WEDDING: Rachael & Bart - Buckland House, North Devon

Rachael & Bart chose to get married at Buckland House, a stunning country house set amongst 280 acres of grounds in the North Devon countryside.

The couple had hired Buckland House for a week as they had so many friends and family members traveling from abroad to join them on their special day, especially as Bart (the groom) is half Australian, half Italian.

There were some great details - the table plan was built from Lego (also a fond favourite of mine), there was a washing line in the marquee for all of the ladies' hats and the cake (made by the groom's mother) was decorated with Marmite and Vegemite jars dressed as bride and groom!

Here are a few photographs from their wedding day...

Cornish Coastlines

While I was in Newquay for Lisa & Chris's wedding, I thought I ought to make the most of it. Having stayed near Tintagel the week before for a family holiday, the weather really wasn't playing ball for landscaping and the thick sea mist rolled in for the majority of the week.

The weather forecast had said thick cloud and as I finished my fish & chips in Padstow, the cloud coverage closed in and I thought that there wasn't going to be much chance of capturing a nice sunset. I set off back to the hotel and as I drove a few miles down the road, I caught a glimpse of clear sky the other side of the headland. Without time to deliberate and scout locations, I headed straight for the coast and arrived just in time for sunset.

The following evening was much the same but as I don't often spend time in Cornwall, I decided it would be a shame to miss it. Such fantastic beaches and coastline, I think I may have to go back for a landscaping holiday!

WEDDING: Lisa & Chris - Newquay, Cornwall

Here is a preview from Lisa & Chris's fantastic wedding day at The Victoria Hotel in Newquay, Cornwall.

The weather was scortching but the clear blue sky made a fantastic backdrop for their wedding ceremony on the cliffs above the Cornish coastline. After the ceremony, we headed down to Porth Beach for a few bride & groom photographs before heading back for the wedding breakfast & reception party.

I absolutely loved Lisa's bouquet - it was so unusual and the bright colours worked really well.
Lisa's bouquet was made by Beads n Bows and her cakes were made by Cupcakemama.

Studio Shoot: Oda

There is a monthly social meet & greet for professional photographers in Exeter. This is mainly based around twitter users under the hash tag #ExeterTogUp and is organised by @KirstyBurge.

This on evening was a little different to the usual pub drinks - @SnappySnaps (Exeter) had kindly given us the use of their studio so that we could all test the equipment and facilities available, as it will soon be available for hire.
This meant that some photographers, whose work doesn't normally involve studios could have a go with the equipment and others who do and have used this kind of equipment before, could see how suitable the set up may be for future opportunities.

We also had a local lens hire company there - @LensFettish (based in Newton Abbot). They brought along a selection of lenses for us to test from wide angles to tilt & shift lenses that are not so widely owned.

I made cupcakes :) and sourced the model - Oda Sonju. She is a relatively new model but was brilliant, had a great personality as you can see for the shots below and was not phased by several photographers shooting her at once.

Here are a few of my shots from the evening...
