I was sooooo excited for this wedding. After a year of hard work of advertising and growing the business in Cornwall, capturing a few engagements and vow renewals, I was over the moon to be capturing this gorgeous wedding, and it couldn't get much more local!
Csaba & Grace live in Exeter but believe it or not Grace's parents live across the street from me. They were getting married at the quaint church of St Columb Minor (literally just round the corner from me), then were moving on the Bedruthan Steps Hotel. Just 5 miles north of Newquay, it overlooks the iconic and beautiful coastline known as The Bedruthan Steps. The Granite rocks that are dotted across the beach are, according to legend, stepping stones for the Giant Bedruthan.
With gorgeous sunflowers, sunshine and a hotel over looking the beach (and the surf), with a wonderful couple who could not stop smiling all day, I felt truly blessed to have been apart of this awesome wedding!
I had the pleasure of capturing the lovely Rob and Bex get married at Stockbridge Farm Barn, a gorgeous rustic barn a few miles from Sherborne. I met Rob and Bex a while back at their home in Southampton and we instantly clicked, their cats also loved me! They are a very chilled out couple who, like everyone, hates having their photograph taken. But having a stunning relaxed venue, a sunny day ad my relaxed approach set us on a very fun journey!
Due to the amazing weather we were lucky enough to have the wedding outdoors under the barn roof. It was absolutely perfect!
I had the absolute pleasure of capturing this gorgeous surprise vow renewal at Landal Gwel an Mor. Kevin and Linda have been married 38 years, Linda has always dreamt of having a wonderful vow renewal, which she was hoping would be for their 40th anniversary. However, Kevin had other ideas. He and family and been sneaky for almost a year! Contacting suppliers in Cornwall with secret emails and phone calls to get everything booked in. One of his first bookings was with the lovely Georgie at Kernow Civil Ceremonies, she holds beautiful and personal ceremonies across Cornwall. Finding everything she needs, Georgie will write your love story and make your ceremony one of a kind.
After Kevin had booked Georgie and the Yurt hut at Gwel an Mor, Georgie Kindly passed on my details to him. With secret emails and an odd phone call we were set for the vow renewal in August. Linda hadn't a clue what was going on. They had told her they had booked a family holiday to Cornwall. The morning of the wedding her daughter in laws and mother treated her to a pampering session and bought her a beautiful dress - as they were planning on having a very, very, VERY posh meal that afternoon! Little did she know she would be walking in to a stunning yurt with her husband in a pretend cast, (Kevin had broken his leg when they got married, so he had to recreate it!) and her loved ones around her...
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in July, the lovely Gavin and Ula got married. Ula is originally from Poland but her and Gavin live in Croydon. They adore Cornwall and felt they had to be married down this way. They picked a truly stunning venue - St Mawes Castle. Situated on Falmouth estuary, the grounds stretch down to the waters edge giving you uninterrupted views out to sea and over to Pendennis Castle. You can no longer get married in this stunning locations, so I am privileged to have been given this opportunity.
The day was full of smiles, laughter and canon fire!!! Here's a selection of their awesome day!
The beautiful DIY rustic wedding took place at St Andrew's Church in Kinson, then moved on to the picturesque marquee by the river at Dean's Court in Wimborne. The whole wedding was full of laughter and tears, gorgeous colours and wonderful grounds to explore!
I met the girls and Dad at Grace's parents house before meeting Matt at the church. With a slight hangover from the pre-wedding family meal, Grace was soon ready to pop the bubbles and enjoy being pampered with hair and make-up. It was then on to the church to meet Matt and the wedding guests. The ceremony was beautifully executed, with help from their family friend and vicar from Wadebridge, Cornwall to add some personal touches.
After a creative attempt on confetti - where one box was passed between all the guests - we headed on to Dean's Court. Here we had prosecco waiting, garden games and finally the sun came out to join us...
