Donna married Rob today at The Sacred Heart Church in St.Ives and onto the wonderful Carbis Bay Hotel for the wedding breakfast and reception.
We started our day with Donna and her fantastic family at the house they were all getting ready in. We arrived to an air of calm, everything going to plan, everybody getting ready or enjoying the sunshine in the garden. Today spring had truly sprung and Cornwall was showing off all its glory!
We enjoyed a lovely morning with Donna s close family, and I love this time with the bride, capturing all the details, the things happening and also getting to know everyone, and everyone was just so lovely.
The flowers arrived and they were so pretty, wild and natural and just perfect for the sunny day we were having. At the same moment the bridesmaids appeared in their lemon dresses, there were touches of colour all around and it just summed up the day!
Strawberry Leisure camper van arrived with the roof down, and I decided summer had really arrived!
Donna looked a million dollars, the beaded dress, the long veil and the fab hair-band! Just perfect. A photograph that was a must was her Granddad seeing the first look and we were honoured to witness this and capture this and then leave and give them a moment. Such an amazing morning filled with emotion and happy memories.
The church service was just lovely and then there was a whistle stop tour of St.Ives town with the happy couple in the camper.
The wedding theme was all about St.Ives and so as we were on a tour of the town we used the opportunity to get some of our shots on the ‘Island’ a St.Ives land mark and then the chapel that is know and loved by the locals. We ended up back at Carbis bay beach where the whole wedding party came down to the beach for photos. The sun was still shining and I managed to grab an ice cream for the happy couple ( and even the seagulls played the game and i still had the ice cream when I made it back down with them)
The Carbis Bay hotel looked as wonderful as ever (a special mention at this time must go to the wonderful wedding co-ordinator Victoria) and the wedding cake By Cake By Design was jaw dropping in detail. The guests all happy, the photos gorgeous!
Donna and Rob, you guys were incredible and we absolutely loved loved loved being part of your day. You were so chilled, so lovely and both looked amazing! ( we were asked countless times today, is this a photo shoot ? )
Kiss Photography wish this beautiful pair love and laughter forever X
