What a sumptuous wedding this was! Kate and Simon’s wedding at Trevenna was a feast for the eyes, especially the floristry by Sharon Mesher which completely blew me away when I arrived. I had met Kate and Simon a few months back for an engagement shoot and within seconds they both had me in gales of laughter whilst they described the incredible production that was their wedding (Kate is also an events manager for a number of top London venues). Trevenna Barns is fast becoming one of my favourite venues, not least because of how beautiful it is but also how I feel whenever I photograph a wedding there. The staff make everybody, including the likes of me, feel welcome and will check in with me to make sure I have everything I need.
Kate looked beautiful, every detail of her bridal attire perfectly suited to her, I only had to look at Simon’s face when he first saw her to see he was utterly entranced. The couple are a wonderful mix of playful and tender with each other and being around them is a joy. I had asked Kate how Simon proposed and also why she had chosen Trevenna, this was her response.
Simon and I met online, and after three years Simon proposed in front of 3,000 at a festival he helps run called LeeFest. We knew instinctively that we wanted to get married in Cornwall, where my parents live. We wanted a relaxed venue with accommodation on site as the majority of guest would be travelling from London. When we viewed Trevenna we knew it was right, the venue, the views, the staff were amazing. One of the main reasons we choose the venue was due the flexibility of it and the can do attitude of the staff onsite.
Below are a few of my favourite photographs from the day. It was certainly a day of weather! We had torrential rain, then storm clouds, then rain again, then blistering sunshine. It was nice to stop at nearby Colliford Lake for a few photos even though the sky was threatening a downpour. Kate and Simon thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day and I wish you every possible happiness for the future.
