The Wedding.

I had a great time photographing Chris and Lucy’s beautiful Salcombe wedding. The day started with Lucy getting ready in Goveton, before moving on to the ceremony at St Peter’s Church in Buckland Tout Saints (amazing views from there!) Afterwards we all travelled to Salcombe, on the Devon coast for their intimate reception, in a gorgeous house they’d hired for a leisurely few days around the wedding. I finished the day with some portraits around the grounds and on South Sands beach. A good day to be a Salcombe wedding photographer!

 

Some kind words from Lucy and Chris.

“From the moment we found your website we knew that you had something special in your style of photography that would suit us, then on meeting you we felt comfortable and absolutely confident that you were the right man for the job! None of that could have prepared us for the day itself though. Thank you firstly, for not only capturing but entering into the spirit of the day – we really enjoyed your company and you became a part of it all so effortlessly. Thank you for knowing when actually we needed that time away from everyone to have a one on one photo shoot with you – we needed that moment of calm and it felt right to share it with you. Finally, thank you for the most beautiful set of memories we could have ever hoped for, they have exceeded our expectations entirely – you have been so caring with our moments of joy, laughter, tears and in our case plenty of hugs! We really can’t thank you enough”.
 Lucy & Chris.

 

“Hi Simon,

Thanks so much. We love, love, love the photos! I’ve had tears in my eyes looking at them.

Kim.”

 

Despite living in Australia, Kim and Graham decided to get marred in Salcombe as it’s where Kim grew up, and generations of her family still live there. After a touching ceremony they walked through Salcombe’s main street- I love it when weddings brush briefly against everyone else’s usual Saturday- before ending up at Cliff House, a great venue with stunning views of the estuary. What followed was a warm, fun day- lots of laughter, great speeches and enthusiastic dancing; a great combination in my opinion :-)

“Hi Simon!
Thank you so much, they are truly amazing! I love seeing everyone looking so happy. You’ve captured some fantastic moments and it’s so lovely to re-live them again! Beautiful!
Rachael”.

 

Rachael and Jack’s beautiful wedding started at home in Swansea, before moving on to the popular St Hilary’s Church. From there we stopped briefly at Weobley Castle, for some Bride and Groom portraits, and then headed to Oldwalls for the party. Rachael and Jack were so much fun to photograph!

 

 
Charlotte and Adam choose Pynes House, a gorgeous 1700’s country house just outside of Exeter, for their getting ready and wedding celebrations, and got married at St Leonard’s Church in Exeter in between. The house itself, and the lovely grounds were fantastic for photographs- lots of space, lots of light and a lovely balance between the more formal aspects like architecture and garden design, and the informal relaxed nature of the day. Lots of great locations for portraits, and a beautiful overall backdrop for documentary photography, plus the loveliest couple- a great day!
