Linda and Jay’s Coastal Torquay Wedding

Torquay Wedding

Happy first wedding anniversary to Linda and Jay. I loved being their wedding photographer and capturing their amazing coastal Torquay wedding. Looking back through the collection of photos, it is hard to believe it was an end of November winter wedding. We were blessed with wonderful blue skies and sunshine over Torquay for the best part of the day. 

My favourite moment… capturing the first look… after all the planning, anticipation and excitement… capturing this moment between two people in love… is simply amazing!

Keen for a mini adventure to capture their couples photos – 100% worth it! Wedding memories created forever.

Thatchers rock… the perfect view and coastal backdrop for your Torquay wedding. 

Wedding Video at St Audries Park in Somerset

St Audries Park wedding video.

St Audries Park country house wedding venue is located within it’s own peaceful estate close by to the coast and Quantock Hills. There is a large outdoor garden space perfect for lawn games. The Victorian orangery is a beautiful structure composed with large open windows and a glass panelled roof. This allows gorgeous natural light to flood the interior creating a bright and atmospheric environment.

Bella and Mike chose to have their wedding ceremony at St Etheldreda’s Church located at the top of the St Audries Park estate. They had their morning preparations, the wedding reception and evening party all at St Audries Park country house. We enjoyed exploring the magnificent grounds and captured them arriving down the main driveway. The Great Hall made the perfect grand setting for their evening games, first dance and party night.

Their Highlights video can be found below. All my couples receive a Full Feature video too, containing all of the ceremony, speeches and first dance. A true documentary feature of your wedding day.

Coombe Lodge is a glorious country mansion wedding venue located in Blagdon Somerset. The house is built from Bath stone and showcases beautiful limed oak panelling on the ground floor and staircase. Coombe Lodge offers 15 acres of magnificent landscaped gardens to enjoy, making the perfect backdrop for your wedding video and photos. Creating a wedding video at Coombe Lodge was a pleasure and their fantastic team worked hard behind the scenes, making the day run smoothly.

I really enjoyed creating Tobie and James’ Coombe Lodge wedding video. They had a wonderful winter wedding and despite the rain, we still made it outside to capture their couples shots. The amazing landscapes and grounds made the perfect backdrop for their Coombe Lodge wedding video. Tobie and James’ booked me for a full day and therefore received two videos. One is a Full Feature video containing all the ceremony, speeches and first dance. The other is a Cinematic Highlights video showing all the best bits of their wedding day to music. I put a lot of time into selecting the appropriate music tracks to match the atmosphere of the wedding day and help enrich the emotions captured on video. All my music is professionally licensed and therefore, the Cinematic Highlights video can be shared online with family and friends.

Wedding Video at Langdon Court in Devon

Langdon Court wedding video.

Langdon Court is a beautiful English Manor wedding venue located in the South Hams Countryside in Devon. I loved creating Laura and Harry’s wedding video at Langdon Court. We enjoyed their brilliant Jacobean garden and captured amazing shots with the nearby lake. Shooting their wedding video at Langdon Court was an absolute pleasure and the staff team worked perfectly behind the scenes to keep the day running seamlessly.

Laura and Harry received two wedding videos. One is a Full Feature video containing all the ceremony, speeches and first dance. The second is a Cinematic Highlights video, showing all the best bits from their Langdon Court wedding. All my music tracks are professionally licensed and therefore the Cinematic Highlights video is perfect for sharing online to family and friends. Every wedding is unique, and so I carefully select the best music tracks that match the atmosphere and emotions captured on video from the day.

An epic surprise for Laura on the day was a secret coordinated dance routine led by Harry after their first dance. Bespoke Disco played Harry’s mix track and Laura was ushered to a front row seat to watch the show! Harry had practised a solid dance routine involving his friends, family and both sets of parents! This was fantastic to watch and all recorded on video to treasure forever.

Kingston Estate is a luxury Devon wedding venue in Totnes. With a grand Georgian country mansion, gorgeous gardens and a beautiful converted barn, Kingston Estate is the perfect venue to cater for all wedding styles and themes. The variety of formal gardens allows for so much creativity to create some beautiful wedding video and wedding photo memories on your special day. I really enjoy working at Kingston Estate wedding venue and their wonderful staff work hard behind the scenes to make your day run perfectly.

I create cinematic wedding video using top of the range cameras and electronic stabilisers. This gives your wedding video a professional finished quality that mimics the elegance of Kingston Estate wedding venue. I invest in video cameras that are leading with the latest technology but are very compact in size and most importantly inconspicuous. Therefore, be assured that I will not attend your wedding with enormous TV style cameras but with my compact DSLR and mirrorless cameras in which are leading video technology advancements today.

With my discrete video and photography cameras and dressed smartly in a suit, wedding guests often mistake me as a guest too. Blending in to your wedding day allows me to capture beautiful spontaneous candid shots of you and your guests enjoying the day.

Devon Wedding Show 2017

I had a great time exhibiting at The Devon Wedding Show in Torquay. It was lovely to meet and chat to lots of couples enquiring about my photography and videography services.

Serenity, a bridal shop in Newton Abbot, hosted a magnificent catwalk show and I’ve captured it all on video for you to see!


Haldon Belvedere – Wedding – Amy and Gareth

The Haldon Belvedere is a beautiful castle wedding venue situated on the highest hill at Haldon Forest near Exeter. When Amy and Gareth booked me as their wedding photographer, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding, and I got even more excited when I found out they had chosen Haldon Belvedere as their venue.

