A Cornish Wedding to Remember – Wedding Photographer Cornwall
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being the wedding photographer for the Cornwall wedding of Richie & Nickie. A wonderful couple with a beautiful young family who knew how to celebrate and have a great time! I couldn’t wait to apply my style to uniquely capture the story of their wonderful day!
My day began on a warm sunny morning at St Enoder Church. We arrived early. The church is nestled amongst thick countryside and the trees enclosed this little sanctuary like a protective cocoon. There was an energy in the air. The scattered sunlight from the waving trees peppered the church with dancing elegant patterns of light. The churchyard was full of lush wild grass and flowers, and the sky was dramatic with wispy white clouds swirling amongst the cool blue sky. The day was set.
Richie soon arrived, following by a deluge of excited guests looking forward to the day ahead. Everyone was elegantly dressed in awesome colour and style; well suited for the summary beach themed occasion!
A beautiful Cornwall Church Ceremony – Wedding Photographer Cornwall
The Cornwall church ceremony was wonderfully conducted by Canon. Hilary Samson. Nickie looked amazing being proudly walked down the aisle by her father. The ceremony was full of smiles and laughter with beautiful readings, pray and song.
The Church was also a wonderful place to photograph this Cornwall wedding ceremony. The elegant architecture, brightness, and delicate details of the woodwork all added to its charm. Working with Leah (from Leah Karen Photography) we were able to capture plenty of amazing perspectives and moments.
The Watering Hole – Wedding Photographer Cornwall
Following the ceremony, we excitedly journeyed the short distance to Parrenporth and on to the unique beach venue called The Watering Hole. The Watering Hole is the UK’s only bar on a beach. Shadowed by mighty wind swept sand dunes and unbroken sea views looking over the pristine golden sands of Parrenporth beach. It made for a truly special and well-suited venue for Richie and Nickie’s reception and party!
The speeches were eagerly observed and warmly received after some wonderful served food. Making the most of the coastal location, we then ventured onto the beach for formal pictures and portraits. A perfect setting for wedding portraits with rugged cliffs and expansive sea views for as far as the eye could see!
Party all night
As the dark pastel blues of the night sky took over the last warmth of the sunset the party really took hold. An amazing touch to the evening celebration was live music from the band Fret Junkies who Richie is a guitarist for. It was an amazing moment for everyone to see Richie’s band play together again and wow, the room was bouncing with dancing, crazy shapes, and singing.
A fantastic day which I felt the privilege to be a part off. I look forward to sharing more stories from their wonderful day in the coming weeks. Congratulations Richie & Nicki!
