Wild Abandonment – A Cornish Elopement Shoot

I love, love, love the idea of eloping… running away, just the two of you to somewhere beautiful. Saying your vows to one another in private, a perfect moment in time that only the two of you are present in.

It was while shooting Nessa and Russ’s beautiful elopement earlier this year that I got to meet Maya and Tom of BoHo Cornwall. A little part of paradise in this part of the world, a place you can run away to to be wed in a part of the country that is utterly divine. Where the barren, rambling Cornish moors meet the wild Atlantic ocean.

It is like running away to get married at the edge of the world….

So incredibly inspired but the talent in Cornwall and our shared love for elopement weddings, the three of us came together recently  to work on an inspirational shoot, showcasing local suppliers and the beauty of BoHo Cornwall and the surrounding areas.

Think Wuthering Heights…. wild abandonment… windy moorlands and winter sunshine. Crazy wind stripped trees and candle lit ceremonies. An intimate and cosy table for two. Hedgerow foraged flowers and feathers making the most beautiful bouquets and jewellery inspired by the land and sea. Simple yet lovely personal touches and a whole heap of romance.

Exactly what it is to elope.

Running away from it all and sharing a perfect moment together.

Caroline & Darren

Of all the wonderful people I am lucky enough to meet through my work, Caroline and Darren I have known by far the longest! Caroline for well over 15 years! We have partied together, gone to countless festivals together, holidayed together. Caroline inspired me to take my year out to Australia, she has mopped up many tears and been a truly amazing friend for so many years.

I was there the day Caroline met Darren, and the time that they got together. I watched their relationship grow through every stage and so it was such an honour to be asked by them to there to witness their marriage at Wakehurst Place in one of the greatest capacities… through my camera. The little magic box that gave me total, un-restricted access to the whole of their day.

It is hard to find the right words but Darren and Caroline are amazing. The way they just ‘get’ one another, how they make each other laugh. The support they have for each other that knows no bounds. They are truly a perfect match.

Caroline and Darren designed and planned their day froms scratch, with amazing family and friends who chipped in along the way. From Caroline’s Mum who stitched more bunting that I could imagine, sewed felt hearts and created the bouquets and flowers, to Darren who’s a crazy talented designer and designed the amazing and amazing original stationary. Check out their table names, on ale bottles (a shared passion!) really were a work of art! Their wedding was a labour of love, months in the making and was absolutely amazing to watch grow from ideas and come together to be a perfect day.

We partied late into the night to good old dancing music supplied by The Mixtape and it felt like being back at a festival with a group of friends.

In posh frocks and suits.

With glow sticks.

I love you two!

Georgie & Peter

I have been on such a blogging hiatus and for no reason really, just the usual busy-ness that comes with end of season crazy and now I have found myself finally able to share some more of the gorgeousness I have witnessed this year , starting with two people who make me grin like crazy whenever I think about them! Two of the nicest souls I have ever met, who’s wedding was breathtaking. Homespun, full of fun and so very personal.

Georgie and Pete were married earlier this year in London. A unique and personal city wedding with a British & Cypriot flavour, seasoned and spiced by super talented food stylist Georgie and overseen by calm and gentle Pete. Two people who are just so perfectly suited.

Along with their families, Georgie and Pete created their day from scratch, with a blank canvas of 45 Millbank as their venue. From doing their own decorating and crafting their own florals, to bringing in their own chefs to all the amazing details dotted around the venue. Bicycles and balloons featured throughout and it was such a gorgeous explosion of warm colours.

Friends flocked to watch these two get wed and smiles, hugging, laughter and excitement was so engrained in every moment of their day. This was a union of not just two amazing people, but two lovely families too.

I absolutely adored being a part of your day Georgie and Pete and wish you so much love and happiness… I cannot wait to see you both again very soon!

It is with huge thanks to the lovely Jayne Sacco for her help on the day too, Jayne was amazing at covering the boys prep and being so ace shooting with me. x

 

Ellie - Such a cute wedding – looks super fun! Gorgeous photos too goes without saying!
