Mark and Kelly got married on Christmas eve in stunning Tintagel. I googled ‘Tintagel wedding’ as soon as I got the e-mail and knew I wanted to capture their day for them. They got married in a beautiful little church on top of the rugged cliffs of north Cornwall. I’d photographed Marks’ sister Sinead getting married the year before and I’d had so much fun I knew it was going to be a blast. It was going to be tricky, timing wise, trying to get back for Christmas in London but it would be worth the effort.
My boyfriend Ben travelled down with me so we could turn it into a pre-christmas break and go for some nice walks. But also so he could help me with the driving after photographing the wedding. We arrived in thick fog to our lovely airbnb cabin. There were chickens and lovely dogs and the promise of an amazing view… if the fog cleared. We went on a lovely wander along the cliff tops, had a delicious pasty and found a lovely pub. Ben is a little crazy so he even managed to fit in a dip in the sea…
The next day we went for a longer wander in the other direction from Tintagel. We found awesome caves and waterfalls and another bakery… And then stumbled into a pub where Mark and Kelly and their families were having a pre-wedding pint. They’re such a lovely bunch!
The wedding itself was brilliant! the weather did not behave, the sun shone as they said their vows inside and we exited into a howling gale! There was more howling going on during the ceremony as there were four dogs present. Thali is the couples beautiful dog who they rescued outside an Indian restaurant in Tanzania, where they met. He’s a little mental but gorgeous and lovely at the same time! I managed to persuade the couple to do a little detour to the clifftops before heading to the pub. I’m so glad they did as they are some of my favourite photographs from my whole year.
“Lucy was an absolutely brilliant photographer for our wedding. She was recommended to us by a family member and we could not be more grateful to her. Our venue was not easy to get to and it was on Christmas Eve! Despite all these challenges, Lucy was happy to accommodate us and quick to respond to all our questions. She captured the joy and spirit of our day and we will treasure our pictures. I cannot recommend Lucy strongly enough.” (Kelly)
I had such a lovely day! I was definitely out of my comfort zone, which was scary but very rewarding at the same time. If anyones getting married in Tintagel and would like me to come along, please get in touch! Just visit my contact page.

“Lucy’s creative talent & enthusiasm was so obvious when we met her for the first time; we felt completely confident about her photographing our wedding. On the day, our guests commented on how lovely Lucy was as she subtly bounced around capturing so many clever shots. Our day was very colourful and the way she captured this was beyond my expectations…just perfect. She worked her socks off for us, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” VIEW GALLERY
