Hotel Location –
Colehayes Park is a beautiful Grade II Listed, granite-built, Georgian mansion that sits in 20 acres of private woodland. Located on the edge of the stunning Dartmoor National Park.
I received an email from Ryan and Tanya asking me to photograph their wedding at Colehayes Park. Several days later I headed down to meet Tanya and Ryan in their Plymouth restaurant “the fig tree”. Tanya was great to talk to, we immediately clicked. She was warm and friendly and made me a lovely coffee. I listened to her plans and she explained the reason they picked Colehayes Park as their wedding location. Firstly it was because of it’s beautiful grounds and secondly so her family and friends can stay in the same location without having to worry about getting home after the party.
Colehayes Park Wedding –
I arrived at Colehayes Park and Tanya opened the doors to the house and was very welcoming. Bridal preparation was nice and relaxed. Tanya’s children remained on the bed eating snacks whilst Tanya and her bridal party drank champagne and prepared themselves.
I took a moment to pop downstairs and snap a few pictures of the Groom and his best man. ‘Ryan stating to me that he “wasn’t keen on the camera” but I’m sure secretly, he enjoyed this moment’.
The ceremony was very emotional. Ryan gave a lovely speech and I could see by the way he looked at Tanya that he meant every word.
After the ceremony Tanya and Ryan headed across to the lake for some portraits. It was a race against time as the weather looked like it was going to rain.
I believe you only get to wear your dress once. So wear it hard. Have fun, be silly, love and laugh in it and Tanya certainly did all of the above.
After the portraits we returned for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Ryan and Tanya being the owners of the Fig Tree Restaurant in Plymouth and also supplying the food for the wedding breakfast didn’t disappoint. It was stunning. Top class cuisine.
Speeches commenced, moving swiftly on to cutting the cake and the then Tanya and Ryan had their first dance which made a beautiful ending to the day.
I would like to share the highlights of Tanya and Ryan’s wedding –
