At the beginning of April I packed my camera gear up and headed off to Edinburgh airport to fly down to meet up with my friend and wedding photographer Matt Fryer, who owns and runs Matt Fryer Photography in North Devon, to help him cover two of his weddings over one weekend.
About two years ago I had asked Matt to come up and second shoot Helen and Tom’s wedding in St Andrews and when he asked me if I was able to come down to North Devon to second shoot with him I jumped at the chance to be able to return the favour.
First up on the Saturday it was Chris and Nat’s wedding at St Brannocks Church. It was a pretty strange feeling heading off to a venue I’d never been to before to meet up with a groom whom I’d never met, but when Chris and his grooms men arrived it was plain to see that we’d get on perfectly!
It’s nice to be a second photographer once in a while, I get to take a step back and look at things differently than if I was shooting a wedding on my own. The wedding ceremony was held at St Brannocks Church in Braunton, after the service and a few shots outside the church it was then off to Saunton Sands Hotel for their reception. In the evening I was charged with manning the Beach Hut Photo Booth for Matt, something that always adds a huge amount of fun to any wedding!
A brilliant day, and while the weather was a little colder then wished for at least it did stay dry for us.
Here are a few shots from Chris and Nat’s wedding, to see more just head over to Matt’s website.
As a wedding photographer I’m happy to travel to shoot a wedding anywhere in the world, for weddings further than 50 miles from St Andrews the only additional extra on top of my fee would be my travel and accommodation costs.
