Colehayes park wedding photography

Colehayes park is such a great wedding venue in a beautiful part of the Devon countryside, I always have an amazing time when I am there and it was the perfect venue for Amy and Chris’s wedding. The staff at Colehayes gave the go ahead early in the morning for the wedding ceremony to be held in the back garden next to the old cork tree. In the afternoon guests drank champagne on the lawn, ate canapes and the children played games until it was time for the food, speeches and then…. THE BAND!

Everybody was invited into the back garden where they had set up. They started to play and went on to deliver a 4 hour set with just two breaks in between! What an absolutely amazing band TFIbritpop are, they just played classic tunes all night long! Once they had performed their last song the party moved into the front room at Colehayes and they danced until the early hours of Sunday morning. As always I stayed right until the very end to capture it all! Colehayes park, you never, ever disappoint me and thank you Amy and Chris for such a special weekend.

Here are some of my favourite photographs from the day….

Cole hayes park wedding venue

Colehayes park is a beautiful Grade ll listed Georgian Mansion that sits around 20 acres of countryside on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon. The original structure of the building dates back to 1540 and was owned by Thomas Pinson, this was when Colehayes was mentioned in a burial register as Colhouse. It stayed very much the same until William Adair purchased it in 1825 where he remodelled, reconstructed and extended it, also building stables, a laundry room, carriage house and a reservoir in Alder Wood. The house is now owned by Rebecca and Bill Brooks and has 21 bedrooms plus an additional building at the back named Cork Tree cottage. In 2008 Colehayes park was front page news after the Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong gave a ‘shout-out’ live on air about a party that had been arranged by the owners daughter Sarah Ruscoe at Colehayes park. Police dogs were needed to disperse the crowd of around 2,000 revelers who spent most of the evening vandalising the property.

Cole hayes park wedding photographer

I am guessing you have landed on this page because you are getting married in Devon and are looking for a Colehayes park wedding photographer. My name is Warren, I am a well established Somerset wedding photographer and I have been photographing weddings all over the UK for the last ten years. Most of my weddings are across the South West of England but I have photographed weddings in France, Tunisia and as far afield as Australia and the United States, I love to travel so I will go anywhere if the date is free!

I will arrive at your wedding venue the day before your wedding day to make sure I am there and ready to go early in the morning because I want to capture your day from the beginning right until the very end. As your wedding photographer I will work to creatively capture your wedding from the minute you start to get ready, up until the last song. I want to timelessly document the emotion and present you with a beautiful collection of wedding photographs.

You will put so much time into organising your wedding, you need a photographer that will work just as hard to capture all the moments that matter. As you can see from my portfolio I observe what is happening and document it using natural light where possible to create beautiful,emotive photographs. We can arrange a time for portraits in the evening but apart from that I just capture the wedding exactly how it happens. It does not matter how big or small your wedding will be or where it is,  I would love to be there. If you love my style, my portfolio and you feel a connection with my work then please get in contact using the details below.

 Thank you for your time.
