January is normally a quiet month for weddings here in North Devon. However, I had the pleasure of capturing Kate and Matt's wedding at The Venue at Sandy Cove. The weather (for January) was amazing! Okay, it was pretty chilly, hence why there isn't too many outdoor photos. But for anyone planning a January wedding this was about as good as you can get!

Kate and Matt were such a down to earth couple so easy to work with. I wish them well in their married life together.

Maria & Sam wedding at Beaconside House https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2019/9/maria-sam-wedding-at-beaconside Maria & Sam wedding at Beaconside House

 

Ah, Maria and Sam's wedding! This was a highlight for a few reasons. Firstly, Beaconside is always a great venue to work at and is getting better every time time I go there. Of course, Maria and Sam were easy to work with and a pleasure to be around. Lastly, I have to mention the atmosphere of the wedding day. Maria's family are from Ireland and having a good time at an Irish wedding is par for the course! I come from Irish background and my wife is Irish too, so I know from experience what they can be like. In fact it brought back some happy memories from my own wedding back in Ireland.

This day started at Beaconside for the getting ready shots and on to a church in Bideford for the service. Once back at Beaconside the party began. Maria's father gave one of the longest speeches/jokes I've ever heard for a speech, brilliant. The food was lovely as always and the party games outside really got going, sack races and giant Jenga. I managed to prize the happy couple away for 10 minutes to get a few shots in the grounds then it was back for first dance followed by the dance floor mayhem.

What a day. So many laughs, so much good spirited fun. Gotta try and bottle this one!

Karis & Paul wedding at Tawstock Court https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2019/8/karis-paul-wedding-at-tawstock-court Karis & Paul wedding at Tawstock Court

 

I do love working at certain venues and there are a few great ones that I find myself at on a regular basis. However, I also like working at a venue for the first time. The latest new venue for me was Tawstock Court for Karis and Paul's wedding. Tawstock is huge. It used to be a school before the new owners converted it into a events venue. There is so much space and little nooks and crannies to explore. Saying that it's good for small and large weddings.

Great couple, great venue and a gorgeous summer wedding! Hope to work here again sometime soon.

Beth & Frank wedding, The Old Barn https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2019/7/beth-frank-wedding-the-old-barn Beth & Frank wedding, The Old Barn

 

What can I say about Beth and Frank's wedding at The Old Barn? Such a lovely genuine couple and a day full of laughs and emotions. Just what a wedding should be in my opinion. They were married at the beautiful Abbotsham Church, which was the first time I shot a wedding there. 

Then on to the Barn for the wedding breakfast and dodgems! One of the highlights for me was Beth's first dance with her father, a truly emotional moment as I could see the close connection they had throughout the day. A great way to end a top day!

Wow, what a place to get married! On a field overlooking the wonderful Croyde Beach in glorious North Devon. Although the sun only showed glimpses throughout the day it didn't matter as everyone just had a fab time time by the sea. Can't remember shooting a more chilled wedding than this one!


One of my favourite weddings of 2019!

One of the first weddings of the year for me and what a way to start! From the moment I arrived for the girls preparations there was so much fun and laughter to capture I didn't know where to point my camera.

I love working at Ash Barton as the weddings always have a real do-it-yourself vibe which is kind of true as there are no staff around to set things up, it's all done by the couple and there gamily and friends.

I wish Lola and Hanna all the best!

Sophie & Jon wedding at Hallsannery https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2019/2/sophie-jon-wedding-at-hallsannery Sophie & Jon wedding at Hallsannery

 

At the tail end of last year I found myself back at one of my favourite local venues, Hallsannery House for Sophie and Jon's special day. It never fails to disappoint as a venue which is good as I work there a few times every year!

Although the weather was perhaps a bit of a letdown for the newlyweds, the wedding day more than made up for it! Sophie and Jon are both musicians and play in a band, so the wedding had a bit of a music theme, although they resisted the temptation to get up and play later that evening even though the band who played were friends of theirs. 

One of the highlights was the speeches which were done on the staircase whilst the guests were packed in the main hall. Some very funny moments. This was one of my last weddings of 2018 and one of my favourites of the year.

