What a Rocking wedding at the (absolutely charming) Escot House! I loved everything about this day! To name just a few of these things...
The Ceremony in a old library (proper beauty and the beast vibes) The subtle Day of the Dead theme, Chimichangas, chocolate skulls, cats, cats everywhere (They come complimentary with the venue), live music, temporary tattoo's, super old books, kick ass shoes, A bride in a leather jacket and a goom with a rather exquisite beard.
Most of all though. I love that leather jacketed bride and that bearded groom.
Kaz and Danny! This couple are truly wonderful. We first met at Dawlish Warren for a Maternity session In September 2015. I was so excited for them as they had recently gotten engaged and were pregnant with their little lady. They were building a house together. I feel so honoured to know Kaz and Danny. To have been able to stay in touch after we first met (thank you social media) To witness their journey, see photos of Robyn when she came into the world and see their home coming together. Then the topping on the cake (awful wedding pun intended) to be hired to photograph their wedding! (yes, of course, I did one of my embarrassing dad happy dances. A really big one)
The love that they clearly have for each other, their little babe Robyn and their family and friends is completely undeniable and they are not afraid to show it. My face really ached from smiling all day. Witnessing so much love. Love for people and love for living life!
The day time was about family, with a super intimate ceremony and sit down (mexican) meal. Catching up and laughing hard around one long table. The night was a huge party with drinks flowing, moves throwing, live metal and tons of friends. What a perfect combination.
Thank you Kaz and Danny, for having me, for the chimichanga, the good music, laughs and for treating me as one of the family for a day. Your family welcomed me too, which means the world. Thank you so much.

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.

Going to the beach in the rain, kiddies in fancy dress, PIZZZZZZAAAA!, a dancing unicorn and lots of Pizza.
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! Including a Registry Office ceremony, a walk along Plymouth Hoe and Barbican, Lovely food, A ferry ride, a walk around the National Marine Aquarium in wedding clothes and an afternoon nap. 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.
