Another big weekend now behind me and the nod from my clients to preview some images obtained, so now’s the time to get my writing cap on.
Normally, as you maybe aware, I am not one for reams of text about my clients weddings, this is for two reasons.
1. I like to think my images tell the story enough without words.
2. I respect my clients privacy and don’t want to plaster the full details all over the net.
But with my double wedding weekend behind me and time to reflect on both amazing weddings, I feel I may just ramble on in my next too blog posts. Sorry.
Saturday saw me head out to the beautiful picturesque location of Lynton and Lynmouth for the much anticipated wedding of Caroline and Allan. The anticipation began for me when the couple first contacted me with some rough plans of their day, when we meet up for the engagement shoot I knew the day would be something very different and very special.
Opting for something a little less traditional, Allan and Caroline’s wedding perfectly suited my relaxed, creative and modern approach to and style of wedding photography. The day started with bridal and groom prep at a beautiful house over looking Foreland point and Wales in Lynton, which would later be the scene for the evening entertainment. A short stroll a through the town saw us in the local town hall for the ceremony. Slightly different to my normal venues because all the guests were able to stand on the stairs behind the couple, and I kinda liked that.
With the ceremony over and the confetti thrown it was another stroll to the after tea venue of Hewitts along north walk in Lynton. Caroline and Allan lead the way with all the guest behind. A beautiful sight..
I have been in Hewitts several times in my previous job but never had the time to appreciate it’s beauty before so Saturday was a treat. Villa Spaldi has one of the most amazing views over the Bristol Channel, I have ever seen. The wedding party enjoyed drinks and nibbles on the terrace whilst the bride and groom and myself took a stroll around the fern garden of the venue for a few couples portraits. Unfortunately the heavens opened shortly after we got back from our photo session in the garden, which did put pay to any more outside photo’s but it did allow us to soak up the atmosphere of the interior of Hewitts. Where the guests were treated to some of the most amazing cupcakes, sweets and nibbles I have had the pleasure of sampling in ages. I honestly thought the cupcakes were not real when I first saw them.
The evening part of the day was back at the house we started in.Where can I start describing it.. I honestly don’t think I can without boring you all for ages on how cool it was. So in summary the evening saw the wedding party, eat bbq food, drink cocktails from a bucket made by their very own cocktail waiter, play silly in the photobooth, sing karaoke, dance the conga and generally have a rocking good house party. What a way to end a beautiful day.
If I were doing it all again for my wedding day, it would something similar to this..
Guys it was an amazing day despite the weather, thank you for letting me be part of it and capture the memories for you. I wish you both all the very best for the future wherever it takes you both.
