I’m delighted to share the lovely wedding of Nav and Harriet which took place at Wellington Barn Devizes. The day was captured by Demos Soupashis.
Nav and Harriet contacted me to shoot their wedding on 30th July 2015 that was based in Wellington Barn Devizes in Wiltshire, I held their engagment shoot on the 23/5/15 in Hampstead Pergola or the secret garden as it’s known locally. The barn is a luxury venue beautifully designed and spacious enough to hold approximately 200 guests. The staff and management were very accommodating and professional.
The wedding day was a rustic fusion of Asian and an English wedding, beautiful colours yet very British.
The day began the Bride’s home for preparation images. Make-up was by Emma from Savage Beauty based in Devizes and hair preparations by Sam from Kadiem.co.uk. Getting to know the family and Bridesmaids was a pleasure and were very nice and easy going. It wasn’t long before the bridesmaids cracked the champagne open and everyone started to enjoy the day and look forward to the ceremony and the party ahead.
My clients also had the benefit of my 2nd photographer Steve Baker. He went on ahead to Devizes town centre to get to the Peppermill Hotel to shoot the Groom and Groomsman as they were getting ready.
We arrived at the barn ahead of everyone so we could get those all important images of the venue and details of the cake and decorations. The decorations had a rustic look and had a theme of English and Asian culture and blended in very well. The flowers, cake and all the extras looked stunning.
The cake was not actually a cake instead each layer was a different type of cheese.
Dinner for the evening was a very tasty curry prepared by Peter from Vaughan’s Kitchen also based in Devizes.
What i loved about the day was how chilled out Nav and Harriet were, they let the day unfold and were so relaxed and let me pull them aside whenever i asked for the posed images. The barn was in a beautiful location with picturesque surroundings and beautiful light.
My advice for couples is let the day pan out and try not to get to stressed about it, Enjoy your day the best you can because it really is a special day. Trust in the professionals you have hired to do the hard work for you.
“Our special day made that bit more special having Demos with us capturing every moment that only Demos knows how. We would recommend Demos without any hesitation. He has a wonderful photographic style which really captures the essence of the characters he is portraying. Demos came to take photos on the morning of our wedding day and we had such a laugh that he made the morning great fun! He managed to get all the shots he needed whilst still fitting in with what we were doing and the whole process was completely stress free.The photos Demos took are absolutely stunning and capture our perfect day fantastically and so natural…If you book his services you are guaranteed great photographs!'”

I shoot weddings, christenings, fashion, modelling and portraits and have a studio based in Woodford east London, My style is Elegant Journalism, I do not only shoot fly on the wall style images and believe it’s important to capture posed images as well as documentary photography. in my personal opinion you may not have images that you can frame or share if they are only documented images. I also like to encourage my clients to have some group shots so they can remember who was at their big day and relive some of those memories that are very special. I try to get involved and have a good laugh with my clients and their friends and family as the day has to be as special and as fun as possible . My clients can purchase prints, canvasses and many products directly from their personal client area from the website www.DemosPhotography.com that are prosessed and sent directly to them from Loxley Colour labs based right here in the UK.
