Dartington Hall, Totnes

Isabelle and Chris’s wedding at Dartington Hall, Totnes was a wet and windy one which was a shame as they were hoping to have drinks in the extensive gardens to the back of the grand building.

When I first met Isabelle and Chris there was an instant connection between us which I always think works well towards building a good working relationship before the actual wedding, the pre wedding shoot was great, they were both fantastic in front of the camera and we got some great shots that they then went on to use as a way for guests to leave messages around a photo on the wedding day.

Dartington hall was all set and ready to deal with the wet wedding, a stunning location whatever the weather, I remember doing the first licensed wedding here and I am happy to say that it hasn’t changed at all.

This was an April wedding so as the day was getting closer I was in the final stages of my pregnancy, Isabelle and myself made an emergency back up plan if the worst should happen but I had in my head that I would run late so all should be fine. Well as it turned out I was early and gave birth to my daughter 3 days before Isabelle and Chris’s wedding! I had a natural birth and came straight out of hospital so was determined to make it to the wedding, so I packed up my kit and brought a team of back up photographers but made it to the wedding!! I actually had a great day shooting and was so happy to be there for them , even enjoyed my first glass of bubbles with them.
