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

Feature wedding

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.

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.

Austrian Alps Wedding Photography – Zell am See
Winter Adventure Wedding If you need your photographer to snowboard down a mountain with you while you're in all your wedding gear, I'm your girl. This wedding was so much fun. I'm calling it an adventure wedding because a) How many weddings do you get to go to that start in a small Austrian hall (at 10am), then b) transport all the guests to the top of a mountain for lunch and a party, and c) only to all ski/snowboard down for dinner and the after party. It was organised to perfection. It was an adventure wedding. Zell am See Mike and Shula come to this ski resort, Zell am See, a few times a year. The area has plenty of terrain, but doesn ...
