Glamour Wedding at Devon's Rockbeare Manor

Updated: Apr 13, 2023

The day started with the girls in the beautiful Drawing Room at Rockbeare Manor having their hair styled by @NatalieNicholsBridal ( and make-up applied by @SophieWhiteMUA, while the boys arrived by helicopter! landing in the fields to the side of the Manor House. The boys then quickly donned their black tie in the Billiards Room and went outside for more James Bond-like photos with the helicopter. The ceremony took place in the Ballroom and because it was February and a bit wet and windy, we did the confetti walk straight after the ceremony. We did manage to grab a short dry spell to do beautiful group photos in front of the house, including the dogs who were being looked after at the venue. We did a few couple photos along with the videographer @BenRadleyWeddingFilms (, combining the bride and groom's gorgeousness! with the beauty of the Rockbeare surroundings. While we had been photographing, the amazing Rockbeare staff had cleared the Ballroom and set out the wedding breakfast tables. The guests sat down to a tasty meal and the parents and men made their speeches. In between the speeches and first dance, I snatched the couple away for a few intimate photos in the Drawing Room and on the staircase using flash for that Hollywood glamour look. Flowers were by @daisyleeltd ( and the bride's dress was by @TheBridalMill_Botley ( and @allurebridals ( The band which everyone went crazy for was @renegadesofrockband.
