We thoroughly enjoyed being along for the ride at Tom & Erica’s wedding at the Mill End Hotel, an elegant 4 star hotel picturesquely located on the banks of the river Teign.

Mill End is just outside Chagford and only a 5 minute drive from our base in neighbouring Moretonhampstead, making this one of the most local weddings we’ve ever covered.

The happy couple are the proprietors of the historic Bearslake Inn, where they fell in love whilst working together. They first met each other during a job interview, in which Erica was the applicant and Tom the interviewer; needless to say, she got the job and the rest is history! Their special day was relaxed and full of love, laughs, family and sunshine. Their adorable son Oliver frequently stole the show, along with his cousins Oscar and Taylor, the sons of Tom’s twin brother Sam, whose wife Danica was also Erica’s bridesmaid on the day.

Music during the ceremony and in the evening was expertly provided by Paddy’s Whiskers who had everyone dancing, jigging and reeling the night away with their upbeat mix of traditional and modern Irish, Celtic and American music.

The floral arrangements, bouquets and buttonholes by Okehampton-based florist The Flower Consultant were truly some of the most tasteful and stylish we’ve seen locally, so we highly recommend them if you’re looking for wonderful wedding flowers in Devon!

We wish Erica and Tom the very best for the future and hope they’ve thoroughly enjoyed their first few weeks of married life!
