Paul & Sarah’s Wedding  20th July 2013

Ceremony at St.Michael’s Church Minehead with the Reception at     The Hobby Horse Hotel, Minehead, Somerset
As we enjoyed the heat wave during July, it became obvious that Paul and Sarah were going to have perfect weather,in fact I think it was one of the few wedding days we have had booked that good weather was a certainty. The day started with a trip to the Hobby Horse in Minehead to capture Sarah getting ready, second camera at the church to film Paul arriving with his Best Man and Ushers. Sarah arrived spot on time and with a few photo shots with Dad the ceremony got underway. A lovely service was conducted by Rev. Penelope Dobbin with a reading by Steven Tancock. Photographs outside with the backdrop of the town with views of the sea. The reception was at the Hobby Horse Hotel where everyone enjoyed the sun, sipping champagne before the line up and the speeches. After the wedding breakfast there was the opportunity to get the all important family group shots then with the sun beginning to go down, off to the the beach for some nice romantic sequences. Later with a lively four piece band everyone started the evening dancing. Our thanks to photographer Paul James for his assistance, James the wedding coordinator and all at the Hobby Horse for their help. Joan and I would like to thank you both for inviting us to share your special day and wish you every happiness in the future.

James & Diana's Wedding Saturday 7th June 2014

             Ceremony and Reception at      The Woodbury Park Hotel Exeter, Devon
With storms the evening before it was a relief that the day started in sunshine with just an early shower. James with his best men were to be found in the hotel getting changed, so an ideal opportunity to record their finishing touches. Diana and her father arrived in a beautiful white Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, the customary few minutes late due to morning traffic , The ceremony was held upstairs in the “Oaks Room”, nicely decorated with flowers and coloured seat sashes. In front of 70 guests  the ceremony ran smoothly with two readings, with large open doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the golf course it made the ideal setting. After the ceremony the guests made their way to the wedding breakfast room with tables decorated in a sea side theme of pale blue and cream and out on the the terrace for Pimms and delicious hot and cold nibbles brought around continuously by the staff. Entertaining speeches followed the meal, afterwards there was time for more photographs, the grounds around the reception area led through onto the edge of the golf course, now empty of players and made a lovely backdrop for those intimate shots. The evening disco dancing included a photo shoot slide show of James and Diana taken a few days earlier whilst the first dance played, and then the evening started. I would like to thank the photographer Julian Hall for his help and the staff at Woodbury Park for their assistance throughout the day
