BUCKLAND TOUT SAINTS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

This was my very first wedding of the year, and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to kick off my season with, Melissa and Darren, who were super , the right sort of bride and groom that suited my style of wedding photography, who basically just let me get on with my job of taking pictures in my reportage style.

Do you want me to do anything”? Melissa asked me as she was getting ready in the morning, “Nope” I replied quickly, as when you start giving too much direction to couples you lose the moment, and it all gets a bit Freeman’s catalogue. I’m if anything more of a prompter, a suggester, if I see a sexy bit of light gleaming through a window then I may tell them to stand in it, rather than in a dark corner, that sort of thing.

The wedding was at Buckland Tout Saints in the South Hams area of Devon, a really lovely venue, intimate, with around 40 guests to the day, you get a real sense of emotion during the ceremony, there was a lot of poignant stuff going on, Darren and Melissa equally finding the whole moment moving, her dad looked very proud all day, it was a fab wedding to document and record.

I’m back down to Buckland Tout Saints again in a couple of weeks time, and can’t wait. I get booked at the same places frequently, but to me every wedding is totally different, yes the process is the same, but the people, emotions and moments are all truly one off’s and unique, which need capturing and this is why I love shooting weddings and the people involved. I love to just softly scratch away at the surface of every wedding and discover a little bit more than the norm, spontaneous reactions, real honest moments caught in the sincerest of ways, the belly laughs and the tears. I try and get it all.

It helps getting the right brides and grooms, who fit into my style and approach and Melissa and Darren were spot on.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN CORNWALL

I took a nice little trip down the A30 to Cornwall, with my second shooter Zac in tow, heading to a wedding venue called Fentafriddle, near Tintagel and Port Isaac.

The couple, Gemma and Ian, now live in Turks and Caicos, in the Caribbean, obviously known for its beautiful beaches and weather, but they swapped it for Cornwall, where it had mouth watering views, and a cool little road leading to the beach which was a stunner for pictures. “I’m just going to plonk them on the end of that rock over there” I told Zac as we over looked the ocean from our vantage point bench the day before, and so I did not 24 hours later, the sea was choppy and the air was crystal, not too dazzling and squinty, but just right.

The whole day was pretty emotional, as both Gemma and Ian have being living away for a good number of years, it felt like a reunion party along with their wedding.

I got some good natural reportage stuff all day, but the night when the dancing shoes came out was the peak, a lot of sore feet and heads in the morning no doubt, but a wedding that was worth it I’m sure.

WOOLHANGER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN NORTH DEVON

I love North Devon for weddings, travelling up from South Devon where I live, it always gives me a feeling of going to a whole different place.

Being a defector from South Wales 17 years ago, I still to this day feel that Devon and Cornwall are amazing places, especially to photograph weddings in and I feel very lucky to have both counties pretty much on my doorstep every day.

And so, the couple for this actual wedding were Sarah and Rich, a great pair to photograph, always smiling and having a laugh. The Woolhanger was the location for their wedding in North Devon. I had never been there before, but was bowled over when I did, amazing estate house with lush green grounds running all around it, lake at the bottom, sexy views, the wow factor was definitely there.

Both families were really cool people, and as I was laying on my propbox that evening, it ended up being a late one so Rich’s family offered I stay in their cottage on site, a stones throw away from the wedding venue, fab! I ended up having a jig on the dancefloor at the close of play that night with all the family and bridal party, with my camera bag on my shoulders, a very memorable wedding with some top people.

CAR PHOTOGRAPHY

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to photograph the new Mazda 3 for EX Magazine recently, I say lucky enough because I absolutely loved every minute of it!

Having pre thought through a good location for the shoot, with the weather dry, and the sun peeking out every now and again from behind moody clouds it was teed up quite nicely.

We took the car down to Exmouth, on the estuary and seafront, vast open spaces with the new Mazda 3 plonked delicately in the middle was the idea, and it seemed to work.

Getting back in my old beaten up car with a less streamlined body and sculptured edges later that day was a bit dissapointing to say the least, but I enjoyed my little outing to the beach with the new Mazda 3.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT DARTINGTON HALL

My first wedding of the year took me to Dartington Hall in Devon, for the happy day of Ruth and Ronnie, on a crisp January morning.
The weather was far from kind first thing, and so much so the biggest clap of thunder roared right over the top of Dartington Hall, it felt like we had been struck by lightning, I wouldnt lie to you it scared me, I heard that groom Ronnie and his best man Dave at the time who were outside under shelter when it happened hugged, theres a picture opportunity right there 🙂

All the power went off in the room Ruth was getting ready in, so an exciting start to the day. I could start to see the questions arriving on Ruths face, “How are we supposed to get pictures in that?”, but I quickly reasureed her that all you need is ten minutes of being clear from rain, and you can duck out to get some pictures, but even I at this stage was thinking whether we were going to get that break.

This was the first time I had done wedding photography at Dartington Hall, and I hope there’s much more to come. So many opportunities, little nooks and crannies, big archways and great natural light which poured in from the big reception room, it looked fit for a medieval banquet.

The service was pretty cool, his best man played bass, and there was a nice chilled atmosphere in there. It stopped raining and the sun came out, I ushered them both outside into the quad and the gardens as quick as I possibly could, as I knew this could be our only chance. It went well, thanks to our pre shoot and planning day at Dartington Hall we all new exactly what was going to happen, how long for and when, this is why a planning day is essential, and I do it with every couple I photograph.

The day went quickly, like I find they always do. Ronnie is in a band, and plays the drums, so it was a lovely touch that he played for all his guests at the start of the evening.

I wish them all the luck, a successful day and evening, the food was a bit special too 🙂
