Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful cricket inspired Cornish Wedding with hints of purple and yellow at Knightor Winery.

He says of the couples Cornish wedding day…
Ant, the Groom was the best man at a wedding I covered several years ago, so I was chuffed that he not only remembered us but that he and Lucy booked us as their Cornish wedding photographer
My first port of call was Scott the best man’s in Probus where Ant and his two sons were getting ready, just down the road from the church where Lucy and Ant were to be married.
Spirits were high and I knew it was going to be a great day!
Lucy got ready in Truro at one of the three bridesmaids homes along with her two flower girl nieces.
Lucy had her dress made for her by the lovely Kyla at ‘Roamer Rose’ and chose ‘Rosewood’ in Lemon Street Market to make the flower arrangements which were stunning.
To make the fifteen minute journey to the church Lucy travelled with her father in her parents Morris Minor convertible (top up, wedding hair and all that).
Ant was getting rather emotional even before Lucy’s arrival at the church, so when she came down the aisle he really had to try and keep himself together, and I think Lucy was struggling with emotion too.
It was a really beautiful service full of love laughter and emotion.
Leaving the altar to take their first walk down the aisle as Mr & Mrs, Lucy and Ant stopped at the end of the aisle and broke out into a funky little dance to the joy of their watching guests.
But once out all the guests were dancing with joy as we had a confetti moment and a couple of group photos before making our way to the wedding car.
On arrival to Knightor Winery I popped upstairs to the wedding breakfast room to capture it all set out for the wedding meal, and it certainly raised a smile when I saw that Lucy and Ant’s theme was cricket.
They are both obviously cricket mad, as the tables were named after fielding positions, and the table plan was a Subbuteo type live action cricket game.
While the guests took their seats for the wedding breakfast I made the most of the time and took Lucy and Ant for a few photos in the grounds.
The speeches were totally top drawer and had about a third of the guests in tears, with the added bonus of having not one but two songs in
After the meal Lucy had a freshen up on the makeup and then we went out for a few more couple photos in the grounds.
The grounds are so lovely at Knightor, they actually use this timber structure for outdoor ceremonies but I just use it as a lovely location for photos.
And then we caught the last of the evening sun on the edge of the lake.
In the evening Lucy and Ant booked a jazz band called ‘Aint Miss Behaving’ who travelled down from Exeter to entertain our happy couples and their guests.
