When your family have flown in from America and the Philippines, your parents have arrived and celebrating a special birthday AND you have just had a baby, what better way to mark such a special occasion with a special family photo shoot, shot on location on a beach.

We were honoured to be asked to capture this event, one family from London, one from America and parents and sister from the Philippines, all meeting on holiday in St.Ives Cornwall. The gorgeous four week old baby was adorable and was a model in the making.

The beach is such a good place to get perfect light, relaxed children and  a feeling of really getting people in a natural unforced way. We so loved working with this happy gang, had many laughs and enjoyed the whole thing. We look forward to seeing you all again we hope on the next St.Ives gathering!family portrait-Photography-6426family portrait-Photography-5188family portrait-Photography-5182

I can only describe this amazing day as the wedding of smiles. In a romantic union of Cornish and South African, Lisl and Jeremy tied the knot alongside there families and four children. Lisl the beautiful bride filled the day with fun and laughter, the Prosecco flowed in the beautiful marque in the grounds of Beacon Cragg B&B overlooking the gorgeous Porthleven.

This wedding was a chilled family affair and we wandered the harbour front of Porthleven, collecting photos as we went of the family members. This seaside town has so much significance to this couple it was important to portray the place in their wedding photographs. Afterwards the family went to Beacon Cragg where pasties and fizz were served with the stunning cliff top views and garden games were played. In the late afternoon more guests joined the party for a hog roast and to dance the night away.I have to mention that not only did Lisl look so incredible in her dress her shoes ROCKED! AND she managed to wear them down through the wild fern and flower pathways for our photoshoot… what a woman! she also had a moment of running barefoot as well, but that was just all part of the fun!

We enjoyed the company so much of this fun pair and know their life will always be happy. thankyou both for letting us at Kiss Photography cover your day!porthleven-wedding-Photography-1238porthleven-wedding-Photography-5546porthleven-wedding-Photography-5468porthleven-wedding-Photography-4827porthleven-wedding-Photography-8702porthleven-wedding-Photography-5553porthleven-wedding-Photography-8674porthleven-wedding-Photography-5975porthleven-wedding-Photography-5956porthleven-wedding-Photography-5862porthleven-wedding-Photography-5822porthleven-wedding-Photography-5782porthleven-wedding-Photography-5021porthleven-wedding-Photography-8692porthleven-wedding-Photography-1367

We spent such a fun day with Daisy and Mark on their wedding day at Merchants Manor Hotel.

Daisy looked absolutely amazing in such a gorgeous dress, perfect hair and make up

We spent a morning capturing the getting ready shots, Daisy was with her Mum, her bridesmaids and her cute baby boy. The fizz was flowing and everything ran to plan.

Mark was greeting guests downstairs and the fantastic wedding staff were preparing the room.

Daisy was in white and her bridesmaids in a very stylish Navy, the flowers displayed in white jugs with nautical bows and the brightest bouquets that set off this fabulous fun wedding a treat.

The service was held in the hotel and the guests spilled out onto the lawns on this sunny day in Falmouth. The kids had such fun playing in the gardens and we got lots of natural shots. We took Daisy and Mark off for a few photographs around the grounds and in the hotel that is decorated to perfection.

It wasn’t long before the evening was in full swing and the dance floor was full, cocktails were flowing and a real party atmosphere was in place. The children really enjoyed the kids disco the couple had kindly organised and then a band was booked to play later into the evening.

It was lovely getting to know this pair and their lovely boys, thank you for letting us be part of your day. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happy times, which we just know you will have together.Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4577Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4591Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-0991Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4675Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4677Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4744Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4602Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4608Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4901Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4617Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4934Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4629Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-5082Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-5028Merchants-Manor-wedding-Photography-4732

Carly and Mark were married last week at the stunning Harbour Hotel in St.Ives. The sun shone and the sea was blue, it was the perfect day for a beach wedding.

The wedding had so many vintage touches to it from the china the meal was served on, to the gramophone on the cake table, to the serve yourself Pink Lemonade stand outside on the lawn. It was all so pretty, the flower-girls, the Paige boy outfits and then the bride herself!

A very moving service and I just love the photos we captured of the emotion. We got some fantastic photos of the whole thing and some great kids shots too. The children brought such an element of fun to the service, pointing out the train and the beach and the sea, there were lots of smiles snapped too.

I think all the guests made it down to Porthminister beach for photos which was lovely and we managed to find a quite corner on a very busy beach day! Carly and mark were fantastic, considering the sun was truly beating down on them. Guests paddled in the sea, the children played in the sand, and great wedding memories were made.

Wishing you both a lovely married life together and we know St.Ives will always be held dear to you.Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-3868Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-0799Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-8098Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-3972Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4060Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4111Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4115Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4148Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4298Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4338Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4427Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4454Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4485Stives-harbour-hotel-wedding-photography-4490
