I'm still cooling down after Saturday's seriously hot wedding. The weather, the venue, the dapper guys, glam girls... what a wedding!
I'd been looking forward to Charlie and Alex's big day since they got in touch back in 2016. Their venue: Ocean Kave in Westward Ho! North Devon, overlooks miles of stunning coastline, with views across the Atlantic Ocean to Lundy Island and beyond.
The wedding party and guests enjoyed Ocean Kave's luxury onsite accommodation for the weekend and with the amazing weather, everyone was excited and ready to party.
The ceremony took place inside a unique, romantic and secluded cave, nestled within 60 acres of beautiful private grounds and rolling hills. Fashionably late, Charlie wowed Alex and guests in her stunning bespoke dress and the apparent ‘hard to crack’ Bride shed a tear during their ceremony. From the dark intimate ceremony of the cave, out into the bright glorious sunshine, guests mingled with a Pimms in hand, soaking up the rays and taking in the venues gorgeous surroundings.
With temperatures above 30 degrees and not a cloud in the sky, the kids entertained family and friends with a water fight and then ice cream on the lawn before speeches. The sun continued to shine through the reception suite windows, lighting up laughing faces during the speeches and a hilarious life-size cut out of Alex partied with guests into the evening. An epic day, and what better way to end the day than with a stunning sunset over the ocean.
Possibly my hottest wedding to date, thanks to my wonderful assistant Stacey for all her hard work and for mopping my brow throughout the day.
Charlie and Alex - it was an absolute pleasure to photograph your big day, and I wish you both the very best of luck for your happily married future together! xx
