Lydia & Luke - Boringdon Park Golf Club
This awesome Boringdon Park Golf Club (Devon) wedding includes a Tattooed Bride, Bikes, Butterflies, Golf cart rides, The beautiful sunshine and Glitter, lots and lots of glitter!
It was such a privilege to be hired to photograph Lydia and Lukes wedding. Over the last few years these two people have become good friends of ours. Lydia is the lady we turn to if we are looking for face painting for our little ones parties, hair braids, henna or tasty cakes and cupcakes (what a creative lady)
There were countless beautiful moments during this day. I'll mention just a few of my favourites.
- I need to mention Tom (The Best man and Luke's brother) There are two moments from Tom that I'll always remember. One where he presented the rings at church. As he opened the ring box, much to Lydia, Luke and the Vicars surprise, revealed two haribo jelly rings. Another moment from Tom was the very sweet and sentimental ukulele song that he performed during his speech (including audience participation)
- The Golf Cart rides! I would like to apologise to the old golfer that I almost flattened. We took the golf carts up to a beautiful old arch way for some stunning portraits.
- Diy. Lots of hard work (and glitter) went into setting the theme for this wedding. From the crochet button holes for all the guests to the glittered table pieces and many other details in between. It all looked spectacular!
- Enzo. When he first saw the reception room at Boringdon, he said "Mum (lydia) This room is beautiful, It's almost as pretty as you"
That comment from Enzo in my eyes is the biggest compliment to Chris and all of the great team at Boringdon for working hard to make everything look almost as stunning as Enzo's Mum.
- The beautiful weather with bright sunshine all day and a big orange sunset.
Thats enough talking from me. I think I can best sum up the crazy, fun, sunshiney and loving moments of the day with my photography. Hope you enjoy xxx

If you love the idea of not going over the top with typical weddingy traditions, Spending the perfect day chilling with your closest people, wearing the comfiest clothes (for most of the day) popping to your own secluded beach and having your own personal chip shop for dinner then you’ll adore this Intimate, Polhawn Fort wedding!
The Cow Shed with its rustic charm, was the perfect location for Sophie and David's wedding day. The atmosphere of the day was perfect, like a mini festival but with all of your family and closest friends. Great surroundings, great music, bubbles, face paint, photo booth props, yummy food, pegs, yep... PEGS! (you will see what I mean when you see the photos) and last but not least, one of the best wedding ideas ever. The Great Wedding Bake Off!

Connie and Richard chose the picturesque and super cosy Whitsand Bay Fort for their elopement. Oh man, this day!!!! and this couple!!!... A first look, golf cart rides in the snow, views of the Cornish coast, adorable dogs in bowties, happy tears, a cosy humanist ceremony with an actual tieing of the knot, AC/DC playing and a sit down meal all at one table. I loved so many moments from this day and I smiled so much during the day that my face ached really bad on my way home.

Hannah and Fraser asked me if I would drive all the way from Plymouth to Nottingham to photograph their intimate Bridgford Hall wedding. They mentioned that after the wedding they fancied having a walk around the park and would then be heading to Escabeche (a proper tapas restaurant) So obviously I said yes! I'm soooooooo glad that I did! Not just because I love a road trip and yummy tapas. But Hannah and Fraser just so happen to be one of the most awesome and in love couples I have ever met.
A Laid back fun day out wedding in Plymouth. Sharon and Simons wedding day was intimate and fun!

Yep! an afternoon nap. What an awesome day!
Jess and Cass had a fun, festival style wedding on a Devon cliff top in woolacombe. Sunny weather, live music, sack races, bubble fights, a vw camper, hay bales, "you've got a friend in me" for the first dance, good food, crazy dancefloor shapes and a groom in shorts (all of this is the way forward)
What an absolutely lovely family focused wedding Zoe and Pauls wedding at The Lord Haldon Hotel in Devon was. Some of my very favourite moments can be found in this post, Including Big smiles, funny “applying makeup” faces, an emotional father's reaction, interesting ways of keeping "the areas" cool on a hot wedding day morning, children being children, big hugs, a moment alone with Zoe and Paul featuring armpit tickles and light rain, more big hugs, more big smiles and dancing. Oh and BIG HUGS. What a perfect day!
Childhood sweethearts, a ton of confetti (both outside the church and on the dance floor), An "actual" toast, a warm and loving family atmosphere, the obligatory wedding thing, where non-smokers, smoke cigars and a little trip to Thatchers Rock in a classic Mercedes. oh, and not to forget, great BBQ. What an amazing day!
If you love all things with a minimalist english country/rustic style. If you can't explain why, but you love an exposed beam as much as I do. If you are looking for a relaxed, fun and informal wedding day where you have everything you need all in one place. The The Bickley Mill Inn has a cosy indoor area, covered outdoor decking and seating area (so you don't need to worry about the weather) a lovely garden for photos (with hundreds of wild bunnies), a place to stay on the night of the wedding, lovely staff and the all important option of a great BBQ. Check out the Bickley Mill Inn, Devon.
