Yurt Camp Wedding Photography

Natalie and Ed came to me to photograph their wedding at the Yurt camp in Liverton, having never been here before I was keen to shoot at such a new location. We met for the pre wedding shoot at Parke in Bovey Tracey, Devon where we had a lovely walk and shoot, they were both very comfortable in front of the camera and we got some lovely natural shots of them in the woodlands. It is always lovely to use the great outdoors as part of my shoots, we are lucky to live in such a beautiful place, Devon is full of little hidden gems, great for all kinds of shoots.
After our shoot we went for a coffee and I was delighted to hear that they were surprised that it was so easy! I always recommend the pre wedding shoot as I think it really helps people relax in front of the camera on the actual wedding day.
The morning of her wedding I met Natalie at the hair dressers where she was being pampered by the girls at Gerswins, Natalie looked stunning as she left to battle the great British weather, rain again, but luckily she was well prepared with Brollies to protect her. As we arrived at the church the rain had not let up at all so it was a mad dash for the protection of the linch gate while she met the vicar for her final prep before the ceremony, Ed waiting anxiously inside for his bride to arrive. We managed to get some beautiful shots inside the church and in the grounds after, despite the rain. I actually like the light that you get in the rain, we got some lovely shots using natural light in the church doorways and under the gate roof.
Natalie and Ed made their way back to the Yurt camp in a trio of classic cars owned by family members (lucky devils) The Yurt camp was beautifully decorated with wild flowers and hay bales giving an English summer party feel…although still raining. Rain did not stop play today, Natalie had thought ahead and ordered cover for the open areas for her guests and it really didn’t make any difference to the feel of the day, we had some great fun with the group shots and even got to play some garden games before food was served and they danced the night away. I never thougt that a Yurt camp would be the perfect wedding location but Natalie and Ed’s wedding has shown me a different style of wedding, thank you guys xx
