Salcombe beach wedding

September 21, 2013

I've been meaning to blog this lovely wedding for ages, part of the 2013 back log! Mackenzie, our beautiful bride grew up in the South Hams town of Salcombe and met American husband-to-be Geoff whilst on an extreme running holiday in Africa (as you do!) The chaps wore dinner jackets and bow ties as is customary for US weddings and the day was inspired by the couples travels and by the Devonshire seaside setting. Shades of blue featured throughout, from the bridemaids dresses to the hydrangea bouquets and flower arrangements. The ceremony was in a Salcombe Church and the reception at the laid-back 'Winking Prawn' - a cool cafe next to the beach in Salcombe. We had a fab day photographing this beautiful, stylish day and here is a collection of some of our favourite moments from the day. Some words below from our lovely bride Mackenzie...

From our lovely bride Mackenzie...

As an American and a Brit who live in Germany and met in Africa, we wanted to take the best aspects of British and US weddings to create a day that we and our guests, who had flown in from around the world, would never forget.  Ladies in hats, men in Tuxes, our wedding brought together different aspects of our cultures, our love of travel and as well as the seaside influence of having a wedding in Salcombe. We wanted to create a special occasion, without taking ourselves too seriously, and have a day that everyone could enjoy. We are probably the only couple who were surprised by Superman giving the address as a part of our ceremony!

Salcombe Trinity Church is a very special spot for us. Mackenzie was christened there and it was also the venue for her parents wedding too. Father Daniel is such a fantastic guy, who really helped prep us for marriage and gave us the serious but laid back service we were looking for.

Brides dress  I had a very specific idea in mind, I really wanted lace with sleeves and couldn’t find what I wanted anywhere. My mum happened to meet Ali from Sewn Up in Plymstock (+44 1752 480111) who custom made my lace dress, we had such a giggle (and a few tears from my side!) during the fittings. She is an absolute gem and the dress was exactly what I dreamed of.

The Cake – The delicious 4 tier chocolate brownie cake, covered in white chocolate frosting and shavings, was made by a local baker, Jo. It was simply to die for and everyone raved about it.  

The Flowers – I was so lucky that my mum’s friends are so talented and offered to do the flowers for us. I knew from the outset that I wanted blue and white hydrangeas and am fortunate to have family and friends across the South Hams who grew them for us and let us raid their gardens in the run up to the wedding. The flowers and decorations were so beautiful that Karen and my mother Suzy have since set up their own event floral and decorations company Twig of Salcombe :  Contact Karen at TwigofSalcombe@gmail.com for more information.

It was the most amazing day and Katherine and Steve did such a wonderful job at capturing it for us and were a pleasure to have there on our ‘big day’.
