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.
