Me and my partner Luke have been away to Cornwall for a camping holiday both this year and last year and we absolutely love it there! I hadn’t actually been until last year however a couple of our friends went there a lot so we decided to give it a go! It was always somewhere I’d wanted to visit but I’d never made time to do so, usually opting to go somewhere a bit more exotic. Cornwall however did not disappoint! It’s about a four hour drive from our home in Shropshire so we decided to break the journey up this time round by stopping in a Premier Inn in Bristol for one night. I really debated whether or not to take a camera with me, as much as I love photography I was seriously considering just taking a complete break from it for a week, especially seeing as I had a wedding the first day back. In the end I decided to take one with me with just my 35mm lens attached, I decided that if I didn’t want to use it it could just stay in the car while we were there! I’m really glad I did take it along in the end because I was able to capture some of Cornwall’s (and Bristol’s lovely premier inn) beauty.
When I’m not photographing weddings I absolutely adore photographing flowers, during wedding season I don’t always have as much time as I’d like to work on my personal projects so I was thrilled when we paid a visit to Helligan Gardens at just how many flowers there were so I went slightly wild! Although I did keep harping on about how gorgeous a location it would be for a couple shoot! Or indeed a wedding! (I’ve got no idea if they do weddings but perhaps they should…)
We also paid a visit to Lands End and St Ives while we were there. The day we went to Lands End the weather was pretty awful however there was a beautiful mist hanging in the air which made for some pretty beautiful photographs. St Ives is always lovely, this time we decided to park at Carbis Bay (St Ives is lovely, but the parking is terrible, as we found out last year!) and walk the costal path into St Ives, I can’t recommend this route enough, it was beautiful!
I’m so excited to have my first wedding in Cornwall this year, any excuse to visit is a good one in my opinion!
