Huntsham Court Devon

As a wedding photographer in Devon for 27 years I have worked at some of the most beautiful wedding venues in the South West, so I am going to share an insight into some of my favourites.

I first photographed at the stunning Baronial Mansion Huntsham Court in 2012 when I was hired to photograph the wedding of a professional T.V cameraman. Always a compliment to be hired by  fellow creative. Since then I have photographed in excess of 15/20 weddings at Huntsham Court & each and every one has been unique, personal and wonderful!
From Spring weddings outdoors under the arbor (for a musician and being a fan of Jake Bugg it was great to meet & photograph him at this wedding) to winter weddings in the Great Hall, very cozy with the fire roaring. A fair amount of the weddings I have photographed at Huntsham have been three day events. An evening meal for close family & friends on arrival day, the full day of festivities on the wedding day itself and then fun and games on the lawn as a perfect wind down before heading home. I have worked with a lot of Devon’s best suppliers at Huntsham, Dartmoor Kitchens, Posh Nosh, Pumpkin and Pye, Eve Ashby make-up and Devon Wedding Hair  Changing Faces 
Some of the outstanding and memorable weddings I have photographed at Huntsham have included peaceful humanist ceremonies on the lawn in the warm summer sunshine complete with bird song. In contrast lively evening parties with some amazing bands, my favourite wedding band of all time I have seen three times at Huntsham, The Iron Boot Scrapers. Huntsham Court really does tick every box with accommodation for 82 people, wedding breakfasts for 120 guests seated in one space. No corkage, event planners. Huntsham Court is one of Devon’s biggest yet most intimate wedding venues.

Welcome to the Evolve Blog

So this is the home of my new blog. So whats it all about?

I have been in the Wedding industry for 21 years now as a wedding photographer, currently owning and running Evolve Photography in Devon. I have photographed over 1200 Weddings now from the beautiful Peak District down to stunning St Ives. I have worked with many suppliers and at many venues and have seen a lot of behind the scenes stuff! I have also learned a lot about all aspects of Weddings along the way. As many of my lovely couples will no doubt bare testimony to I have helped and advised on many aspects of their big day aside from the photography. Many a Bride has walked down the aisle with flowers that she nearly left at home, many a best man has had his cuff label cut from his suit! I love my job, I love weddings. The change in trends, even the change in seasons.

So here, enough rubbish from me. On this blog I aim to give an insiders view. Post my favourite venues, florists, cake makers etc etc and ask them to guest blog from time to time….I hope you enjoy, or find something useful in the following weeks and months.

Thanks for reading thus far, hope to capture some of you for regular postings.
