Two weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing Sara and Adam's wedding at the amazing Millbrook Estate, who specialise in small and intimate weddings, based in North Devon.
A growing trend in weddings is to cover the bridal preparations, which Sara wanted too, but the extra variable was to shoot the groom's preparations as well, which is not all that common, but gives a great insight to the day.
With their two little boys, Harrison and Albie, it provided lots of potential to capture some great photos on a moody November afternoon. If you're getting married outside of the summer season (or even right in the middle of it) and you're worried about the weather, don't be. It is what it is, enjoy the day and it will help create some lovely memories, and often lovely photographs.
Situated in a secluded holiday cottage estate, the owners, Kate and Bob, built their own wedding venue for their wedding and now hold weddings for anyone else who prefers to have a intimate ceremony. The summerhouse is decorated to preference and creates a great environment for two people to get married.
The focus, as always, was to capture moments throughout the day. Not ask any of the guests to stop, smile and pose, but have a un-invasive approach and wait for the right moment. I believe this is less disruptive on the day and also creates better photos. In years to come, looking back at the wedding book, it will be those moments people talk about.
