Elopement in Devon at Reed Hall, Exeter- Yuanyan & Zhi
I absolutely love photographing elopements and small intimate weddings and this one was really special. George (Zhi) got in touch with me after seeing some of my couple portraits on my website. He and Vicky (Yuanyan) are set to marry in China later this month near his hometown in the South. They both really wanted to capture some of the celebrations and beautiful scenery here in Exeter and Devon before, where he has been attending Exeter University.
I suggested Reed Hall as a great location as I’ve shot weddings there before and I’m very happy to be a recommended photographer for the venue, which is situated on the University’s campus. Mainly though I knew of its beautiful gardens that look absolutely stunning at this time of year and we were so lucky to have a wonderful sunny day in May.
George also wanted to capture something of Exeter itself so I suggested we popped down to Exeter Cathedral for a few photographs there with the aim of trying to avoid some of the crowds, meaning me getting down low.
I really hope you enjoy a few photographs below from the couple of hours I spent with this lovely sweet couple. It was a real privilege and I just loved the variety of the gardens, especially those amazing trees…
Vicky wanted some professional make-up for the occasion so I suggested we get Eve involved who is a great make-up artist who I know well and have worked with numerous times before.
Here is her website- Eve Ashby Makeup Artist
