Jacynth got ready for her wedding in the home she grew up in. Her parents still live in Newton Ferres, and I fell in love with their stunning house. It’s on a sunny cliff overlooking the water surrounded by a beautiful garden that her parents have lovingly cared for over the years. One of the best parts of a bride getting ready in a family home is being surrounded by so many family heirlooms, like her parents wedding photos.
The ceremony was held at their local church and then afterwards everyone headed over in a vintage bus to Shilstone House, near Ivybridge in Devon. Shilstone House is a stunning Georgian Manor House that feel really different from many of the wedding venues that I’ve seen. Since it’s still a family home, there’s still a lot of comfort and personality to the house. It’s perfectly situated on the Devon Hills, and there is just loads of sunlight, which is perfect for photography.
The thing that made this wedding the most fun was of course the people. Jacynth and Dan’s friends and family are really fun people to photograph and be around. They made shooting this wedding so easy and I spent so much time laughing. From the “Michael Jordan” appearance to figuring out new ways to use top hat’s, they were a dream to photograph.
Thank you so much for having myself and my second shooter, Siobhan, apart of your wedding day!
The church services was held at Holy Cross Newton Ferrers. The wedding breakfast and reception was held at the beautiful Shilstone House in Devon and that incredible cake you see was made by Edible Essence (and I can promise you it tasted just as good as it looked).
