Cate and Neil's wedding

On what has probably been the hottest and sunniest day of the year so far, I had the absolute pleasure to spend the day with Cate and Neil and their family and friends to enjoy the wedding celebrations.  They are a young couple who happen to live just down the road and friends kindly recommended me to Cate's mum, Michelle.

As their special day drew closer we headed to the Smugglers for a meet-up and chat about their plans for the day to make sure everything went smoothly and was as stress free as possible.

Cate wore a beautiful vintage style dress from County Cream and Neil and his groomsmen had very dapper tweeds with caps and colourful purple ties.

The weather on the day was spectacular and after a relaxed morning in accommodation near the Smugglers, shooting some getting ready shots, we headed to Truro with Cate arriving in a fantastic VW campervan that has been lovingly cared for.

Cate was given away by her grandfather, this is one of my favourite shots of the day and one which I hope will grow in significance as time passes.

It was lovely to watch the scene unfold as Neil and Cate took their vows and exchanged rings, hardly taking their eyes off each other for a second!!

After the ceremony, we headed off to Crantock beach to make the most of the sunshine and to capture some couples shots, giving Cate and Neil a bit of a breather following the busy morning.

After being fed handsomely (thanks guys!) and shooting the speeches, cake cutting and groups, we took a little more time out to make the most of a corn field next door to the pub which had grown to a perfect height since the pre-meet a few weeks before.  The couple enjoyed their first dance and I set up some off-camera flashes to backlight them, thinking that the shots would suit some black and white images to match their vintage theme.

Cate and Neil were absolutely the best couple to work for and they were relaxed and happy to go with the flow to capture some images to be enjoyed for years to come.  Bucketfuls of laughter, lots of smiles and happy faces (a few tears Michelle!!) A perfect day.  Very best wishes to Cate and Neil for their future together and big hugs to all, not forgetting the gorgeous little Imogen of course. Xx
