I'm an elopement wedding photographer & guide in Cornwall.
Have the elopement that you dream of; a remarkeable, adventurous and meaningful wild elopement experience in Cornwall.
Imagine your wedding day being completely yours from start to finish, with every moment tailored to what you want as a couple.
Picture reading your personal vows to each other in a unique and beautiful location, without the pressure of a big wedding.
You could say 'I do' on a clifftop at sunset.
One of the amazing things about an elopement is that it can take whatever form you want.
Maybe it's the two of you sharing your vows on a clifftop, or in front of the rolling waves on a beach, or in a woodland, or your back garden, or kayaking up a river; the possibilities are endless!
It can be whatever would mean the most to you. It might be just the two of you or it might be an intimate group of the few people that you care most deeply about.
A picnic on the beach. On a rugged clifftop with waves crashing. In a wildflower meadow with ocean views. On the balcony of a super slick air bnb. Surrounded by bluebells in the woods. Sailing up a river by boat. A dip in the sea followed by a bbq and sunset vows.
Plan your perfect day. Literally. Do it. Forget the wedding for a moment and just plan a perfect day for the two of you and then fit a ceremony around that.
Eloping isn't about 'doing it cheap' or running away, it's about having the type of day that suits you and makes your hearts sing.
There are no Rules.
Well okay, there are some rules. Buttttt, it is totally possible to skip past them joyfully and do what you want!
The main problem rule in the UK is that You can only *legally* marry in licenced venues. so that scuppers the beach idea then right? NO!
My advice is to ignore that restriction and plan the elopement wedding that you want, with the sky as the limit, and simply do the legal paperwork at another time. This gives you the freedom to have the ceremony anywhere you like.
You could hire a celebrant to marry you, or choose a family member or close friend. Or don't have anyone leading the ceremony and just say your own private vows to each other in a unique, beautiful location.
Another option is to check out one of our lovely elopement wedding venues in Cornwall, which have the licensed space to legally marry. Venues like Lusty Glaze, Tredudwell Manor, The GReen, Boho, The Scarlet & Lower Barns.
you still want awesome images, right?
That's where I come in.
I'm an experienced wedding photographer with 150+ weddings and numerous awards under my belt.
I can be your Elopement photographer, but more than that I can be a guide. I grew up in Cornwall, I know its coasts, its beaches, the quiet spots, the 'off the beaten track' places. I can make recommendations for amazing places to stay, to eat, to walk. I can point you towards other amazing suppliers that will be able to fit the vibe of your elopement.
I want you to have an unforgettable elopement experience.
Trust me, I get It.
I understand elopements and I'm very passionate about them. I've experienced it personally, my wife and I eloped back in 2016 and it was the best decision we could've made. We didn't want a big production of a wedding day, we didn't want to be centre stage. Big weddings are awesome (and I love photographing them) but it just wasn't right for us. And that's the important part right there, it's about making the right wedding decisions for you.
I understand what you want from your photography. I've 7 years+ experience of putting couples at ease with their wedding photography. I know that you want to be relaxed and not be posed endlessly, I respect that, I'm a documentary photographer at heart. My aim is to capture images that show your personality and that are totally unique to you. I have a very hands off approach to the photography, focussing on real moments, emotion, connection and fun.

I strongly believe in the power of storytelling imagery, and just because you are eloping, it doesn't mean you should miss out on that.
Your elopement is so much more than just a ceremony and a few posed shots, it's a complete experience. I want to give your adventure full coverage!
I can cover everything from a morning swim, the preparations, the build up, the first look, the vows, hiking to multiple locations, maybe a romantic picnic and taking in that first sunset as a married couple. There's so many possibilities, I just want to capture your elopement adventure for you.
