It was the middle of a typical August summer when I went down to the Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel in Goveton, Devon. Typical in every respect as it absolutely poured down with rain – but no matter, moods were not dampened as Claire & Matt and their guests had a wonderful wedding celebration at this stunning venue.
The Hotel is in the in the stunning remote Devon South Hams. A wonderful luxury country house, with acre of land to explore (if it hadn’t been raining so much of course).
People often ask me what draws me to this particular style of documentary wedding photography and it’s a question I can easily answer; the emotion! Emotion, love, happiness, funny faces, lovely faces, happy faces, weepy faces – it all makes up the story of the day and I was struck when editing Matt and Claire’s wedding how much emotion truly came out of the wedding. From the ceremony to the celebrations immediately after to the intimate dance floor moments.
It was a lovely wedding, and, as usual, here are a selection of my favourites from the day. All taken in a reportage style and hopefully telling the true story of the day.