I arranged to meet up with them both at the Haldon Belvedere on the venue’s wedding fayre open day. This gave me the chance to explore the castle with them and scope out the best compositions for their photos. It was also great to meet Janet – Haldon Belvedere’s wedding planner.

On the big day, Janet ensured timings ran smoothly and was very helpful, allowing myself, Amy and Gareth plenty of time after the ceremony to explore the castle and capture our desired couples shots. The views are absolutely stunning from the rooftop of Haldon Belvedere, and on a clear day you can see for miles into the distance. Haldon Belvedere is secluded from the rest of the forest, allowing a sense of privacy and peacefulness on your wedding day. Amy and Gareth were an amazing and fun couple to work with. As well as capturing the essential traditional family photos, we captured many hilarious, joyous and spontaneous moments throughout the day too.


The Grand Hotel Torquay – Wedding – Victoria and Nick

The Grand Hotel Torquay is situated right on the English Riviera seafront. From the Grand Hotel, you can see beautiful views across Torbay, and the beach is only across the road too!

I first met Victoria through a local South West car club. She was impressed with my automotive photography and after looking at my website, wanted to book me as her wedding photographer. She mentioned her venue was The Grand Hotel Torquay. Being a local living in Torquay myself, I quickly suggested options for photos on the beach opposite and for couples and group photos to be taken in The Grand Hotel’s gorgeous garden area.


Wedding Video at Rockbeare Manor in Exeter.

Rockbeare Manor is situated on the outskirts of Exeter. This countryside manor wedding venue is surrounded by Devon’s beautiful scenic views. I couldn’t wait to film a wedding there and edit together a wedding video. When Ceri and Ross got in touch, they loved my candid natural style to filmmaking and wanted to book me. I was so excited to have the opportunity to film and create a wedding video at Rockbeare Manor. For all my couples, I produce two films, one full feature edit of the entire day, containing all of the ceremony, speeches and first dance. The second film is a highlights, showing all the best bits of the wedding, edited to a professional licensed music track. Ceri and Ross chose from my song list to licence the song “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. This suited perfectly to the footage I captured through their wedding day.

One of their guests, Adam, had a drone and he took a few shots throughout the day. With his permission, Ceri gave me this drone footage to edit into their videos. This shows off the stunning Rockbeare Manor perfectly. It was great to make the most of the daisy fields during the couples shots and I was very pleased with the reflection shot of Ceri and Ross kissing in Rockbeare’s fountain. Ceri requested for her wedding video to contain many different candid shots of all her guests. Therefore, I made sure to capture natural portrait shots of all the guests throughout the wedding day. Many of these can be seen in the highlights video, as you see shots of all the guests congratulating Ceri and Ross.


2016 Wedding Video Showreel

After a busy year, I knew I wanted to create this wedding video, piecing together all the best bits from the different weddings I have had the privilege of filming over 2016 in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Thank you to all the amazing couples, suppliers and venues that I have worked with! You are all amazing and because of you, I am working in my dream job – documenting unique weddings and making memories last forever – the power of wedding video!

Wedding Video at St Audries Park in Somerset

For my last wedding of 2016, I was booked by Shannon and Rob to be their wedding videographer. They chose the beautiful St Audries Park in Somerset to be their venue. It was a great opportunity to capture both sides of the preparations (bridal and groom prep). We even managed to setup a shot of Shannon and Rob holding hands (with no peeking) around a doorway just minutes before the ceremony! After the initial celebrations and confetti, we enjoyed the wonderful gardens at St Audries Park and captured some lovely couples shots. All can be seen in their highlights video!

Jenny and Terry’s Wedding

I really enjoyed capturing Jenny and Terry’s wedding day in Torbay – Devon. Their service was held at the beautiful St Mary’s Church in Brixham. After the service, we went to the historic Royal Seven Stars Hotel in Totnes for a food and drinks reception. The evening party was held at the Churston Court Hotel.


Gezzie and Mick’s Wedding

Gezzie and Mick’s wedding service was held at St John’s church in Shiphay. The wedding service was beautifully presented; featuring many personal and unique elements. Everybody had arrived to show their support and the church was full! Their afternoon and evening party was held at the Toorak Hotel in Torquay.


Wedding Video at Huntsham Court

Rachel and Ryan’s Wedding Highlights at Huntsham Court Country House in Devon.

I am very excited to show you their wedding highlights film! The day was perfect; from their beautiful service at All Saints Church to the fantastic celebrations at Huntsham Court, everyone had a great time. We made the most of Huntsham Court’s spacious and vibrant gardens. The evening party was very energetic with some superb dance moves being pulled off!


Lianne and Clint’s Wedding

Lianne and Clint’s wedding was held at Cockington Country Park in Torquay. They were blessed with beautiful weather and blue skies. I really enjoyed working with them to capture their big day! We even managed to travel to Meadfoot Beach and got some photos before the sun disappeared. The day was filled with fun, laughter and joy.


Hair Show Preparation 2016 at South Devon College

I spent the day at South Devon College photographing the hair show. The theme for the show was nature and wildlife. This show allows the hair stylist students to build their most creative designs. After all the preparation and judging, an evening catwalk show is held for all the models to show off their new hair designs. I will be posting up some evening show photos soon.


Studio Portraits

I have been arranging many portrait sessions in the studio. This is to gather a collection of different style portraits that I can use for my university module. For the portrait of Tom, he was playing his guitar and I took the photo just as I called his name. I really love the genuine result, he was enjoying playing so much, he almost forgot I was there. For Gabriella’s portraits, I used different lighting setups to produce a mysterious shadow effect.
