The Magic of Cornwall: family fun in the sun

Unfortunately a family photo shoot is too often a stressful dreaded date on the annual calendar, involving uncomfortable Sunday best clothes and awkward poses. But it doesn’t have to be! I’ve rather fallen in love with relaxed Family Together Sessions, and can’t wait to start doing more down in Cornwall. Wouldn’t you rather capture moments together while on a family weekend away to one of the most beautiful places the UK has to offer? Let me do your family shoot in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and let’s make natural happy family memories to treasure together.

Rebecca & Craig | Wedding

It’s always such a pleasure to get to shoot at the magical Aynhoe Park and Rebecca & Craig’s wedding, which I’d been impatiently waiting for ever since their London engagement session, sure didn’t disappoint! The day started with Gustav and Lisa from Michael Van Clarke weaving their magic with hair and make-up, before Rebecca stepped into her Stephanie Allin gown and Jimmy Choo  heels. We then took a trip to the Little Gaddesden Church, Craig travelling in style in his Ferrari, in which he also drove his new wife back to the reception!

Back at Aynhoe, Wildabout Flowers had weaved some serious flowery magic, just check out that spectacular seating plan for example! Chloe Hannan from Absolute Taste was in charge of catering, while the beautiful cake was by Jamie Bakes Cakes. Rebecca & Craig met in a ski resort in Switzerland 9 years ago, and since then, thanks to Craig’s passion for property, they have lived in a ridiculous amount of homes and so they named the tables after each of the roads. The understated and classy stationary was designed by Emily & Jo.

There are a gazillion pictures below as I found it hard to let go of any of the lovely moments (or deer, or crocodiles or giraffes…). But at least you know what you’ll be doing this weekend!

Thank you Rebecca & Craig for having us along for the ride, your day was simply gorgeous and I wish you all the best in your life together! x

The magic of Cornwall: cliff-top weddings by the sea

Over the years I’ve been so lucky to return to Cornwall over and over again for some of my favourite weddings, I have to pinch myself when I think that I will be living there permanently, and that these sort of affairs will be ‘the norm’! Cornwall offers many spectacular wedding venues with stunning sea views,  gorgeous beach receptions, and cliff top wedding options like Trevose Head, which is my idea of wedding paradise. Here are some of my favourite memories from Cornish weddings.

The magic of Cornwall: plan a romantic getaway

As I’m getting closer to the BIG MOVE over to Cornwall (woop!), I thought I’d share some of my recommendations for romantic getaways. Whether you’re planning an engagement, pre-wedding or anniversary shoot, you couldn’t ask for a prettier setting than the quintessentially British seaside town of Padstow, or the wild and rugged coastline around Newquay, with its multiple beaches, such as Watergate Bay, which is the perfect place to stay if one or both of you would like to try your hand at surfing!

Cornwall is a stunning county, set on a peninsula completely surrounded by the sea, with a dramatic coastline, stunning cliff-tops, miles of sandy beaches and picturesque fishing harbours.  It offers so many things for a perfect couple’s getaway –  from the art scene to the food scene, walking trails, water-sports and amazing Celtic history. It’s also easy to reach by air with its own airport and regular flights from London and other European cities (with Exeter airport only a short drive away with even more flight destinations), or by train and car.

My recommendations for romantic places to stay in the north Cornwall area (where I’ll be based) include:

Watergate Bay Hotel
Perfect for a beach holiday, especially for keen surfers – this hotel offers a little bit of everything for everyone.  Be active or just chill and enjoy – everything is designed to offer you the best of Cornish hospitality.

Scarlet Hotel
Cornwall’s escape for adults only, offering luxurious rooms each with their own individual outside space, is your chance to get away to for a private romantic break.  Stunning views of gardens, cliffs, sea and sky, great food at the Scarlet restaurant and the in house Spa treatments on offer will go a long way to recharging your batteries.

Self catering holiday homes with that extra touch help you make the most of your break away.  Pre-order groceries for your holiday and arrive to everything packed away and ready for you.

Fistral Beach Hotel
Breath-taking cliff top views from luxurious rooms with your choice of added extras to make that special occasion just that little bit extra special.  Check out the special break packages on offer and book your seaside adventure now.

No matter what the occasion is, it’s all about the two of you together, focusing on one another and celebrating your love.

Kerstin & Dan | Together

Kerstin & Dan are from Chicago, where they are getting married later this year, but as they are currently based in London with their work, they wanted to capture their engagement session on the streets of their current home. We so very nearly rescheduled this shoot due to some horrendous weather, but I’m so glad we decided to risk it, as the weather turned lovely pretty much in perfect timing for our session! I love London in the spring, and thoroughly enjoyed my time with Kerstin & Dan.
