Today I am thrilled to share an intimate Wedding in Devon with an earthy Boho theme.
Leanne and Sam were married at the beautiful Ever After in a lovely gathering of a few family and friends.
Images were captured by Liberty Pearl Photography.

She has have been a photographer for 16 years and a wedding and portrait photographer for 7 years.
She loves being creative, and after starting her career in music and event photography she found weddings and portraiture to be an exciting new challenge.
Her reportage style of photography is very natural, unobtrusive, and relaxed therefore capturing the special and spontaneous natural moments, to tell the perfect story and convey the happiness and ambience of the day.
Amber says of the couples day…
We’re huge fans of nature and the outdoors, so we were delighted to be able to capture Leanne and Sam’s elopement last October.
Held at the incredibly special Ever After wedding venue in Dartmoor, we were able to go deep into the woods to find ruins covered with moss, a beautiful tunnel of trees and a waterfall.
With a stunning colour palette of pinks, purples and peaches, their wedding ceremony was one that simply took our breath away.
Leanne wore a stunning ivory chiffon dress with gorgeous shoulder and back detail which was perfect for the relaxed look she wanted and worked beautifully with her flowers, which complimented the theme with that all-important pop of colour.
Rustic and natural were the order for the day – and the wild foliage finished the bouquet off perfectly – enhancing the theme and of course Leanne’s amazing flower crown.
But for us, the highlight was the woodland walk that we were able to take them both on, making the most of the incredible grounds.
I hand over to the gorgeous Bride, Leanne…
How did you meet?
We met about 11 years ago when I, Leanne, added Sam on MySpace cause I thought he was cute.
There were pictures of him in the same club that I used to go to so I knew we would at least have music in common.
Then it took about a year before we spoke in person at said club and we hit it off.
Tell us about the Engagement…
We never had an ‘engagement’ as such, there was no bending down on one knee and proposing.
We both hated the idea of a huge wedding and one day we were sat on the sofa and we both said we knew we were going to be together forever and why don’t we just go and get married.
So we decided eloping would be the way forward.
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
I planned the whole wedding in 3 months.
Well actually, the venue that I was going to hold my elopement wedding at did all of the major organising and it was pretty much stress free.
Since we told no one about our elopement there were no engagement parties or visits to bridal shops with bridesmaids.
There wasn’t actually a lot of planning which was perfect.
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
I wanted a very earthy and boho theme. Flower crowns, lots of greens and pale dusky pinks.
I am not into sparkles so I wanted it to be more simplistic than glitzy and I think the back drop of where I was getting married was suited to this theme.
What was the best bit of your day?
The no fuss. There were no speeches, no first dances, we almost forgot to cut the cake.
I didn’t have to worry about bridesmaids and getting favours for the 60 guests.
It was just my new husband, our daughter, our parents and siblings. Just 10 of us. It was so nice to be able to spend actual time with our wedding guests and make fantastic memories.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Don’t spend your entire engagement thinking about how to make your wedding amazing for your guests, it’s about making the day amazing for you.
It is all down to personal taste so do something that reflects you as a couple.
