This summer has been really busy for me which is great, but has meant I have got a bit backlogged in writing my blog. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to photograph this wedding at the Watergate Bay Hotel, near Newquay in Cornwall for Sarah and James and took my good friend Martyn along with me to capture some additional candid moments.


This was a special wedding for me personally as some of my family were going to be there. Watergate Bay is a popular haven for surfers and the groom is one of them. We arrived the day before the wedding to have a good look around and also did an engagement shoot with the couple.


Sarah and James wanted a lot of casual and natural shots on their day as opposed to lots of formally posed shots. The morning of the wedding was perfect, blue skies, warm and the groom and his friend went for an early morning surf!

Martyn entertained the guys whilst I went to the salon… he even waded into the sea up to his waist to get some of the action shots!


The salon was a short drive away and I captured the girls having their hair done before returning to the hotel for the make-up.

The ceremony took place in the function room at the hotel overlooking the bay, amazing views!


After the ceremony we popped outside into the sunshine for a couple of group photographs.

After some aperitifs it was then time for the bride and grooms romantic shoot using the beach and hotel.


The beach made a great backdrop for wedding photographs.

The couple had asked for some special shots on the day including a sunglasses reflection shot.


We did a few more shots on the beach before heading back to the hotel.

Another special shot by request was this one of the bride in her huge bath over looking the bay!


It was then time for the meal and some more candid shots.

There was just time for the cutting of the cake and some shots of the first dance before we made the trip home.

Watergate Bay certainly does get some amazing sunsets, heres a shot of the couple and friends making shapes in the sunlight. If you would like me to photograph your wedding then please do get in touch.
