Cornwall Coastline Wedding

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.

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…cornwall_wedding_photo_036 cornwall_wedding_photo_035 cornwall_wedding_photo_037 cornwall_wedding_photo_038 cornwall_wedding_photo_039cornwall_wedding_photo_040 cornwall_wedding_photo_041 cornwall_wedding_photo_043 cornwall_wedding_photo_044 cornwall_wedding_photo_045 cornwall_wedding_photo_042 cornwall_wedding_photo_046 cornwall_wedding_photo_047 cornwall_wedding_photo_048 cornwall_wedding_photo_049cornwall_wedding_photo_050 cornwall_wedding_photo_051 cornwall_wedding_photo_052cornwall_wedding_photo_053 cornwall_wedding_photo_054 cornwall_wedding_photo_009 cornwall_wedding_photo_021 cornwall_wedding_photo_023 cornwall_wedding_photo_007 cornwall_wedding_photo_004cornwall_wedding_photo_055 cornwall_wedding_photo_058 cornwall_wedding_photo_059 cornwall_wedding_photo_061 cornwall_wedding_photo_056 cornwall_wedding_photo_057 cornwall_wedding_photo_060 cornwall_wedding_photo_006

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!cornwall_wedding_photo_062 cornwall_wedding_photo_003cornwall_wedding_photo_005 cornwall_wedding_photo_063 cornwall_wedding_photo_02420140809_681cornwall_wedding_photo_066 cornwall_wedding_photo_068 cornwall_wedding_photo_069 cornwall_wedding_photo_070 cornwall_wedding_photo_067 cornwall_wedding_photo_071cornwall_wedding_photo_072 cornwall_wedding_photo_073 cornwall_wedding_photo_074 cornwall_wedding_photo_075 cornwall_wedding_photo_076 cornwall_wedding_photo_077 cornwall_wedding_photo_078cornwall_wedding_photo_080 cornwall_wedding_photo_079 cornwall_wedding_photo_081 cornwall_wedding_photo_082 cornwall_wedding_photo_083 cornwall_wedding_photo_084 cornwall_wedding_photo_085

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!cornwall_wedding_photo_100 cornwall_wedding_photo_101 cornwall_wedding_photo_087 cornwall_wedding_photo_088 cornwall_wedding_photo_089 cornwall_wedding_photo_099cornwall_wedding_photo_097 cornwall_wedding_photo_090 cornwall_wedding_photo_091 cornwall_wedding_photo_086 cornwall_wedding_photo_094 cornwall_wedding_photo_092 cornwall_wedding_photo_093 cornwall_wedding_photo_098 cornwall_wedding_photo_095 cornwall_wedding_photo_096
