Laura & Andy Wedding Photography, Photographers in Padstow

Laura and Andy were married at St.Columb Minor Church followed by the Victoria Hotel for their reception; both are in the Newquay area. The church is an extremely popular wedding venue in cornwall with weddings taking place there most weekends; it can also comfortably seat large numbers of wedding guests. For L and A's day the church was full. After a longer than usual service we poured outside into the sunshine for a good 35 minutes of photos before setting off for Porth beach.


Both had large families, also friends from inside and outside of the county. When there are so many people one is flat-out to get the photos done and, as is accepted and expected, I have to share my space with other enthusiastic photographers from the wedding party.


I always aim at the non-traditional style photographs; however, the group shots are still a must - these were taken at the church while everyone was captive and not lost getting to the reception. With the beach, in mind, along with bridesmaid(s) and best man, if possible, we can let our hair down but this does not mean we can escape the crowds of holiday-makers. Trevelgue Head, looking over Porth beach, is a favourite place of mine with wonderful views and not so busy. Nevertheless, the couple are usually itching to get sand between their tows and reach the sea. Out of the many photos taken here are a handful.
