Real Weddings | Donna & Harry
I was contacted by Donna and Harry in early April, having been recommended by The Wedding Planner School. With a mutual love of the outdoors, the couple had already booked their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Tracy Estate & Parklands in Honiton, however being largely a dry-hire venue, were looking for additional support planning and coordinating their festival style wedding, complete with camping in the grounds afterwards with their guests.
The wedding was scheduled for the last weekend in August, but after a long Summer of gorgeous weather (one of the hottest on record!), in true British fashion the weather took a turn for the worse that very morning. Luckily the bridal party and guests were in all jubilant spirits and it was clear no amount of rain would put a dampener on the festivities!
I was fortunate to have the help of an fantastic assistant Adele Thompson on the day, who lives fairly close to the area and was able to help out with last-minute logistics - considering the challenging conditions her help was invaluable! All photography was captured beautifully by Samantha Garrett at Kin Photography, who despite the weather managed obtain some incredibly creative rain shots (that umbrella image really is one of my all time favourites!)
Thank you to all suppliers involved creating this unforgettable wedding, it was a total joy to work with you all.
"Just a little thank you for all of the hard work, time and effort you put into our wedding day, and for making everything come together so smoothly! It was lovely working with you and you made our wedding planning so much easier!"
