This blog post comes from the heart.
From the moment I met Jessie and Tamsin I think that we all knew that their wedding would be magical. I was beyond excited about the prospect of photographing their tipi wedding down at Hendra Barns in Mitchell, Cornwall. The two long years I had to wait to document their day was most certainly worth it and the day did not disappoint.
I not going to write much about the images as I think they speak for themselves but I will say what a pleasure it was to share the day with them, I felt like one of the family. Also a huge thank you to them for trusting in my creativity so explicitly and just letting me do my thing. It means a lot of me to be given such creative freedom.
Stand out moments for me were…. photographing two brides getting ready with Cheeto the dogs star appearance, the first look, the brides walking into the stunning woodland setting, fun at the lake, cooking marshmallows on the fire in the tipi, Jessie’s speech, our sunset adventures on the hill and the sparkler promenade.
Sometimes you just click with people and every step of the process was such a joy. Not only was their wedding stunning but it was also very real and heartfelt. Every little thing about the day was carefully considered, from the beautiful flowers and woodland decorations but also how sensitively the guests were looked after. It created a really special and magical vibe. Even the Cornish weather came through on the day and gave us bright sunshine that helped to dilute the autumnal gusts of wind.
Jessie and Tamsin, words are not enough to communicate what a delight it was to document your day. I wish you all the happiness in the world on your new adventures in married life.
Oh and thanks for the amazing sushi. It tasted as good as it would have done back in Vancouver 😉
