On the day of Jacqueline and John’s wedding it was a pretty typical autumn day in the UK but with heavy rain forecast, so I packed my emergency umbrellas and rain coat along with my photography equipment and set off.
I arrived at the Northcote Manor and was pleased to find that it was relatively calm with only a little drizzle on the outside and very warm, cosy and welcoming on the inside.
The fires were lit and the rooms were all set up beautifully.
The Oak Room was set up for the ceremony with the golden chairs dressed with sashes from Just Say Chairs and decorated with blue thistles to match in with the beautiful flowers from Amy’s Flowers of Chagford.
The flowers were in autumnal tones of yellow, orange and cream, interspersed with the thistles and lots of greenery.
There were candles in hurricane lamps flickering on the mantelpiece as the daylight was starting to fade a little.
The venue had also been decorated through out with plenty of lovely personal touches from Lucy, their sister in law.
The harpist Elizabeth Jane Baldry arrived with her impressive harp and started to play some lovely back ground music and a buzz of excitement was going around the hotel as guests started to arrive.
John’s brother Peter was his best man, it was great to take some photographs of them before the ceremony as they laughed and joked, sharing memories of having their photographs taken at Peter’s wedding several years before.
Soon Jacqueline and her daughter’s who were her bridesmaids were all ready too.
They all looked wonderful, their lovely dresses from WED2B in Exeter.
With beautiful hair styling by Quinns of Okehampton and make up from In Bloom Beauty. Jacqueline’s dress was gorgeous with beautiful lace details on the front and back and a very pretty pearl and diamante belt.
The bride had a pretty hand tied bouquet in the autumnal colours and the bridesmaids had charming wrist corsages to match.
The ceremony was so lovely, it was so nice to see Jacqueline and John getting married and being so very happy together.
We managed to get outside afterwards for the confetti and group shots and although it was rather chilly, thankfully the rain stayed away.
I got some lovely portraits of the happy couple and then let them get back inside to warm up and mingle with their guests.
The cheeriness continued in to the evening with lots of jokes and laughter through out the speeches and toasts.
I stayed until they cut their rather splendid cake, which was dressed with flowers made to match in with the bouquet, the cake was made by Nicola’s Cake Kitchen.
Then I left them all to dance the night away to South Devon Soul and Motown singer Mrs Jones (who I heard was very good by all accounts!).
It was a very relaxed and enjoyable day with a lot of smiles and happiness, and great to meet Jacqueline and John friends and family, and play a part in their special day.
