The Great Barn in Devon: Emma & PAUL’S wedding

I immediately connected with Emma and Paul when they inquired about booking me as their wedding photographer. Unfortunately, the date they had chosen for their wedding already had another booking on my calendar. However, they were determined to have me capture their special day and managed to change their wedding date to accommodate me. I was so grateful for their flexibility and honoured to be a part of their wedding celebration.

Fast forward to their wedding day, which was set at the stunning Great Barn Devon on an autumn day. The grounds were bursting with beautiful colours creating the perfect backdrop for their big day. Even a few drops of rain here and there couldn’t dampen the spirits of these two lovebirds and their lovely guests.

The Great Barn, Devon Bridal Suite

The bridal suite served as a haven of anticipation and excitement on the morning of the wedding. Emma and her bridesmaids exuded a calm and joyful atmosphere, sharing laughter as they prepared for the significant event that lay ahead.

After all the morning preparations and Emma had donned her wedding dress, with assistance from her mum and sister, she expressed the desire for a first look with her dad. And let me tell you, her dad’s reaction was nothing short of heart-warming. It’s these genuine moments that I truly relish capturing on a wedding day – the connections between couples and their loved ones are incredibly special! Why take my word for it when you can let the pictures do the talking? Go ahead, scroll down, and take a sneak peek!

Amazing photos, amazing photographer!

We are so pleased we had Paul as our wedding photographer. Paul was not available on the date we originally wanted to book our wedding, so we changed the date to the following weekend when he was available, and we are so glad that we did! Our photos are absolutely stunning and really capture our special day. At our pre wedding shoot, Paul took the time to talk to us about all aspects of the day photography wise. We were a little apprehensive about having our photos taken as not used to being in front of the camera, but Paul made us feel so relaxed and at ease, we loved every second of it. On the wedding day Paul was brilliant, as was his second photographer Matt Higgs. They were both so professional, and also made all the photography moments so fun. Paul also saved the day with a wedding dress zip drama in the morning, I would have literally been stuck without him! We cannot recommend Paul enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, he is talented, professional, and a really fantastic person. Thank you Paul for our beautiful wedding photos, your advice on the run up to the wedding, and adding to the fun of our wedding day!
