Cornish Wedding Polhawn Fort - Cornwall wedding photographer beach bride and groom

Coastal chic wedding at Cornwall’s Polhawn Fort

The summer of 2015 saw a whole range of beautiful weddings, one of which was Jodie and Will’s big-day on 11th July. The couple tied the knot at the breathtaking Rame Church, before making their way to Polhawn Fort, Cornwall – the perfect spot for a wedding celebration.

The stunning setting has always been one of my favourites. Set in a beautiful coastal location, we all enjoyed views across the sea.  As you can imagine, the backdrop made for some pretty awesome photos too! The couple were also lucky enough to experience fantastic weather – meaning we could all make the most of the venue’s beautiful gardens on the fabulous summer day.

Hailing from London, and oozing serious style, I knew the couple would plan a chic wedding day from the moment we met. Jodie was so stylish and looked amazing in her sparkly Pronovias wedding gown. In the words of her husband, Will, she looked like a goddess.

The pastel colour scheme, featuring beautiful blue tones, was perfect for the season too, and completed the couple’s laid back, beach-inspired wedding day. Jodie and Will had so many of their friends down from London – it really was a special day. The couple’s families were fantastic too.

One thing I particularly loved about the wedding was the personal touches and attention to detail. A romantic ambience was created in the church with music from the choir. It was such a quaint, beautiful church and really added that special touch to the pair’s nuptials. The couple also treated their guests to seaside fare with a fun ice cream van, and provided the perfect evening entertainment with a live band – who were fab! There’s always a lot of pressure when it comes to wedding day speeches, but I’ve got to say I was impressed. They were very funny!

I loved every moment of shooting this special wedding day. The location, the wedding style, the atmosphere… it was all beautiful. The whole day proved that you needn’t pick a venue that’s close to home too. Jodie and Will had their heart set on a beach wedding and made all the necessary arrangements to make that possible. The result? Perfection!
