In all these years, I’ve never been a second photographer at a wedding until a month ago. My good friend Jonathan had a wedding on his books and thought it would be a good idea to have me along.
I’ve had Jonathan alongside me for the past year or so, helping me out at weddings and various other projects whilst he’s “still training his eye.” However, on this occasion the roles were reversed and I would be the one assisting him. I’d been looking forward to such a day for a long time, to relax and document a wedding without the pressures of delivering the final product.
Sarah and Karl’s Devonshire Wedding turned out to be the perfect day for this! They had the stunning Huntsham Court in Tiverton for the entire weekend. Jonathan and I drove up from London to Tiverton on the Friday. This turned out to be a pretty good call as there was an informal gathering of Sarah & Karl’s family and friends that evening. We used the opportunity to get comfortable amongst them as well as to discus a few plans and ideas for the wedding day. A few of their friends are within the creative industry and Karl himself dabbles in photography so that made for good conversation throughout the weekend.
The wedding day was lovely. The Scottish contingent was my favourite, especially at the free bar during the reception! Sarah’s Dad’s inability to pronounce Karl’s name properly due to his strong Scottish accent was also priceless!
This wedding will have a special place in my heart for various reasons. One being that it was the first time ever in my career that I had the opportunity to be a second photographer. Another reason being the possibility that this could be the last time Johnathan and I shoot a wedding together for a little while (more on that in the coming months). It’s been a fun and emotional ride buddy, we have shared some interesting moments along the way – Trudy, Tuscany and borrowing each other’s gear just to name a few.
Sarah and Karl you guys rock! Thank you for choosing Jonathan as your Devonshire Wedding Photographer. Johnny thanks for having me along for the weekend. Below is a limited selection of images from Sarah & Karl’s Devonshire Wedding. Check out Johnathan’s coverage to see more photographs from the day, it is so worth it!
