The Meudon, Cornwall.
As wedding venues go, The Meudon Hotel is a hidden gem in Cornwall’s crown. It nestles in a lush, semi-tropical valley on the south coast, sloping gently down to a private beach. For years, it has been run by the same family who cater for each facet of your wedding day.
Bride to be Julia had worked with the hotel team to ensure everything was perfect, including the branches entwined with real flowers to form the archway beneath which she was to be wed. Inside, the top table was also adorned by another branch laden with summer blooms.
Meanwhile, I had been to reckie the beach for possible post-wedding shots of the happy couple. The walk down to the beach wends it’s way through evergreens and poplars presenting many photo opportunities amongst the stunning scenery.
After the couple were married on the garden’s mid-tier, we had fun shooting some usher and bridesmaid groups before cream-teas were served on the uppermost patio section of the beautiful gardens. The unconfined joy of all-comers was evident at this wedding. You could tell just how happy everyone was for the couple!
A brief and unexpected downpour sent the guests inside, which was fine because dinner was about to commence. Amongst the dinner table activities in was a competition to draw a caricature of the newly weds. Check the blog photos for some of the more interesting outcomes!
Time after post-dinner speeches allowed me to take the couple on a walk down to the beach and shoot amongst the breathtaking landscape.
Thanks to Jac and Julia for being a lovely couple and the Meudon Hotel for a great bash and incredible food!
