If you follow my blog and photography, you’ll know how much I adore Polhawn Fort, a cliff top fort nestled amongst the Cornish coast. I’m lucky to be often found at this beautiful venue, as a HUGE proportion of my weddings take place here. It’s a venue I could never tire of, and inspiration never runs stale, as one of the UK’s most romantic venues it’s hard not to get caught in it’s magic each and every time.
Claire and Keith chose to get married at the beautiful St Pancras Church at Widecombe in the Moor, a gorgeous Church in the midst of the Dartmoor Countryside, after the service we couldn’t resist the opportunity to make the most of the scenery.
Back at Polhawn Fort, it was great to be met by one of my favourite chefs Richard McGeowan of Couchs Catering, as a big foodie, Richard’s menu’s never disappoint.
I adored the fact that Claire and Keith had a falconry display during the canapés, this brought a lot of smiles and laughter to their guests faces. I always think it’s a splendid idea to have some form of “entertainment”, during this time, as it’s a great opportunity for the couple to spend some time together (and for me to tag along discreetly) and capture those beautiful portraits together, it’s hard to get caught up greeting guests all day and to have that time to reflect in those first few hours as a married couple, always creates some stunning images with little direction. Just like Claire and Keith’s photographs (below) on Polhawn Fort’s secluded cove.
It was a pleasure to be Claire and Keith’s photographer, I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple, and their son Leo was an absolute angel.
