I always knew this would be a special wedding to photograph. Louisa is a hair and makeup artist extraordinaire - she married long time love and fellow musician Gareth in a tiny church up on a cliff in Hope Cove in Devon where she has been holidaying since she was a little girl. Right by their side - beautiful Bella - who soaked up every emotion. All in all a day bursting with sentiment, sea air, and serious soundtracks.
Also - there was a donut tower cake (I totally snaffled one and YUM!)
Jess and Andrew - the couple a weather warning for wind couldn’t even knock off their stride! These two (and their two beautiful little ladies got married on one of the windiest days I’ve ever had the joy of shooting. I love it when the elements add their own special flavour to a wedding, and I love it even more when I get a bride like Jess who throws herself into those elements, embracing them 200% (take a look at our beachfront bridal pics in gale force!) - these two are a match made in heaven. Keep throwing yourself into life like you did on your wedding day and I’m pretty sure those good times will just keep on coming :) xx
These two can usually be found back in South Africa on a beautiful game reserve, protecting wildlife and sharing their love of nature and its conservation with visitors to the most beautiful country in the world.
This weekend however they were in Clevedon, near the sea, surrounded by their favourite people as they made their incredible partnership official. I got to be their guest as well as having the privilege of documenting their day - and what a day it was.
Pip - your effervescence and general zest are one of a kind, you are human prosecco!! Sam - you have grown into a wonderful man, my heart was so full watching you (and your remarkable family) celebrate.
With love from me, my brother, my mum and Mike, and of course - the cat xxx
Anyone within earshot of me yesterday would have heard me saying what an incredible day it was! A bride and groom who adore each other, the wonderful Miss Ava who is the most fantastic big sister to baby Reuben, sun glorious sun and all in the beautiful setting of The Great Barn in Devon. Easter weekend - you were an absolute dream (Yes, there was an Easter Egg hunt. Yes, it was awesome.)
I have a new obsession - Zimbabwean wedding dances. Instead of walking to their place after being announced in for the meal the entire bridal party does a choreographed dance to the head table - pretty darn cool! Combined with a high-energy (and very moving) ceremony and a dance floor that would.not.quit it’s fair to say Becky and David didn’t let the cold weather break their stride for one second. I loved riding shotgun on this incredible meeting of hearts and cultures xxx
A fort on a cliff near the sea, a couple that had me laughing all day, the most gorgeous doggo (Ted, you are a GOOD BOY) and an actual Bohemian Rhapsody sing-a-long! I was pretty spoilt all day long at Megan and John’s Polhawn Fort Wedding in Cornwall. What a wonderful day, thank you so much for having me along to freeze some moments in time! I bet that dance floor can tell some stories!!
PS: How about that wild old sparkler GIF - YES JOHN!
Where do I begin? Laura had me laughing from the minute she filled in her client form and when I got to meet Allan for out pre-wedding chat I found myself making the most ridiculous notes for the day (ie: call people biscuit!) I always knew I was in for a good day being there wedding photographer but nothing could have prepared me for this level of joy, emotion (yes, yes it’s hayfever I know) and pure, mad fun. They say you should marry your best friend, you guys have hit the absolute jackpot and it made a job that I already adore even more incredible to do - thank you :)
And, to all your wonderful guests: You BISCUITS!
Venue: The Green Cornwall (I love working here, beautiful setting and run by absolute experts who love weddings like I do!)
