Ben & Morwenna chose me to photograph their wedding at the Atlantic Hotel after meeting them at the Hall for Cornwall Wedding Fayre. My day started at the farm of Morwenna’s parents in St Allen. While the hair and makeup were being done I photographed the dress and some of the details before moving back in to capture everybody looking at their best. Morwenna’s father had prepared a cart which he restored and painted for the wedding. It was hooked up to his gleaming vintage tractor which he takes to steam rally shows. Luckily the church was only a mile down the road so it didn’t have to travel too far.
Ben being a dairy farmer, there were 2 big milk churns, beautifully decorated with flowers, at the entrance to St Allen Church which is a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony. Ben and Morwenna were greeted by their friends who gave them a guard of honour with pitch forks and milking coats and hats.
Wedding at the Atlantic Hotel
After the church service we popped back to the farm so that the happy couple could exchange the tractor for something a little quicker to take them to Newquay. When at the farm we made use of the garden of Morwenna’s Gran to take some quick photos before heading off to Little Fistral in Newquay.
We arrived at the Atlantic for the start of the wedding breakfast which was followed by the speeches and cake cutting. We then moved out to the lawn overlooking the headland for the big group photos, and to allow the hotel to prepare the room for the evening guests to arrive. I had never done a shoot a wedding the Atlantic Hotel before but it proved to be a stunning wedding venue with loads of great places to take photographs.