Rozie & Mike wedding in Northam
 

I thought I'd post some photos from one of my favourite weddings of 2018. Might even be one of the best I've ever shot to be honest. Rozie and Mike were married at Northam church and had the reception at her Grans house nearby. I don't think I've ever shot a more expressive, colourful and joyful bride as Rozie.
From the moment I arrived at her bridal prep until I left later that night Rozie was full of the joys! Mike was quite a character too. One of the highlights of a fun filled day was when the wedding breakfast arrived, delivered by a local pizza company!

Lauren & Matt wedding in Dolton https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/12/lauren-matt-wedding-in-dolton Lauren & Matt wedding in Dolton
 

 

There are some amazing wedding venues in North Devon. I know this as I've shot weddings at pretty much all of them! However, every year I shoot a few weddings at farms in the County and these are in their own way just as magical and certainly unique events. Lauren and Matt had their wedding at Lauren's brother's farm in Dolton.

When I arrived Lauren was busy getting ready along with her bridesmaids and Matt was outside in a nearby field (the scene of the ceremony) greeting their family and friends arrival.

Luckily the weather held out for the ceremony even though there were a few black clouds looming overhead. After the ceremony I took the newlyweds to a nearby woods for their bride and groom photos. This is one of the reasons I enjoy farm weddings, as the landscape is new to me and there are some hidden gems, location wise for photos. In this case the wooded area was just a stunningly beautiful backdrop.

After heading back to their guests Lauren and Matt took their seats in the marquee for the meal and speeches. The rest of the afternoon was spent mingling with the guests and even a few games of table football!

I really enjoyed shooting this wedding and I wish Lauren and Matt all the best for the future.

Roz and Ruth Wedding at Ocean Kave https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/12/roz-and-ruth-wedding-at-ocean-kave Roz and Ruth Wedding at Ocean Kave

 

I would definitely include this as one of the 'special' weddings I shot in 2018. Not only were Roz and Ruth one of the nicest down to earth couples you could meet, but everything just felt right about the day. The guests were friendly and really up for a good time. The weather although a bit chilly (it was October!) was fine and dry and offered up a nice sunset that evening. The venue, Ocean Kave, was as always, the perfect place to host a wedding day!

I had a second shooter with me on the day and I'm glad I did as there was so much to capture. Both Roz and Ruth were really relaxed and chilled when we arrived for the bridal preparations. And thats the way things stayed all day, no stress or worries, just fun and laughter, just what a wedding should be!

After a beautiful ceremony in the Kave everyone moved over to the Sunset Rooms for the meal and speeches. Ruth's best man's speech was good fun as he used a slideshow to humiliate the happy couple with some silly photos.

After the meal I took Roz and Ruth to nearby Westward Ho! beach for some photos and we were met with an amazingly detailed and colourful sky for the photos, always a bonus. Then we drove back just in time for the couple to take to the floor for the first dance, quickly followed by the guests joining them for some more dancing and that was how my day ended. What a great day. I wish all weddings were this much fun!

It's about time I posted a wedding blog This was a truly memorable wedding back in September, Gemma & Mitch at Ocean Kave. One of the best weddings from 2018!

So much fun and laughter is usually the sign of a good wedding so I think the photos tell the story!

Amy & Caris wedding, Ash Barton Estate https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/7/amy-caris-wedding-ash-barton-estate Amy & Caris Wedding at Ash Barton Estate

 

I've only worked at Ash Barton Estate once before last year and I can't lie, it's a great location for a wedding! Especially good for those who like to put their own unique stamp on the day. You also get use of the whole facility for 3 or 4 days, so by the time comes for the wedding day everyone is nicely settled in already.

Amy and Caris chose to get married there and were both in great spirits when I arrived for their bridal preps. The Barn where the ceremony took place looked amazing and had some cool lighting (always a plus for the photographer!). There were also a few tears shed during the ceremony.

There were so many good photo ops all day, including the trampoline which the newly weds had to try out. Amy and Caris were such an easy going couple to work with on the day and I think the photos show what a chilled out, fun day and night it was.

Harriet and Jason's big day was a blast from start to finish. They're both from North Devon but now live in Australia and decided to return home to Devon for their wedding day. They had guests from all over including a bunch from Oz. Now thats dedication!

