I first heard about Higher Holcombe through a post that popped up on my Facebook feed. It was a lovely little post that carried a couple of photos and a bit of information regarding converting an old dairy into a beautiful barn, that would one day become a wedding venue. Tucked away in the most rural part of Ottery St Mary, it all looked very exciting, and oodles of potential to become an incredible venue.
So fast forward about six months, and out the blue an e-mail popped into my inbox from Joanna, one of the owners at Higher Holcombe saying she loved my work and would love me to take some photos of her new venue. I was absolutely delighted with the invitation and jumped at the opportunity. And suggested the best way to showcase the new venue would be a styled wedding shoot, that showcased what was on offer and the enormous potential of the venue.
Set in a secluded area in the glorious Devonshire countryside, with a pretty meadow and a maturing woodland, the beautiful renovated barn is the perfect venue for that Boho Bride and Groom to host the wedding of their dreams.
The shoot set in the Barn and the Grounds encompassed a stunning table setting with ratten place mats, crisp white plates, crystal glasses, dusky pink napkins and stunning runner of blush pink flowers and green foliage with pheasant feathers. The stationery suite was hand illustrated and picked up on the dusky pink in the delicate watercolour flowers. We also featured a beautiful copper ceremony arch which was decorated with flowers. Another copper arch featured a linen table plan. The Bride and Groom wore modern but whimsical outfits to complete the Boho feel.
