September brought the joyful peal of more wedding bells. Will and Rachael were the happy couple, taking their vows in the fine parish church of St. Cleer, before the party moved to the Lanhydrock Hotel.
Both our bride and groom are teachers, and this wedding was a wonderful lesson on building a personal and complete wedding experience. The day started with promising weather – warm but not too bright – ideal for Cornwall wedding photography. As Rachael prepared at her parents’ house, our work began: capturing every moment – from dress to dance.
Will and Rachael finally united between the stone walls of St. Cleer parish church, an ancient and historical building first established over 1300 years ago; its walls stood witness to another chapter of history as our couple committed their vows.
With the ceremony over, Will and Rachael enjoyed a quiet moment among the church’s gardens; and we were able to capture some great photographs of the belltower, looming mightily nearly 100 feet above. Finally it was time to move on, and the wedding party began the journey to the Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Club.
The Hotel’s ample green spaces made a great opportunity to squeeze everyone onto one camera lens, and Will and Rachael took advantage of the views to capture some beautiful images set against the picturesque backdrop. Inside, the merriment continued as the wedding guests enjoyed the couple’s personal touch on the proceedings; Rachael’s love of puzzles manifested a wonderfully original puzzle guestbook, each guest filling a puzzle-piece.
As the final dances began, we took our leave of Will and Rachael; their wedding enjoyed fine weather, beautiful views, and a lively party – a lesson for us all. We thank them for allowing us to be a part of their special day, and their happy wedding experience.
