Huntsham Court Wedding
Michelle & Paul | A Huntsham Court Wedding
I’m always of the belief that New Year’s Eve is always a bit overrated as a celebration……well not in this case it wasn’t!
Michelle & Paul got married at Huntsham Court in Devon. Far from being some sort of ‘wedding factory’, Huntsham Court is a magnificent privately owner country house that conveniently happens to have a wedding licence. I’d never photographed a wedding here before but always relish the chance to explore new venues and this one really has to be up there with some of my favourites.
I love weddings where the celebration of family and friendship sits firmly at the heart of the day and nowhere was that more true than on this day. I also love the chaos and spontaneity that young children can bring to proceedings. They help cut through any stuffiness and perhaps reminds us of what the day is truly about. I know everyone on the day would agree that having Michelle & Paul’s children there added immeasurably to the sense of occasion and in many respects embodied exactly what everyone was there to celebrate; Michelle and Paul’s love for each other, love for their family and love for their friends. What a beautiful way to see out the old year and welcome in the new one, this will be one New Year’s Eve I will genuinely remember for a long time (and not just because I wasn’t drinking!).
Speaking of spontaneity, just as I was starting to pack up my things and was looking for Michelle & Paul to thank and say goodbye to, Paul was nowhere to be seen. On further investigation it was discovered that Paul had retired to one of the bedrooms with the band….and his best man!!!!! (perhaps I should rephrase that but I think it should all become clear)…….to rehearse a couple of songs which he planned to perform. So I hung around for a bit because I wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to photograph the groom in full crooning mode. And boy am I glad I stayed! Paul was terrific, an absolute natural and I love the photographs I got of him singing with the band at the end.
That just leaves me to say a massive congratulation to Michelle and Paul. Here is the story of their day:
