Weddings at Rockbeare Manor

I’ve had a flurry of enquiries lately for wedding photography at Rockbeare Manor near Exeter. So, I thought I’d put a selection of my photos in one blog post for couples looking for photos taken here. I’ve been shooting weddings at Rockbeare Manor since they launched as a Devon wedding venue a few years ago. If you’re considering this elegant country house for your venue or have already booked, browse the photos for some inspiration.

Rockbeare Manor wedding venue

Rockbeare Manor is a country manor house which provides an elegant setting for your wedding. The Dining Room hosts the ceremony and The Ballroom is transformed for your wedding breakfast. I love walking in to see how it has been decorated for each wedding. From fun themes like Disney and Harry Potter to elegant décor with mirrors and candles, the room always looks stunning.

Getting ready at Rockbeare Manor

The spacious Drawing Room is a dream for bridal prep. The room gives a stunning backdrop as you have hair and make-up done with your bridesmaids. The Bridal Suite next door is also available for getting dressed and is an ideal place to hang dresses for some detail shots and, of course, to capture lots of dress-pouffing! The games room downstairs in a place for the groomsmen to hang out before the ceremony so I’ll be sure to pop downstairs and get a few photos of the boys too!

Wedding ceremony at Rockbeare Manor

The weddings I’ve covered have all been indoors in the elegant Dining Room but an outdoor option is also available. You can add you own touches with chair covers, candles or flowers. It’s a lovely room in which to say ‘I do’ surrounded by family and friends.

Wedding reception at Rockbeare Manor

This part of the day usually begins with a confetti shot set against the manor house. Guests then mingle outside over welcome drinks before being seated for the wedding breakfast. Everything runs like clockwork with a dedicated wedding planner on hand. The food is always excellent (they feed the photographer too – always a bonus!). I love capturing the speeches and guests’ reactions. In the evening, I’ll stay for the first dance and some dance-floor action from your guests.

Relaxed couple portraits at Rockbeare Manor

The grounds of Rockbeare Manor provide a romantic backdrop for some relaxed couple shots. We’ll take a stroll and stop at a few spots to get the best photos. The tree-lined driveway is really pretty with the light coming through the trees and the flower garden at the front of the house is perfect in the evening sun.
