St Mawes Wedding Photographer
‘Brian, the photos are absolutely incredible, thankyou so much. You have completely captured how much the sea and the scenery in Cornwall mean to us. There is something that gets right to our souls about the landscape there’.
Nicola & Pete got married last summer at Lamorran Gardens in St Mawes and nearby Towan Beach for the wedding celebrations. This little part of Cornwall is absolutely stunning and a great location to be a St Mawes Wedding Photographer.
From the moment that I met Nicola & Pete, I knew that their wedding was going to be pretty special. Their vision for the day didn’t conform to the usual wedding tradition and I love a wedding that wants to break the rules…
Getting ready at separate locations? Nah.
Wedding breakfast? How about we just all go to the beach.
First dance? Absolutely not!
Nicola & Pete wanted to embrace the outdoors and Cornish landscape, but as we all know the British weather can be a little unpredictable! So this was always going to be a risk. From the start Nicola said ‘It won’t rain on our wedding day’, and she was right, it didn’t! It actually turned out to be the most perfect summers day and their wedding dream became reality!
I joined Nicola & Pete as they got ready at a cottage in St Mawes, just a short walk from Lamorran Gardens.
At the gardens, they had their beautiful ceremony in ‘the Cupola’ which overlooks Falmouth Bay & St Anthonys Lighthouse. A few glasses of champagne to toast the wedding then it was off to Towan Beach.
This was easily the most fun part of the day. It’s not often that I get to shoot a wedding barefoot with the sand between my toes, but that’s what this day was about. Everyone embraced the beautiful weather and sunshine. As we grabbed a few shots on the rocks, friends & family were splashing about in the surf. Even Nicola decided to get her feet wet, even on the rocks and in her wedding dress.
This really was one of the best weddings that I’ve ever got to shoot. Congratulations Nicola & Pete and thankyou for trusting me to capture the vision that you had for your wedding!
Nicola & Pete chose my Half Day Plus Package which ‘usually’ covers wedding photography from the ceremony to the first dance. Being Nicola & Pete’s St Mawes Wedding Photographer, they tailored the half day package to suit their requirements. As you can see from the pictures their day was unique to them!
