Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful same sex Autumnal Wedding in Devon.
Gareth & Sam’s wedding was a wonderful celebration of love with beautiful seasonal styling planned to perfection.
The couples venue Holne Park House is an elegantly styled historic home set amidst 90 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens overlooking the River Dart and the perfect setting for their Big Day.

Will says of the day…
Gareth and Sams ceremony was a joyous and intimate occasion enjoyed by all of the guests, and the love from their family and friends filled the room.
There was plenty of laughter and smiles throughout the ceremony and some beautiful readings were made by close friends and family.
After the ceremony, the guests joined Gareth & Sam in the gardens to enjoy drinks and canapes.
We were blessed with good weather, it was great that everyone could be outside to relax and mingle in the gardens..
We spent time before the wedding breakfast capturing some formal group shots; then whilst guests were finding their seats for the wedding breakfast, we made the most of the stunning scenery in the grounds to photograph some beautiful couples portraits.
This is a a great opportunity for couples just to have some moments to themselves, relax and breathe in the enormity of the commitment they have just made
Holne Park House weddings are amazing because not only is the house dramatic but the grounds are beautiful all year round.
We made the most of the rich autumnal colours and captured some great photos of the two of them together.
The venue styling was gorgeous with great attention to detail.
There was stunning flowers all around by Hollyhock Florist and lots of other stunning touches – the suitcase for cards and presents, the pallet timetable and many other pretty autumnal decorations.
After the wedding breakfast they moved on to speeches, both Gareth & Sam gave a speech along with their bestman and bestwoman.
Photographing speeches is one of my favourite times of the day, as it’s not just about the person giving the speech but capturing the great reactions from the guests
The evening reception was relaxed and fun and had an awesome party vibe to it.
The lively guests were up and dancing straight after the first dance with the help of the band for the evening, Cherrybomb creating a great atmosphere.
Thank you so much to Will for sharing this gorgeous Autumnal Wedding.
From the gorgeous colourful florals to the simple but elegant cake and handcrafted wooden decor the relaxed, rustic and seasonal air of the day is evident in the styling and its just lovely..
