Emily & Chris

PICKWELL MANOR, GEORGEHAM, DEVON

It was a blisteringly hot day when I arrived at Pickwell Manor and I was immediately captivated by it’s setting, the beautiful gardens and the stunning views across the surrounding Devon countryside.

Emily and Chris’s colour scheme was striking, bold splashes of yellow and cobalt blue. The groom, his best man and the ushers all wore bright yellow ties, buttonholes and socks and the bridesmaids wore knee length yellow and white dresses with blue suede shoes and blue pearl necklaces. Even mum joined in with a matching yellow belt and handbag. The bride’s bouquet was a bunch of summery sunflowers and in contrast the bridesmaids carried posies of blue cornflowers.

There were lots of original touches that made this wedding stand out. A folding screen filled with photos recording Chris and Emily’s life together, temporary tattoos for the guests to wear and lego models of each guest holding a little flag with their name on as place settings.

Nikki’s dad drove the couple down to Putsborough beach, 5 minutes away from the Manor, in his VW camper van. It was a great opportunity to take some beautiful, relaxed images of the couple messing about together on the beach. That’s when I found out Emily’s colour scheme included her toenails as well!

Then it was back to the Manor to join the guests on the lawn for champagne and games, I particularly love the shots of Emily hula-hooping.

Emily’s mum made what was very possibly the tallest cake I’ve ever photographed – a 16-layered sponge cake – which thankfully didn’t topple over, although it looked like it would at one point! The couple had also written their own ‘recipe’ for a relationship called ‘A good wedding cake’, full of all the things it takes to make a relationship work and thrive… definitely food for thought!
