Spring is now in full swing and its busy here at Kiss Photography. We also know from experience soon the hotels will not be busy with lots of wedding, very soon they will be busy with holiday guests. So we took a few days out during the week last week and today to have quick meetings with the wedding coordinators to finalize everything we as wedding photographers need to know, before everybody gets too busy.
I like this part of the job as you get a nice feeling of total preparation before the big day. If its a venue we haven’t worked at before this is imperative. But also with the bigger hotels, they have so many different rooms that weddings can be held in, its nice to have a quick recce before hand so there are no surprises on the day. Also hotels seemed to be getting make-overs on a yearly basis, so sometimes the whole place can look completely different from one wedding to the next. It also gives us the chance to find the perfect spots for photos, have a chat about what we want to achieve artistically and what the bride and groom have specified they want. Sometimes in very dark places we like to do a quick camera test, so there are no surprises on the day.
All this preparation means the perfect wedding album photographs for the bride and groom.
Today we zoomed over to St.Mawes and the lovely Hotel Tresanton. The sun was shining and it was such a pretty drive from St.Ives, there was lots of overhanging trees forming archways over the twisty roads and when we reached St.Mawes, it was wonderful to see the dappled sun dancing over the sea. Very different from our last time there, it was pouring down then!
The terrace at Hotel Tresanton was filled with guests enjoying morning coffee looking out over the water. Ricky had a look round with the hotel manager while i scouted the beach and the walk down, I must find out from the bride if she fancies it (weather pending of course) in her dress, it was a little on the steep side if your in killer heels. I also took some test shots of good view points if they didn’t fancy going to the waters edge, and was happy with what I got. Ricky on the other hand found some lovely places inside to take photos if the weather is not on our side on the day.
Then it was off to Truro for another wedding meeting and we took The King Harry Ferry over, which was fun, we weren’t sure how much time it did save as we had to wait the full 20 mins, but it was nice, then back to St.Ives for a appointment with a bride and Groom. A full day, but a lot of boxes ticked.
