Gerard and Emma | Wedding Photography | Cedars Hotel Barnstaple

In September last year I photographed Emma and Gerrard’s wedding.

Preparations began at Charley’s Angels in Paiges Lane, Barnstaple (bizarrely above my old studio) for Emma and her bridesmaids. Here all the girls had their hair and make up done before they headed back to Emma’s Dads to get ready. I then made my way over to the Best Man’s house to capture some preparation shots of Gerrard and the boys, who were all surprisingly calm. 

After seeing the boys I then caught up with Emma and the bridesmaids and we all headed over to the very beautiful St Mary’s church in Pilton, Barnstaple. The ceremony was emotional and all of their family and friends shared the event with them. During the signing of the register some acoustic music was played by local band Head Over Feet also friends of Emma and Gerrard. 

The reception was held at Cedars Inn, Barnstaple and while all the guests travelled to the venue I whisked Emma and Gerrard away to do some photos of just the two of them. They wanted to stay local so we headed down to the River Taw and along the Tarka Trail before proceeding onto the venue. Here we shot a few more photos with family and friends and then everyone sat down for speeches and the wedding breakfast. 

In the Evening lots of guests were up and dancing to music provided by local band Sonic Fusion, who Gerrard used to play bass guitar for. So it was quite fitting when Gerrard got up and played a few songs with the band. A superb evening was had by all.

Hope you enjoy the photos below. 

Feel free to share them with anyone you know who is getting married or maybe looking for a wedding photographer.
