Tunnels Beaches Wedding in Devon
We share the wedding of Amy and Lee who got married at the Tunnels Beaches in Devon. Their day was captured by Emma Jane.
About the couple
I met Amy and Lee at a wedding show and I was impressed with their super relaxed attitude and stylish plans for their wedding. Going for a private beach. I carried out their engagement shoot which was super fun and allowed me to see their relationship together and how it would work for the wedding day itself.
A little bit about the day and how it went
I had a wedding in London the day before so it was a super early start to drive down to Ilfracombe to arrive for the getting ready shots, as this was earlier as the couple had the door games and tea ceremony for the Chinese elements of the day. These were so fun to see the challenges that the bridesmaids gave the groom and groomsmen!
They had an outdoor ceremony which had bubbles after they walked back down the isle. The venue- tunnels beaches takes unto 120 guests and has a private beach that the couple utilise for couple shots. With its amazing tidal pool we were able to get some dramatic shots of the bridal party and couple along the tidal pool edge.. they were super brave and up for getting the creative shots we needed. For dinner they have the amazing BBQ that tunnels beaches is known for with each tabled themed around movies and comic books for the guests.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself
I am a fashion inspired wedding photographer based in London. Covering the whole of the UK and destination weddings. I adore creative couples, quirky venues and I love to travel for my work. Originally a Devon wedding photographer it was great to be able to travel back down to Devon for this wedding.
How would you describe your photography style?
I am inspired by my fashion photography clients and compositions to add this into my wedding work. I love to focus on details and emotive aspects of the day. Watching for small smiles and looks between people. As well as the creative compositions of the couple shots really makes my heart sing.
What did you love about the day?
I loved the door games, as they were such fun to see that relationship between everyone, and also make it easier to get connected myself to the bridal party for the rest of the day. Making the shots much smoother as the day went on.
What advice would you give to couples planning their wedding day?
Make sure you pick a photographer you really gel with, you will be spending the whole day with them as well as a lot of lead unto the day and communication afterwards. I often get told I am a very calming influence on the day which is great when weddings can sometimes be quite stressful, so its good to be able to be that calm and orngaised aspect to help the day stay on track.
