CARBIS BAY HOTEL AND ESTATE
We are so lucky to live just around the corner of the beautiful Carbis Bay Estate, which gives us the opportunity to photograph here frequently. Carbis Bay offers the highest level of service in its stunning location that makes it one of the top UK wedding venues with a wide variety of facilities and service of the highest standards. Having used the hotel personally for our own wedding a few years back, our daughters birthday in 2018 and regularly for coffee and cake (our favourite table being on at the edge of the upper deck in the beach club, if you wait patiently then sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to see some seals or a pod of dolphin), we can fully vouch for how amazing this venue is.
It is therefore no wonder that the Carbis Bay is one of the most sought after wedding locations in the South West of England. From a wedding photography perspective, this is a Cornwall wedding photographers dream. There are twelve separate areas of the estate which are licensed for ceremonies, from classic to quirky, small and intimate to grand and glam, weddings are expertly tailored to every couple’s precise wishes.
The mixture of natural light combined with the turquoise waters and golden sands provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography. Using our award winning reportage style, you can be sure your wedding day tell the story of your day perfectly. There are an array of options for you on site to choose from for your morning preparations, the estate’s new beach lodges are ever so desirable with the seaside chic decor, floor to ceiling windows and private sun decks. Which ever option you choose, having the award winning C-Bay Spa onsite gives you the perfect option for all that pre wedding pampering.
One thing I think is truly magical about this venue, is the stunning 25 acre blue flag beach. As the sun dips behind St Ives you are often blessed with a sky full of dramatic colour, this “golden hour” of light gives the beach a breathtaking glow and results in some really captivating photographs.
