Masquerade Pendennis Castle Wedding Photography | Yasmin & Ian

Wedding Venue | Pendennis Castle, Falmouth

When Ian and Yasmin booked me for their Pendennis Castle wedding photography I was delighted, not only because they are a fantastic couple who were an absolute pleasure to work with, but also, weddings at Pendennis Castle are simply stunning. The main feature of this occasion was that Ian and Yasmin had chosen to have a Masquerade Wedding, which I was very excited to photograph as this chance doesn’t arise every day.

The big day started very early to capture Yasmin’s preparations at her mother’s house in Carharrack. Pete, my second shooter for the day, was over with Ian photographing the setting up at the castle and barracks.

Once the bride and her bridesmaids were ready, I left just ahead of them, as Yasmin had organised to have two Shire horses pull a carriage (The Lizard Stallions) from Gyllyngvase Beach up to the castle. As this was the first time that Pendennis Castle had had a carriage go through the front gate, it was quite a unique moment. One thing I wasn’t expecting while standing in the middle of the entrance, poised to capture their grand arrival, was that the large horses needed to have some speed to get up the slope; so I had to jump out of the way pretty quickly to avoid getting run over!

After the ceremony, we went onto the chemise for a drinks reception and some group photographs. Due to the high vantage point of Pendennis Castle, we could see a monstrous black cloud making its way over to Falmouth, so we set off back for cover at the Royal Artillery Barracks. This is where Ian & Yasmin had kept their biggest secret under wraps as they had organised two of the biggest cannons to fire during the walk down from the castle.

Once the formalities of the meal were over it was time for the speeches and both Yasmin’s father and Ian delivered eloquently, with stories and funny anecdotes along the way. Ian’s two best men regaled stories of from school and serving in the Army together which had many people in fits of laugher and generally having a great time.

After the speeches, we headed outside as the dark clouds had since lifted and I  was able to capture some really nice photographs of the newlyweds. The weather had left us with a beautiful sunset and we took full advantage of the elevated height of the castle.

As usual, here is a selection of some of my Pendennis Castle Masquerade Wedding Photography.  Please feel free to share on social media, or leave a comment.
