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.

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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
To start off my December, I was delighted to have the opportunity to photograph Debbie and Gary’s wedding. They have been members at St John’s Church in Shiphay for a long time, and the people of the church were very excited to find out they were getting married. The church was packed out with all their family and friends, and the atmosphere was thrilling.
I went along with Mark from Evolve Photography to photograph Leanne and Adam’s wedding. The wedding was held at the Buckland Tout-Saints. This luxury hotel is situated in the beautiful Devon South Hams. There was intermittent rain throughout the day, however there was a dry moment, giving us enough time to explore the hotel’s garden and compose stunning couples shots. Leanne certainly had the right idea, bringing her own wellington boots, which made some great photographs out in the garden. From the dining room decorations to the strawberries on the cake, every little detail about this wedding was planned to perfection.
