Cathy and James chose the wonderful venue of Bedruthan Steps hotel for their gorgeous wedding.

A venue where your guests sit on stylish striped deckchairs during the service, while overlooking the sea from the window. A door way from your room leads onto a covered deck and onto a garden, where the hotel chef is preparing your wedding BBQ for your guests. Swinging chair pods await for you to chill out on and if your Cathy and James a fantastic acoustic guitar player who just added to the ambiance of the whole day (AKA Disco Billy from FunkyAcoustica)

Cathy and James nailed the perfect wedding yesterday. A wedding that was relaxed and yet so very stylish, a beach feel garden party complete with croquet, music, delicious food and lots of very happy guests.

When we arrived we were shown to the cocktail bar where Cathy and James family were enjoying the pre-wedding moments. We took some shots of what was happening and then went to the service room where director style deck chairs were laid out in a room filled with bunting. Cathy arrived and looked amazing, her children walked down the aisle too and the room was filled with emotion and yet all still so relaxed.

Afterwards the guests spilled out into the private wedding garden surrounded by striped windbreaks. The BBQ started and we took the moment to leave the guest with the music and the big tin bath of bears while the canapes circulated to go down to the beach. The sun didn’t shine for us, but the sky looked moody and quite dramatic, you don’t always need burning sunshine to get fantastic wedding shots.

Cathy and James were a dream to work with, so laid back, so relaxed about it all and just a really, really lovely pair.

After the beach stint we returned to Bedruthan and the meal started. I loved how the guests could serve themselves to this amazing BBQ of grilled fish and meats, a rainbow of salad bowls and homemade breads. Perfect food, just served in a relaxed fashion. The bongos playing, the sun at this point did peak out, the children were running and blowing bubbles and I could not have wished Cathy and James a more perfect atmosphere and wedding day.

James and Cathy it was a total pleasure to part of your wedding day. We know you will both be wonderfully happy together with your totally gorgeous children. Enjoy it all, and thank you for a truly amazing photography day for us at Kiss Photography.

Sarah Jane came home from Australia to marry Sean in her home town of Penzance. They chose to have their blessing in the most amazing Tredavoe Chapel and their reception in The St Ives Harbour Hotel.

We were at Sarah Jane’s house with her friends, sisters and Mum and it was a lovely relaxed morning with hair and make-up being done, nail varnish being applied and champagne being drunk. It was just lovely, the girls just catching up over smoked salmon and scrambled egg and everything running on time. Sarah Jane looked absolutely stunning in her beaded dress and veil with the fantastic train. The bridesmaids fantastic in burnt orange and Sarah Jane’s mum in cream and navy. Such a pretty wedding. The service was one of the best, the words perfect and so intimate and meaningful.

The weather wasn’t kind but it did stop raining for five minutes and we went to Porthminister beach in St.Ives and got some absolutely beautiful shots of this lovely couple. The beach was clear of people and the sand untouched. I am so glad we got this moment, St.Ives in all its beautiful Cornish glory.

The wedding had some lovely touches, Sarah Jane’s sister made the fantastic wedding cake and favours, her friend did her hair, the tables were named after Australian beaches in honour of Sean’s roots. And the room looked stunning, lit candles and roses everywhere, so romantic.

A group of Sean and Sarah Jane’s friends came over from Australia for this couples special day, which was so lovely (and such a journey!! ) and I a sure made the day even more perfect.

I am sure you will agree that this couple looked incredible and we wish them all the very best and all the love in the world, this is just the start of a very exciting year for them.

Thank you both for letting us cover your wonderful day and enjoy your honeymoon in Thailand! 

We love photographing weddings at this wonderful venue Boconnoc. Celia’s and Scotts was no exception. We arrived and hair and make up on the seven bridesmaids was well underway. Celia was relaxing watching the comings and goings of all her family that were staying over, it was one big house party. Sally Orchard was on make up for the bride to be and there were hairdressers in every bedroom!

While I was busy getting all the details, Ricky was with Scott the groom and his groomsmen.

Soon it was time to go to the church where the wonderful rev. conducted the perfect service, filled with laughter and personal touches. It was perfect. Celia a reception teacher had all her children waiting for her when she came out, which was a lovely touch.

Celia was a stunning bride in her gorgeous tulle dress and veil that just fit the occasion and venue perfectly. She just shone! Scott worn his family tartan and the boys looked so very smart.

The day was steeped in tradition, with so many personal touches, the whiskey drinking bowl, the Cailagh, the tartens. The speeches were funny and touching, the guests all enjoyed the catering by The Round Kitchen.

We so enjoyed this beautiful day, we got some wonderful photos that we are so happy with and we recorded the event from beginning to end, a perfect story for this wonderful couple. Celia and Scott what a pleasure to meet you both, and spend the day with you. Thank you.

We all have a love/hate relationship with the traditional school photos. I actually love them, and always order them. My children looking very awkward and shy with the stark white background is an image I never get of them. Its a moment in time, their uniform ironed and hair carefully combed into place inevitably not quite so by the time their turn comes. But there comes a time when the photo may not happen, the kids get old enough to refuse it or they are off school that day. So this is the story of this little shoot. The school photo didn’t happen, and us parents need to mark each year of our children’s lives, so Hannah booked Kiss. This shoot on Godrevy beach was perfect for her two boys. Its a beach they know and love, parents and Grandma came too. The boys were comfortable and it worked so well for them.

We spent a wonderful morning with them all and as we worked as a team we got some lovely close ups of the boys, family shots and the two boys alone. It was perfect and I know Hannah we will pleased as well as her sons.

My school photos of my two children this year didn’t happen either, I was devastated, its time to get my own kids down to the beach to mark this school year for them both as well. They will not be shy or awkward, they will not be wearing strange pressed school shirts, but they will be laughing and running free, with the sun on their faces and the wind in their hair.
