WOW, what a day. My first proper wedding of 2017 took place at the beautiful venue of Ocean Kave – North Devon Wedding Venue, in Westward Ho!, it’s always a pleasure to shoot weddings here. A great venue with some stunning views.
I have known Stevie since she was born so being asked to be her and Hannah’s photographer is a huge huge honour.
The day started off with myself covering both bridal preps sessions, it certainly kept me on my toes, but I loved every minute of it. Whilst candidly photographing Stevie’s bridal prep I captured an image that to me sums up the love between father and daughter. Love it..
Soon the guests were arriving the time for the ceremony fast approaching, both girls arrived separately but within seconds of each other. After a beautiful ceremony and a little time to mingle with the guests we all jumped in a stunning VW camper for the short drive down to Westward Ho! for some candid shots of the happy couple. Our exit from the venue was a little comical. First I had to bump start the VW bus, then Hannah was just opening the bottle of champagne when, boom it exploded.. So funny.
With a high tide in Westward Ho! we made use of the slip way, then it was back to the kave for the wedding breakfast.
With two brides it was double the speeches and twice as much love and laughter.
The sun was starting to set so we made the most of the views and the grounds the venue has to offer to capture some stunning couples portrait shots, all done in a relax manner with the emphasis on that WOW factor, I certainly think I captured the WOW that night..
With a setting sun it was time to party and huge thank to Ollie (Devon Wedding singer) for entertaining us all, firstly with a beautiful acoustic set then joining his band for some more up tempo numbers. They certainly kept the dance floor filled.
Huge love and congratulations to Stevie and Hannah, the new Mrs and Mrs Budge. Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your very special day. Here’s raising a glass to you both.
