What a fun-filled wedding at Knightor Winery this was. I thought this could be quite a lively wedding, what with Matt being very well known on the Cornish rugby scene. At our meeting a couple of days before the wedding they said Bingo would be played after the wedding breakfast (not really the normal thing I would have associated with a rugby crowd and a wedding)!
But I have to say it made it great fun, with the prizes (blow-up musical instruments) that lead everybody dancing on the tables and chairs, jumping up and down and singing at the top of their voices, I kid you not that you could feel the floor moving…. I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story. It was such a please to photograph this wedding.
As usual, here is a selection of favourite from their a wedding at Knightor Winery. Please feel free to share on social media, or leave a comment.
How did you first meet?
We first met in a group of friends and blossomed from there.
Please describe the wedding proposal in Cornwall?
It was on Matt’s birthday.- a walk with the dogs on Perranporth beach ( the rings were sandcastle with sand from Perranporth). A place where is close to our hearts as our dogs love the beach and the picturesque views are mesmerising.
The dress – where did you find it, and what was it like? Who did you take with you dress shopping and how did you find the whole experience?
Ellie found her dress online-she always knew she didn’t want anything to princessey. She loved her bridesmaid dresses so much she brought the same but in white.
