Press Pause…

Well what a year it’s been! Just like the majority of you, I didn’t see that coming…

When I shot my first wedding of the year on 25th January, I had 24 weddings in the diary for the coming year and was looking forward to each and every one of them, but then the Corona virus hit and our lives were (and still are) temporarily put on hold.

My next wedding didn’t take place until 2nd August and I finished my wedding season on 31st October, having only photographed 6 weddings in total – A stark contrast to what I have been used to over the past few years!

If I was going to take anything from this experience, it was going to be a new sense of appreciation for everything I had previously (unknowingly) taken for granted. Being able to meet friends and family without restriction, the ability to book a table in a restaurant for dinner, or going to the cinema. Suddenly we weren’t able to do any of those things anymore and weddings weren’t allowed to take place either. The world had suddenly become a very strange place and with that, came mixed emotions.

Keeping busy…

I found myself trying to stay creative by shooting landscapes, photographing my family more and even capturing an elopement wedding in a bluebell garden…

When government restrictions were lifted slightly, I was also fortunate to be asked to photograph a couple of styled shoots by Cornwall wedding planner Belles & BeausWarrior Bride, which was made to reflect the feelings of many brides who have had to postpone their wedding, and a vintage, classic shoot at the very beautiful Boscundle Manor in St Austell, Cornwall.

Hands, Face, Space…

At the point where weddings could go head (but with limited numbers), I found a new sense of appreciation for those as well.

As a Cornwall wedding photographer it’s such a privilege to be entrusted to photograph a client’s wedding, but now with only a select few in attendance it feels even more special to be there, as many loved ones who weren’t able to attend had to watch the proceedings via live stream.

Weddings were suddenly very different – socially distanced ceremonies and wedding feasts, more time spent either outside or in well ventilated areas, face masks, hand sanitiser at every turn and washing our hands for the full 20 seconds…

So first of all, thank you to those 6 couples this year who braved the storm and tied the knot anyway – it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of (and photograph) your very special day. Love really does prevail!

Equally, to those couples who made the difficult decision to postpone their wedding – Your day WILL come and I can’t wait to spend it with you.

So here’s a few favourites of mine from the weddings I have photographed at Trevenna Barns, Lower Barns, Knightor Winery, Trebah Garden and Truro Registry Office during 2020. It was certainly the strangest year of my life so far as a Cornish wedding photographer and I know many of you reading this will also feel the same way…

Here’s to a happy (and healthy) 2021!
