ben selway wedding photographer, early teasers…

We were happy to welcome Ben Selway back to the venue recently and having not seen him for a while, he then did two weddings here on the bounce, a week apart. First up were the lovely Hayley and Dai who brought both families from Wales for a Devon garden wedding in August 2017. Ben took Hayley and Dai into the woods here at the venue for a lil couples portrait session and got these fab shots which were available as a teaser just a couple of days after the actual wedding – love that level of service. You can see from the shot above that Ben got way up high on the hill to get Hayley & Dai walking along the path along the banks of the river in our woods. Hayley told me they didn’t even know where Ben was, they couldn’t see him so they just trusted that he was doing his thing! Which he was as … Continue reading

Another real summer wedding up on the website…

I’m just getting the last of the summer weddings up on the real weddings page of the website.   Today’s is a goodie!    It’s Lauren and Paul photographed by the lovely Clare Kinchin (who incidentally is also our exclusive elopement photographer so if you want to see even more of Clare’s work here, pop over to our real elopements page) Lauren and Paul live locally in Plymouth and wanted to reflect Paul’s Scottish heritage and his job as a submariner.    Lauren had a dream dress in mind and together they made an uber stylish pair.   You can see a gorgeous hand-picked selection of Lauren and Paul’s photos here on their real weddings page but I thought I would take the opportunity to share more of their photos with you as they’re so gorgeous and I know our readers love to see our real weddings photos. Clare always take fab getting ready photos, getting all the details of … Continue reading

Featured this week on Magnolia Rouge…

We made it! Our woodland shoot from last year shot with a fabulous team has made it onto the utterly gorgeous Magnolia Rouge blog.   When I started out in the wedding business in 2014, it was one of my ambitions to be featured in Magnolia Rouge and last year I got together with the lovely Amber Persia, super talented florist and stylist and she brought on board fine art photographer Theresa Furey who shot the day on film.   We were of course blessed with our gorgeous model (always helps!) Claire from Base Models  who was such a trooper on the day as she stood in the freezing river and tried not to shiver!  Claire was made even more beautiful by our gifted hair and make up artist Nicola Pettitt.  Take a look at the full feature now on Magnolia Rouge in all its gorgeousness… I’ll be featuring some unseen shots here on the blog shortly and talking about … Continue reading

Some enchanted evening…

Our bespoke marquee is down for the winter and won’t be back up until mid-April next year.  In the meantime I thought I’d share a few photos of the marquee in the evening.  Amy & James used the marquee for their wedding breakfast.  After the wedding breakfast guests move to the terrace for tea & coffee and we change over the space for music and dancing. Whilst guests are in the marquee enjoying a delicious wedding breakfast we light the fire and the candles on the terrace ready for tea and coffee. Let the evening celebrations begin! See more of our real weddings here on our website and if you’d like to visit us here at Ever After and have a chat about holding your summer garden wedding here, get in touch!

One of our real weddings in print…

We’re thrilled to see Amy and James’s wedding in the brand new issue of Wed Magazine out this week.  The lovely Ben & Sarah from Ben Selway Photography did an epic session in the woods on the day with Amy & James.   Take a look at this selection of the woodland shots: I love these of Amy and James on the banks of the river – so romantic and Ben has managed to perfectly capture moments of intimacy in such a large space. Ben has a passion for surf photography so it was no surprise that he got into the water to get these great shots – how epic are these but of course he wasn’t doing all this in a long frock like our Amy! The woods make a most glorious back drop for wedding photos so don’t forget to bring your wellies with you on the day! If you’d like to see more photos from Amy & … Continue reading

What weddings are really about…

I love weddings, that’s why I love my job… And yes I love all the wedding details, fabulous food, cute signature cocktails, hand crafted bits and pieces for the wedding breakfast tables, swoon-worthy flowers but what really matters is the wedding ceremony.   The fact that everyone has been brought together on this day to celebrate two people in love who want their loved ones to witness their public commitment to each other. Some photos from Suzannah and Bobby’s wedding here in August were a great reminder of that point this week.   I love this series of photos capturing so completely the emotions in the exchange of vows… Bobby & Suzannah wrote their own vows and this picture of Bobby making his vow to Suzannah shows how many people were watching him speak his heart felt words but looking at his face, it’s just the two of them. This close up shows them totally in their bubble together… But … Continue reading
