Weddings at The Barn at Pengelly, Cornwall

For a local Cornwall wedding photographer, The Barn at Pengelly is a dream location and I was so pleased to be one of the first to photograph this brand new space.

As a local, experienced Cornwall wedding photographer, I’m a pro at slipping my couples away unnoticed for some awesome shots in a quiet bay, meadow or woodland, only a local would know. If you get married at Pengelly, you will certainly have your pick of amazing backdrops for your wedding photos.

Paul was amazing throughout our whole journey. He was great at communicating, initially talking us through what our wedding schedule may look like- thank goodness as we hadn’t a clue! On the day was early and ready to capture those getting ready moments! He really is a fountain of wedding knowledge.

The photos he captured on the day were incredible, he had scoped out potential shoot areas for us which included walking through a corn field.. so be prepared brides. haha
