The big day started with bridal prep in Topsham and a happy happy ceremony in St Margaret's Church. The bride arrived at church in an old classic car lent by a Topsham family friend which only just made it through the narrow streets! The crowds had gathered to watch her go in. After confetti, the couple had a few photos at the river and in the old-fashioned streets and then were driven a few miles down the road to Courtway Meadows near Clyst St Mary where an amazing marquee had been erected and decorated. The decorations were amazing (blog to follow), all put together by family and friends. The meal and speeches followed, and then for the live music by the groom's own band. After the manic fan scenes, led by the bride!, I coaxed them out at sunset for their couple photos in the golden meadow with a spare bottle of Pebblebed fizz! Such a beautiful wedding, even more special for me to photograph. as they were family friends and I had known the groom since he was 7!
