Jon and Sarah got married in February at St Piran’s Church, Perranarworthal, with the reception at one of my favourite Cornish venues, The Rosevine. It was a really lovely, personal affair, with their closest friends and family – most of which were all staying at The Rosevine, too – and they did it their way: no first dance, no proper speeches (although they couldn’t stop a few words from being said…!) no rigid traditions stuck to, and I love that. Indeed, I think a big part of why they chose me to cover their day was because I don’t set up or pose people at all (their initial enquiry even said ‘we think your style would be ideal for two people who mostly try to avoid being in photos!’); they wanted someone who would cover and capture their day ‘as is’, and hopefully that’s what I achieved.
I started my coverage with Sarah’s bridal prep at The Rosevine, where I was also able to cover Jon getting ready as he was only a few rooms down. I loved getting lots of lovely shots of their 5 month old daughter – I love kids at weddings, actually, can’t beat them for photographic material! – who you’ll see pops up quite a few times over the coming shots! We all then went over the King Harry Ferry in vintage coaches to the ceremony at St Piran’s Church. It was the first time I’d shot there; very pretty, with a very relaxed and laid back vicar too, which is always a bonus.
We then all went back to the lovely Rosevine for their wedding breakfast, impromptu speeches, dancing, and a fabulous firework display to top the night off; a grand day.
Here are a selection of photos from their wedding:
“We received the photos today. We loved them, you did a super job capturing the atmosphere and spirit of the day. Lots of lovely shots not only of us but all the guests. The photos will allow us to re-live our special day in years to come which is very precious.
Thank you for all your time and effort – not only are you a great photographer but a lovely person to have had share our celebrations as you fitted in seamlessly with all our family and friends.”
- Yen & Rich
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing Yen and Rich’s fab day at The Rosevine – an absolutely gorgeous Georgian house, right by the sea, near Portscatho. They had exclusive use of the property and grounds for the whole weekend, and I think that really added to the friendly and intimate feel of their wedding – I can wholeheartedly recommend choosing The Rosevine if you’re on the lookout for a wedding venue in Cornwall.
I really enjoyed myself with Yen, Rich and their families; everyone was just so relaxed, and with some guests travelling from as far afield as Hong Kong, I’m sure they were enjoying the extra benefit of a luxury holiday in Cornwall, as well as attending such a beautiful wedding!
I received some very kind feedback from Yen & Rich, which you can see at the top of this post – and they also sent me a lovely thank you card, too!
Anyway, enough of me – on to a selection of their photographs:
I received this lovely thank you card from Yen & Rich, whose wedding I photographed recently at The Rosevine, near Portscatho. It’s always fantastic to receive such great feedback, and lovely to see one of my images used too! Their message read:
“Dear Alan, thank you once again for doing such a great job on our wedding day. We loved so many of the photos it was hard to choose which ones to frame. My family and friends also loved them and commented on how friendly, patient and unintrusive you were on the day. All the best to you and your family.”
Thanks, Yen & Rich, and I’ll be sure to blog some of your wedding images soon…

On Saturday I was at The Rosevine, a gorgeous venue on the Roseland peninsula, for the equally gorgeous wedding of Yen and Rich! It was the first time I’d shot a wedding there, and I hope to do lots more, as it’s such a beautiful place to get married; a grand house overlooking the sea, with fantastic lawns and views.
Yen and Rich had the place all to themselves and their family, making it a really personal and special time – including speeches outside, an impromptu game of football, and a fab firework display to cap an amazing day. Needless to say I’m looking forward to sharing more photos from their wedding very soon…
