ZEPHYREHOODBACP202- CLIENT 19

Where do I begin with this wedding? I met Harry and Hayley for coffee and we instantly connected and when it came to their wedding day which happened to be the same day as the royal wedding, it just felt easy. Their wedding took place at the stunning Whitsand Bay Fort in Cornwall and because the weather was so fabulous, the ceremony took place outside in the pagoda overlooking the cornish sea.

The day started very relaxed, it was nice to be able to see the bride and groom both before the ceremony both being close together! Hayley had a stunning dress from Wed2b in Exeter which actually had two looks which I absolutely loved, talk about making the most out of a dress! Their flowers were absolutely beautiful and I have never seen so many beautiful buttonholes ever…The weather was amazing all day, we had yet another beautiful cornish sunset to take some pictures and these two felt and looked like royalty all day.

Thank you both for letting me part of your amazing wedding day, I wish you both happiness in your future together!

Weddings

L&B WATERMARKED-221

Weddings in Cornwall are beautiful and this wedding was just a photographer’s dream. As much as I love the cornish sea air and the beautiful landscapes, getting to spend my day with Laura and Baz celebrating their marriage was just the best.

I started my morning with Laura and all the ladies at her father’s home, it was super chilled with all the bridal party and hair and makeup team chatting away like a bunch of old friends. I eventually whipped down the road to say hello to Baz before heading off to their reception at the quaint Rose in Vale which just had the most beautiful building and gardens. It was a small intimate ceremony for just close family and friends and then onto their blessing with the rest of the guests which was located in a field just down the road from the house. We managed to take a detour to Wheal Coates before the blessing so we could take some images against that epic cornish backdrop, it looks like a painting just look at those colours! The reception was full of laughter, handpicked wines, olives, children making dens with the haybales and I can honestly say this will be the one and only time an image of mine will be on a beer tap, see if you can spot it! And to top it off we were super lucky to have a beautiful cornish sunset to end this beautiful wedding day.

To Baz and Laura, thank you for letting me be part of your day I wish you all the best in your adventures.

I am so incredibly proud and excited to share that I am a finalist in the South West Wedding Awards as a ‘New Wedding Business’, this is an amazing opportunity for so many local business’ to just get their names out there and hopefully network and collaborate on future projects.

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:
