plymouth wedding photography in Smeatons tower

plymouth wedding photography in Smeatons tower. Jo and Mark’s wedding took place in the light house “Smeatons Tower” on the hoe in Plymouth. I didn’t meet Jo until the day before her wedding as it was the first time they would be back down in Plymouth before the wedding. We met at Smeatons tower on a very windy and wet summers day, where Jo was absolutely fearless walking out in the high winds at the top of the light house. I personally wasn’t too keen on going out to have a look. But I did (I’m not great with heights so no hot air balloon rides please) and we planned that if the weather cleared up we would go out on the top to take some couples shots with views over Plymouth, the Hoe and the sound. I can see why it’s a popular venue. On a clear day the views are stunning and something a little different from a traditional wedding venue. The only people who are allowed at the wedding ceremony are the bride and groom (I know obvious), the two registrars, the two witnesses’ and the photographer. We also managed to keep Jo and Marks little boy in his very smart suit in the top section. The rest of the wedding party have to go on the different levels of the light house. The morning of the wedding the weather was pouring with rain and when I arrived at Smeatons tower I didn’t think we would be able to get any pictures outside. But fortunately as soon as the groom Mark arrived the weather cleared. Jo and Mark were a great couple to work with. Thank you for letting me be part of your day. I do love an unusual wedding venue. Please have a look through a small selection of the images below and feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.

the grand hotel torquay wedding

The Grand Hotel Torquay wedding of Ellen and Matt. July saw me at the Grand Hotel in Torquay with Ellen and Matt, who you may remember from their engagement shoot earlier in the year. For the engagement shoot in February we had glorious weather, but for the Grand Hotel Torquay wedding it was a little less kind. At one point, while having lunch, the RNLI helicopter was in the bay as the sea fog came in. But, it didn’t matter a bit as eventually the weather cleared and we had chance to get out on the beach after the meal. The Grand Hotel is a brilliant venue and the organisation was fantastic from start to finish. I would recommend them to anyone. When we arrived first thing in the morning the hotel room was full to bursting with hair and makeup people. Not to mention Ellen’s friends who popped in to say hello and wish her well. Personally, I think they were coming for a sneaky peek of the wedding dress – you know who you are!! The morning absolutely flew by and before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony and the room was filled with emotion. The evening was a great party. We also supplied a photo booth for the evenings entertainments, along with a chocolate fountain from serenity of Newton Abbot. Have a look at the photo booth images from the evening to see for yourself, the guests really enjoyed and made the most of the photobooth as the images show I’ve also included some shots of their album as I don’t normally get chance to take any pictures before the brides and grooms come to collect them. I use Jorgensen of Australia for my matted albums. They are just stunning and the options are endless. Ellen and Matt were a great couple to work with and I really enjoyed their wedding, wishing you all the luck in the world. Flowers supplied by wild floral designs Torquay.
