Sally & Russ: a sneak preview...

Here is a quick peep at Sally and Russ's glorious October wedding in Paignton.  They were a fantastic couple, and it was a really beautiful day.  I can't wait to blog the rest of it, but this is a little taster for now...

Jo & Rob get married in Crediton

Jo and Rob are one of the loveliest couples that I've had the pleasure of photographing, so it didn't entirely surprise me when the weather fairy was particularly kind for their day!  After a recent run of grey drizzle and autumn skies, we had the pleasure of some gorgeous autumn sunlight for their September wedding.

Jo and Rob got married in Crediton, which has the most incredible church. Apparently it was the cathedral for the region before Exeter's was built - the interior of the church is just awe-inspiring and an amazing place for a wedding.  They then enjoyed a wonderful ride from the church in an amazing old Bentley, passing some lovely scenery through the Devon lanes.  We stopped off on the way to take a couple of photos up near Castle Drogo to make the most of the stunning views across the valley, then headed down to Fingle Bridge for the reception.

After a relaxed meal, the guests were able to enjoy some time outside before the evening celebrations.  It was just magical with the late afternoon sunlight filtering through the leaves, and the sound of the water running past under the bridge.  Jo and Rob then shared their first dance as a ceilidh with the rest of the wedding party.

A family session in the morning sun...

Here are a few photos from one of my very favourite ever portrait sessions.  Morning sunlight can be incredible if you are lucky with the weather like we were.  I just loved the girls in their gorgeous pink dresses, backlit by the sun - they looked a little bit magical in that light.  We also managed to squeeze in a handful of photos at home afterwards, so a very successful morning all round!
