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 Photography :: Dyana and Chris
Maybe one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings, is being able to see a couple at their absolute best. It's one of the happiest days of their lives, they've planned the entire day down to the last detail, and they both look absolutely gorgeous. They are surrounded by the people that they love most in the whole world, and those people are shining so much light onto them. You hear the stories of their lives, both as individuals and as a couple up to that point, and being there makes you feel like part of the story as well. You can see the goodness in both the bride and the groom reflected on the faces of their loved ones and you hea ...
