As we approached Yarner House, the location of our bridal fashion story for our tenth anniversary issue in Devon, we knew we were in for a special day. From the moment you set eyes on the centuries-old façade of the house, cloaked with ivy, the sense of seclusion and serenity is palpable. Starting life as a Tudor family home in 1660, Yarner House is nestled at the foot of Haytor Rocks on Dartmoor, offering far-reaching views across the Wray Valley.
For our shoot, it was the perfect hidden gem for some unforgettable photos, which take in the gardens dotted with spring flowers and the African hut - an enchanting setting for al fresco ceremonies. The manor house itself has a historic exterior that belies the chic interiors; a step indoors shows the contemporary design-led Scandinavian styling. Think duck egg shades, sheepskin rugs and Jacobean fireplaces, with free-standing baths and white feather globe light fittings, as well as elaborate wallpapers by Jocelyn Warner in every room.
As one of Devon's first established wedding venues, you'll be blissfully certain you're in safe hands, with a wedding team who've not only organised hundreds of weddings over two decades, but hosted a Wed Magazine photo shoot or two!
