It was fantastic to visit Escot House in East Devon for Lorna & Owen’s beautiful wedding celebrations. I am very lucky as a Devon wedding photographer to visit many beautiful stately homes in around the county of Devon. There are so many wedding venues in Devon that it must prove to be a daunting task for couple. I have complied a list of some of the most popular venues here in Devon and included seating capacity and accommodation availability, I hope you find it useful. Please follow: Devon wedding venues to view the resource.
I met up with Lorna & Owen last year for the couples pre-wedding shoot at the lovely coastal town of Sidmouth in Devon. We had a great time with the couple really relaxing into the pre-shoot. To view their pre- shoot please follow: Sidmouth pre-wedding shoot
Getting married at Escot House
On the wedding day we met up with Lorna at her parents home in Honiton for some getting ready shots before moving on to the lovely St Paul’s church in Honiton’s town centre. The church was packed with family & friends who had come from far and wide to celebrate their wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and absolutely jammed full with guests. The windy weather was a little against us on the day and all the ladies had to hold on to their hats but it enabled me to get some great shots too. As we left the church there was a noisy surprise for the newly weds from the town crier to announce the marriage to the residents of Honiton in Devon, a surprise organised by Lorna’s dad.
Escot House wedding venue
After the service we headed to Escot House for the rest of the celebrations. Escot House is a beautiful Georgian House situated in parkland, the drive in is really beautiful. Although it rained a little we still managed to get outside to do some group shots and later a few couple portraits. The wedding breakfast was held in the marquee attached to the side of the house with the guests packed in well. A little later once the speeches were over the dancing began. The first dance was lovely, Lorna & Owen had prepared well! Great to see all the guest get onto the dance-floor for a boogie.
It was a lot of fun and we had a great time photographing your lovely wedding. Thank you for the food, it was very much appreciated. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the day. Talk to you soon.
All the best Anthony & James
Devon is a beautiful county that offers lots of types of wedding venues for all tastes. If you are looking for something a little different why not take a look at something a little rustic. Upton Barn is one such venue please check it out: Upton Barn Wedding
