Yesterdays wedding was a proper country Cornish wedding and it was just perfect!
We arrived at Bryony’s parents house in St.Levan, where Bryony and her 4 siblings grew up, the house was full and yet calm. Bridesmaids getting ready, dresses going on, grandchildren running in and out, it was lovely!
Bryony looked stunning in her amazing dress, the lace detail was incredible. A gold Rolls Royce took her to the beautiful church in St.Levan, where we were devastated to learn from the vicar that no photography whatsoever was allowed. I love the moments of the rings being exchanged and the first kiss and the emotion, but we have to respect the wishes of the church so we sat outside in the sunshine as the church was full to bursting with friends and family.
Bryony and Richard were so happy when they walked out as man and wife and we took some family shots at the church before they went to Penberth beach for photos. This place was very important to the brides side of the family as her fathers fishing boat is moored there, he has fished there for all his life, and his father too. I love it when we get an insight into the family history and can incorporate it into the wedding photos. This was perfect, as we drove up we saw various friends of the couple that live in the area popping home and they waved us on.
The wedding reception was held in a marquee on the family’s land, a beautiful valley, where Bryony’s father spends his days tending and planting trees and has had a huge project to the build up to the wedding making the land perfect to hold the biggest party this quite corner has ever seen. It was lovely watching the guests arrive down a little lane and climbing over the boundary rocks to enter the clearing. Bryony’s father told us how he played there as a small child as did his children. It was a very special place held dear to the family and will become even more special now this occasion has taken place. The family was all so kind to us and made our day lovely, Bryony’s Mum especially wonderful giving me insect repellent as soon as I arrived so we wouldn’t get bitten!
I loved all the grandchildren in their Cornish kilts, I loved the beautiful pots of hydrangeas everywhere, and the tress with hanging wooden hearts, I loved the way the sun shone through the trees giving the valley a very special light.
I loved this wedding!
We left as the band struck up and the dancing began, the wine was flowing and the candles lit on the tables. What a special time. Richard and Bryony enjoy this amazing year, every moment. All the best! x
