A year ago Kiss Photography photographed a wonderful couple on Porthmeor beach in St.Ives …………

Today that couple got married in a beautiful setting at The St Ives Harbour Hotel looking out over Porthminister beach in St.Ives.

Michelle and Steve congratulations !

Michelle Italian/American and Steve a Cornish lad decided that the sea was where they needed to be for their special day. Their engagement shoot was a morning on a deserted beach and today the wedding had to be all about the sea. The sea is Michelle’s passion, it calms her and makes her happy and she wanted to have that wedding on the beach in St.Ives. I think this is the closest you can get. The Harbour Hotel wedding rooms have the most amazing outlook to sea.

We arrived to find Michelle already looking beautiful having her make up done with a fairytale dress hanging up behind her. Her family had flown in from the states, there was a buzz of excitement everywhere and Michelle was calm and serene.

The Harbour Hotel was awash with pink rose petals and the bride held a bouquet of pink roses, the style was beautiful and romantic.

After a lovely service the guests drank champagne and ate canapés, some came to the beach with us alongside the bride and groom and the sun shone for us. Steve and Michelle were just so sweet and so lovely and just wonderful to be around. Porthminister beach wasn’t as busy as we were expecting, so that was perfect too ! The day was a dream ! and Michelle’s dress was delightful, when she walked up the beach and the breeze took it…. stunning !

Michelle had some lovely thoughtful touches and my favourite was that she and Steve collected sand from the beach to keep in a beautiful bottle as a memory forever.

Wishing them a life full of beaches and smiles ! x
