Wedding Photography at Clyst Hydon, Cullompton, Devon

Deep in the countryside is a lovely little village called Clyst Hydon. In the village is a beautiful church called St Andrews. This was the location for the wedding of Jason and Amelia on the 1st May 2021.

Let’s jump straight into a few photos from the day…

It was SO good to be back photographing weddings again, now that lockdown rules are finally easing. This has been a long year and I’ve missed all those smiling faces SO MUCH!

First Tip!
I’m fortunate that I had a second photographer with me. The church has two entrances on opposite sides to each other. Less than half the guests went past me at the main entrance (where the Bride would be arriving, so where I was waiting). The rest of the guests arrived at the church from the rear entrance. Had I been alone, a number of guests would not have been photographed arriving. If you’re thinking of getting married here and candids are important to you, please mention this to the wedding photographer!

The Time of the ceremony was actually perfect. There had been storms and heavy showers the day before. On the morning of their wedding, I had hailstones at home. As we all arrived the sun made appearances through the clouds and no one was soaked for this part of the day. The sun beaming through a small window inside of the Church of St Andrews in the heart of Clyst Hydon gave one of my shots that real magical light.

The Reverend was Marc Kerslake. If you’re ever fortunate enough to work with him, you’ll be in very safe hands! I have not yet met a nicer, more friendly and more helpful Reverend. Thank you for making it so easy and simple for the wedding photographers!

The catering was provided by Ark Events Catering, using their own livestock for the food. It was AMAZING!!
