Lupton House and Berry Head Hotel Wedding – Amy and Fred

065 - Berry Head Hotel Wedding - Amy and Fred

Two weekends ago I was down on the English Riviera in Torbay to photograph the wonderful wedding of Amy and Fred. I met up with the bridal party at Amy’s mum’s house, just a stone’s throw away from Broadsands Beach in Paignton. I was greeted on arrival by a flurry of activity from the bridesmaids as well as fresh pancakes courtesy of John (more weddings need to start with fresh pancakes!!!). Amy looked stunning in her lace accented dress from Dizzie Lizzie’s of Torquay whilst the bridesmaids wore mint coloured dresses to co-ordinate with the groomsmen’s accessories.

The wedding ceremony took place a few miles down the road in The Sanctuary Room at Lupton House Brixham. It was a joyous affair with lots of love and laughter on display. Amy was walked down the aisle by her mum, Gill, and the newlyweds were also joined by their gorgeous 9 month old son, Rory. After the ceremony the guests retired back to the Library Bar within the main house for the drinks reception. However; it was such a lovely sunny day that people soon spilled out into the lawn.

The wedding party then made their way 3 miles down the road to Berry Head Hotel which is perched atop of the cliffs of Brixham overlooking the whole of Torbay. The hotel has an interesting history with the building dating back to 1803. It was originally built as a military hospital in support of the three Napoleonic war forts on Berry Head. The famous hymn Abide with me, traditionally sung before each FA Cup final, was also written in the grounds of the hotel by Henry Francis Lyte in 1847.

The wedding breakfast made the most of the seaside setting with the tables being decorated with shells and driftwood, and buckets stuffed with sweets for the little ones. A bouncy castle and garden games ensured that there was no shortage of entertainment for the wedding party during the afternoon and once the sun set everybody moved back indoors and kept the dance floor packed until the small hours. Here’s a few pictures from Amy and Fred’s big day . . .
