Nicola & Patrick | St Mawes, Cornwall | Wedding
At the start of March I headed down to St Mawes in Cornwall to photograph the wedding of Nicola and Patrick. It was windy. Like, proper gales and stuff. It was also very beautiful, fun filled and a little off beat. St Mawes, for those who don’t know it is right on the southern tip of the UK. You can’t really go all that much further south. It’s a postcard pretty seaside town, complete with it’s own mini beach, castle, local accent and beautiful little winding roads.
I started off at the Hotel Tresanton with Nicola and her bridesmaids. I’d been looking forward to the wedding for a long time. It was the first time I’d photographed a wedding in Cornwall and it was great to finally meet Nicola and Patrick who I’d only ever met over Skype before. It’s always fun to hang out with the girls in the morning, to capture the fun and emotion. There was a lot of both!
I then went to catch up with Patrick and his best man who were getting ready nearby. We then headed off to the wedding venue – St Mawes castle! Whilst the castle itself was a little dark inside it was brightened up with all the personality of Nic and Patrick’s family. It was small intimate ceremony, and in addition to the 60 people attending were the museum mannequins who had been made up with button holes and an order of service. Stuff like this makes me smile.
After the ceremony, drinks and family photos on the battlements we headed back to the hotel Tresanton for the evening meal and of course the wedding speeches. Styling wise I loved the floral printed wedding stationary. Patrick and Nicola used prints that their grandmother had made and they looked superb. I’ve not seen anything like this before at a wedding. It’s always great to see small things like this that personalise the day.
After some outrageous speeches full of great anecdotes we then headed back up the road to St Mawes Castle for the evening partay. A 1 minute 16 seconds first dance and then the cave rave began.
