One of the benefits of being a wedding photographer in Devon is that you get to discover all these tucked away venues . Places just a little off the beaten path. The first time I went to the Fox and Hounds in Eggesford to meet Sarah and Mark I got completely lost and drove around for half an hour in ever decreasing circles until I eventually found the place tucked away down its own little drive but with a signboard outside, big as you like that I must have driven past several times without noticing.
Months later, Sarah and Mark’s day finally came around and I found myself back at the Fox and Hounds on a lovely day in mid July. I arrived at ten am. Sarah, her bridesmaids and flower girls were just beginning to get ready. Sarah’s room at the Fox and Hounds overlooked the front of the hotel – a perfect place to keep watch for Mark’s arrival a little later in a particularly colourful shirt which matched both the weather and the mood of the day. Sarah And Mark had struggled to find a photographer they liked, I recall them telling me at our initial meeting that they had looked at many websites but not seen anything that they felt comfortable with. They didnt want the big posed family groups but something more intimate, and relaxed. Something which would document the day as it happened, and record their friends and families part in that day. Something perfectly suited to the documentary wedding photography approach.
The whole day went through without a hitch and Sarah, Mark and their friends were a pleasure to spend the day with. Here’s a handful or three of pictures from the day.
