A September Wedding At The Horn Of Plenty

The setting for this beautiful wedding was the magnificent Horn of Plenty in Devon, an adorable independent hotel with some seriously breathtaking views over the Tamar Valley. And boy did the photographer, Ashley Ide, make use of their insanely beautiful surroundings, especially with those striking sunset shots! 

Here's what Ashley had to say about the day...

"The Horn of plenty is situated on the outskirts of tavistock and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and spectacular views of Dartmoor, this, and the fact the venue is full of character, made for some great images of Leanne, her mum, her bridesmaids, and family.  

We then headed over to The St Eustachius church in Tavistock and the bride travelled in a beautiful jaw dropping Regeant convertible from Westcountry wedding car's. When I arrived at the church I already knew where I wanted to be to capture the ceremony as it unfolded as I had attended the rehearsal a few days prior and knew the church from previous weddings I had documented there, it was lovely to see all of Leanne's and Steve's family waiting for the big entrance and Steve himself waiting for his beautiful bride to walk down the isle. Their was so much emotion and love throughout the ceremony which consisted of a traditional service followed by a greek service as Steve's family are greek, which was obviously special ceremony to both families.

At the Horn of Plenty we had some more formal portraits with stunning backdrops that this beautiful wedding venue had to offer, and after the group portraits we utilised the stunning gardens and grounds of the venue and took the bride and groom off for some portraits.

​Leanne and Steves reception venue was magnificent and once we returned from the portraits we headed in for the meal and speeches which was a very emotional time for both sides of the family remember friends and family present and past who couldn't be their to enjoy their special day but they sure were their in their memories and thoughts.

I believe Leanne planned most of the wedding herself with the help of her family and of course Steve, she really did a great job in the attention to detail, and its the finer details that really makes a wedding extra special, and it was so apparent the amount of effort that went into the full day from all the vendors that made Leanne and Steve's special day something their families will remember for many, many years."
