Mr and Mrs Bunhill – Cornwall

BUNHILL 2 081

Mr & Mrs Bunhill

I met Emma and Tim and their adorable little boy Arlo back in April where we discussed their wedding and how they wanted it to be a very ‘non-traditional’, relaxed affair at the lovely Mount Pleasant Ecological Park. An alternative vegetarian wedding venue positioned beautifully on the hilltop near Porthtowan, with views of rolling hills and with an aim for leaving ‘as little mark on the world as possible’, this venue is just perfect for those couples wishing for a greener wedding. The venue boasts a stunning timber framed barn, onsite glamping, an amphitheatre visible by walking through a beautifully handcrafted willow archway and much more. It is hard not to fall in love with this gorgeous countryside venue.

The day started with very casual preparations, the bridal party in the red geodome and the men…..well mostly in tents! After ironing everybody’s clothes, eating handmade cheese rolls, nibbling offcuts of cake and little Arlo running around making everybody laugh, the gifts were exchanged and Emma had a first look at her wedding dress. There was an emotional reveal of the dress that was kept secret for so long, made lovingly by her talented mother. Many tears and lots of hugs followed, a sense of love, family and happiness in the air.

Tim and Emma decided to have a first look with each other privately underneath the willow archway; a beautiful moment that I was lucky enough to be part of, before starting their day with a cream tea and Pimms with all of their family and friends.  Their cream tea took place near the fire pit and was met with a stunning backdrop of countryside landscape and the sun shining down on us all, it was a beautiful area to relax, have some formal pictures and for everybody to just have a good old catch up. The ceremony then took place in the glorious earthy amphitheatre, with grass covered tyres as seats in the walls. Talented family members were appointed to play classical music as the guests entered followed by the wedding party. The ceremony was warm, sweet and in true boho style, Emma remained barefoot throughout. After the ceremony the champagne was opened, confetti was thrown and we walked to the barn seating area and had a 100% vegetarian summery feast of locally sourced food. After this, speeches and poems were delivered and then the cake was cut, another item handcrafted by yet another family member. And finally to end the night a lovely Ceilidh was provided which had everybody up on the dance floor completely merry after the most lovely Cornish wedding.

I felt so touched that Tim and Emma found me and asked me to capture their unique day, it felt effortless with such a genuine, lovely couple. The combination of a stunning venue, warmhearted family and friends, two hearts and a little boy, it truly was a perfect wedding day.

Here I tell their beautiful story of their wedding day though my lens:

I haven’t blogged for a while as I have been very busy just diving into wedding photography and after my initial hard work I have managed to get over 20 bookings for 2017/2018, so I feeling quite relieved that I am starting to get my name out there and know I am heading in the right direction.

After doing my business plan it has been hard to tick off all of my forecast but learning to understand that a business and a clientele base takes time and a lot of patience. So whilst I build myself up I have been learning lots about photography, social media and branding by attending workshops hosted by Liberty Pearl Photography and various online tutorials, image is so important for a business as well as knowledge and I know I still have a long  way to go. But for now I am currently spending the Easter holidays playing with my daughter, collecting wild flowers and drinking tea 🌸

I met this lovely couple last week after their engagement on Christmas Day for a little walk around Burrator with their little pooch, it was very clear what we all wanted to get from the shoot and as I focus this year on wedding photography I couldn’t have started it better with these two in the most perfect location.

Congratulations!
