Wedding in Devon

On Saturday I photographed the wedding of Natasha and Iain in a very spring like Devon. The reception was held at Natasha's family home in the quiet hamlet of Furley and the ceremony was at the St John the Baptist church in nearby Membury.

As usual I arrived a little early to check out the locations and say 'hi' to everybody. I photographed the wedding of Natasha's sister, Coquita, last year so I was already familiar with some of the family. As the Bride prepared for her big day the two young bridesmaids played on the swing without a care in the world.

During the ceremony we had a reading from the 'The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint Exupery and sang 'I Vow to Thee My Country' before the Bride and Groom came down the aisle to 'The Liberty Bell'!

Back at the house, instead of the usual canap├ęs, afternoon tea was served including cucumber sandwiches and cream scones.

The wedding breakfast included a starter of crab meat salad and a main course with barbequed lamb. The Bride and Groom work in the film industry and named all of the tables after different film Directors including Stanley Kubrick, Clint Eastwood and Woody Allen. The catering was by the team at Gordon Sutherland and all of the fabulous flowers were created by Natasha's mother, Cathryn.

The newly weds are now on their way to Sicily for a weeks honeymoon.
