Wedding at The Falmouth Hotel
Michael & Hannah
Ceremony | St Georges Church, Truro
Reception | The Falmouth Hotel
Wedding Photographer Cornwall |Paul Keppel
Michael and Hannah’s wedding at the Falmouth Hotel was met with beautiful sunshine throughout the day. This was my first wedding at the Hotel due to Michael and Hannah originally booking the Falmouth Beach Hotel before it sadly burnt down.
The day started at Hannah’s parents’ house which is a stone’s throw from St George’s church where they were due to get married. The house was divided into make up room, hair room and a ‘Do not enter’ which is where Hannah was keeping her dress a secret with only herself and her mum having seen it.
The ceremony was beautiful, and while the signing of the register was taking place Michael’s sister and friend took stage at the front and sang a couple of operatic songs.
The week before the wedding l I met Michael and Hannah to go through the time line of the day and to see what time we had for photographs. They both had their hearts set on heading to Gyllyngvase Beach and Castle beach for some photographs. To allow us to use the time wisely I drove to the locations the day before the wedding to explore some backdrops. On driving back to the hotel the Princess Pavilions looked amazing with the daffodils out in full bloom so I suggested that this would be a great location for some photographs.
I was informed by Hannah the day before the wedding that they would be having a ‘bouncy castle’ on the lawn of the Falmouth hotel, not just for the kids mind you, the adults could join in on the fun too.
With some humorous and emotional speeches by Hannah’s Dad, Michael and his two best men, this led to a surprise for Hannah as she loves magic. Her father arranged for a magician to perform from table to table when the function room was converted into a dancefloor for the evening’s entertainment.
A huge exploding balloon was organised for the first dance and then we quickly headed on to the lawn of the hotel to capture a shot to finish the wedding album. I just managed to get the last bit of fading light with the help of the best man who is also a photographer.
As usual here is a selection of some of my favourites from Michael and Hannah’s wedding at The Falmouth Hotel. Please feel free to share on social media or leave a comment.
