Kiss Photography were back photographing a wedding again at the lovely Tregenna Castle last week. Laura and Maceo got married on one of our hottest days ever. This stylish black and white wedding was set off perfectly in Tregenna Castles stunning grounds. Of course due to it being such a scorcher the wedding was held in the beautiful gardens of this amazing estate. We spent the morning with Laura and her fab friends and lovely Mum. Laura was chilled, happy and very calm. Her hair was styled by the fantastic Sarah Veal based in Tregenna Castle and she looked the height of elegance.
The service was just amazing with a perfect balance of laughter and tears. I loved the smiles Laura gave to her new husband throughout the whole service, and we got some stunning shots.

After the service the wedding guests mingled on the lawns of the castle and ate some fantastic canapés and the mini fish and chip cones went down a treat!

We headed to Porthminister beach with the bride and groom, and I have never know the beach to be so very hot, but this cool chilled out couple took it all in their stride and we had such a fun time. Laura and Mace, hats off to you both, it was boiling and you guys just shone! I love the shot of Laura taking off her shoe by Porthminister beach cafe, she reminds me of a 1950′s movie star in this one.

The reception at Tregenna was fab and we had a fun photoshoot with Laura and her beautiful bridesmaids after the meal then snuck off to the walled gardens for a few more bride and groom shots in the cooler evening time.

I loved these two, such a wonderful pair, so very much in love and just so lovely to be around. Thankyou so much for your lovely email, I am glad you felt you were being photographed by friends as we both felt we had gained two friends by meeting you both. Your wedding was stunning and Laura you looked a million dollars! Thank you for looking after us so well and we enjoyed every moment of your wedding day it was super. Tregenna Castle once again wowed everyone and the impromptu free flying bird show was such a bonus wedding moment!

Lots of love to this extra special pair and enjoy you wedding memories xxxtregenna-hotel-weddings-3139tregenna-hotel-weddings-2954tregenna-hotel-weddings-3153tregenna-hotel-weddings-2968tregenna-hotel-weddings-2690tregenna-hotel-weddings-0209tregenna-hotel-weddings-3176tregenna-hotel-weddings-2696tregenna-hotel-weddings-3233tregenna-hotel-weddings-0302tregenna-hotel-weddings-0344tregenna-hotel-weddings-3068tregenna-hotel-weddings-0372tregenna-hotel-weddings-2795tregenna-hotel-weddings-0478tregenna-hotel-weddings-3339tregenna-hotel-weddings-3340tregenna-hotel-weddings-2814tregenna-hotel-weddings-2823tregenna-hotel-weddings-3424tregenna-hotel-weddings-0574tregenna-hotel-weddings-3539tregenna-hotel-weddings-0609tregenna-hotel-weddings-0613tregenna-hotel-weddings-0618tregenna-hotel-weddings-3668tregenna-hotel-weddings-3142tregenna-hotel-weddings-0624tregenna-hotel-weddings-3245tregenna-hotel-weddings-0638

One of the most popular questions we are asked during meetings is ‘What do you do if it rains all day on our wedding day?’ well the photos you are about to see are your answer. We still take fabulous, beautiful photos, you still have the time of your life, you still smile all day and you still walk away with a set of photographs that you will treasure forever. I can say hand on heart Ceri and Phill had the time of their life’s last weekend.

This gorgeous couple got married at the stunning Tregenna Castle Hotel in St.Ives, after a wonderful morning of friends and family all getting ready together. Ceri looked absolutely stunning in her amazing dress and Philip so very handsome in blue. An entourage of stunning bridesmaids and super smart groomsmen completed this stunning wedding look. Wheal Sara flowers from St.Ives once again created flowers with a beautiful twist that made them stand out from the rest.

Friends and family travelled from all over Britain to attend this wedding of this couple, and Phil and Ceri smiled throughout the whole service.

After Tregenna Castle the wedding party made their way to the beautiful Carbis Bay Hotel for their reception. Canapes were served, the room looked stunning thanks to Cara the amazing wedding coordinator there and the party was in full swing. The group photos we decided with the bride and groom to shoot inside. In this beautiful hotel with its large spaces this was not an issue. We cleared a few sofas and had our very own indoor studio to capture the formals!

We hit the beach as this lovely couples dream was an outdoor wedding shoot and these tow were amazing sports, their dear friend held umbrellas, flowers and the garter (!) for us and we got some stunning work. The beach at Carbis Bay was empty, the sand foot print free, and to be honest rain or not it looked stunning. Ceri and Phillip you two were amazing, and we had such fun, as we walked off the beach Ceri said how glad she was she went out. Thank you so much to this great couple we are so glad you went to the beach too!

