Roxanne and Yam

I met Roxanne and Yam at the Llawnroc a few months before their wedding to talk about the day and get to know each other. It’s always great to meet a couple face to face and even better to actually meet at the venue. We talked about wet weather contingencies (always essential in Cornwall!) and particular shots they wanted.

We also chatted about some filming on Doc Martin that I was doing and asked if Martin Clunes fancied coming to the wedding (sadly he was a bit busy).

On the day I got there early (as I always do) and was immediately made to feel welcome by John and his amazing team at the Llawnroc. The sun was trying to shine and it was dry enough for everything to be set up on the stunning terrace.

Time for a few photos of Roxanne and her father on the stairs before the ceremony began. It was a beautiful ceremony and we continued despite a bit of heavy drizzle, ending with a triumphant, celebratory dance up the aisle from Roxanne and Yam to ‘We Go Together’ – fantastic!

We had so many backdrops and levels for the group shots; stairs, balconies, doorways and a beautiful view down to the sea. A nice bit of downtime for the guests while Roxanne and Yam disappeared off with me for some photos of the happy couple.

After some more downtime and a hilarious game of hide and seek (not just played by the children) everyone went into the impeccably decorated dining room. My favourite touch was the napkins set out like little dresses and dinner jackets, wonderful attention to detail from the team at The Llawnroc.

How else are you going to enter to dinner at your wedding than to ‘We Will Rock You’? This was a wedding that was overflowing with joy, love and humour from start to finish. After a wonderful dinner, with a hog roast and more hilarity from the speeches I took my leave and left the happy couple to enjoy the rest of their evening.

What a wonderful day, it was a pleasure to be your wedding photographer Roxanne and Yam.
