Lundy Island wedding photography
2013 was SUCH a good year, wasn’t it? I was lucky enough to round off mine doing Lundy Island wedding photography for Rebecca and Richard.
It’s a tricky thing to put this experience in to words, so it’s a good thing I have photographs.
But I’ll start off by saying that Lundy Island is a special place for both Rebecca and Richard. They shared their first holiday here, and after being myself I can completely understand why they found it such an incredible place to return. If you don’t know much about it, I’ll set the scene. A small island off the coast of Devon. Many people don’t even realise it exists. Due to the time of year we had to make a helicopter ride to the island. We spent the weekend on Lundy Island, returning back to the ‘mainland’ on Monday.
My first Lundy Island wedding
This was my first time to Lundy Island. My first helicopter ride. And my first time away documenting a whole weekend of wedding antics. It was definitely one of the funnest, most special weddings I’ve had the pleasure of attending and an experience I don’t think I’ll ever forget. The people made the wedding great like all weddings.
For a wedding in December we had pretty impeccable great weather. As you’ll see there were blue skies, big fluffy white clouds and a gorgeous sunset. I have so many great memories from the weekend and going through the photos for the blog bought back so much. From the emotion of the ceremony at Hartland Abbey, to the photographs around the lighthouse where the bouquet was dropped down the middle (whoops!) And then returning home on Monday and celebrating how well everything had gone. As many of you will know, planing a wedding is no easy job. So when it hinges on travelling to another Island it goes in to a whole new world of spreadsheet planning.
A little shout out to Catherine at Blades Bridal and the girls from Colorseum for helping the bridal party get ready o quickly at 7am. The hair clips were made by Beth Morgan and the flowers by Blooms of Bideford. A shout out to the folks at Cad and the Dandy for the guys suits and the Lego themed cake (yay!) that was made by Rosanne Hollowed
And a massive massive massive thank you to Rebecca and Richard and all their family and friends (especially the party house! You know who you are 😉 ) Can we have a Lundy 2014 reunion? I think it should happen.
Here are ‘a few’ of my favourite memories…
