2018: a round-up of this year’s incredible weddings

2018! What. A. Year! Just so many completely incredible celebrations that I have been invited to share and photograph. There is nothing quite like photographing weddings. The combination of the emotions, the people and the connections, the locations, the celebrations – it’s the most wonderful thing to do, and I love it so damn much….

Christine and Richard celebrated their wedding at lovely River Cottage last weekend, and I absolutely loved photographing it all for them.

It could not…

Brympton House wedding: Thomas and Leonora’s elegant black tie celebration

I loved so much – okay, everything – about Thomas and Leonora’s stunningly elegant October wedding in Somerset. Brympton House is a venue that I absolutely adore shooting at, as there are so many different and completely magnificent parts to it. But it was Leonora and Tom, and their brilliant friends and family, who really…

Thomas and Tilly got married on Saturday, with the most fantastic wedding celebrations at River Cottage.

Then it was…

Huge congratulations to Dani and Blue, who celebrated their wedding in mid-Devon this week.

I loved Natalie and Aidan’s laid back River Cottage wedding day! They had just a handful of guests, mainly immediate family and a few close friends, and they celebrated in the loveliest style.

It is such a pleasure to blog Anna and Iggy’s gorgeous Dartmoor wedding celebration.

Meanwhile,…

Colourful Devon marquee wedding: Helen & Sheppy get married in Noss Mayo

South Devon has so many really gorgeous spots, but Noss Mayo has to be up there with the best of them. One of the most beautiful villages, with Newton Ferrers on the other side of the water, and the prettiest location on an estuary of the River Yeam. Helen and Sheppy’s wedding took place in…

Polhawn Fort wedding: Maria & Tim’s colourful celebration by the sea

Polhawn Fort wedding: Maria & Tim’s colourful celebration by the sea

Polhawn Fort in Cornwall is a venue where I always really enjoy photographing – I absolutely love the contrast between the bright blue sea and skies outside, and the beautiful dark interior of the old fort. It’s always a really interesting place to photograph a wedding, so I was delighted when Maria first got in touch. We chatted on…

Cadhay Manor wedding: Laura & Andrew’s beautiful Devon celebration

Cadhay Manor wedding: Laura & Andrew’s beautiful Devon celebration

Laura and Andrew had the most beautiful wedding celebration at Cadhay Manor in Devon. I’m not sure I have ever seen quite so many smiles in one day, nor a couple so clearly besotted with each other – it was absolutely wonderful to capture. Cadhay is one of my favourite wedding venues to shoot at….
