This was such a wonderful Elopement to photograph. Shot in the middle of Devon's heat wave we were fortunate to spend a few hours photographing on one of Devon's finest beaches.
I first met with Fern up in her room prepping hair and makeup. The blissful atmosphere looking out onto the lawn cascading towards the ocean was a perfect set up. I photographed the bride's dress, shoes and jewellery as well as the couples gifts from their friends and family.
Matthew was waiting calmly at the downstairs bar of the hotel, i took him through to one of the stylish rooms of the venue to photograph some portraits. We then took to the ceremony room where we awaited Fern's arrival.
An intimate and romantic ceremony was performed followed by some celebratory drinks.
Woolacombe Bay Hotel is beautiful so although it was a gorgeous summer's day, we made time to photograph inside the hotel before we headed out.
We spent an hour or so roaming the grounds of the hotel taking advantage of the beautiful locations.
We wondered down the beach and photographed some more using the ocean backdrop to create some intimate portraits.
A relaxed and beautiful time spent documenting this couples elopement at one of my favourite Devon venues.
