We loved this shoot with this gorgeous family. It was a total bonus that they are friends of ours too, I so enjoy photographing families that we know. Their lovely little boys Dillon and Rowan were comfortable in our company and I really felt we captured them in their true spirit, which is fun and joyful.

Without walking too far we managed to shoot views, rocks, sea and The Island Chapel. St.Ives lends itself for these types of shoot, the perfect backdrop.

Thank you to Caroline and Jez for booking us to photograph your wonderful boys, we had a perfect morning with you all!family-shoot-5779family-shoot-5796family-shoot-4596family-shoot-5872family-shoot-5882family-shoot-5906family-shoot-4606family-shoot-6052family-shoot-4647family-shoot-6100family-shoot-6190

Kate and Andrew from St.Ives tied the knot on Saturday at the St Ives Harbour Hotel, and Kiss Photography had the pleasure of being there to capture it all!
This wedding was a beautiful family event, filled with children having the time of their lives, friends and family.
Kate looked stunning in her beautiful dress and was a super hero bride juggling a three month old baby, a room full of excited toddlers, and a room change half way through her preparations. She did it all in a super calm fashion, never getting flustered and I have to say I was in awe!

Kate had a wonderful trio of bridesmaids and a perfect sister helping the morning preparations. Ladies you did a great job!

This stylish wedding has a royal blue colour these against simple white. The flowers from Wheal Sara were amazing and set off this stylish look to a tee!

The service room at The St Ives Harbour Hotel looked amazing and the cream rose petals were a beautiful romantic touch.

I always have a favourite wedding moment at every wedding, and for Kate and Andrews it had to be Andrews face when the registrar announced they were husband and wife. I have never seen a groom look so thrilled. A really special moment and a very emotional and wonderful service.

The day ran so smoothly,a lovely chilled our BBQ wedding breakfast and a hog roast for the evening and even the beach was quite empty for an August day and we got some fabulous photographs. Kate and Andrew are so in love it was easy to capture the warmth.

A great couple, lots of fun, a lovely day, fantastic friends and family and a great bunch of kids, and of course the beautiful bride and handsome groom, could anyone ask for a better wedding day?

I want to tell the whole story of this wedding day yesterday, because its a beautiful story, and a story that needs to be told.
Its a story about love, never ending love. A special kind of love story that goes on and on and still has a happy ending. It’s Heather and Stephens love story and it started 22 years ago.

I think it is so special when after being together for so long a beautiful wedding is held and the day is celebrated by so many and there are so many smiles and laughter, a beautiful bride a proud groom, a gorgeous hotel, stunning flowers and an elegant cake.

Stephen and Heather, this is your wedding day!

We arrived at Heather and Stephens pretty house and Heather wasn’t there! She was still having her hair done, so we chatted to her family and then she arrived looking fabulous, very excited and the bucks fizz was poured. Make-up was done by Sally Orchard, who we highly recommend for not only her amazing talent but her calming influence on the morning preparations.
Heather’s home was filled with parents, friends, close family and everyone was having a lovely morning of getting everything ready.

The vintage car broke down, but this did not dampen spirits, the problem was solved with a spanking new Mercedes and the bride arrived with moments to spare.

Stephen and his best man were waiting at the Greenbank Hotel‘s door for Heather and his face lit up. I overheard his best man say, “you are a lucky man” and he couldn’t take his eyes off her when he answered ” I know”

Heather looked incredibly stunning and I love the photograph of them meeting for the first time on the wedding morning. I loved how they entered together and I loved after the service Heather going over to kiss her Mum. I don’t know what her mother whispered in her ear, but the photo speaks a thousand words, love and pride, and just another moment of a very blissful day.
I have included the congratulations from the couples nearest and dearest, the happy smiling faces of the guests, the moment of one of Heathers nieces pinning the corsage onto her Grandfathers jacket. All these little details made the day what it was.
After the meal the bestman and Stephens son’s went out onto the jetty, pints in hand and had a bit of a giggle, they asked us to join them and the photos were great!

The moody skies that threatened rain just made for more dramatic wedding photos for us here at Kiss Photography. We are very pleased with what we got.

Our work as wedding photographers here at Kiss Photography is reportage and you do get a whole story documented about your wedding day. I wanted to show this story, the whole story, ending with the foxtrot as a first dance, music played by a swing band. What an ending!

When we met Stephen and Heather, Stephen said that he booked us for the reason that our wedding photos had a warmth to them, he said he was happy for the couples we photographed even though he didn’t know them as we added a little something. Such kind words and such a lovely comment to say to a photographer. But we didn’t add anything to these, these two did it all!

Thank you both for a great day, for looking after us and for YOUR warmth.
