Justine & Ben's Summer Evening Pre Wedding Shoot in Salcombe, Devon

Its no wonder that the moment Justine and Ben logged in to their Web Album to view these photo’s that thye instantly emailed me to say how pleased they were that they have booked me for thier Wedding at Salcombe Harbour Hotel in September.

We met last Saturday evening in Salcombe, a warm and beautiful Summers evening, low sun and a beautful colour to the water too.

Justine admitted within minutes of meeting me that she wasnt overly used to being photographed and that she wasnt sure what to expect from their shoot.

We walked and chatted along Cliff Road all the way to North Sands, and at all times getting to understand each other a little more. The initial photos are beautiful, I chose a seated shot using the low sun to cause sun flares and hair lights to add a touch of summer romance, we progressed to shots nearer the beach and more so in public, ending with a set of individual portraits, each time slowly gaining more and more confidence.

Pre Wedding Shoots add so much to a Wedding, they help you get used to being photographed and how photography can be fun, simple and captured without any stress. This is invaluable as on the day itself you dont want to be concerned about the photography!

Have a look at a selection of images from a very lovely Summers Evening in Salcombe…

Suzanne and Saul's Salcombe Wedding - Salcombe Harbour Hotel, Devon

One of my favourite venues, always a pleasure to come back to Salcombe Harbour Hotel to photograph a Wedding. Suzanne and Saul live locally and choose the contemporary surroundings of this luxury hotel to hold their Wedding.

Being February the weather was very changable but with such great interiors the photography was catered for. We did manage to get out to the terrace for a few photos. Suzanne and Sauls Wedding was very much a party atmosphere with so many friends, a really lovely day and a pleasure to have been part of. Suzanne's dress was designed and created by Kate Walker Bridal.

Venue: Salcombe Harbour Hotel, Salcombe, Devon

Dress: Kate Walker Bridal, Plymouth

Cake: Chocaccino, Plymouth

Flowers: Studio Flowers, Kingsbridge


A Wedding by the Sea, St Clements, Hope Cove Devon

This very very tiny Church sits on the Cliffs looking out across the Sea. Perched on the Cliff between Inner and Outer Hope, Hope Cove in South Devon.

I have been lucky to shoot a couple of Weddings here, its only been possible to get married here under special license but thats all about to change!

This featured St.Clements Church Wedding is of Michelle and Paul. Michelle got ready at her mum and dads house in Inner Hope and choose the little Church for her Wedding rather than go in land to the larger Church at Galmpton.

The sun shone, the Cove looked tranquil and we had the most amazing weather to capture some stunning images to keep forever.

The old Life Boat House and thatched cottages of Inner Hope provided glorious back drops to the photos, but most of all the evening sun and misty sun set proved too good to miss! This is a Coastal Wedding at its best!
