Wedding Photography at Upton Barn and Walled Garden – Devon Wedding Photographer

Wedding in Collumpton, Devon

There is something very whimsical about the Devon countryside and it really sets the scene for a gorgeous wedding event. It has a relaxed atmosphere, but with a traditional English feel and charm. It was the perfect setting for Mike and Julie’s French and English celebrations.

Upton Barn and Walled Garden

This venue has been completely fitted out and every last detail has been thought of. The countryside surrounding the barn goes on for miles, and the walled garden is bursting with colours and floral scents. I couldn’t imagine a better spot for Julie (being a gardener) to say her vows to Mike. A little rain threatened the day a bit before and during the ceremony, but the staff were well prepared with umbrellas and ways to keep guests dry. During the cocktail hour and reception there was loads of space for guest to spread out and mingle, while the drinks and signature cocktails flowed.

The Wedding Day

The day progressed flawlessly for Mike and Julie, as they had done so much prep and planning beforehand. They were both truly able to relax and just enjoy spending time with their guests. Flowers, food, and herbs were a centrepiece of the day. Julie is a gardener in London and designed the most gorgeous bouquet with a variety of edible flowers and herbs and a gorgeous artichoke at the centre.  The speeches were done in both French and English to accommodate the guests who had traveled from the continent. Mike and Julie requested lots of natural candid shots of them and their guests, and as you can see there was joy and laughter all day long.

Southampton Wedding Photographer – Michelle and Gary
I had every intention of blogging two weddings before leaving the states. But some things can't be planned for, and our last two days at home were pretty packed full.Onto the wedding ::This celebration was so intimate and so beautiful. Michelle and Gary have a tight knit family and about 20 of them were there to be a part of their day. The setting was on Manasota Key at Gary's step father's house, and it as stunning. There was hardly anyone else on the key apart from this wedding party. I love how Michelle and Gary broke from tradition, and made the day about them and their commitment to each other. Surrounded by love and good vibrati ...

Southampton Wedding Photographer :: Kim and Christian
I really hate that this much time has passed since I photographed this wedding. It's been hanging over my head, but unfortunately reliable internet is not a luxury afforded to me during my travels.When I met Kim, I felt a sort of kindred connection with her. If only because she was an American girl marrying a British boy, and she was giddy in love. I can sort of relate to that ;-)Their wedding day was filled with love and a huge portion of emotion. The father daughter dance was especially a tear jerker.Cheers to Kim and Christian.Travel Update :: We are currently in France, visiting my inlaws at their home here. We ...
