River Dart Wedding

Rachel & Daryl - 26th September 2009

YHA River Dart, Galmpton, Devon

The setting for Rachel and Daryl's humanist ceremony was the River Dart Youth Hostel Association near Dartmouth. What an amazing place it was with incredible views over the River Dart to Dartmouth.

The great thing about humanist ceremonies is the ability to say and do whatever means something special to you. We've never been at a wedding where the guests sang 'Bring Me Sunshine' before!

The ceremony was held outside and luckily the weather was perfect. All the guests sat along bench tables and tucked in to a hog roast in the sunshine. Later an ice cream bicycle arrived and the guests queued up for yummy Devon ice creams.

And of course we have to mention the oldest Best Man ever, Daryl's 82 year old step dad Peter (he won't mind us saying).

"What can we say ... the photos are absolutely beautiful, we were mesmorised, in fact we watched them for a full four hours when they first came through - and then Lily arrived and we watched them all over again ... As Daryl said, 90% of them could go on the wall. What I particularly love is that there are so many fantastic shots of our family and friends, so that they too can have a special and meaningful momento from our wedding day. Over and beyond the photos, working with the pair of you was a complete pleasure. You were professional, helpful, sensitive to our needs and just generally lovely! Many of our guests assumed you were our friends - I only hope they're now right ... We'll definitely do our best to spread the word and ensure we meet again. Thank you so much for capturing our magical day so well."

"Well your mum and I are flabbergasted. The wedding pix are the best and most emotive I've ever seen. As you say, they capture the spirit and heart of the day and, like you, we laughed and cried. I think the interjection of mono against the colour is superb artistry."

Peter, Daryl's dad and Best Man

"Rach, those pictures are really good. I've viewed some wedding photos in my time, but none as good as that."


"Logan and I have just looked at the wedding photos, they are fantastic, you were so right to get those photographers, they're brilliant, really nice. Even Logan stayed for the whole show, not just the highlights ... !"


"Best wedding photographs I've ever seen, they really captured the day. Tracy sat and cried ..."


"Seeing images like that was just beautiful!!! Well done guys!!! Fantastic!!! You wouldn't get piccies like that here in Australia with such style and beauty as that!!!! Just beautiful!!!!"
