Rebecca and Jamie’s Wedding in Somerset and Devon

Jamie and Rebecca married in Somerset in the middle of August. A lovely countryside wedding with the ceremony being held at the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, West Buckland, in front of their friends and family.

The reception and evening entertainment was held at the family farm, where Rebecca grew up in Devon. The farm courtyard was completely transformed from the first time I had seen it, in to a place where they had games, including snooker no less, and a large marquee to hold the wedding breakfast, speeches and dancing.

Food Photography with Boston Tea Party

Last month we were back with Boston Tea Party in Plymouth to photograph their new menu. Working in their large, newly opened and beautiful Plymouth cafe, we selected a corner to work from that wouldn’t interfere with their customers and got to work, with their chef bringing new dishes up for us to photograph in situ. Making the most of our corner, we used the blue seating and warm brown table to add to each photograph. Leaving large areas for the marketing team to add text too.

Previous photography by us is now being used throughout the cafes countrywide, the results are great and we’re looking forward to working with them again soon.

River Cottage wedding with Kate and Josh

I arrived to a relaxed Kate, fresh and ready for the day ahead at a lovely cottage placed in the narrow streets of Lyme. The girls were full of life and laughter, chatting and getting ready with plenty of time before having to head over to RCHQ. After documenting for a while at the cottage, I made my way over to see Josh who was staying just down the road, and found him slightly less fresh, carefully working his way through a bacon sandwich and cup of tea.

Due to the night before maybe taking a slight toll on Josh, his groomsmen fired him up to get down to Lyme Regis beach, right by the famous cob to take a swim in the less than warm water to freshen up and knock some life back in to him. I stayed firmly on shore and photographed as the water shocked the life back in to him.

Once both parties were ready, they each made their way over to River Cottage for the ceremony. It was held by Josh’s mother who just happens to be a registrar.

Afterwards, it was out into the nearby River Cottage fields for garden games and canapés, including the famous River Cottage welly wanging. Kate’s bridesmaid also brought along a few other games for the guests to play.

The wedding breakfast (breakfeast?) was, as usual, superb. The River Cottage chefs being some of the best, they always serve up a mean dish and today was no exception. The freshly made lemon tart was amazing, I can tell you first hand.

Once everyone was suitably full and their cake cut, it was over to the Yurt for coffee and nibbles and then first dance and drinks! The evening band ‘The Hijackers‘ were really excellent, at one point a friend of Kate and Josh (who luckily is a singer himself) got up on stage and belted out a few songs.

Sheryl and Jason’s Somerset Wedding

Sheryl and Jason contacted me from a recommendation of a previous wedding groom (he’s also a wedding photographer) whose wedding I photographed a few years ago now. They were to have a relaxed and intimate wedding at Widcombe Grange in Somerset, a gorgeous country house set in 22 acres of landscaped woodland on the Blackdown hills.

They needed me for just a few hours to capture the last parts of their getting ready, to capture those pre-wedding nerves and excitement. I photographed through the ceremony to the group/couple photos and up to a speech from Sheryl’s father just before their wedding breakfast.

It was a beautiful, fun and relaxed day and they really lucked out with the weather. I’d heard from my sources the evening went just as well with some slightly inebriated dancing.

Sheryl and Jason are both extremely lovely people and documenting their wedding day was a great treat, I hope their wedding photography brings them continued joy and a great family keepsake to cherish.

Lorraine and Matthew’s River Cottage Wedding

I met Lorraine and Matthew in a small café in Guildford just weeks before their wedding, it was quickly clear that this couple were foodies through and through but this came as no real surprise considering they had chosen River Cottage for their wedding. Renowned for its excellent food to the point it has its own mainstream TV show here in the UK.

On the wedding day itself, their ceremony was held on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful landscape of rolling hills and clouds at Cranberries Luxury Hideaway. Luckily for all of us, the weather behaved for the most part, with the sun peeking out from behind the clouds and the wind dropping often enough to bring a really lovely countryside spring feel. After the ceremony, it was a quick trot back to the barns for a drink before heading over to the famous River Cottage HQ by bus.

I can usually assume that any wedding held at River Cottage will be filled with relaxed, down to earth, fun-loving people who also enjoy quality and the finer things in life too. Matthew and Lorraine were no exception to this; their families and friends enjoyed the welly wanging garden games and after some good hard wanging everyone had built up enough of a hunger to head on in for speeches and food. The River Cottage chefs did not disappoint, especially with the freshly hand-made croquembouche from their specialist in-house pastry chef.
