Jo & Anna's Stunning Beach Wedding

April 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I'm so proud to have my images from Jo & Anna's stunning wedding featured in the Spring Special Edition of Doily Days Magazine out this month.  The magazine celebrates all things quirky, eclectic and unique wedding-wise, and this couple's amazing day certainly fits the bill.  Two gorgeous brides, two stunning dresses and a venue right on the beach in beautiful Lusty Glaze, in Newquay, Cornwall.

I first met Jo and Anna at Belle's Quirky Boutique Wedding Fair in Brighton - we hit it off immediately, and having first established that yes, I would absolutely travel from Brighton to Newquay to capture their special day (!) they booked me on the spot.  I then had to wait almost 18 whole months for the day to arrive, but we met in the meantime in Brighton for their pre-wedding shoot, and got excited together seeing images of their gorgeous gowns on their phone!  

I always like to view new venues beforehand, so when the date finally came, I arrived a day early, and bumped into the girls while checking out the best locations on the beach.  It was glorious sunshine, and Jo & Anna were slightly disappointed that the forecast for the following day was cloudy and dull.  I, on the other hand, was not!  Sun + beach + mid afternoon = tourists, squinting, and harsh shadows.  I think (hope!) they took some comfort from how happy I was with the prospect of a cloudy day - not least given the need for multiple trips up and down extremely step cliff-face steps with a car-load of all things wedding.  (Big respect to the band, Keiko Rise - how they navigated those steps with two enormous speakers I have no idea.)

Jo and Anna are keen surfers, and were more than up for getting a little salt water on their dresses! So on the day, I gamely donned swimwear under more suitable attire (wishing I'd found a bit more time to get to the gym), waterproof camera at the ready.  One of the guests kindly sent me this photo (another sent a video too, but I can't so easily crop my gym-shy thighs out of that!)

Our awesome photographer, Jenny, donned a bikini and rash vest and ran straight into the waves with us, wedding dresses and all!"

 

It was at this wedding (just before I switched my DSLR for the more water-friendly point-and-shoot - an Olympus Tough, which still captures RAW, for the interest of my photographer readers) that I captured my favourite ever wedding image.  Dubbed "Mermaids on the Rock" by the brides themselves, I'm proud to say the image was awarded runner up Best Wedding Image at PTO 2016, sponsored by The Societies of Photographers.

I'm so happy that Jo and Anna have ordered one of my amazing panoramic albums - absolutely perfect for showcasing the stunning scenery of Lusty Glaze Beach.  (Ladies, if you're reading this, can't wait til you choose your images and I can start on the design...!)

Hope you enjoyed it!  And yes, the photo of the water droplets was me and the Olympus getting a complete soaking as a big wave came crashing over my head! I love, love, my job!
