A Game of Two Halves - Part One

Happy New Year!  I love this time of year where most photographers do a little round up of the last 12 months, and it's one of my favourite things to do.  It's such a wonderful feeling to take time to reflect on the weddings from the last year and gather together a selection of moments in gratitude for the celebrations we were lucky enough to capture.  However, as I still have 10 weddings to edit, I'm doing my summary in two parts.

First up, weddings from January to June.  Although most venues are some distance from home now, the first half of the year covered a fair few extra miles, with ceremonies not just all over England, but 2 in Scotland and 1 in France and 1 in Italy too!  It also made me realise I'm woefully behind in blogging, and there are some amazing weddings here I hope to blog more of soon too. Until then though, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the amazing first half of 2016 that we were privileged enough to be part of!

We were so happy to return to some of our favourite venues, like East Quay in Whitstable, the Artist Beach House in Whitstable and the fairy tale chateau in France.  We discovered some new favourite venues, like Treworgey Cottages in Looe and Monachyle Mhor in Scotland.   We also got to work with the lovely Jenny Wren again at Fowey Hall Hotel, and captured our first Cornwall elopement, and that's all in the first 6 months of the year!  

Part 2 and our film collaboration with Story Catchers coming soon!  

Cornwall Wedding Photographer

Where have the last two months gone? How is it November already? How am I still editing a wedding from July?

I guess being a Cornwall wedding photographer who captures 98% of their weddings out of county means a fair amount of time is lost on the road.  Still, I wouldn't swap the days we have captured for anything else.

Thank you lovely, gorgeous patient couples. I know you must be so eager and keen to relive your fabulous and wonderful day, and I promise I will get your images to you as soon as I can. In the meantime though, here’s a little taster of what the last couple of months has looked like, with ahhmazing weddings in Scotland, a return to our favourites, The Asylum and The Londesborough in London, some new favourites with The Fazeley Studios in Birmingham, One Friendly Place in London, and a wonderful mayhemic Cornwall wedding at Bocconoc House! Not forgetting the Battersea bandstand wedding, a intimate wedding on Porthreas Cove and a return to the gorgeousHampton Court House too.

Newquay Pre-Wedding Shoot

I know it’s a lot to ask when we live on the edge of the country but, where possible, we always encourage couples to take us up on the complimentary pre-wedding shoot in Newquay if they can. Granted, the weather in Newquay, or Cornwall for that matter, can never be guaranteed. But as my cheery Cam often quotes, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.” Plus we’ve sussed out a couple of caves where we can take refuge from the elements if need be, what more do you need?

We fit in pre-shoots all year round, and have have shot in all weather conditions (see here for some examples, as this post contains predominantly dry weather days) and honestly, so long as you dress appropriately and come with no expectations but to have a laugh – we can definitely guarantee that. Ultimately for us, it’s about the opportunity to know you (and for you to know us!) a little better, the pictures are just a happy bonus.

And, if you need any more convincing (I know I’m biased), I truly believe we live in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The Atlantic Ocean is the most spectacular and beautiful force of nature and if nothing else, I know she won’t disappoint you.