I started the coverage at the Torridge Inn in Taddiport, where Jason had arranged with the owner to open especially for a few cheeky pre wedding drinks. Then it was onto Little Torrington and Harriet's parents farm for her bridal prep. One of Harriets best mates from Australia who couldn't make it over for the wedding Skyped Harriet and offered words of encouragement to the nervous bide to be.

The ceremony was held at the church in Little Torrington. Then everyone headed over to the Pier House for the rest of the day's celebrations. Great wedding, great people. A good way to kick off the 2018 wedding season proper.

Chynna & Dan wedding at Ocean Kave https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/1/chynna-dan-wedding-at-ocean-kave Chynna & Dan wedding at Ocean Kave

 

Chynna and Dan found themselves in a bit of a bind after the well publicised news broke of the collapse of Monarch Airlines. As a result of Monarch's collapse the airline cancelled over 750,000 flights, including Chynna, Dan their guests flight to Lapland, which meant their planned Christmas wedding in Lapland had to be cancelled!

After such a crushing disappointment they did some google searching for a unique wedding venue in the UK and found Ocean Kave. They then went ahead and booked the wedding there for New Years day 2018. Shooting on New Years day was a first for me and also meant I had to keep any New Years Eve excesses to a minimum to make sure I had a clear head for the wedding the following day!!

Chynna and Dan must have been disappointed about their original plans being scuppered, but I'm happy to report they absolutely loved their wedding day at Ocean Kave. I'd like to wish Chynna and Dan all the best in their newly married life together.

Katie & Pete Wedding at Tunnels Beaches https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/1/katie-pete-wedding-at-tunnels-beaches Katie & Pete Wedding at Tunnels Beaches

 

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Katie and Pete's wedding from the end of October last year unfortunately fell on the day Storm Brian hit the Southwest! And it was quite a storm, with 70 plus mph winds battering the coastline and driving rain pretty much all day. This meant the planned outdoor ceremony at the fabulous setting of Tunnels Beaches had to be moved indoors.

To be fair Katie and Pete were calm and collected about it all and did just go with the flow! Despite the conditions Katie and Pete were determined to venture outside and have a few photos after the ceremony, which we did a couple of times, although it really was a case of get outside, shoot quickly, avoid being swept out to sea and get back safely inside! There was also a high tide that evening which came right up to the wall, so the waves were literally crashing against the upstairs balcony!

All this didn't stop it being a brilliant day. Katie and Pete were/are one of the nicest, down to earth couples I've had the pleasure of working with and the day was so full of joy and laughter. Just check out the last windswept photo in this blog to see what I mean. All their idea. Definitely a highlight of 2017.

Best photos of 2017 https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2018/1/best-photos-of-2017 Best photos of 2017

 

It's that time of year again. I guess this has become an annual thing for me to post at this time of year. Time for me to reflect on the previous years weddings and shoots and choose a few of my favourite photos and briefly explain why I like them. Most of the time it's not the most technically perfect shots I chose. Instead, I tend to go for the natural 'in the moment' shots that can never be repeated.

Needless to say, I enjoyed all the weddings I shot in 2017 and met some lovely couples and guests along the way. I won't lie, picking just a few to post here was quite difficult, but here goes...

 

Okay, lets get the obligatory sunset photo out of the way first! Every couple who has booked me over the years knows that I just love a sunset photo of the bride and groom. It's just something I like to get for couples on their wedding day, especially on a beach if possible. I managed to bag this shot of Amie & Dean on Westward Ho! beach just as the sun was disappearing below the horizon. Although not technically perfect, I love how they are silhouetted.

It's a bonus for me as a photographer if my main subjects are expressive people and both Anita and Peter gave me lots on the day. 

 

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 Bridal preparation is one of the best times of the day to shoot as I often get to capture the bride-to-be and her full range of emotions. From calm and chilled to nervous and excited all within the space of an hour or so. It can also be an emotional time for the parents too. Here I captured a mirrored reflection shot of Anya's mother pensively looking on whilst her daughter is getting ready to become a bride.

Both were shot within seconds of each other. The first one has groom Jim nervously waiting for his bride with a word of encouragement from his best man, causing him to smile and the next moment in tears reacting to seeing his bride Anya walking down the aisle. These moments are absolutely priceless.

 

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 Oh no not another sunset photo! Apologies, but I had to include this shot of brides Caroline and Nichola strolling away towards the sunset at Ocean Kave. I love the swath of sunlight on their dresses and the view isn't bad either!

