impromptu pre-wedding shoot by richard murgatroyd…

This impromptu pre-wedding shoot is adorable.  Jess & Rob got married here at Ever After in June this year and picked Richard Murgatroyd to capture their day.   Richard is based on London, as were Jess & Rob so it made sense for them to meet up with Richard close to home. Photographers are usually willing to travel nationally (and some internationally) to cover a wedding.   Unlike other wedding suppliers like cake makers and florists, photographers can’t (or shouldn’t!) cover more than one wedding a day and as they have no cake or flowers to spoil on a long journey, travelling to a wedding is not such a big deal for them, they just load up their kit and go. Do be aware though that if your wedding photographer is travelling a long way for your wedding, you will have to pay their accommodation for a night and maybe two nights depending on the distance.   Make sure you factor … Continue reading

Walking in a winter wonderland; elopement wedding ideas

Elopement wedding ideas Part 3; walking in a winter wonderland   I don’t know what it is, but there is something particularly romantic about a winter wedding, wouldn’t you agree? Add that to the already existing romance of our elopement weddings and, voila, you’ve got yourself a wedding more (can you guess?) yep, romantic than when Harry met Sally… Plus, what a great theme! As we are all about the elopement weddings ideas, I just couldn’t resist showcasing this fab winter wedding! And before you say ‘but it’s summer’, I know, and it seems a tad strange writing about frosty mornings when the sun is blazing outside (okay, not blazing, but let’s at least pretend Britain knows how to summer…) but, there is still time to book a winter wedding for the end of 2017, so get your creative juices flowing and be inspired by Kay and Andrew’s wintery style. Kay wore this fabulous tea-length dress with frosted lace, adding to their December style… What a … Continue reading

Elopement menu food shoot…

Some of you may already have seen some of our pics on Instagram from the elopement food photo shoot we did a few weeks ago with our private chef Harrie from Boo To  A Goose. Guy Harrop (my go-to person for food shoots, he’s the best) came back to the venue this time for another first, shooting our elopement wedding menu. Harrie is our exclusive chef for our elopement weddings (more details here if you are interested in an elopement) and she has designed 3 menus just for us for autumn, winter and spring. In the pic above you can see a some of Harrie’s starters of (bottom left) seared scallops with pea puree and chorizo butter; (top right) seared prawn with shaved fennel salad, avocado cream, ruby grapefruit and sweet potato crisp while bottom right is artichoke and parmesan pannacotta, pickled girolles, brown sherry jelly and grain mustard – I mean YUM! Next up we have a selection of main … Continue reading

Winter elopement photo shoots up on the website…

I got on a roll putting up the photos from the Magnolia Rouge shoot this morning so thought I would get on and do the winter elopement shoots we did here last year with our elopement photographer Clare Kinchin, our elopement florist Amanda Randell and our preferred elopement hair and make up duo, Jodie and Chloe from The Hair Lounge Tavistock and Jess from Visage Aesthetics. The lovely Kayleigh and Ben were our local, real life models who had got married in real life a few months earlier.   They’re just so lovely together, it was like being at a real wedding! I wanted to do a shoot here in December because I wanted to give couples a realistic view of what the garden looks like here in the winter.   There are no leaves on the trees and nothing is in flower but the venue still has its own natural beauty as you can see from the photos. We … Continue reading

Woodland wander…

Last year we did a photo shoot in the woods with the lovely Amber Persia wedding florist and stylist supremo and the fine art photographer Theresa Furey.    We created a romantic ethereal shoot with a woodland setting for the wedding breakfast and a bride wandering the woods before the wedding.   The photo shoot has been accepted for future publication by Magnolia Rouge (be still my beating heart!) so I can’t show any of the shots that are appearing in the feature but I can share some of Theresa’s gorgeous pics of the woods.   How lucky are we that this is right outside our back gate? These were shot at the beginning of June so the leaves on the trees weren’t fully out but the wild foxgloves and ferns were beginning to appear and the woodland had that ancient magical feel about it. Ok, you’ve twisted my arm, I’ll share a teeny selection from a bit of a … Continue reading
