shots on a friend's surfboard I photographed Clare as she lay in the water completely.

Rebecca goes for a paddle on her wedding day!

Saturday 10th  October 2009

Woolacombe was again the setting for my wedding last weekend as Rebecca and Stuart married at the Woolacombe Bay Hotel. The sun shone once more as the happy couple were joined by their closest family and friends who had travelled down from the West Midlands for the intimate celebration. After a civil ceremony, champagne and wedding cake were served on the Hotel lawns before I took the bride and groom down to the beach for some photographs at the water's edge. Rebecca decided that she wanted to get in the water so she put on her her pink boots and went for a paddle! Woolacombe has been the holiday destination for Rebecca and her family over the years and she came with Stuart for the very first time in 1996. No doubt they will be returning for many more years to come as this has now become a very special place for both of them.

Sarah & Richard marry at The Watersmeet Hotel

Thursday 1st October 2009

Sunshine was the order of the day as Sarah and Richard married at the Watersmeet Hotel, Woolacombe. The bride and her family who come from Wiltshire, have been spending their holidays in Woolacombe for many years so it seemed only natural for them to return for the wedding! After the civil ceremony and group photos I took the couple down to the beach and made the most of the glorious weather and stunning coastline for some some romantic shots of just the two of them. Sarah and Richard spent their honeymoon in Yorkshire and came back to Devon shortly after to choose the pictures for their storybook album.

A beautiful sunset for Clare & Kristian

Saturday 19th September 2009

Family and friends travelled down from the West Midlands to join Clare and Kristian as they married at the Saunton Sands Hotel on Saturday. The sun shone all day long for the happy couple and their guests as they made the most of the stunning location and glorious views. There was one extra special guest at the wedding and that was the couple's black labrador who spent as much time as she could running through the water at the nearby Saunton beach! As the sunny day drew to a close we were fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of a spectacular sunset and go down to the water's edge for some romantic shots next to the sea. The evening party was held at the nearby Sands Cafe Bar and celebrations went on well into the next morning. The bride was up bright and early the following morning for some more photos, something a little different this time. Keep a look out for a 'Trash the Dress' blog entry coming very soon.

A glorious day for Suzanna & James' wedding

Saturday 5th September 2009

A beautiful autumn day greeted family and friends as they gathered for Suzanna and James' wedding.
After the service and group photographs at Northam church I took the bride and groom to Westward Ho! for some dramatic shots on the pebble ridge. The reception was held in a marquee near Abbotsham and I managed to get a shot of the Suzanna and James with all their guests outside of it before the celebrations got into full swing. The happy couple are spending their honeymoon in South Africa.

Sunshine at Burrington for Stehen & Lucy's wedding

Saturday 29th August 2009

The sun came out for Lucy and Stephen on Saturday as they married at Burrington Methodist Church. The bride accompanied by her father and attendants walked through the village to the church where the groom and guests eagerly awaited their arrival. The groom had been driven to the church on a tractor and after the service the happy couple left by the same means. As the guests made their way to the Thelbridge Cross Inn we stopped at a barley field on Burrington Beacon and then at a nearby stream for some romantic shots before rejoining everyone for the wedding reception. The honeymoon is being spent in Tunisia.

The bride left home and made her way to the nearby St.John the Baptist church in a carriage drawn by two magnificent black horses. After the service everyone made their way back to home for the wedding reception which was to be held in a marquee in the grounds. Guests gathered in  the lovely gardens at the front of the manor house for drinks before the reception got underway in the early evening.

Bride walks to her own wedding!

Saturday 15th August 2009

St. Giles in the Wood was the setting for the marriage of Sarah and Nick at the weekend and the bride didn't have far to go as the church was right next door to her parent's home! After the service I photographed the bride and groom with their guests in the church grounds before taking the couple to a nearby field for some intimate, fun shots. Sarah and Nick joined their guests at the Cedars Hotel for the wedding reception and travelled there magnificent black Rolls Royce. The couple are spending their honeymoon in Corfu.
