Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful beachside Cornish wedding at the stunning Carbis Bay Hotel with accents of blue..

He says of the couples Cornish wedding day…
Both Simon and Jules were getting ready for their Wedding at Carbis Bay Hotel.
Simon who was my first port of call, was getting ready in one of the houses up the hill and I just wanted to get a few shots of him and the family.
Jules was getting ready in one of the spectacular new Ocean View suites which are literally on the beach and brand spanking new.
On arrival Jules was having the finishing touches of her makeup done by the gorgeous and very talented Suzi Winter.
She was already in her stunning bridal gown from Forget Me Not Bridalwear in Nuneaton when I arrived as she didn’t want any getting ready shots, and she looked absolutely breathtaking
This was to be a real family affair, as it was second time round for both Jules and Simon, and apart from Cathy Jules’ maid of honour all the bridal party were their offspring.
Simon had his son Joe as the best man, and Jules had Simon’s daughter Ellie and Joe’s girlfriend Lowri as her bridesmaids.
But to give her away Jules had her two sons Lucas and Alex.
Carbis Bay Hotel is one of the most popular wedding venues in Cornwall, but this was to be one of the first wedding ceremonies in the new Ocean View building.
This large airy room with un-hindered panoramic sea views capable of seating 250 guests really is something special. I don’t think there’s anything quite like it in the country!
Oh, in case you’re wondering why Simon had the naval hat on its because all his mates laugh at his likeness to Richard Gere so Simon did the ‘Officer And A Gentleman’ bit.
After the ceremony obviously we all headed down onto the beach for the guests to be able to congratulate our happy couple and to get the groups photos.
Before the wedding Jules asked me what do brides normally do for footwear on the beach, wear heals or go barefoot?
I laughed and said, if you ask your friends they’ll say ‘save your shoes’ and go barefoot, ask a photographer and they’ll say keep your shoes on so your dress will still be the correct length, but I suggested wearing some mules on the sand so she can have the best of both worlds!
While the guests were taking their seats for the wedding breakfast I took the opportunity to get some couple photos inside while we waited.
It was a real scorcher of a day and the beach was packed, so we did the couple shots after the wedding breakfast when the beach had cleared and the light wasn’t so harsh.
Then it was time to get back for Jules and Simon to cut their ‘Cakes By Design‘ master piece.
The cake was so detailed that it was a real shame to sink a knife into it, but sink it they did, and then they went straight into the first dance and partied on into the night.