 

Ocean Kave wedding danceFather daughter dance at wedding Ocean Kave wedding danceFather daughter dance at wedding Here is yet another double set from the same wedding. This time showing both sides of the Father Daughter dance, a real rarity at weddings these days which is such a shame. I think the expressions from bride Georgie and her father speak for themselves. I could tell from watching them both throughout the day that they had a special father/daughter bond and was hoping to capture these kinds of shots during the dance and they didn't disappoint. I must make a note to suggest to future brides that if possible having a dance with Dad, normally after the main first dance, is a very good idea. I think this year out of the 30 odd weddings I shot, just two had them.

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 When I take the bride and groom off for their wedding portraits I sometimes have to try and gauge how natural and comfortable they are in front of the camera and do a variety of things to make them feel comfortable and at ease. I had no such worries with Lynsey and Jez at Country Ways because I had shot them a few months previous during their pre wedding shoot and noted how beautifully natural they were back then. So on their wedding day I barely had to direct them to achieve a beautiful shot like this. Placing them in similarly gorgeous natural light at the location was also a factor.

 

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 One of my favourite moments of the year from one of my favourite weddings of the year. I can't remember who suggested it (I'd like to take credit but can't be sure!) but Becca and Andy's son got behind the massive wheel of their hired VW Camper and l just had to squeeze in front to fire off a few shots.

 

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 This is Gemma and Mitch during their pre wed shoot. I like this shot for a couple of reasons. Firstly it's a nice natural shot of them laughing and gazing lovingly into each others eyes. The other is it was a force 10 gale on Northam Burrows and I found this spot out of the wind at the visitor centre which gave us all a brief respite from the pounding conditions.  I think the background works really well here texture and colour wise, proving the most unusual places can serve as a good backdrop for a photo. 

 

North devon weddings in 2017 shot by MK Collins PhotographyNorth devon weddings in 2017 I like this photo of bride Nichola's facial expression as she meets her groom Alex at the Ocean Kave altar so much that I have since put it on the homepage of my website! I'll say no more.

Georgie & Dean wedding Ocean Kave https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/11/georgie-dean-wedding-ocean-kave Georgie & Dean wedding Ocean Kave

 

Georgie and Dean's wedding at Ocean Kave was one amazing wedding. They are both born in the UK but now live in Canada, so most of the wedding plans were organised and booked by the parents. So I met up with Georgie and Dean just a couple of days before the wedding for a chat and I got the sense straight away it would be a special day.

Georgie was so bubbly and full of fun from the moment I arrived at her bridal prep. Her enthusiasm seemed to rub off on everyone else too which made my job of capturing the fun really easy.

I hope the photos do the day justice!

Emily & Adam wedding at Hallsannery https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/11/emily-adam-wedding-at-hallsannery Emily & Adam wedding at Hallsannery

 

Emily and Adam's wedding was a real favourite of mine in 2017 for a few reasons. They were a lovely couple to work with, the Anglo/Canadian mix of guests, the ever stunning venue of Hallsannery and the amazing atmosphere running all day from when I arrived til the moment I left everyone dancing. If only every wedding was as good as this one!

Rebecca & Andy Wedding at Woolacombe Bay Hotel https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/9/rebecca-andy-wedding-at-woolacombe-bay-hotel Rebecca & Andy Wedding at Woolacombe Bay Hotel

 

This was without doubt one of the most enjoyable weddings I have shot this year. Why, (I hear no-one ask!)? There are many reasons. Rebecca and Andy were incredibly down to earth and a pleasure to work with on the day and their wedding day excitement was very endearing. The weather was great all day. This was also the first time I have worked at Woolacombe Bay Hotel which I found to be a brilliant wedding venue. The attention to detail was second to none. The singing waiters, but more on that later!

The excitement I mentioned above was very apparent when I arrived to capture Rebecca's bridal prep at the hotel. After an hour or so we all headed off to Morthoe Church up the road in a cool vintage school bus. After the church ceremony we all made our way back to the hotel via the winding steep narrow roads of Morthoe in the old bus.

