I can’t tell you how excited I was to be able to photograph this Beautiful Bicton Park wedding. The gorgeous couple is having two weddings. A traditional wedding in Nepal where the bride grew up and this beautiful English wedding in rural Devon where Ollie grew up. With a ceremony at at Syon House and photos afterwards at Bicton Park.
Getting Ready With The Girls
The Bride and Bridesmaids got ready together at Syon House. DK Hairdressing did their gorgeous hair styles and the girls did their own make-up.
The bride chose her own flowers for her Bouquet. And her amazing bridesmaids created the vibrant bouquet from them. The bridesmaids wore red dresses to compliment the tropical theme.
The morning was full of laughter and frivolity as the bride and Bridesmaids shared jokes and champagne. Before they helped the bride slip into her beautiful fitted lace dress.
A First Look
The bride and groom chose to break with tradition and have a first look. Before the bride went down the aisle and they tied the knot. The both really enjoyed the experience and said it felt less pressurised doing it that way.
An Outdoor Ceremony With Floral Arch
The lovely couple had a wonderful outdoor ceremony in the grounds of Syon House. Folly Lane Flowers created a spectacular arch. Which the couple exchanged their vows in front, watched by their friends and family.
The happy couple were greeted to rapturous applause and smiling faces as they had their first kiss. And as they walked down the aisle they had the most enthusiastic confetti throw.
Sneaking Away at Bicton Park Wedding
One of my favourite moments is the couple shots. It’s the perfect opportunity for the happy couple to take a minute to themselves. The perfect moment just to breath and enjoy the moment.
The couple enjoyed taking the time stroll around Bicton Park. Enjoying time together in the Amazing Victorian greenhouse as well as wandering around the gardens.
A Tropical Tipi

The wedding cake that guests enjoyed was a cake created with various different flavoured cheeses. Decorated with fruits and cactus. Homemade marmalade was in tiny jars were available for
Riotous Evening Festivities
Sausage and Pear created a sumptuous feast for guests to enjoy. And after some hilarious speeches, it was dance time. The bride and groom hit the dance floor first. And the guests joined them wearing masks of the couple’s faces.
