It had been a few years since I’d been at Hallsannery in Bideford– the last time was when I helped out a colleague, second shooting for Sophie & Andy's wedding and I had loved it! And here I was back to capture Anna & Phil’s wedding. Hallsannery is one of my favourite venues in North Devon, I'd love to shoot there more. The staff are lovely and they always look after me well. Beautiful large rooms with beautiful light and high ceilings for the ‘getting ready’ phase of the day. This happy pair chose to get married outside the large entrance of the house with columns and flowers as their backdrop.
One of my favourite moments from the wedding day was when Phil forgot his personalised vows and after Anna had said hers just stood there with looking a dazed and confused as he reached into his coat pocket, his best man promptly stood up and ran into the house to retrieve, coming back to cheers and hoots of laughter coming from the assembled crowd.
Beautiful people, beautiful venue, beautiful light, beautiful emotions. Congratulations Anna & Phil and thanks for having me there.
