Elopements in CornwallKim + TrevorHotel Tresanton - St. Mawes - Cornwall

Wow 2018 has been a very busy year for me and yet to look at my blog you would think I had done nothing! Now that the kids are back to school it is high time I start sharing some of the incredible weddings and elopements I have been lucky enough to photograph over the last few months. And where better to start than this beautiful Hotel Tresanton Elopement.

When Kim and Trevor contacted me regarding their elopement photography I couldn’t have been more excited. I absolutely love intimate weddings and elopements and this couple had decided that their day was just going to be them and their beloved collie dog Ben. As a collie owner myself I thought that sounded absolutely perfect, especially as their favourite spots on the Roseland peninsula also happen to be some of my favourite haunts too! Sometimes bookings just feel like they are meant to be.

This was my first visit to Hotel Tresanton as an elopement photographer and what an amazing spot it is with stunning views over the picture perfect fishing village of St Mawes – and so dog friendly! After a beautiful, intimate ceremony in the Dog’s Bar, Kim and Trevor enjoyed bubbles on the sunny terrace before we headed off to Porthcurnick for a walk. Kim and Trevor are big fans of The Hidden Hut (who isn’t?!) and when I arrived ahead of the couple and told the staff there that the newlyweds were on their way they gave them the loveliest, warmest welcome, treating them to a celebratory ice cream and even helping us out with a confetti shot!

After a wander on the beach and a quick walk along the coast path we headed down to another of the couple’s favourite spots, St Anthony Head, for more epic Cornish views before returning to the Tresanton where the couple were to enjoy an evening meal in their beautiful private garden which had been decorated so thoughtfully and beautifully by the hotel staff.

This Cornish elopement was just perfect – personal, relaxed, romantic, intimate – I absolutely loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for asking me to be your elopement photographer Kim & Trevor, I will never forget your wonderful day.
