In the heart of East Devon lies a hidden gem, a place that exudes grace and elegance. Escot House on Escot Estate, a venue that will take your breath away. As a Devon wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing the emotions and beauty that unfold within this picturesque estate.

Imagine stepping foot into a world where time stands still, where history surrounds you in every corner. Escot House, steeped in tradition, has been home to the Kennaway family for over two centuries. This stately manor carries with it a sense of grandeur, a feeling of being transported to a different era.

The moment you enter, you are greeted by 220 acres of pure tranquility. The parkland and private grounds that embrace Escot House serve as a backdrop for your special day, providing a sense of serenity that will only enhance the emotions of your wedding. As a photographer, I believe that emotions are the key to capturing the true essence of any moment. And what better place to let those emotions flow than amidst the beauty of Escot House?

What makes Escot House truly exceptional is not just its stunning aesthetics, but also its accessibility to some of Devon’s greatest treasures. Just a short drive away, you’ll find yourself walking along the historic Jurassic coastline, where the waves crash against the rugged cliffs, telling stories of a time long past. It’s a place where nature stands tall, where the colors of the sea blend seamlessly with the vibrant hues of the sky. As an artist behind the lens, I find these landscapes to be an endless source of inspiration.

But that’s not all. Dartmoor National Park, with its moors stretching as far as the eye can see, beckons you to explore. Picture yourself standing amidst the rolling hills, bathed in warm golden light, capturing precious moments that will last a lifetime. Devon offers a kaleidoscope of scenery and experiences, painting a colorful canvas for your wedding day.

And let’s not forget the English Riviera at Torbay, a place where seaside charm meets coastal beauty. The gentle breeze carries the scent of salt and adventure, inviting you to take a leisurely stroll along the promenade, hand in hand with your loved one. As a Devon wedding photographer, I understand the importance of capturing those intimate moments, those stolen glances, and Torbay provides the perfect setting.

Escot House and East Devon offer you the best of both worlds – a stunning, timeless venue and the opportunity to explore some of Devon’s most captivating attractions. As a photographer, I am committed to capturing the essence of your special day, to create tangible memories that will transport you back to that moment, to evoke the emotions that were felt. Your wedding day deserves nothing less than an artist who can capture the depth of love and the vibrancy of life.

So, if you’re seeking a wedding venue that embodies tradition, artistry, and accessibility, Escot House on Escot Estate is the place for you. Let’s embark on this magical journey together, where emotions run deep, colors come alive, and love is forever etched in photographs.
