you’re planning a wedding and haven’t got your hands on the best wedding magazine in Cornwall then make sure that you get yourself the latest winter issue of Wed Magazine. Okay, I might be a little bit biased as I get to do some photography for the magazine, but it really is a top class magazine. In my opinion, the best one around.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with Wed Magazine for the last couple of years. They are a great team dedicated to the wedding industry here in Cornwall, promoting only the best local suppliers and produce. For the latest issue, I got to work with the very talented Elle from Inspire Hire. Elle hires out loads of different wedding accessories, to help couples get the exact look they’re after for their wedding. So she’s probably one of the best people to help with the styling of a photo shoot.
The theme of the shoot was, of course, winter weddings to go with the season. We got to play with fake snow and had great fun setting up a pretend proposal, using one of Elle’s recent brides, Ali, as a last minute model not to mention the beautiful husky dog, Stig. With winter weddings becoming more and more popular over the last few years. We wanted the photographs to show that winter themed wedding can have a charm all of its own. We used lots of whites and soft colours, mixed in with natural materials and textures to give it an authentic feel. Winter can be a wonderful time of the year to get married, especially if you embrace the season like we have in these photos.

Another thing to note is Wed’s Wedding fair that is happening Sunday 6th April at Trereife House in Penzance. This is largest and busiest wedding fair of the year, where you’ll be able to meet all of the best wedding suppliers in the county. Again, I might be a little bit biased as I make sure that I’m always there. So, if you’re in the planning phase of your wedding, it’s a great place to get ideas for your wedding.

Occasionally I photograph weddings outside of Cornwall, and it’s always fun to see new places. And sometimes friends ask me to photograph their wedding for them, which is always extra special as I know the couple so well, and besides my wife says that I’m a terrible wedding guest. So I really enjoyed getting to photograph my good friends’ Iain & Jenny in their home town of Lewes, just outside of Brighton. Lewes is a beautiful part of the country, and the small village where the ceremony was held is more of a large farm community. It holds extra significance for Jenny as it is where she grew up and just a little way away from where Iain had lived.
Vintage themed weddings are very popular at the moment, but if you want to see one done really well then look no further. Iain and Jenny pulled out all the stops to not only make it look vintage, but to give it a real chilled summer picnic feel. They held the ceremony in the beautiful flintstone village church, that both sides of the family had spent most of the previous day decorating with hundreds and hundreds of wild flowers. Apparently both had been growing flowers especially for the wedding. It not only made the church look stunning, but filled the church with the wonderful scent of wild flowers.
For the reception Iain & Jenny had set up a marquee outside of the church, and had decorated it beautifully with wild flowers and and many little vintage themed items. One of the really special touches was all the bunting, all of the girls at the bridal shower had spent the evening making the bunting for the wedding, which gave it a little extra meaning. Rather than have a formal sit down meal, Iain and Jenny opted for a more picnic feel by having wicker baskets of food that got shared out amongst the people. This worked really well to break the ice and it really felt quite festive.
The evening rounded off the celebration beautifully with a folk band playing great music in the church hall, and a fireworks display by Iain’s father and brother. It was great to be part of Iain & Jenny’s wedding day, I wish them all the best for the future and look forward to seeing them again soon.
