Catherine & Laurence's beach tipi Devon wedding

Catherine and Laurence were married in a tiny church near her grandparents house in the small hamlet of Fishpond Dorset. Her grandparents used to be church wardens there and their house is just a couple of hundred meters up the road. After the ceremony everyone ventured to the house for some drinks to celebrate in their beautiful garden with views over the Dorset coast. We then ventured to the reception venue on Branscombe beach in Devon, ca 45 minute drive away. They told me it would be a Tip tent wedding by the beach, but I was breathtaking by the location when I arrived, it was literally on the beach! 

Catherine and Laurence had it all for their day, scorching weather, blue skies, a beautiful tipi provided by World Inspired Tents, tasty Paella made by the lovely crew from Hermanos Paella, a Cheese Van for snacks, a Ceilidh Band and a marshmallow roasting pit and much more..

Chris and Beth relaxed vibe wedding at The Green Cornwall

Chris and Beth tied the knot on the 13th of may at The Green Cornwall Weddings & Events. The Green feels like a second home to me meanwhile as I have shot so many weddings there and had the honour of photographing the venue for their webpage update last year. It's a beautiful drive over Bodmin Moor and as soon as I drive down the green valley to The Green I immediately feel relaxed. There is something about this place..

Beth and Chris' stayed there for the weekend with their closest friends and family. The day couldn't have been more relaxed and fun. We had everything from sunshine, overcast, rain and wind, typical cornish weather! Good that the rain stayed away until 4pm, so we could have a wander down the woodland for some couple portraits. I was stoked to find the bluebells still flowering and it's definitely one of my favourite shots from the day.. Beth was well prepared and had 2 sets of wedding shoes, the sparkly kind and some lovely Dr Martens to be comfortable for our photoshoot. 

The reception was held in the new wedding barn. It's my first wedding I shot in there this year and I instantly love it. Lots of light in there even on an overcast day, which is always good for me and makes my job easier..

Here is a selection of my favourites..

Sarah-Jane & David's pre wedding shoot on the beach

Last week I met Sarah-Jane and David for their pre-wedding consultation. We ventured down the beach for some shots. The tide came in quicker than we thought and it turned into a little rock scrambling adventure with lots of laughter. What a lovely couple, I can't wait to shoot their wedding this summer at Lusty Glaze!