Rebecca and Andy had a surprise for their guests after the meal in the shape of Zac and his singing waiters. Singing waiters are a great idea for weddings and I wish more couples booked them. I've actually worked with Zac and his team of waiters before and they never fail to raise the roof. All the guests were singing, dancing and standing on their chairs singing along to Livin on a Prayer and other sign-a-long tunes, which meant I was like a kid in a sweetshop taking photos of it all. There was even a conga dance which went outside and back in again, priceless!

After the fun and excitement of the singing waiters the newlyweds and I headed down to nearby beach for a few bride and groom photos in the most amazing late evening light before we had to get back to the hotel for the first dance.

I think the photos tell the story in a better way than my words ever could!

Jenny & Alex wedding at the Old Barn https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/7/jenny-alex-wedding-at-the-old-barn Jenny & Alex wedding at the Old Barn

I'd previously met up with Jenny and Alex back in London for their pre wed shoot earlier in the year and was excited back then to shoot their wedding back in North Devon at the Old Barn and finally the day arrived.

My coverage started at Jenny's parents house in the lovely village of Littleham where I found a relaxed Jenny getting ready. Soon it was time for me to head to the nearby church. Alex was there when I arrived as where his family from across the channel, many of whom made the trip from France. After the service I took some photos of the newlyweds and guests in the lovely rectory gardens next to the church before heading off en masse to the Old Barn.

I've shot a few weddings at the Old Barn now and it is quickly become a favourite of mine. One of the best things about photographing a wedding there apart from the rustic feel of the whole place is the chance to capture the bride and groom and guests having a ride on the dodgems in the theme park next door. Totally unique!

Jenny and Alex were a pleasure to work with on their big day and I wish them all the very best in the married life together!

Georgie and Matt chose the beautiful surroundings of Ocean Kave for their wedding and what an amazing day it was. You couldn't meet a nicer, more friendly couple as Georgie and Matt which made it a pleasure for me to spend the day with them and their guests.

Here is a selection of some of my favourite moments captured throughout the day, including the bride and groom shots on the surrounding Tors overlooking the Kave and ocean....

Lauren & Keri wedding at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/5/lauren-keri-wedding-at-tunnels-beaches-ilfracombe Lauren & Keri wedding at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe

 

Last month I returned to the wonderful North Devon wedding venue, Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracombe for Lauren and Keri's sun soaked wedding day. It's been a couple of years since I shot there and there have been a few changes to the venue since my last visit. The biggest was the Bath House, a separate building of accommodation for the couples and guests, which is where I met with both Lauren and Keri for their bridal prep, in separate areas of the building of course.

Both brides where quite nervous, but by the time they made their way down the tunnels to the ceremony the nerves disappeared and were replaced by big beaming smiles! After the ceremony we made our way to the beach below for a few photos then it was back upstairs to the speeches and meal.

I have to say, this was the kind of wedding I wished I was a guest, rather than a photographer, as there was so much laughter and fun I wanted to put my camera down and join in most of the time!

It was clear to me from the start that Lauren and Keri were made for each other. I constantly found them giggling and cuddling and I so much enjoyed being a part of their wedding day.

Danielle & Richard wedding at Woolhanger Manor https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/5/danielle-richard-wedding-at-woolhanger-manor Danielle & Richard wedding at Woolhanger Manor

 

Here is one of my favourite weddings I just didn't get around to blogging from last year. Danielle and Richard at Woolhanger Manor.

When couples book a wedding in the month of July they tend to hope the weather will be fine. After all, it is the middle of summer right? Well this is the UK so, not really! It rained all day, but to their credit it didn't really bother Danielle and Richard and so it shouldn't have. They and their guests still had a great day.

I started my day at Danielle's house in Bideford for her bridal prep where I found her in typical bride-to-be excitement mode. I waited until she got into her magnificent dress before I headed up the road to Fremington church for the ceremony where groom Richard was waiting.

Then it was onto Woolhanger Manor. It was my first time shooting at Woolhanger and I hope it isn't my last. It's a lovely venue, even in the rain! There's lots of outside space and the main music hall is just stunning with it's pipe organ centre piece. Definitely one of the best reception rooms I've ever seen in North Devon. I waited for a break in the rain and quickly whisked Danielle and Richard outside for a few bride and groom photos before the rain came back again with a vengeance.

Danielle and Richard were such a lovely couple and it was a real pleasure capturing their special day!

