Muddifords Court County House near Cullompton, Devon is one of my favorite Do-It-Yourself wedding venues as you get the whole house and all the lovely gardens for the whole weekend… plus it is so laid back it makes everyone feel like they have escaped! Becky and Andrew decided to get married there in The Cider Barn followed by a BBQ dinner and Hog roast. This super smiley couple and there gorgeous daughter are just so happy together. I was asked to come along for a couple of hours to take some photos of the ceremony and there friends and family.
I am always really flexible as I think it’s your wedding day so have it your way, but as I am often with a couple for most of the day this wedding was a bit of a different way to work, as I had to work much, much faster which made the photos taking process take up more time after the ceremony. Usually I take couple shots for 15 minutes then candid shots of the guests then some more couple shots through out the day, as I feel it allows the bride and groom to socialize as well has have a number of relaxed informal photographs. I had a great time at Becky and Andrew’s wedding, there was a great sense of family, shared love and lots of laughs. Of course it rained and rained but who cares really when you have such warmth created by a whole new family? Congratulations Mr and Mrs Parker.
