Real Wedding: Katherine & Andrew
When Katherine and Andrew first contacted me I immediately liked their story. They were an English couple living in Thailand and were planning a French chateau wedding. Coming from an artistic family, photography was important to them and they had begun looking at photographers even before the venue was finalised. As it happened, they decided against the venue and ending up completely changing the country where the wedding was to take place. A family home in Cornwall was to host the event and I had the pleasure of being part of the day.
I had arrived the evening before and was to stay with the family in this beautiful part of England. Katherine’s mum had this wonderful garden situated on the rolling hills of Cornish countryside where a marque had been setup. From a photographers point of view, the view looked good and I looked forward to the following day to begin.
The wedding started with sunshine, lots of active people and photo opportunities at every turn! Katherine got ready in a stunning room overlooking the marque through beaming windows. The village church was just a stones throw away up the hill. Until this point I had yet to meet Andrew (other than on Skype) who was busy greeting guests as they arrived. He looked calm…
The evening atmosphere was relaxed spread with bursts of laughter from left to right. Despite the earlier rainfall, they still managed to light the huge bonfire, the first I’ve seen at a wedding, followed by fire performers and fireworks!
The following day I when location scouting in preparation for a portrait session with the newly weds later that day. The winds were strong that day which added a wild and dramatic edge to the shoot. Katherine and Andrew looked great on those coastal rocks!
Thank you to an amazing couple!
