Kat & James got married at Pickwell Manor, Devon

March 15th, 2012

Here we go...
You'll remember Kat and James from a blog post a few weeks back, they're the ones with the beachy engagement shoot.
Well, a few weeks later they got married at Pickwell Manor in Devon.

Pickwell is a breath taking venue full of carefully renovated rooms and gardens in amongst beautiful Devonshire countryside, just minutes from the beach and is run by two families. I don't think I can sell it better than that to be honest!
I mostly dealt with Susannah who was a fantastic wedding coordinator. I had met up with her previously and it was obvious that she could keep James and Kat's wedding running smoothly.

James wanted me to join him and the boys in the sea in the morning for some pre-wedding surfing shots. Well, that didn't happen due to a serious lack of waves, but at least I managed to have more time to tell some stories with pictures back on land.
Kat and James were fortunate to have a break in the weather. The days prior to their wedding, The south west experienced torrential rain and with an outdoor ceremony planned in England, they were really taking a big risk. As you'll see by the pictures, their attitude paid off and they enjoyed a fantastic day with their closest family and friends!

Enjoy the pictures, as usual I hope you feel part of the day. that's always my intention.
Look out for the goosebumps!
