Kerry & Will elope to Cornwall
Well, it is hard to put into words just HOW magical Kerry and Will’s Cornwall Elopements was but if you scroll along I am sure you can see for yourself. Their intimate, romantic and emotional Cornwall Elopements ceremony set the mood for the day, followed by some extreme hiking along the cornish coastline to a secret beach, which was totally worth it as we were rewarded by a clean empty beach, a giant sea cave and the most gorgeous dramatic sky! The huge waves crashing against the cliffs just made for the best backdrop for their fun and wild couple shoot. Ah so dreamy….and to mention they did this in 45mph gale force winds without a single complaint. True hardcore adventurers!
Why did you choose to Elope and what inspired you?
Myself & William always wanted to have a smaller Cornwall Elopements wedding, something that would mean more to us as a couple – rather than the never-ending guest list. Once we started looking into weddings, we so quickly fell in love with the idea of eloping. Something felt so magical about the idea of running away just the two of us!
We have family connections to Cornwall so that’s where we began our searches for the perfect elopement wedding location. We couldn’t believe our luck when we stumbled across our Venue it’s literally a stones throw away from where we make memories as a couple. It felt like it was meant to be. & honestly, it really really was. Cornwall is where our hearts are. A huge part of our lives. So it made just perfect sense to begin the next chapter there. Moments after becoming husband & wife we were stepping on the same beaches that we spend building sandcastles with our family, eating fish & chips from our favourite takeaway & watching the sunset over our favourite Cornish seas.
I’m surprised how simple it was to plan an elopement!
Goodness, it’s so refreshing to only have to think about yourselves. We got engaged & married in less than a year. All our timings fell into place, & luckily – Covid only made us have to wait an extra 3 weeks!
Tell us a little bit about what you chose to wear and why,
I went for a Boho style dress that I really felt would compliment the Cornish coastlines. The textures of the lace & the extra little details like the sleeves just made it so unique & special. The dress is Madi Lane, & was the comfiest thing to wear! (Even when carrying half the beach & sea!) I went for bare feet, because quite frankly who needs shoes in Cornwall!
Our florist, hair and makeup
Our Florist Holly- Three Flowers wow. She’s a local lady to where I live. My bouquet was just out of this world. I decided to have dried grasses & flowers so I could keep them in our home forever. My make-up was done by the talented Georgina Yates & I couldn’t recommend her more. Throughout the whole process she went above & beyond in all her care. & on the day I felt like a real queen. She’s just a dream. Even without a makeup trial I felt so at ease. Everything was just PERFECT.
Do you have tips and advice for other couples eloping
If you want a day to totally lose yourselves & be completely & utterly in a bubble of love, just do it. A real magical intimacy that’s so sacred for just the two of you.
Our Photographer – Enchanted Brides Photography – Cornwall Elopements
I have no words for our experience with Enchanted Brides Photography. To me finding the right elopement photographer was probably more important than finding my dress, & I honestly feel totally blessed that I found Jo & Patrick. What they do is just pure, pure magic. Your wedding is just one day of your entire life, something that those little moments can easily become forgotten. Those feelings, those touches, that emotion – all gone within a blink of an eye. But my goodness, being able to have all that captured is so so special. A photograph to take you right back to that moment, a video to give you goosebumps as you relive that special kiss – memories to really last a lifetime. Jo & Patrick have given us that. Not only that, but they are probably the coolest, nicest pair of humans! They made us feel like we shared our day with loved ones even though it was just us two. We felt like we were hanging out with friends that we’d known a lifetime. Sharing our day with them was something we’ll remember forever. We have so much awe & gratitude for everything they have done! Professional in their own unique way. Not just photographers. An experience. People you’ll meet & never forget.
What is your favourite memory from the day
The whole day from start to finish, I feel heartbroken it’s all over! But probably dipping our feet in the sea & seeing two little seals bobbing up & down in front of us!
