Leo & Max’s wedding was one of my first weddings of 2021. We were still under pandemic restrictions at the time and masks and social distancing had to be adhered to. There were also restrictions on how many guests could attend the wedding. I thought the reduction in guests would make the job a little different but actually everyone was having such a great time giving me plenty to focus on. I think the marvellous Devon weather really played a big part in the success of the day. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.
The couples wedding took place towards the end of June in the couple’s local church in Morebath, mid-Devon. The church is pretty much opposite the couples home so they didn’t have too far to go! As always, the ceremony was lovely and although the guests were wearing masks there were plenty of emotional exchanges with the eyes! The eyes have it!
Wedding at Loyton Lodge
After the ceremony and while Leo & Max took me off to some of their favourite places, the guests along with my second photographer for the day Julia, headed to Loyton Lodge. It was great to be working with Julia again. She helped me capture Leo & Max’s good friends Harry & Kirsten’s wedding back before all the madness of Covid began.
Loyton Lodge is a beautiful wedding venue and one I love to visit. I have been lucky enough to capture a few weddings there over the years. The venue has some beautiful open ground which we took advantage of a little later when we were treated to a fabulous sunset.
There are various locations within Loyton where you can hold your celebrations but the marquee is pretty special. As the weather was so glorious the sides of the marquee were up, giving that extra layer of atmosphere. It was a great day! A little later when the band got going and the first dance was done, it was fantastic to see all the dancing. The restrictions and lockdowns had taken all that away from us. It was so nice to see a little normality return.
Enjoy the pics!
Cheers Anthony & Julia
