Kelly and Mike’s wedding was a magical celebration, whisking us all into a Harry Potter-themed wonderland! Every moment was picture-perfect, filled with the warmth of love and joy. The sun cast a gentle, cozy glow over the day, setting the stage for a dreamy atmosphere. Kelly, beaming with happiness, got ready against the scenic backdrop of Paignton seafront, surrounded by her closest friends and family. The excitement was palpable, with everyone eagerly preparing for the unforgettable day ahead. I felt so fortunate to witness and capture these heartwarming moments.

Over at Bickley Mill, Mike was getting ready in the quaint and comfortable surroundings of the inn. It’s always intriguing to see the different atmospheres for each person on such a day, but both Kelly and Mike were filled with a delightful mix of anticipation and happiness. As a photographer, I find the preparation time truly special. It’s a relaxed and joyful period, marked by laughter, the clinking of glasses, and high spirits. I may not partake in the bubbly myself, but the happiness it brings is utterly infectious. Kelly and Mike’s special day was brimming with laughter and radiant smiles.

Adding to the magic, their beloved dog was there to share in their special day, bringing an extra touch of joy and companionship. It’s always a delight to see furry friends being part of such significant moments.

Kelly’s entrance was a scene straight out of a fairy tale. She glided down the aisle, a vision of elegance, her exquisite dress a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and beauty surrounded by her loved ones.

Being a wedding photographer, it’s a joy when couples like Kelly and Mike embrace creativity. They allowed me to capture all the significant moments they’ll cherish forever while giving me the freedom to explore my artistic side. I’m deeply grateful for their trust, which enables me to create photos that are not only emotional and artistic but also full of life and color. Looking back on their Harry Potter-themed wedding, the day was a vibrant tapestry of colors, from the lush greens of Bickley Mill to the bright, enchanting floral arrangements.

A toast to Kelly and Mike for inviting me into their enchanting journey. Their love story unfolded on a day that was absolutely perfect, surrounded by family, friends, laughter, and a touch of wizarding magic.

Capturing these precious moments was an absolute honor, and I am eternally grateful for the opportunity. -Helen Chapman Photography, your Devon wedding photographer, capturing the raw emotions and artistic beauty of your special day.