Wishing this happy-go-lucky fantastic pair a fabulous married life!tregenna-hotel-weddings-2529tregenna-hotel-weddings-1609tregenna-hotel-weddings-2555tregenna-hotel-weddings-1644tregenna-hotel-weddings-1724tregenna-hotel-weddings-1732tregenna-hotel-weddings-9595tregenna-hotel-weddings-2432tregenna-hotel-weddings-2389tregenna-hotel-weddings-1925tregenna-hotel-weddings-2003tregenna-hotel-weddings-2320tregenna-hotel-weddings-2354tregenna-hotel-weddings-2362tregenna-hotel-weddings-2397tregenna-hotel-weddings-2400tregenna-hotel-weddings-2767tregenna-hotel-weddings-9762tregenna-hotel-weddings-9809tregenna-hotel-weddings-9817tregenna-hotel-weddings-9838tregenna-hotel-weddings-9846tregenna-hotel-weddings-9885

Yesterday we had the pleasure of photographing a family on the amazing Porthmeor Beach and The Island in St.Ives, our lovely town in Cornwall. I love these jobs when a family, bored of the usual studio shoots come to us and ask for a beach shoot for them and their kids. What fabulous memories of a holiday and such a better light. Our studio got ditched years ago, we feel that it was too harsh and unnatural for Kiss Photography. I love the beach and I feel I get so much more out of children and kids when they are on the sand. family-shoot-2815family-shoot-2574family-shoot-2580family-shoot-0022family-shoot-2591family-shoot-2612family-shoot-2851family-shoot-0059family-shoot-2877family-shoot-2919

On the weekend of Glastonbury music festival Joi and Joel had their very own festival inspired wedding at the incredible Cornish Tipi wedding venue.

We drove down the twisty turny lanes to get to Port Issac that was bathed in sunlight and had a real holiday feel about it this sunny weekend. Joi was getting ready in a little Cornish Harbour house with her mum and her friend. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed and just lovely.

Joi had her make up and hair done by Neila as did her bridesmaid and as always with Neila the make up was picture perfect.

I fell in love with Joi’s dress, which was pretty stunning and then I spotted the gold Jimmy Choo Shoes and thought I had gone to wedding heaven!

After the morning preparations were well under way it was time to leave and make our way to one of Cornwall’s most amazing wedding venues The Cornish Tipi weddings. The weather couldn’t have been kinder on this Saturday, the sun was high and the trees created that lovely dappled look. The walk down though the woodland path was the perfect way for the guests to start this wedding day journey. Upon arrival at the wood clearing guests were treated to music by the very talented Sam Green. The tree was festooned with hanging hearts and the pavilion decorated with paper origami cranes which symbolises a good marriage and long life in Eastern folklore. Joi walked though the meadow on her fathers arm and it couldn’t have been a more prettier sight.

The service was beautiful, confetti was thrown and the guests nibbled on pasties and scones and sipped champagne. Joi and Joel took out a rowing boat, this venue has its own lake and the photos are stunning.

As the guests ambled back to the main tipi sight we caught up with them there. A marquee filled with bunting, jam jars of Pimms on tap, a bar a gourmet BBQ, music, a kids entertainment tipi. Later on in the evening another band rocked up Gentlemen of Few, and the dance floor rocked! Joi put on her dancing clothes and stole the floor, amazing lady! Fire lanterns were lit by the Cornish Tipi lovely organisers and a camp fire was blazing, the ice cream trike had come and delivered dessert and home made cakes were being tucked into. A fire juggler entertained us all as the night time fell and the stars shone and after his act beautiful fireworks filled the sky. The “man-tent” whiskey was being served to warm everyone up and everyone was chilling out on hay bales wrapped in blankets.

I totally fell in love with Cornish Tipis as a wedding venue. The guys and lady that run it did so with care and love and attention to detail but did so in such a way they blended in and things just seem to happen. I truly envy their job’s, getting to work and spend time on this wonderful piece of land, flying around on the quad making everything happen. You could tell the guys loved working here too, this place runs on passion and love, its amazing.

Joi and Joel you turned your wedding day into something totally amazing and very unique and special. You are lovely people with a passion for fun and laughter. Your wedding day was relaxed and beautiful and we loved being there to capture the day. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome, for letting us share your day and photograph it for you. Thank you Joel for keeping us fed and watered and making us feel so comfortable. I want to give a huge mention to the amazing parents of this couple who must have also worked so very hard to get this day to happen, working at weddings all the time we know exactly what goes into the attention to detail and knew you were all a big part of it. Wonderful times and you will have wonderful memories of a special day.

All the best to Joi and Joel, a part of me is always disappointed I don’t go to Glastonbury any more, but your wedding totally made up for it on Saturday!

We wish you all the love in the world!tipi-weddings-1441tipi-weddings-04tipi-weddings-0894tipi-weddings-0974tipi-weddings-tipi-weddings-1024tipi-weddings-08tipi-weddings-1186tipi-weddings-05tipi-weddings-1204tipi-weddings-1662tipi-weddings-1724tipi-weddings-1994tipi-weddings-2090tipi-weddings-06tipi-weddings-2138tipi-weddings-03tipi-weddings-2230tipi-weddings-8988tipi-weddings-02tipi-weddings-2006tipi-weddings-07tipi-weddings-9369tipi-weddings-1535
