Over the summer I had the pleasure of taking wedding photographs at Carbis Bay Beach for Adrian and Kelly. They contacted me a couple of months before with the plan of having a very intimate wedding, and when I say intimate, I mean they asked me if I would be one of the witness’s and the taxi driver would be the other witness.
Adrian and Kelly came down on the train from London the night before, and we had a quick phone call to talk about ideas for photographs after the wedding ceremony.
I met the couple at Penzance registry office for the wedding ceremony and even found myself in front of the camera so Adrian & Kelly could have a photograph with the witnesses.
With the ceremony being held in Penzance it would be such a shame to waste the opportunity to have photographs with one of Cornwall’s iconic landmarks in the background; St Michaels Mount.
After St Michaels Mount we headed over for the wedding photographs at Carbis Bay beach, it was a beautiful day and the “light” reflection off the golden sand is amazing for photographs. Having shot a wedding at the Carbis Bay Hotel I knew exactly were to go.
We had a quick walk around the beach and even had a paddle in sea before heading back, so the guys could head for lunch.
It just goes to show that you don’t need to spend £1000’s for your wedding, Adrian and Kelly went for a morning swim and Kelly made her bouquet from wild flowers gathered from the Hayle sand dunes, tied together with a piece of twine.
As usual here is a selection of some of my favourites from wedding photographs at Carbis Bay Beach. Please feel free to share on social media, or leave a comment.
