Welcome to Suppliers Local to Shilstone.

This page is a working progress and we are excited to continue adding to it in the future.

Below are suppliers based locally to Shilstone who have not yet had the opportunity to work a wedding with us. All businesses have to start somewhere, therefore, we are hoping this little page goes some way in gaining them exposure.




Rabbit House Studio Photography

With a degree in photography way back in 2009, it took Hannah to have her own children to realise how much she loved turning the most special moments in time into pictures that can be treasured forever. Hannah loves to reflect on how lucky she is, that her job is to capture these moments for you, as they happen, using natural light and beautiful moments that appear right in front of her. Hannah can capture all of the big and small moments in your life, and almost everything in between! Hannah loves the emotions of weddings, the magic of newborns and the fun of a family shoot!

Rosemary Despres Photography

Rosie offers a unique, luxury, personal experience, tailored to each client; with unlimited meetings with couples up to their wedding day and after. All of the coverage is personalised and we discuss how to make the couple portrait time as personal as possible. Whilst based in Devon, Rosie will travel literally anywhere for photos! Rosie promises you will receive absolutely stunning images, and will ensure you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. Rosie strives to create works of art from every wedding, and photograph in a very natural, not intrusive way. Rosie takes on just a small number of weddings each year so she can devote a lot of time to them!

Hair and Make-Up

Bohemia Beauty

Bohemia Beauty is an individual business based in South Devon and run by qualified make-up artist Kelsey Gitsham.

Here’s what Kelsey has to say about herself:

I received my media make-up degree in 2018 and have since had experience in special effects, but now wish to turn my hand to beauty and bridal. I find that one of the best parts of a good night is getting ready for it! I aim to make your wedding morning, hen-do makeover or party pre-drinks even easier and together we add to your excitement for the event to come. I understand that organising a big event can be stressful, so I aim to provide hassle-free service and to keep in touch with you along the way, as to ensure a personalised look that realises your beauty dreams.
