Newton Abbot Wedding

Elizabeth and Nick's Newton Abbot Wedding.

This Newton Abbot Wedding is the second part out of three for Elizabeth and Nick’s wedding adventure, which has been a truly international event. Nick is originally from Newton Abbot and Elizabeth lives in Los Angeles where they met. This was far from a traditional marriage. For the first part of the wedding they eloped to the beautiful Yosemite National Park where they married in a small open air service surrounded by the amazing back drop of the mountains. Because both families and friends are spread across the UK and the USA, they decided to fly back to the UK to have a wedding service in Nick’s home town. The theme would be a traditional English garden party held at Nick’s parents. So, we arranged all the photography via email and phone calls and it wasn’t until the day before the ceremony that I met them in person. That evening I had a text to say that the garden party had been cancelled as the gazebos had been bent beyond use in the high winds. Fortunately the local Combeinteignhead pub, the Wild Goose stepped in and saved the day, holding the evening celebrations in their restaurant. The ceremony was beautiful, with an opera singer whose voice was simply stunning.  After the ceremony we took a quick drive out to Labrador Point for couple’s portraits by the sea. Elizabeth wanted to be able to show everybody back home the beauty of the South Devon landscape. We had planned to head out again if there was a sunset but it was not to be the case. However,  I had an idea I’d wanted to try out for some time - to get the first dance shots in a band stand. So without telling them where I was taking them, we jumped in the car for a trip into Newton Abbot, Courtney Park and the old band stand. Elizabeth and Nick were a great couple to work with and I really enjoyed being their wedding photographer. So please make sure you look to the bottom of the post to see my pick of the pictures. I know that they are having a big party back in Los Angeles for all the US friends and family. I hope you had a fantastic time.

A beautiful north devon wedding

A beautiful north devon wedding.

I wanted to share with you Ruth and David’s beautiful north devon wedding filled with loads of homemade details. This was my first wedding of the jubilee weekend. Which found me over in Braunton, north Devon. The ceremony was held at the stunning St Augstine church in Heanton Punchardon. Then we went on to the village hall in the middle of Croyde after we stopped for the couples portraits on the beach at saunton sands. But first I must say a big thank you to Ruth’s Mum. Who kept me going with toasted bagels and cups of coffee the wedding photographers breakfast of choice. 🙂 I also think I met my match on the organisational front Ruth’s sister with our printed schedules, which became a running joke throughout the day, checking up on me and if I was on schedule. So thank you ladies for making it a fun day. We also managed to avoid the showers long enough to get some great images down on the beach. Where the best man David’s brother did a brilliant job of stopping my equipment blowing off into the sea. Then off to the village hall for an English tea party, which was later followed by a hog roast. I really loved the handmade guest name tags (see the bottom of the post), which had seeds in the paper so they could be planted as a lasting reminder of their wedding day. My memory of the day will be of the laughter and fun. So if you are planning a wedding in North Devon please get in contact as soon as possible because dates are filling up fast. Also please feel free to share my blog post with friends and family. Don't forget to like and check out the facebook business page. Wedding Photography
