A few weeks ago I headed as far South West as I had ever been for a Wedding. St Hilary Church and Cape Cornwall Golf Club near St Just were the settings for what turned out to be a glorious October Wedding. I had been looking forward to this wedding for a while, its not often I photograph weddings so close to home (only an hour and half in the car), and I knew from the pre shoot with Jeremy and Beth that they would make my job easy.
The morning started off for me at a fairly late 10am at the Brides house where I set about my normal routine of documenting just about everything that happens. I like to arrive as everything starts in the morning, rather than coming in half way through make-up or hair. Once I’m there, I’m around if needed, but more importantly the family and bridal party can get use to me being around them, so that once they are nearly ready, they are comfortable having a couple of cameras around.
I had met up with Jeremy and Beth the day before the wedding at Cape Cornwall and we spent about an hour dry walking the day at the Golf Club for the reception and recapping what we had planned for the Church at St Hilary on the pre wedding shoot. The photos that you will see below of the Bride & Groom together were all captured when time would of otherwise been wasted. It is simple planning beforehand that led us to find less than a total of 10 minutes throughout the day to shoot a few, and I hope you will agree, more adventurous and stylised pictures than what many other wedding photographers are producing.
A big thank you to the wedding co-ordinator at Cape Cornwall who was very organised, which always helps, and to the staff who served up a lovely roast meal for us all. Most of all a big thank you and congratulations to Mr & Mrs Mepham. Below is a small selection of the 450+ pictures that the couple have received.
Oh and I though the magician arranged by the parents as a surprise to the couple was a great touch and went down as well with the Bride & Groom as it did with the kids.
