Taking my first step as a Cornwall Wedding Photographer
Making the transition from a big, easily accessible county like Shropshire to Cornwall as a wedding photographer was always going to be a challenge. Relocating a geographical business like mine, where so much relies on word of mouth takes a lot of work, so it felt like a good omen that my first ever wedding in Cornwall came right at the time I was moving down there!
Dani and Paul’s Whitsand Bay Fort wedding ceremony
Dani and Paul’s wedding at Whitsand Bay Fort was bathed in that special brand of early summer sunshine, the kind that reflects off tarmac and feels so fresh and bright it hurts. A summer breeze added to the fresh ocean feel as the couple said their vows in front of family and friends overlooking the glittering sea below.
Garden fete wedding reception at Cutlinwith Farm
For the reception, Dani and Paul had chosen the beautiful Cutlinwith Farm, truly a wedding photographer’s dream. The house and gardens offered so many photo opportunities, with their wisteria walkway providing a beautiful backdrop for the formal photos, as well as a stunning floral place to take shade during Dani and Paul’s portrait session.
Dani had made full use of her work connection with Theatre Royal Plymouth to create a fun garden fete style reception for their guests to enjoy. There was even a splat the rat, what more could you ask for?!
Relaxed wedding photography in Cornwall
The wedding reception at Cutlinwith Farm was such a relaxed set up, with street food provided by World Food and a beautiful tipi from Wild Tipi Cornwall, and Dani and Paul really wanted their wedding photography to reflect this. With so many fun things going on, it was easy to capture the relaxed, playful atmosphere of the wedding, and the whole day was so lovely!
