Laura & Jame's elopement at Lower Barns in Cornwall

Laura and James chose to celebrate their special day away from all the hustle with a runaway wedding at Lower Barns in Cornwall. This luxury boutique retreat, a B&B with highly unique colourful south american style is all about romance. Nestled in a hidden corner of South Cornwall, close to the sea and in walking distance of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the SW coast path. The owners are more than helpful and do everything to make you feel welcome at their unique venue.

Laura and James told their parents and friends that they would have a 3 day holiday in Cornwall and secretly got married!  I was so stoked when they asked me if I could photograph their special and intimate day. Elopements are very personal and intense, even more than weddings, as you spend a few hours just with the couple on their special day, so it's important everyone feels at ease. We couldn't have had a more relaxed approach to it: Laura and James were so easy going and relaxed, it felt like I'm just photographing friends. And with all the lovely backdrops at Lower Barns, it was not all that hard to get some stunning shots. We also ventured for a wander in Heligan Gardens for some extra shots. Here are just a few of my favourites..
