It was such fun photographing Charlie and Lucy’s lovely Wedding at Luppitt Church and Deer Park Country House. I had photographed Sophie, Lucy’s sister’s wedding a couple of years previously so it was a pleasure to be with the family again and for such a happy occasion.
The family all stayed at Deer Park on Friday night before the wedding and Lucy got ready in one of the stylish bedrooms upstairs in the main house, supported by her fun bridesmaids and cute niece. Her stunning dress was from Kate Walker in Honiton. Fay Venner did makeup and Ellie Greensmith of Elk Exeter did Lucy’s hair.
Lucy and Charlie had a beautiful ceremony in nearby Luppitt Church before returning to Deer Park for their reception.
In our walkabout when I tend to do couple’s shots (and while guests are being seated) we used many of my favourite garden spots for photos – the pretty swinging seat, woodland, lawn in front of the house and the surrounding field. Charlie and Lucy’s speeches were fabulous and unusually, the had no less than two bands! After much partying the newlyweds spent their first night in Deer Park’s funky and luxury Tree House.
