Winter Wedding at Deer Park

Bethany & Michael

Christmas wedding at Deer Park Devon

What a wedding day! I walked away with dirty knees from the epic dance floor action and with a big smile on my face. This was my fourth time as a wedding photographer at Deer Park, there always seems to be a new feature for the couples to enjoy every time I come back here. I met Bethany and Michael close to a year before the big day, and they were bringing friends and family from across Cornwall to visit.

Wedding Morning

I've said before in blog posts that the morning of a wedding day sets the tone for what's to come, and in this case it was full of laughter. Looking back I think it was hard to get an image that didn't include a big smile or laughter. Bethany was getting ready with her bridesmaids, just a short walk from the ceremony room in the orangery downstairs, with what can be described as an eclectic playlist on the go. If you're wondering, it included the likes of B*Witched and Notorious B.I.G. Michael and his groomsmen were getting ready in the treehouse making sure there wasn't a drop of port left and getting those last wrinkles out of the ties!

It was a lovely ceremony. There are some fantastic registrars working in Devon, and they really add something to the wedding ceremony. Upon the exit back down the aisle it's fair to say I was a little surprised by the loud confetti cannons!

Wedding Reception

Bethany and Michael's wedding was in early December, but we were treated to some great weather, as long as you could brave the cold! We did experience some drizzle come the evening but not enough to stop the fireworks from happening! The speeches included a couple of surprises, one of Bethany's bridesmaids happened to be sharing her birthday with the wedding day, so out comes a caterpillar cake! Poor Michael fell victim to a stag do requirement, always have your playing card on your person when called upon, or down your drink!

The wedding day ended with some great dance floor action, not forgetting the fifteen minute version of the 5ive Mega Mix and the dance routine to Whigfield's Saturday Night. The dance off was my highlight to photograph in the evening, there was one clear winner, and I'll let you guess who that was...
