Polhawn Fort Wedding

Tom and Anna

Wedding at Polhawn Fort, Cornwall


The incredible setting of Cornwall’s wild south coast plays host to Polhawn Fort. This napoleonic fort sits perched on the Rame Head heritage coast.
In addition, a Polhawn Fort wedding encompasses much history. Indeed, this venue has a canon and drawbridge and was apparently built to discourage Napoleon from ever invading. It could be why the walls are 8 feet thick!
Tom and Anna’s wedding was full of fun and laughter from the outset. For instance, the happy couple made use of the fort’s Grand Hall for the reception and it’s lush green lawn for party games. Furthermore, the beauty of the surrounding beach and cove make for stunning photo locations!

In the same vein, the interior of the fort is just as exciting!  it’s spiral staircases, four poster beds and truly medieval feeling bedrooms leave you unsure of what century you’re in! Photographing Anna getting ready felt like I’d stepped back in time. In short, it was as if she was about to marry a lord or a duke!

Wedding Wellies

Tom and Anna were a joy to work with. In other words, they enjoyed posing for photos on the rocks, Anna changing her footwear to her self-proclaimed ‘Wedding Wellies’! Her prized Silver Hunter wellie boots were the star of the show. Moreover, it’s the first time I’ve photographed a bride on her wedding day in such attire! I feel like it could become a thing. What do you think? Likewise, I’m sure Tom enjoyed helping Anna get the boots on and off!

Thank you to both Tom and Anaa’s families for all the laughs all day. Also to the wonderfaul and happy staff at Polhawn Fort who worked tirelessly all day.
