On a beautiful sunny morning Kiss photography had the utmost pleasure of photographing Hannah and Tims wedding at the amazing Lanhydrock Church. It was a perfect setting for this lovely couple to tie the knot, an amazing church with such a lovely vicar conducting the service and the afternoon sunshine streaming in and just knowing we had full access to the stunning formal gardens after, was pretty much the icing on the cake.
I have to say, I do expect a bride to be happy on her wedding day, it goes without saying, but Hannah was beaming. She absolutely shone as she entered the church. There’s an expression of ‘a smile lighting up a room’ well hers really did. And as Tim turned to look at his beautiful bride, his expression was incredible, he managed to combine so many emotions in one; he was in awe, he was proud,in love and very emotional!
The church service was just wonderful and as the bride and groom stepped outside I had that wonderful moment of feeling like I had stepped into another era. The Lanhydrock estate is a perfect wedding backdrop for a photographer, so many fantastic doorways, immaculate lawns and amazing architecture. We had arrived very early for this wedding as we knew we needed the time to wander, soak it all in and be totally inspired before the wedding party arrived, there’s no time for gazing once the wedding is underway, but here you must gaze, just for a few moments, it would be terribly rude not to !
Hannah and Tim were a total joy to spend the afternoon with, such a relaxed couple and we had fun exploring the ground’s with them. One of my favourite moments was a kiss in a doorway, Hannah looking so glamorous in her fitted swathed dress, the sunlight catching the sequins and diamanté on the bodice and skirt, Tim looking like the handsome beau who had swept her off her feet, and a little girl wandered by and said ” Mummy, what ARE they doing !!!!!!” Hannah retorted with “and at a National Trust Property as well!”
The vintage car drove the couple to the reception venue Trevenna Barns, where we stopped on the Moors to take some more photographs. The guests were all sipping Pimms in the gardens when the car pulled up, it was lovely. I love Trevenna Barns, the peaceful setting, the perfect attention to detail and family run. The room looked fantastic awash with bunting and deep orange and red autumn coloured flowers.
We left the guests sipping champagne, everybody happy, relaxed and ready to enjoy the rest of the evening.
