 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. BPS-9030 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.

Ali’s beautiful wedding dress was supplied by Vu’s Bridal

The wedding stationery was by the very talented Charlie Scribble

Wed Show Trereife
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.

So I took Joe, the studio manager here at Ben Photography, along with me on my latest wedding photo shoot for Wed Magazine.  I think that any ideas that he might of had that location photo shoots where glamours affairs have been well and truly removed from his thinking.  Yes, those are clips holding the wedding dress on our model. It normally ends up being a lot of sitting around waiting for something to happen, followed by an intense few minutes of activity.

The wedding photo shoot ended up being loads of fun, and even though the weather didn’t want clear up for us until the last half hour, always seems to be the way, we ended up getting some really beautiful photos for next issue of Wed Magazine.

We started of in the morning on the beach just below the beautiful Rosevine Hotel, where we did a mock wedding ceremony. We where very lucky to be able to talk the owner of the VW Campervan we where using, into being our groom for the photo shoot. He was a great sport, but I think he’ll have some explaining to do to his wife when the magazine comes out. We then moved up to the Hotel itself, which has some beautiful rooms that we where able to use for photographs. The sun finally came out just in time for us to use the gardens at the Rosevine  for our drinks table shots.

Unfortunately  I’m not allowed to show you guys any of the photos from the wedding photo shoot until Wed Magazine has published them, so there is only the one behind the scene shot for now.  I’ll be sure to add a post once the magazine is out to show you guys some of the shots.

One of the great things about working on a shoot like this is that you get to work with a lot of talented people.  Not to mention getting a chance to sample some of the brilliant food on offer at the Rosevine Hotel. Here are the people that made this shoot possible.
