We hadn’t met Helen and Kevan until their wedding day. Ricky had popped down and met with Helen’s lovely Mum Sue and had a quick tour of the church, a friends garden and a boat yard that led onto Pentewan beach. A plan was put in place and a chat with bride Helen on the phone and we were set to go! I loved the start of the day, it was just so very wonderfully Cornish. We popped into the village surf shop and picked up a key to the boat yard, so we could drive in as and when we needed to, we then drove to the church where all the neighbours had cleared their parking spaces for wedding guests, we left our car there and trekked up a steep hill with our cameras to Helens parents house to get some bridal prep shots. Helen was calm and so very lovely and her best friend made us feel so at ease, we cracked on with our job while they did hair and make-up chatting and watching guests arrive at the church which you could see from the bedroom window.
Ricky whipped off to get the boys and some family shots and then we met up again at the church. The service was fantastic, it made the guests laugh and cry and we all thought Father Mike was just fantastic!
We went to the beach, dropped the boat yard key off and onto the lovely Trenython Manor, which used to be the Bishop of Cornwall’s winter palace. This hotel is a real treat, it has only just started doing wedding again after having an 11 year break. Its so worth checking out if you are still in the planning stages of your venue. Its beautiful oak panelling and lovely terraces. Its rooms allow the wedding to flow just right with no turn around, the guests just seemed to wander downstairs for coffee, the cake was cut and the party started, it was… well perfect!
Helen looked amazing, her dress so elegant and she was so pretty. I loved the touches of her wearing her grandmothers ring and bracelet.
We so enjoyed this wedding, what a lovely family both Helen and Kevan have, and great friends. Helens brother Alan was the most amazing wedding co-ordinator, we want to give him a job of coming with us wherever we go to round up guests for photos and generally be an amazing help. Alan thank you!
