Dan and Daisy’s day was a wonderful explosion of colour and glitter, set in a huge magical back garden and barn which was kindly lent to them for their wedding day by their close friend, Barbara. Having previously lived in Cornwall whilst studying Photography at Falmouth University, I was SO excited to
come back to capture Dan & Daisy’s amazing wedding (and it also worked as a great excuse to wind down by the beach for a couple of days!)
When I first spoke to Dan and Daisy about their plans for their wedding, they described their theme as ‘colourful, and glittery’ and true to their words, their styling and décor gave a rustic, colourful, summery vibe, featuring colourful lanterns, chalkboard signs, fairy lights and colourful flowers dotted around in jam jars. The guests were asked to don their most colourful and glittery garms, and they did not disappoint! There was also an awesome Glitter Station set up for guests to use if they wanted to go all out with the sparkle (I did have to hold myself back from covering myself head to toe in glitter…)
They opted for a simple, but beautiful, pressed flower cake by Oona’s Cakes, and catering by the Falmouth Supper Club. Tom Dale, who is a familiar face on the Cornish music scene, played Blues and Folk tunes throughout the day, serenading guests and adding to the chilled out atmosphere of the whole day. The ceremony itself, which took place under a majestic tree, was conducted by Daisy’s uncle, who beautifully told the story of their love and life together so far. This, along with the handmade wedding bands Dan and Daisy made for each other gave the ceremony a really personal touch.
And that magical garden I mentioned earlier? Well, it was perfect to explore and with so many opportunities to get some truly magical portraits of the bride and groom together. My approach to couple photos is pretty relaxed, I give gentle prompts rather than pose my couples so that I can capture genuine candid emotions to create couple photos full of love. Safe to say that these two nailed that brief! I LOVE how their photos really show how much they love each other and how much fun they have together.
