Knightor Winery Wedding | Sue & Shaun
As a wedding photographer in Cornwall, I’ve been incredibly lucky to photograph weddings at some of the wonderful venues in the county. Like when I went to Knightor Winery to document Sue & Shaun’s Wedding.
Knightor is a timelessly Cornish venue and as the name suggests, a working winery. It is situated not too far from St Austell and close to one of my other favourite wedding & live music venues in Cornwall, the Eden Project.
Knightor Winery | Sue & Shaun
Sue first met Shaun at the Hewas Inn, after Shaun had unexpectedly found himself living temporarily in the village of Sticker. A slight contrast to Romford in Essex. He used to sit with his elbows on the bar and a pint in front of him with an aura of ‘do not approach’ radiating from him. Sue took up the challenge to get him to speak and eventually it worked!
They wanted a laid back, less formal, country feel for our wedding and Knightor Winery was their perfect wedding venue. Both said that it was lovely to have all their friends and family together in the same place. And having her eldest son fly back from Australia to walk her down the ceremony for Sue was fantastic.
Shaun & Sue married in Knightor’s ‘Threshing Barn’ and with it being such a beautiful day they celebrated in the courtyard. We later found some time to head to the vineyard with them to get some portrait shots.
It was also great to see a lot of familiar faces as I’d photographed Shaun’s sisters wedding about five years ago. Their Hotel California Wedding also featured on my blog.
