Rosie and Marks day has to be one of most emotional I have had this year. They chose the stunning location of Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe as the venue and as you may be aware it’s possibly my most favourite venue to shoot at.
The day started with bridal prep out at a stunning property overlooking the harbour, the perfect setting to start the day. A short walk from here was were the boys were getting ready, as usual the lads only take about a 10th of the time to get ready and before we knew it Monty, the Tunnels own camper van was pulling up outside the property ready to take the boys down to the venue.
Thankfully the weather held out and the ceremony was held outside, I’ve shot both indoors and outdoor ceremonies at the Tunnels and each are just as special. After the ceremony it was time for a few informal / formal shots ont he terrace of the Tunnels then onto the beach for a few extra shots and a chance for me to grab a few moments with Rosie and MArk on their own. The tide was right today for a set up I have waited a long time to use. I think you can guess which one it was.
The food at the tunnels is always fantastic so it goes without saying todays food was first class. Well done guys.
The speeches have to be one of the most emotional I have been witness to and I am not afraid to admit, I did get a lump in my throat and the beginnings of a tear in my eye as Rosie’s dad read his speech. A very special moment.
During the speeches I had been watching the sun dip towards the horizon, seizing my chance we all head down to the beach for one of most favourite shots of the day. Tonight didn’t disappoint as you will see.
The evening entertainment was a two fold affair. On the middle floor of the venue an excellent guitar / singer entertain the guests from the moment his set started. Then on the lower floor I had set up my photobooth for the evening, dutifully manned by my assistant Archie, he ensured the guests had a right laugh and also captured some great fun shots of the guests.
