A Cornish Festival Wedding – A Sneak Peek – Leanne & Tim

Most of our weddings are in Oxfordshire, Berkshire & Buckinghamshire so it was with great excitement that we travelled down the A30 to my native Cornwall to photograph the wedding of Leanne & Tim.011-LT-BJ-MLP23952_124I started the day in Falmouth with Leanne, her bridesmaids & Mum & Dad at their family home. It was a lovely part of the day, I know them well as Leanne’s Mum Dianne is my cousin! I photographed the girls when they were young before I left Cornwall but it was lovely to catch up. I loved the images I captured of the girls getting ready & Leanne’s Dad keeping out the way in the garden!028-LT-ML-MLP37487_040 022-LT-ML-MLP37394_005

I love the emotion of this moment of the day when a proud dad glimpses his daughter in her dress for the first time.033-LT-ML-MLP37545_062 034-LT-ML-MLP37570_070 035-LT-ML-MLP37579_072 036-LT-ML-MLP37583_074 037-LT-ML-MLP37586_076I then whisked myself off to the reception venue to make sure I was there in readiness for Leanne & Andrew’s arrival. Meanwhile my assistant had been photographing Tim & the guests arriving. Even my assistant at this wedding was a blast from the past! Many years ago when I was starting out I assisted a very talented photographer called Bjorn. Fast forward a few years & the roles had reversed & Bjorn was helping me out for the day. It was great working with again & we had a blast!001-LT-BJ-MLP23516_012 002-LT-BJ-MLP23521_013 003-LT-BJ-MLP23540_020Back to the wedding, by now a expectant groom was waiting for his brides arrival. He didn’t have to wait too long before she arrived on the arm of her proud dad.044-LT-ML-MLP37768_134

Leanne & Tim made their way in style in a very cool VW camper. We really wanted to get some shots of them with the camper with the sea behind them. Now being a Saturday in July it wasn’t guaranteed but with a very helpful driver & a couple of signs being ignored we captured the shot!071-LT-ML-MLP38147_239Leanne took off her shoes & we made our way onto the beach to do some shots of the two of them. We certainly caused quite a stir!072-LT-ML-MLP38180_249 008-LT-BJ-MLP23888_110 010-LT-BJ-MLP23914_115We didn’t want to take too long so we then made our way back to the reception venue Penmorvah Manor just outside my home village of Budock Water. Leanne & Tim then enjoyed a fabulous wedding breakfast surrounded by their friends & families. There were some fabulous speeches & it was fantastic to capture the emotions – the laughter & the tears. The highlight certainly was at the end of Andrew’s speech when their friends & family all joined in with a rendition of All You Need is Love – kazoos & all. This was a complete surprise for them both but there was quite a few more surprises to come!074-LT-ML-MLP38256_273 075-LT-ML-MLP38260_275 077-LT-ML-MLP38299_288 078-LT-ML-MLP38314_293 080-LT-ML-MLP38326_298 084-LT-ML-MLP38362_317 085-LT-ML-MLP38366_319 086-LT-ML-MLP38369_321 087-LT-ML-MLP38371_323 088-LT-ML-MLP38373_324 089-LT-ML-MLP38374_325After the wedding breakfast a vintage coach turned up to take all the guests to the next venue for the evening festivities. Leanne & Tim are both massive festival fans having got engaged at one & they both worked really hard on arranging a fabulous festival wedding! They had great attention to detail with fantastic signage, a hand built stage with live music & even a camping field for the dedicated festival goers!097-LT-ML-MLP38495_372 099-LT-ML-MLP38514_379 100-LT-ML-MLP38519_381 018-LT-BJ-MLP24258_205 020-LT-BJ-MLP24473_256 019-LT-BJ-MLP24279_211 113-LT-ML-MLP38692_445 109-LT-ML-MLP38645_431 117-LT-ML-MLP38738_462 118-LT-ML-MLP38740_463 119-LT-ML-MLP38756_469 120-LT-ML-MLP38789_478 121-LT-ML-MLP38796_480 127-LT-ML-MLP38855_501 130-LT-ML-MLP38891_514 135-LT-ML-MLP38975_532 136-LT-ML-MLP38979_533It was a fabulous evening & was enjoyed by all. It was great to photograph a wedding surrounded by so many of my family too. It was so great that I couldn’t seem to put my camera down, it might have had something to do with all the surprises too! One of which was when Leanne & Andrew were announced onto the dancefloor for their traditional Father & Daughter dance….or so we thought! Check out the photos as they busted some serious dance moves. It really was a fantastic day from start to finish. Wishing you every happiness Leanne & Tim. We hope you enjoy your sneak peek, there are lots more to come!012-LT-BJ-MLP23964_126
