Who could pass on the opportunity to photograph a wedding by the sea in Cornwall?
We met Katie & Jack when we photographed Katie’s sister’s wedding last year in Sheffield. Katie’s family often went on holiday to Carbis Bay near St Ives in Cornwall when she was a child and when she saw someone getting married in Carbis Bay Hotel she announced that she would be married there one day. We joined Katie and her family excitedly getting ready in a caravan park nearby, Katie’s beautiful princess dress took up a lot of room with its many layers! After some photos looking out to sea we descended on Carbis Bay Hotel for the wedding, the sun streamed in through the conservatory during the ceremony.
Despite a bit of drizzle Katie & Jack ventured onto the beach for some photos, taking us by surprise Katie and her sister Natalie set off at quite a sprint for a much deserved paddle!
Katie’s reception room looked stunning with gorgeous pink details, the speeches that followed were both emotional and funny showing just how close both families are. The evening reception kicked off with a singer who got everyone up dancing and involved the families children forming a small reggae band!
We both feel privileged to share Katie & Jack’s special day and feel we know their family very well now, enough to join in the singing on the way to the ceremony!
We wish you every happiness for the future and many more holidays by the sea!