Sheree & Dean Barnstaple Guildhall and Croyde Beach wedding https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/3/sheree-dean-wedding-barnstaple-guildhall-and-croyde Sheree & Dean wedding, Barnstaple Guildhall and Croyde Beach

 

Sheree and Dean's wedding had so many great moments to capture, I came home almost dizzy! The day started in Croyde where Sheree was getting ready with her family and friends. I then made the short trip into Barnstaple to the Guildhall for the wedding ceremony.

I must give a special mention to the Guildhall as it was my first time shooting there. The council chamber room where the ceremony took place was a stunning space to have a ceremony. The old paintings and high ceilings screamed history on a grand scale. In fact it used to be the town's courtroom back in the day. Stunning!

After the ceremony everyone headed into the adjacent Pannier market hall which, luckily for us had a room full of Union Jack flags on display, great for a couple of photo opportunities!

The whole wedding party then headed back to Croyde and the reception marquee in Lime Kiln field overlooking the beach, another stunning setting.

The rest of the day was a mixture of everyone having fun and basking in the glorious sunshine. The last thing I had to do was take Sheree and Dean down to the beach for a few final bride and groom photos. A fitting way to end a brilliant day!

Amy & Mel wedding at Ocean Kave https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/2/amy-mel-wedding-at-ocean-kave Amy & Mel wedding at Ocean Kave

 

Over the next few weeks I'll be posting blogs of weddings from last year as there were quite a few I never got around to posting. 

Here is Amy and Mel's special day at Ocean Kave in Westward Ho! back in August last year. Both Amy and Mel decided to get ready at the nearby Durrant Hotel, which was great as I could cover them both. I knew from meeting them both for their pre wedding shoot last Springtime, this would be a fun day and I wasn't wrong!

They decided to meet outside the Kave in separate cars just before the ceremony, which was a nice moment and a welcome change to tradition. The weather also played a part, with glorious sunshine all day. Ocean Kave is the perfect venue for a wedding at anytime of the year, but there is really something special about a sun soaked day there that just feels right!

After the wedding breakfast we took a trip down to nearby Westward Ho! beach for a few photos in the late afternoon sunshine and returned back to the Kave just in time for their first dance. As I was leaving I noticed a lovely sunset looming, so I persuaded Amy and Mel to go outside in the Kave grounds for a few final shots. It was a fitting end to a most perfect wedding day.

Louise & Jamie wedding at The Old Barn https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/1/louise-jamie-wedding-at-the-old-barn Louise & Jamie wedding at The Old Barn

 

Louise and Jamie decided to get married at The Old Barn which is a new North Devon wedding venue and is owned by and part of the Milky Way adventure park. It was my first time shooting there and I have to say, what a great little venue!

Although Louise and Jamie currently live in the Warwickshire area, Louise has a local connection to North Devon where she grew up and wanted to get married in the area. The venue also held a connection for Louise as her Grandfather used to drive the train around the theme park back in the 80's! One of the other unique things about the Old Barn is the wedding party get to go and ride on the dodgems for an hour or so once the park closes, which of course Louise and especially Jamie were keen to do.

Louise looked lovely as she arrived in the Conservatory for the ceremony, a quaint, beautifully dressed room full of foliage. The food and reception was in the old converted barn itself as were the speeches.

What a great wedding! Louise, Jamie and their guests were all lovely and really laid back, which made for a nice chilled wedding day. Oh, and lets not forget the dodgems!

Best Wedding photos of 2016 https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2017/1/best-wedding-photos-of-2016 Best wedding photos of 2016

It's now 2017, a brand new year, and I think its as good a time as any for me to look back over the year just gone and all the photos I've taken.

2016 was my busiest year yet for shooting weddings, sometimes I felt like I never stopped shooting! As usual I met and worked with some amazing couples who made my 'job' an interesting and incrediblily rewarding experience.

When looking back over the wedding photos I shot in 2016 and choosing which ones to include in this 'Best of' blog post I decided to split them and have a category section and a few extra shots, which I feel deserved a bit of 'backstory behind the photo'. As usual it was hard to leave out some photos, but I didn't want you to feel like it was a chore looking through a hundred odd photos!

My wedding photography style is very much shooting in a photojournalistic or documentary way and all the moments you see here are completely natural and not at all staged or directed by me in any way (apart from a few bride and groom portrait shots). Some may make you laugh or cry, but hopefully they will tell a story and most importantly capture a special moment for the couple to remember.

