So on Saturday we had planned a mini shoot for Kenny Green and his company Ecowagon Campervan Conversions based in Redruth.
Deciding a time of day to shoot became rather difficult as after 3-4 weeks of wall to wall sunshine, Saturday it decided to absolutely pour down with rain and give us some wind to go with it.
But we met at his workshop and headed over to a campsite where one of his customers was set up and we convoyed with Kenny and his other customer.
Requiring to be photographed were two Volkswagen T5 vans converted by Kenny into campers. One white with a family feel to its set up and one black designed for a couple of adventurers.
Here are the images we produced with the excellent co operation from 3 wonderful little children and two beautiful vans in the Cornish rain….
When I got a message via facebook regarding booking a photoshoot for a Mother and Father who were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary I jumped at the chance.
At 9am this morning we met at Crantock to take advantage of the morning light and the quiet beach. They explained that their family never all gets a chance to get together due to their distances and commitments and they wanted some relaxed informal style photos to capture memories. So here are a selection of images that we took today. They were absolutely brilliant, a close family and lots of fun to photograph as you can see it shone through in their images.
Did you know you can hire me for family photoshoots? You don’t always have to be that family member who is always the one behind the camera. Especially if you are coming on holiday to our beautiful county.
So this Sunday we took some time out to relax and also to recharge our batteries after a very busy few weeks. We decide to get up early before the roads got busy and see a few places we had not been before. So we headed over to the beautiful Porthcurno which was followed by a drive to Penzance to take a look at Jubilee Pool and then along to Marazion for breakfast at The Goldolphin Arms which I have to say was the best all round breakfast experience I have had since moving to Cornwall. The food was piping hot and delicious, the service was outstanding and well the view from the window table along with the Hazlephron Jam was perfection and we shall be returning very soon. We rounded off our Sunday with photographing a wedding at Cosawes Barton before finally relaxing down in the evening after an adventure filled day.
Well if there was a day for a wedding then it was yesterday, I must say it was definitely the hottest afternoon that I have photographed a wedding.
A perfect bluebird sky and the smell of wild flowers filled the air of Scott & Rachel’s wedding venue of Cosawes Barton and the music of Kaj rung true.
Here a selection of images from a beautiful afternoon…
Is there anything better than a costal walk followed by food and a drink under the sunshine in a pub garden?
Well we think not, so we headed over to the beautiful The Travellers Rest based in Mawgan Porth after a wonderful coastal stroll.
We spoke to the owners Natalie and Martin who said that they took over the Travellers in November 2016 after moving to Cornwall from Edinburgh where they spent 8 years in hotel management. Our families had already moved to Cornwall and we always knew that we’d like to move here eventually. We fell in love with the pub as customers and would always visit when down on holiday.
Natalie continued that in June 2016, she spent 6 weeks in Cornwall and having driven passed the Travellers thought to myself it ever came up for lease then we would go for it. Two days later we received a newsletter from St Austell Brewery with available pub tenancies which featured the Travellers. We are firm believers that everything happens for a reason so went through the application process and haven’t looked back since.
What wonderful people to take over a well established pub and create such wonderful food, whilst visiting Travellers Rest I sat in the sunshine drinking a Tarquins and tonic before heading inside for food. I had the two dishes which are much loved favourites of the customers who come to the pub, The Calamari followed by the Teriyaki Beef which were both packed full of flavour and cooked perfectly.
At the Travellers Rest they aim to provide a warm and friendly welcome, a relaxed atmosphere, serving home cooked dishes that have wherever possible been created from locally sourced produce.
They are able to cater for dietary requirements including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free meals. As well as being dog friendly and catering for families/
They also like us love their live music and have at least one band night a month as well as acoustic music every other Sunday.
You’ll find them serving up and delicious carvery on a Sunday served 12-3pm. They have extra plus sides to their venue of Free parking, free Wifi and a beer garden perfect for those summer days.
I think of myself very lucky to be able to capture images for people on their perfect day. Here are a selection of images captured by myself of Robert & Faye’s elopement wedding at the delightful wedding venue of Cosawes Barton in Ponsanooth.
