I love shooting weddings at Tunnels Beaches, it’s only a 10 minute drive from my home and it’s probably one of the most stunning wedding venues in the the UK. There aren’t many place where you get your own private beach for the day and on a sunny day I can’t think of anywhere more romantic to say your vows. It’s also a pretty epic spot to shoot portraits as the sun goes down!
Rebecca and Dave live in the Midlands but have a strong connection with the South West as Dave’s parents live in Looe on the south coast of Cornwall and Tunnels turned out to be the perfect setting for their wedding celebrations.
I spent the morning at ‘Tides’, the purpose built accommodation, on the cliffs above Tunnels Beaches where both Rebecca and Dave and their families getting ready on different floors. This was great as I could flit between them and cover Dave getting ready as well as Rebecca and her bridesmaids. While the girls got the balcony with the sea views Dave was consigned to the basement floor which sounds worse than it was!
Tunnels have their own split screen VW camper van which did shuttle runs between Tides and the venue delivering Dave, the Bridesmaids and the families before finally returning for Rebecca and her Dad. As a surprise Rebecca had arrange for her Mum to walk down the aisle with their dog Doogie. The joke is that Dave loves Doogie more than Rebecca and judging by his reaction when he saw him I don’t think Rebecca was too far wrong!
The sun shone throughout their wonderful day which was punctuated with much laughter and the odd tear. The real highlight for me was Rebecca and Dave who were just brilliant fun to work for though the limbo dancing, portraits at sunset and the guests lining the Tunnel with sparklers for the happy couple to walk through were also great fun to document.
Thank you Rebecca and Dave for being such excellent clients, I hope we get to share a drink, or two, on one of your future jaunts to the west country.
