Getting to know Danielle and Will

A ‘getting to know you’ / engagement shoot is a really nice way to spend some time with our couples before their big day.  We met Danielle and Will at the beach in the run up to sunset and had a great time hanging out and making some fun photographs together. It’s their wedding soon and we’re very excited to meet up and do it again!

Laura and Paul’s Beaconside Devon Wedding




Laura and Paul, from the South East, met at Laura’s previous place of work. They love the Westcountry, hoping to live here one day and chose Beaconside House in Bideford for their beautiful, laid back wedding on a gorgeous sunny day. Beaconside has fantastic outdoor spaces with stunning views as a background to the ceremony, lots of pretty garden for drinks and mingling and great locations for some cosy couple portraits. By choosing to get ready there as well, Laura and Paul ensured a relaxed day spent with guests, rather than rushing from one location to another.

We had a lot of fun with Laura, Paul and their guests. A brilliant crowd that were never short of emotion- tears of joy, laughter, some gentle ribbing and full of energy on the dancefloor. A perfect match for our relaxed, photojournalistic style!


Buckland House in Devon- Laura and Dan’s Wedding

Laura and Dan

Laura and Dan met online but bonded over a very long dog walk in the Wye Valley. They’re an honest, openhearted couple who love the outdoors and exploring new places. They get away as often as possible in their vintage van. They dream of a future involving tree houses and yurts. All of this combined really shined through in their very unique Buckland House wedding- they had clearly put so much of themselves into it.

Their Buckland House Wedding

The day centered around Buckland House, near Beaworthy in North Devon. Laura and the girls got ready there in the morning while everyone met outside. Then a fantastic procession of family and friends wound it’s way through the woods to a clearing among the trees. Laura walked down the natural aisle, in a dress by Unique Dress, to Ben Howard’s “Depth over distance”. The very emotional ceremony started there in such a beautiful, still setting.

Then it was back through the woods to the grounds of Buckland House for their second ceremony. Martin Warren led the moving and lighthearted ceremony in the beautiful chapel. Followed by some well deserved congratulations and confetti.

After some mingling in the sunshine, with games on the lawn, everyone made their way to their fantastic yurt for some brilliant speeches and great food by Oaktree Occasions.

Back to Buckland again for some dancing with music by the Melody Makers before we headed out to explore the grounds for some evening portraits.

Photographers at Buckland House

Laura had mentioned previously that she loves to see raw emotion in photographs, but is also very keen on artistic shots where visions come to life. That’s a great description of what we do throughout a wedding! The lovely Laura and Dan provided us with such a varied, emotional day in a series of gorgeous locations. It was a joy to be there to tell their story.
