I had the pleasure of helping shoot Hayley and Dan’s Wedding blessing in July. This day had been planned for a while and was one of the best locations I have photographed to date.
Hayley and Dan had their blessing on Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. Now for all of you who do not know this beach, click on the link and have a look. It is a spectacular horse-shoe shaped cove with white sand and clear blue sea. The sensible way down to the beach is via about 150 steps, down the cliff. There is another way, via a zip wire, which Hayley and Dan’s bridesmaids did after the ceremony.
The ceremony consisted of a sand ritual which was fantastic to photograph. Afterwards, a steel band from Bath played on their kettle drums, which gave a Caribbean feel to the afternoon. After the wedding breakfast, their was sand castle being made by the children and young at heart. For those with a little more energy, beach volleyball was the flavour of the day.
At 9pm, the sun started to set over the horizon and Hayley and Dan were happy to have some images taken as the sea lapped over their feet. Fantastic images for a fantastic couple. Click on the images to see them full size.
