St Ives Guildhall Wedding

Amy and James

Amy and James got wed at St Ives Guildhall on a blustery summer’s day in Cornwall. I’ve known James Eddy for a fair old while now. Indeed, I already have some great memories of fun times with him. Therefore his own personal love story: ‘a tale of proposal and acceptance’ was music to my ears. He’d met a girl called Amy. They’d fallen in love. They were getting married. In other words the age old love story which meant it was a time for celebration! What better place for James and Amy to tie the knot than St Ives Guildhall.


Both Amy and James are from Cornwall and live/work there. Therefore it was only natural that they should get married there to. Above all, St Ives Guildhall had to be favourite. St Ives is the town where Amy works and where James’ artwork sits in many galleries. James and I worked together as part of an artists collective at the Lorient Festival Interceltique in Brittany, France. Enough about James though! Amy looked stunning in her beautiful dress! With her best friend as maid of honour and stylist we couldn’t go wrong on the photo front! *

The Island

Amy and James’ reception was supposed to take place at St Nicholas Chapel on The Island. Originally called ‘Pendinas’, which means ‘fortified headland’, ‘The Island’ is not really an island at all, but a small, grassy peninsula connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. In addition, the once promontory fort with a protective ditch and rampart, juts out between the harbour and Porthmeor beach.
Unfortunately, St Nicholas Chapel was closed for renovations. However, this did not stop Amy and James heading to The Island for a post wedding walk.

So it was we left St Ives Guildhall and wended our way across the harbour beach at low tide. You can see why this is Amy and James’ favourite place to hang out. It is absolutely stunning! We shot photos at the coastguard lookout which provides spectacular views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy lighthouse. According to James, you can sometimes see Dolphins and Porpoises playing in the bay.

Thank’s to Amy and James once again for having me as your photographer and witness. What a day!
