BRIGITTE AND DANIEL
CARBIS BAY HOTEL, ST IVES
_______________With wedding season in full flow, it’s been a little while since we’ve blogged a wedding, so this is a throw back to April of this year, at the gorgeous Carbis Bay Hotel, a simply wonderful place for any Cornwall Wedding Photographer.
Carbis Bay Hotel is one of those venues that offers the entire package, the top service accommodation, the exceptionally well put together wedding package, the beautiful sea views and of course, what every Bride and Groom should have at a beachside wedding, a private beach.
I arrived bright and early on Brigitte and Daniel’s wedding day, only to be greeted by lots of smiles and blue skies. I think April is such a lovely time to get married, the chill of winter has long left the air, and the glimmer of Summer is slowly creeping in, April can give such a huge variety of weather conditions, often on the same day, meaning lots of different photographic opportunities and challenges. For Brigitte and Dan’s wedding, we were blessed with nothing but sunshine.
Brigitte and Dan held their ceremony in the conservatory, overlooking the beautiful white sand beach – guests travelling from afar would be mistaken for thinking we were abroad.
I arrived in the ceremony room, to catch Dan looking apprehensive yet excited, I love this moment in a wedding, where time stands still for the Groom whilst wonder fills his mind.
Their service was lovely, with several readings full of emotion…. Despite what the little fella in the next shot thought!
After the service, guests were treated to an array of canapes and Cornish fizz, we took some time to visit the beach – being April, the crowds had yet to form (another reason I adore this time of year!), and got some fun shots of them playing on the beach. Who can resist a splash in the sea in such sunshine?
The day seemed to really fly by, and after some speeches and music, it was time for me to leave. I thoroughly enjoyed Brigitte and Dan’s day, it was great to see Wheal Sara Flowers and Cornish Candy Carts there also.
Oh, I simply can’t forgot to mention one of my favourite all time bouquet tosses ever!! The next few pictures really make me smile!!
Brigitte and Daniel, I wish you all the VERY best for your future as Mr and Mrs Clee, you were both a joy to photograph, and I thank you for choosing me to be your Carbis Bay wedding photographer.
