Wedding Dresses Devon
This serendipitous shoot first began when photographer Em from Rhapsody Road was deliberating moving to Devon. "I’d walked past
Flour Flower in Brixham when it was closed but it was so inviting that I
made a special trip to visit before I returned back home. It’s a café
and flower shop in one, hence the name. Jan has such a unique
and refreshing style and I instantly thought I’d like to do a wedding
shoot with her. We made the deal then, that should I decide to move to Devon we would do
a photo shoot together. I did move and so, here we are!" she reveals.
wanted to keep the photo shoot as local to Brixham as possible in order
to celebrate the local wedding community," Em explains. "I’d already heard of Lupton
House, that it was a community space and wedding venue, so when Jan
suggested we should approach them I was in instant agreement."

Mae, adding a touch of cheeky 60’s vibe to Charlie’s look," adds Em.
Taking advantage of the venue's airiness and spectacular aspects, Em injected her own personal photography style into the shoot to capture the house and gorgeously styled models. "I used as much natural light as possible, as is
my style, with a little bit of flash when it was needed," she elaborates. "As a
photographer, my biggest aim is to bring out the person’s personality, so I chatted with the ladies, we did a little dance here and there,
drank lots of tea, discussed life, 'ooohed' and 'aaahed' at dresses and most
importantly - we had fun!"
