Every wedding has its special moment, a little bit of the day, as an observer, I treasure. Our job as wedding photographers is to capture the feel of the day, the moments, the happiness, the love and the laughter. Every wedding has a moment that stays with me, and at every wedding this moment is different.

Claire and Rich, who tied the knot at The Carbis Bay Hotel last weekend had many many moments. Stunning Claire in her amazing dress, holding tropical flowers with an English twist. The beautiful bridesmaids and the gorgeous flower girls. The peach,mint and candy pink summer colours. The decor of balloons and bunting, so pretty and summery. The lovely groom and his men, so smart in navy suits. But my personal special moment was a first for us here at Kiss. The first dance on the sand. Picture this, you marry, your guest’s enjoy a meal, then they drift down to the hotels private beach. An area has been condoned off just for you, the beach bar is open and a guitar player is playing your favorite tunes. Your guest enjoy a game of volley ball. Children are laughing having fun, the adult guests sipping champagne. Then “your song” comes on ( INXS-Never Tear Us Apart… LOVE IT!!!!!) and your guest’s form a circle on on sand and you dance your first dance. And there it was THE wedding moment, amazing!

It did help it was the perfect summer day and the beach was pretty empty and stunning, I wouldn’t say Claire and Rich were lucky, I would just say these lovely two deserved the perfect weather for their perfect day. The theme was beachy, pebbles and painted shells on the tables, a total beach themed cake complete with cute beach huts.The sweet bar was a tribute to Rich’s Dad and did the family name proud, it was filled with every favorite English sweet and took me right back to my childhood.

A perfect wedding for a perfect family. Congrats to you both, and thank you for letting us share your perfect day!

Here at Kiss Photography we have had a wonderful month of shooting for Carbis bay Holidays. So many five star holiday apartments, it has been a total pleasure. We have been wowed, amazed and sometimes just plain jealous of the views, spaces and wonderfulness of these pads to holiday in. I wanted to blog about this company as so many brides ask us where their families can stay to make a holiday out of a Cornish wedding, well check out some of these properties interior-photography-3229 interior-photography-3806 interior-photography-4660 interior-photography-5790 interior-photography-6039 interior-photography-6309 interior-photography-7610

This is the only place to stay in St.Ives if you are backpacking, its colorful,funky,friendly and so central. After this mornings shoot and chatting to Cohort owners Dan and Lee we found out they hold #weddings there too! perfect for that chilled out affair and with its own outside space and kitchen. Love this place with its happy smiling people!  interior-photography-8624

When you meet such a lovely couple as Faye and Christopher are, you can only wish for the perfect day for them. Well Sunny St.Ives didn’t let us down last week. As the sun blazed down on Porthminister beach, the guests enjoyed drinks on the deck at The Harbour Hotel over looking the turquoise sea.

We at Kiss Photography enjoyed our day so much from start to finish, full of smiles and fun and some wonderful beach time.

Fayes attention to detail was incredible and I loved capturing all the details. The wedding service room at The Harbour Hotel was decked out so very pretty and as Faye walked in to meet her groom she was radiant and looked amazing.

Her broach bouquet was incredible and as we got outside the sun just hit all the sparkles.

Christopher so calm and relaxed and totally enjoying the day was a pleasure to spend the morning with and when the pair kicked off their wedding shoes and got into their flipflops I over heard Christopher say he was on the sand and feels so at home.

A gorgeous Cornish wedding, amazing food and wedding cup cakes, fun and sun, Christopher and Faye you truly had a day you and your guests will never forget. A big congratulations of us both wishing you a wonderful future together XXX
