I was totally delighted when Johanna and Andy invited me to be part of their special wedding day. I drove all the way down to Dartmoor in Devon to the wedding venue called Ever After. Nicola and her husband Steve who own this wonderful place to get married, had decided to get married at home a few years ago. They have the most special house in the middle of the Devonshire countryside. After their wedding, they decided to offer it to other couples to get married and now they have one of the best wedding venues in the UK on their hands. Ever After – a place I want to come and photograph more at.
Ever After – one of Devon’s best wedding venues
Picturesque doesn’t even do it justice. The gardens and grounds looked incredible in the early summer sun. Johanna and the girls got ready at Ever After in the bridal suit, and Andy and the boys got up to all sorts of antics in Travistock nearby. The bride and groom had also hired a good friend of mine, and one of the UK’s best wedding magicians Sam Fitton and we drove down from the north together. As Sam had little to do during the day before he performed, he borrowed one of my cameras and took a few photos himself and did a great job as a first time. There is no way I can even attempt magic.
The wedding ceremony took place in the barn – it was quite an emotional time. So special to see these two get married even though I had only met them a couple of hours before. After the service and officially becoming husband and wife, it was out in the garden for drinks and to have a great time. The weather just held and what a great wedding to be a photographer at. Frame after frame was great – I was having so much fun.
Sam, as always, performed brilliantly, and I managed to capture so really great reactions. It was nothing but a pleasure to drive all that way to be part of Johanna and Andy’s day. I do enjoy travelling to weddings and exploring new parts of the country. A huge congrats to them both. A big thank you also to Nicola for being so accommodating and helpful.
