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.

This post will show you how quirky the wonderful Retorrick Mill is! This venue in Cornwall is just incredible and perfectly suited to Becca and Josh’s laid back nature. The venue is full of character and the staff are awesome! Plus the food they cook in-house is to die for!!! and the beach is just a little trip away.
Incase you are wandering, you can still have an incredible Cornish Wedding at the Polhawn Fort in the winter months! What a relaxed, laidback and fun day that this Tuesday wedding in February was! Filled with love, confetti, beach hangs, dogs (they are welcome at Polhawn Fort too) inappropriate innuendos, random dance moves at random times of the day including on the Polhawn Fort bridge and lots of heavy metal on the dance floor.
What an incredible December wedding at The Polhawn Fort! This cosy venue was perfect for a rainy December wedding. It’s so cosy and warm. The whole Fort becomes your home for a couple of days.
Justine and Pete had a stunning classic winter wedding day at the very Charming Highbullen Hotel in North Devon.
Some of my fave moments of the day include seeing Justine’s family and friends faces when seeing her in her dress and when receiving gifts, Emelia watching her Mum have her lips painted and hilarious bridesmaids who dived right into the chocolate fountain. Oh and soooooooo much confetti!
See these moments and many more!

Warning - this post will make you want to get married at The Cow shed in Cornwall (even if you are already married) and head to the beach for a paddle.
Lealah and Adam had a super fun wedding day with a ceremony at Ocean Studios, Plymouth with its industrial and rustic charm. Followed by tons of confetti and a boat trip along the sound (with a pasty). Docking at Mount Edgcumbe for their reception at The Orangery. With an epic lego table plan and cake topper, a yummy BBQ, emotional speeches, games of frisbee on the lawn, cutting the (cheese) cake and foot stomping to the live band.
Kelly and Andy had a wonderful wedding at The Belmont Hotel In Leicester. I’m always soooooooo flattered when couples ask me to travel for them, because they connect with me and my work. They could have picked someone local but chose me and I’m so glad they did. I would have travelled even further for this lovely pair!
Christina and Lee had an absolutely amazing and ridiculously fun and laid back, festival style wedding day at Gulliford Farm. I have been to tons of weddings and I can say that they don’t get more laid back than this. It was like going to a festival with all of your fave friends and fam. With yummy street food, an inclusive playlist (that guests could add to) and an awesome live rock band, a bouncy castle, bucking sheep, giant bubbles, booze, glitter station, magician, bonfire and no dress code.
