Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Mr and Mrs Chadwick. Ben Chadwick a Policeman from Exeter, married farmers daughter Glenda Down a Minister from Teignmouth.

I had known Glenda for years and then I first met Ben in January 2013 when I was introduced to him by someone from their local church. It went something along the lines of ‘This is Ben, Glenda’s new boyfriend’ Ben shyly looked as me as it wasn’t yet out in the open, with family still not knowing about the two of them, I was soon told to keep it quiet for a few days. But I didn’t have to keep it quiet for long as love soon blossomed between them both and not long after they were then engaged. Then one year and one month after meeting Ben I watched and captured that same man who had introduced us both, marrying the two of them in Teignmouth Baptist Church.

After a beautiful service with 300 guests and a live band, the bridal party and I all went to Teignmouth Back Beach for photos. (Considering its February the weather was perfect!)

We then went on to the reception held at Stokeinteignhead village hall, with a great live band, that was followed on by fish and chips by a local supplier.

I had a truly lovely day celebrating with them. A beautiful first wedding for 2014.
