We met Debs and Matt last year and were so pleased that they choose KISS Photography to cover their wedding day as they were such a lovely pair we wanted to be part of their day.
Ricky went to just the end of our road to capture Matt and the lads getting ready in what will become the honeymoon apartment and spent a fun morning with them, while I joined Debs and her best friends at The Harbour Hotel. Debs was relaxed and calm and just her lovely self, and it was a pleasure to spend the morning with such a wonderfully relaxed bride. Her ‘maids’ were just as relaxed and fun and the morning went off perfectly then her parents came up and the setting was complete.
When I saw Debs in her dress, I just thought Marilyn Monroe! she looked blooming stunning ! The fabric was this fabulous Georgette fabric and the neck line had this wonderful 1950’s feel to it, add to that a bit of sparkle and some shoes to die for and there you have it, one super sexy bride ! (and to top it all off Debs was ready… early… ! WOW ! and I left her to drink pink champagne with her parents and friends and have a moment)
The service was wonderful, with laughter and tears, then it was off to the beach with the family and friends.
They wanted fun, they wanted unusual group shots, they were up for having a ball… so we did .
The Harbour Hotel was looking wonderful and the beach today was just dreamy so the setting was complete for the beach themed wedding. Candle lit tables, St.Ives street names, little starfish and a wonderful sea blue was the colour theme. Debs family have this wonderful connection to Cornwall, they are one of those families that come back year after year after year, they are now more local than the locals, know more about Cornwall than we do, and as Debs Dad said in his speech”St.Ives is in Deb’s blood “( I just wanted to cry when he said that)
Matt’s speech rounded up how he felt about Debs and was heartfelt and honest and got the whole room choked. He just loves her…. to bits ! The evening reception was all about fun, chocolate fountain’s Baileys fountain with chocolate cups, sweeties. A full on dance show by Debs and her Dad, which wowed the crowd and you know they are going to be partying big time tonight !
We do need to say our thanks, firstly to the couple, you were lovely and a very very special couple, made for each other in every way, you made our day today. Thankyou for looking after us, and we thank The Harbour Hotel for all their input in the day, and making everything run smoothly for us as well as Debs and Matt. Thank you to the friends and family who made our day so easy, and especially to Matt’s mates who went along with all the antics on the beach today, and did exactly what they were told even through they thought we had lost the plot ! Just wait to you see the final result, you will be well impressed !
Debs and Matt, what can we say? we know we will be seeing you around St.Ives for years to come. We wish you years of smiles and happiness. You are stars x
