Its been some time since I have photographed a wedding at Pickwell Manor in North Devon, and this day was well worth the wait. :) I first met this pair about 18 months ago in London over a nice bottle of Vino Tinto, and after meeting again a few months ago again in London, it was cool for the very rural setting of Pickwell near Braunton to have finally come around. With families from as far afield as the USA and Asia, and some as close as living at Pickwell itself, we were in store for a great mix of people coming together.
Officially married well before the ‘wedding’ day itself, it was a very laid back day with a ceremony led by the Groom’s Dad, after of course a trip to the beach in the early afternoon for an american style ‘first look’. – a first for me.
Lots of laughs and drinking in the gardens and rooms of Pickwell Manor before some heartfelt and hilarious speeches and a beautiful sunset beyond Lundy Island.
Here is just shy of 100 pictures from their wedding celebrations, about 15% of the final pics.Enjoy. :D
