Back in May this year, I photographed a really very special celebration. Christine and Dan got married, and did it in a really personal and special way. Their wedding actually took place on two different days, with two different ceremonies and two very different events. The first one, featured in this blog post, was an intimate church ceremony at St Agnes in Cornwall, with just ten guests, followed by a bit of time on the beach at St Agnes for some photographs.
I really loved the relaxed build up to the ceremony, with Christine having her hair done (at Split-Enz) opposite the church, and Dan having a pint next door with the Reverend, before strolling over the road for the service. It was a wonderful day to be a part of, particularly special with such a tiny group of people there, and I feel really privileged to have shared it. After some family photos in the beautiful churchyard, I headed down to Chapel Porth beach with Christine and Dan, to capture some photographs of them on the beach and test the Cornish waters! As a surfer, Dan was clearly much happier once he'd stripped off his formal wedding trousers and managed to persuade Christine to take a quick run into the sea! I loved being on the beach with Christine and Dan - it was so beautiful, and lovely to see them taking a little bit of time on their own together to enjoy the moment.
Their main wedding celebration followed two days later, with an amazing humanist ceremony under an ancient beech tree in a Cornish forest. Coming up shortly! But for now, here are some more images from their lovely day in St Agnes...
