Clare and Sam were already married in Santander, Northern Spain, a few weeks ago, where they had a small celebration at Clare's father's house. They also wanted to have a celebration with their english friends and family in the UK, so they decided to have a ceremony in Exeter Castle and a casual reception in Double Locks Pub on the outskirts of Exeter. They were blessed with great weather, which was surprising after the long spell of showers we had already here in the Southwest recently, it was certainly a nicer day in between the rain storms! The decorations were all DIY and everything else was held in a real casual and relaxed style, just the kind of day I enjoy capturing.. no set formula, just everyone enjoying themselves with lots of laughter, drinks and dancing..
The DJ set sounded promising and the party started straight after the first dance, I even caught myself tapping my feet to the beats.. I guess I would have stayed if I wouldn't have had to drive 1,5 hours to get home..
What a beautiful day and lovely couple to work with! Here are some of my favourites..
