Kingston Estate and late summer sunshine

This is what often happens; I am scanning weddings building portfolios for new couples and I am reminded of the most wonderful days I've spent with some of the loveliest people. This definitely includes Sophie and husband Chris and most definitely their son Harrison. 

Kingston Estate wedding

Sophie and Chris married at Kingston Estate near Totnes in Devon. It was mid-September. Perfectly warm enough for a ceremony in the sun, to linger outside with a drink and with soft early evening light. It's honestly one of my favourite months for weddings. 

Scroll on for a selection of shots from their gorgeous day and the suppliers who all helped make it happen.

Boho vibes at inspiration shoot

What's so great about working as a wedding and portrait Photographer, is all the fabulous people I get to meet. Of course this isn't just confined to the wonderful couples or families who choose me, but also all the talented and creative suppliers I get to work with.

So when Holly Williams of Hollyhocks asked if we could get together to give Devon brides some real inspiration for their beautiful bouquets and arrangements, I couldn't say no. Her creations are always a joy to shoot. But why stop there?! I'm not someone who deals in half measures so with the generosity of a handful of other local women in the wedding business, we created our boho vibes shoot at the incredible Shilstone House. 

Think succulents, copper, hand crafted calligraphy, wild and unstructured florals and you're almost there. Throw in bespoke jewelled headpieces, a clever cake, some very cool furniture, an amazing gown and stunning make-up and you've got the gist. Keep scrolling for some of the lushness.

We wanted REAL people planning weddings or elopements to know that everything they see and swoon over on Pinterest and Instagram, can be achieved with a little creativity from amazing suppliers close to home...and a few high steet favourites!
