Lusty Glaze - probably one of my favourite wedding venues in Cornwall. Just five minutes from my front door, a stunning privately owned cove tucked away on the outskirts of Newquay town centre. It is the only place in Cornwall you can legally get married on the beach. With gorgeous sunsets, hidden caves that appear at low tide and rolling waves, why wouldn't this be my dream venue to shoot at! I was over the moon when Lisa and Naomi asked me to be one of their recommended suppliers!
On a warm Saturday in September one of my oldest friends from Dorset was getting married to his dream girl. Dave and Amy are the embodiment of happiness and kindness. Nothing is too much for them, they would literally do anything for anyone if it meant they could help. Dave and Amy adore Cornwall and regularly visit. They had already planned their wedding on Lusty Glaze beach before I had even moved to Cornwall! I was so thrilled to move here and to capture this beautiful wedding! With Dorset friends, happy faces, sandy toes and a Greatest Showman first dance it was definitely a wedding I will never forget!
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!
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...
