Wedding Photographer Classic VW
I love being a wedding photographer. And sometimes its as much about something the bride and groom have organised as about the location.
At a recent wedding, the couple had booked a Classic 1967 split-screen VW camper van. It was so spectacular, that I felt it needed its very own blog page!
Speaking to Bob, who owned and drove it, he explained that he’d spent more than 4 years completely rebuilding the vehicle. And it was well worth it. It’s already won a number of concours events, and I imagine he’ll be entering it a lot more in the future.
Bob arrived at the brides home with plenty of time to spare on a gloriously sunny March morning in the north Devon seaside town of Ilfracombe. The drive to St Sabinius church in Woolacombe took just a few minutes through a country lane. But wisely, Bob took his VW along a main route to avoid having to stop every 100 yards to let other vehicles coming the opposite way pass.
This gave me, the wedding photographer, plenty of time to get to the church first.
After the ceremony, there were gasps from plenty of the guests when they saw the VW.
The groom, bestman and ushers didn’t have to be asked twice to don their sunglasses and strike a cool pose by the van.
I want one!
If you’re booking this wonderful classic VW and want a wedding photographer who will capture some gorgeous photographs of it (and of you too), call me on O77IO 286 OI6

Aimee really wanted to get married near where she had grown up in Devon. So the Berry Head Hotel at Brixham was the perfect location.
Perched on a low cliff overlooking the bay, this hotel had a lovely walled garden and the weather was just perfect.
Exploring around the grounds I was really tempted by what appeared to be a ruined kiln in the woodland. But sadly, wedding dresses and woodland don’t often mix, so I had to reluctantly abandon that idea (but I’m keeping it up my sleeve for the next shoot there.)
Trevor is a keen photographer, so I new I’d have my work cut out. And he and Aimee were great. Mellow and relaxed – even if nobody in the entire hotel knew how a cravat should be knotted.

Rosemary & Julian attend a chapel in Exeter where they were getting married in the early spring.
Unusually, they had two ministers perform the service, one being the local minister, the other from Cheltenham.
Following the ceremony which was in the centre of Exeter, we drove out to an old pub called the Fingle Bridge Inn, unsurprisingly located next to the Fingle Bridge.
About 400 meters from the bridge, I had discovered what seemed to be the remains of an ancient Mill, complete with broken down stone walls and various pieces of cast iron gears. This was my chosen spot for the couple-shoot I always like to do, away from the rest of the guests.
Rosemary & Julian simply loved this location. And it shows.
