I’m delighted to share the lovely wedding of Ross and Sarah who got married down in Cornwall, their day was captured by Wedding Photographer Toby Lowe.
Do tell us about the couple
Ross and Sarah have a passionate love of Cornwall. They spend their spare time travelling down from the South East in order to surf and enjoy it’s beautiful beaches. It was the perfect place for them to get married.
Please tell us a little bit about the day and how it went
The day was utterly unique from beginning to end. The main part of the day was held at the very lovely Tresillian Manor on the outskirts of Newquay. The bride and groom had beautifully styled The Manor with their own personal touches. The entire wedding party was staying at Tresillian giving the venue a very homely feel. For the ceremony the bride and groom had opted for something daring and adventurous – getting married in the subterranean caverns of Carnglaze Caverns. Despite having this diverse mix of venues the day flowed seamlessly without a hitch. I loved the relaxed feel of the wedding party, there was a real genuine warm happiness enveloping the day.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself
I was given my first camera at the age of 12. I have not stopped taking pictures since. My main passion is for photographing people, which is one of the many reasons why I love photographing weddings so much.
How would you describe your photography style?
Every wedding is a story. My style blends reportage with fine art imagery. My aim is to capture the story and document it in a timeless beautiful way.
What did you love about the day?
Aside from the fact that it was a wonderful wedding to document, there was also a photographic geeky side to me that loved the diversity of venues. Both were massively photographically different – the cavern for example had a ban on flash due to nesting bats, all I could use was the limited ambient light (wide apertures with a steady hand were needed). Tresillian Manor was a more standard location to photograph, but possessed some amazing locations such as the library which were just perfect for iconic fine art photographs.
