Capturing Candid Groom Preparation Photography Cornwall & Devon

Capturing the bride and grooms preparations on the wedding day is really important as its part of the wedding day story.Blending in with the wedding party capturing the emotions and the candid photos is priceless. I love seeing the happy couples faces when i show them their wedding photographs, as they were both consumed in the day, so when they see the whole story it brings all the hapiness and tears flooding back.

I was asked to photograph the wedding for Danielle & Joshua at the Roman Catholic Holy Trinity Church, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.Chipping Norton is renowned for the beautiful Limestone buildings and the Holy Trinity Church is no exception. The church is just beautiful, the upstairs gallery makes the perfect location for group photography after the wedding ceremony.The reception was then in Moreton-in-Marsh at the Manor House Hotel, the perfect venue for a wedding reception in the Cotswolds.

Mothering Law, Mother of the Bride Wedding Photography Cornwall

Mothering laws are normally promonant characters, some think of them as scary :-) but that they generally help run the wedding and making it such a special day for the whole family, this is my favourite photo that just captures the whole demeanor of her.

Pendennis Castle Wedding Cornwall

Second camera shooter for James & Beth's wedding ceremony in the atmospheric surroundings of the circular Keep at Pendennis castle in Falmouth, Cornwall. Steeped in history, crossing over the stone bridge, through the ancient arched Tudor portcullis, following through into the lower gun room.

The gun room is lined with wooden benches, barrels of gunpowder (empty) or i hope so ;-), tapestries hanging and all lite with beautiful candles and tea lights, a magical historic setting for a wedding ceremony in Cornwall.

Reception was then held at the Alverton in Truro, Cornwall. Weddings at The Alverton are simply stunning. From the flagstoned terrace and the manicured grounds to the breathtaking Great Hall and delicious food,
