This was my first WEDDING of 2012 and what a way to start the year! There is so much that I would love to write about this wedding but I would be hear all day so I will try and keep it short and sweet.
Libby and Steve’s theme for their wedding was ‘posh frocks and wellies’! Amazing! Definitly a sensible idea if you are planning a coastal wedding in Cornwall at the beginning of January! All the guests (and photogtapher!) were asked to wear wellies to the ceremony and be as creative or silly as you want them to be! I managed to bag myself some white dunlops from Macsalvors the week before! A few funny looks from the locals but it went down well with the wedding party! I will try and upload some pics soon! The wedding iteslef was held at the YEW TREE GALLERY just outside Morvah in West Cornwall, a beautiful and very remote part of Cornwall. Libby and Steve are very fond of this area and spend alot of time walking/running/clibing along this part of the coast. After the ceremony and a few glasses of champagne the newly weds and all of the guests made their way along the coast road towards the reception venue – THE GURNARDS HEAD PUB! This is one of the coolest pubs in Cornwall! In the middel of knowwhere with epic Cornish coastline all around! Just befofe they arrived at the Gurnards they stopped off for a short coastal walk at Bosigrin mine. Fair play to Libby and Steve for organising this one, I haven’t been to many weddings where you get the entire wedding party to climb up a very large muddy hill in all their nice wear in the middle of winter! This made for some spectatular views and really lovely candid shots of the party. There was no need to persuade Libby and Steve to climb up the stack of rocks at the top… they were straight up there!! 🙂
Anyway, I was supposed to keep this short, oops. Just a couple of other things to point out:
– The wedding rings – as you may have guessed, they both love the outdoors, Steve proposed on the side of a mountain in Switzerland (i think) and instead of a conventional engegament ring he used a rock climbers hook! see the best man shots with the rings.
– The cake – The Eiger I think!? Libby works for Rowes bakery – awesome!
– The best man photo – air guitar on a very high rock in Cornwall – love it!
Needless to say the party continued at the Gurnards until late. There was some an awesome line up of music including local bands Kola and Greydog! Really cool to see those guys there!
A 13 and a half hour day door to door…….loved every minute of it!
I hope you enjoy x
