Pynes House Wedding Photography
M & T
Pynes House, what a stunning wedding venue! This was my second time as a wedding photographer at Pynes House, and being based in Exeter myself it’s still hard to believe this idilic venue is so close to the city and surrounded by nothing but scenic landscape. My first visit to Pynes House was back in 2015, with the ceremony at a nearby church, so I’ve been excited to share this summer wedding with the ceremony taking place outside in the August sunshine.
The day started with bridal prep in the Northcote room, not forgetting the ironing in the hallway. With some last minute adjustments to speeches the morning went by quickly, as Jo (wedding co-ordinator) and the team were getting the seating prepared for the ceremony. The wedding ceremony itself was stunning, not only set in a beautiful location of the Pynes House courtyard, but also because it was a handfasting ceremony conducted by two friends. Every so often this happens, and it’s a joy to photograph. The bride and groom themselves are already legally married and this allows more freedom in how the wedding celebration can be structured.
With some wonderful personal vows, and with family standing nearby, each taking part by tying a knot around their hands, it was a joyful ceremony. With the sun shining it was time for canapés and everyone was chatting away swapping stories of their travels, as people travelled far and wide to see this wonderful wedding.
Now a Pynes House wedding needs an impressive cake, and what a wedding cake it was, probably the biggest talking point among the guests. Only helped by the impressive cake cutting itself! Quite Brazen, a fantastic band, smashed their set and got the dance floor going, my personal highlight being some high kicks to 500 Miles.
