Zoe and TJ. The divine, laugh-a-second, so-in-love-it’s-outrageous Zoe and TJ. I’m not really sure where to start! Maybe a bit of back story.
Setting the Scene
Salcombe is a seaside town that Devon is famed for, and it’s easy to see why. Celebs and sailors flock here (myself included; sailor, not celeb…yet…) as soon as the sun makes an appearance, and brides and grooms book well in advance to celebrate their weddings in this highly sought after location. TJ grew up here, and met Zoe through her Dad, whom he sailed with when he was, in her Dad’s affectionate words, “a little boat monkey”. Haha! So this meant they were very well known in this little town with an enormous reputation, and we were totally pumped for the party to come.
As expected, the bride prep was full of bustle, laughter and happy chaos, while the groom prep was full of, arm, bustle, laughter and happy chaos. You might see a pattern emerge as the day goes on…
Traffic Stopping Mischief
The boys were marvellously misbehaved in the lead up to the ceremony, as Zoe nervously stepped into her dress and made her way to the church. The laughter continued throughout the ceremony, which felt wonderfully every bit like the celebration it was, and didn’t stop as everybody burst out of the church doors and made their way, en masse, through the busy streets of Salcombe. This gorgeous couple literally stopped traffic as they strolled along the water’s edge and into the pretty Cliff House, with the famous Salcombe estuary for its incredible backdrop.
All Things Party – The Glitter, The Sweat, The Oh So Beautiful Band
You might have guessed by now that the speeches were an endless source of belly laughs, and it probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn that there was an EPIC dress change, an outdoor glitter make-up artist, and A LOT of sweat on the dance floor. Well, have you seen the band? I think anybody who appreciates the beautiful things in life, wrapped in skin tight white denim and silver sparkles, would have been sweating before they even started playing. Is it just me, or is it getting quite warm in here…?!
Zoe and TJ were just buzzing all day long, with excitement, love and off the chart fun vibes, and getting to spend such an incredible day with them, documenting the whole celebration for them to re-live for years to come, was a dream.