So here they are in no particular order....

 

Bridal Preparations

A time for the bride to run the gauntlet of emotions as she prepares to get ready for the ceremony and biggest day of her life. Laughter, excitement, nerves and tears all make an appearance...

Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready Brides getting readyBrides getting ready

 

The story behind the photo

Father seeing bride in the dressFather seeing bride in the dress It's one of the moments I hope for and pay special attention to during the bridal prep. Dad seeing his daughter in her dress for the first time. Here, bride Charlotte's Dad is clearly overcome as he sees his little girl all grown up and ready to get married, perhaps in a way handing over the reigns to her husband to look after her. If I have to choose I think it's best to capture the dad's expression, rather than the bride, as it can be one of those rare moments a grown man openly shows emotion. 

It must be a happy and strangely difficult time for the parents seeing their children getting married and I often wonder if I'll be able to hold back the tears when I see my daughter in this scenario, albeit a few years away!

 

The ceremony

The groom seeing his bride coming down the aisle. I remember this well at my wedding, I was an emotional wreck! The exchange of vows, the relief of getting the ceremony over with. Another melting pot of emotions to capture.

 

The story behind the photos

Okay, I'm cheating a bit here having two photos, but they are from the same wedding and I love them both for different reasons! Jill and Iain's wedding was memorable for a lot of reasons. They were a lovely down to earth couple. The weather for their Westward Ho! wedding was a mixture of gale force winds and horizontal rain. In July. All day. Well, almost all day. As they came out of the church they were delighted to see a break in the weather and the sun even made a very brief appearance, albeit for about five minutes! The look on their faces says it all, especially as Jill wanted all their guests to walk en masse the short distance from the church to the Pier House for the wedding breakfast and was worried about the dismal weather ruining their chances. As we got halfway to the Pier House, the heavens opened again and everyone put a bit more into their step to get there!

Like myself, the groom, Iain, is a big Star Wars fan and as a surprise Jill bought him a larger than life-size stormtrooper who was an integral part of the day. Needless to say, he makes an appearance in quite a few of their wedding photos! Okay, I admit I had my photo taken with the stormtrooper too....

 

Children at weddings

Some of the many things kids get up to at weddings. I love the first one in this set where the parents of the groom are trying to get the couple's son to be quiet whilst his parents are exchanging their vows.

 

The story behind the photo

Sometimes a look can tell all. Eme and Terel's son is giving a reading during the wedding ceremony. Standing up in front of 90 or so people and speaking can be tough for anyone, but he does a great job and some of the words clearly hit home for Eme. If you zoom in closer there is a tear in her eye.

 

Pre Wed shoot photos 

Throughout 2016 I did lots of pre wedding shoots with couples. Some were married this year, some in 2017. Here are a few of my favourites.

The story behind the photo

It must be because I'm a dad myself, but I'm really drawn to this photo. Not just because it's a beautiful moment between a bride and her father, but I think it's due to it being such a rarity at weddings these days. I shot 39 weddings this year and only 3 or 4 had any brides dancing with their fathers. Earlier in the day during the speeches it became clear that bride Keri was extremely close to her father and I was so pleased when they had a father/daughter dance just after her and Tim's first dance. You only need to look at some of the guest's faces to see how much it meant to both of them. A gentle tip for future brides. If possible, try and make the time for a dance with your father and make sure you tell me you are going to have it and I'll make sure I capture the moment. Thank you.

 

First dance

One of my favourite parts of the day. The last formal thing the bride and groom have to do and after that it's time to let your hair down and party a bit!

 

 

Bride and Groom photos and a few others that have no category, category 

Although I am first and foremost a photojournalistic wedding photographer, I always try and make beautiful bride and groom portraits. I especially love to do these at sunset, often with off camera flash set ups. Here are a few followed by a few other photos without a category, although strangely they feature swords!!!!

 

If you made it this far, well done! If you are looking for a wedding photographer for 2017 and beyond please contact me to see if I'm available to capture moments like these.

Helen & Rich wedding at Saunton Sands Hotel https://www.mkcollinsphotography.com/blog/2016/11/helen-rich-wedding-at-saunton-sands-hotel 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.
