Helen & Rich wedding at Saunton Sands Hotel
"We want our wedding to be laid-back and fun", was the phrase that Helen mentioned to me a few times when we met for a pre wedding chat a few months before her and Rich's wedding day and needless to say, they certainly achieve that!
Helen and Rich are not from North Devon but they have strong ties to the area, in fact the beach at Saunton was the scene of Rich's proposal whilst they were on one of many visits for a surfing holiday. So naturally the Saunton Sands Hotel was a natural choice venue for the wedding.
I met with Helen that morning at the hotel for her bridal prep and soon headed over to nearby Georgeham, for the church ceremony.
The highlight of the day for me was the whole wedding party heading down to a blustery beach for a drink or two and a game of softball. Their well rehearsed first dance was also very cool and a lovely surprise for their guests.
This was a great wedding to cover, so much going on I left that night with my head buzzing!! Helen and Rich were such a lovely couple, I wish them all the very best together.
