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!

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

If you ever imagine the perfect marquee wedding in Cornwall, a wedding where the sun shines, the view in the distance is of the rolling hills and cliff tops of Cornwall and turquoise sea in the distance. Where your guests chill in the sunshine and the drink and canapés just flow. Then this is the wedding you imagined.

Sophie and Alex got married at St.Agnes parish church on Saturday, best service I have ever been too! superb vicar who made it perfect!

Before the church we spent a lovely morning with Sophie and her friends and family at her friends house getting ready. It was lovely and very relaxed, they had breakfast in the garden and enjoyed a celebratory drink together. Meanwhile the wedding guests gathered at the local pub opposite the church, it was a proper village wedding, it really did feel as though everyone was involved.

The church was dressed beautifully with flowers and when Sophie entered looking absolutely incredible in her amazing dress the picture perfect wedding progressed!

Alex looked so very smart and the pair just grinned. After the church we zoomed off to the cliff tops once again to were Alex had proposed two years ago to the day. The photos we are so very pleased with, the bride, the groom and the view just stunning!

Then off to the marquee reception venue Newdowns Farm and our brief was to capture all the friends and family having fun, being natural and capturing the moment and the day. I love this kind of photography, it gives me the chance to do what I love observing and capturing what I see. We had such fun mingling with the guests, having the odd chat and getting what Sophie and Alex wanted. I think the few photos we have selected for this blog sums up just a touch of the fun and smiles had by all.

We finished just as the party got into full swing and more and more guests were arriving across the fields, the sun was still high in the sky being the summer solstice, the day just went on. Perfect wedding? yep!

Thanks to this great duo, you made it all so easy for us at Kiss Photography by just being you, easy going and so very relaxed. A fab day! st-agnes-wedding-1555st-agnes-wedding-8330st-agnes-wedding-0313st-agnes-wedding-1591st-agnes-wedding-0341st-agnes-wedding-0346st-agnes-wedding-0355st-agnes-wedding-8375st-agnes-wedding-0419st-agnes-wedding-0472st-agnes-wedding-0563st-agnes-wedding-0568st-agnes-wedding-0582st-agnes-wedding-03st-agnes-wedding-0601st-agnes-wedding-0612st-agnes-wedding-0616st-agnes-wedding-0635st-agnes-wedding-1674st-agnes-wedding-02st-agnes-wedding-0643st-agnes-wedding-8535st-agnes-wedding-8541st-agnes-wedding-0971st-agnes-wedding-0702st-agnes-wedding-01st-agnes-wedding-1056st-agnes-wedding-0809
