Leah and Matt’s wedding at the Tree Top Escape in Devon was just perfect. I have been so excited to capture a wedding at the Tree Top Escape and it is every bit as fabulous as I hoped it would be. Venue owners Bob and Kate were inspired to build a tree house after visiting many themselves for family holidays. They realised that the undulating estate of Millbrook would be perfect to build their very own Tree Top hideaway overlooking the land and giving panoramic views of Devon countryside.
Before I start any wedding at the Tree Top Escape I like to arrive early and take a few location photographs. I am very chuffed to be one of the Tree Top Escape’s recommended suppliers and having photographed at Millbrook Estate for over 4 years now feel a strong affection for the place. I love watching the landscape change through the seasons and noticing changes in the planting by the excellent gardeners who care for the estate. Leah and Matt were blessed with sunshine so I knew we would be able to have the ceremony outdoors on the balcony of the nest which would give them uninterrupted views. A small wedding party, Leah and Matt wanted to keep the day intimate with immediate family and their two children. Both little people loved the views from the nest and kept pointing down at the alpacas who were hanging out by the lake below.
Leah looked beautiful, I loved her two-piece dress by an Australian designer, so bohemian and perfect for the setting. I also loved her flower crown, I am a bit obsessed with flower crowns as they really add something extra to photos so gave an excited squeal when I saw it perched in the box. Leah’s lovely flower crown was by another recommended suppler, Melissa Baker, who owns Honeybee Floral Art. After the champagne and canapés the guests and children left for the wedding meal with Leah and Matt to follow a little later. This gave us a chance to take a leisurely walk about the estate and around my favourite lake for some couple photos. I particularly love this time with the couple, a chance to get some natural photos of them together and also incorporate the stunning surroundings. Below are my favourite images from the day. Leah and Matt thank you so much for booking me to capture your day! I wish you every happiness in your future together.
