The Best of 2016 | Alternative Wedding Photographer Devon

Tags:

It looks like 2017 is finally upon us! And what an eventful year we have left behind, with all it’s political twists & turns and the sad deaths of two of my favourite musicians – Leonard Cohen and David Bowie. Amidst all the chaos of 2016 I was lucky enough to have so many beautiful weddings to photograph and have been surrounded by love and positivity all year. My work has taken me all over the country and I’ve shot at some really stunning venues here in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and beyond… It really has been an adventure! I camped in a gypsy caravan in Wales, caught a canal boat in London to the quirky Canal Museum, enjoyed Jewish dancing rituals, ceilidhs, African drummers and hung out in barns, stonecircles, woodlands and tipis! All in all I’ve had a ball 🙂 You guys have been the best bunch to hang out with… I’m really lucky to have such likeminded couples who feel more like old friends than wedding clients.

This coming year is looking to be just as exciting, with lots of wedding photography bookings in Devon so I will get to check out more of the brilliant venues here. I can’t wait to meet more wonderful, happy couples in 2017 and share the fun, laughter and magic with you!

Happy New Year to all my couples past, present & future – I wish you a 2017 full of love, laughter and happiness 🙂

Wild swimming was the first call of the day as Dan and the boys headed out to a nearby river for a quick dip. Meanwhile, Amy enjoyed the rustic charm of a nearby country cottage. Her mum was busy crafting the bridal bouquet, whilst the girls enjoyed champagne in the sunshine before heading to the venue… the wedding bus didn’t pick them up but they made it in the end!! After the ceremony Amy surprised her new husband with an African drumming band who kept everyone entertained! After such an incredible performance there was barely any time for outdoor games before everyone settled down for food. The decor inside Amy & Dan’s marquee really worked well with the venue. They took their inspiration from nature – with tables named after animals and green hanging bouquets. Continuing the celtic feel after dinner was a Cornish Ceilidh band who got everyone on the dance floor! I tried to not get too squashed in the middle of the scrum… outside a full moon was shining brightly as people gathered around a fire to toast marshmallows and the happy couple ???? Congratulations again guys… such a gorgeous, fun packed country wedding! This wedding was shot with second shooter Chris Quick.
