After 10 years of capturing weddings I have met some incredibly talented people. There are many that I have worked with many times over and here are just a small few of my favourite suggestions.
Buffalo Bar – Its an airstream… with cocktails and some really lovely people making them. They ‘serve great times’ indeed
Why not bring a little Cornwall to your wedding, whether it is in the county or anywhere across the country, Knightor Winery make the most beautiful still and sparkling wines as well as a fabulous Cornish vermouth that is perfect for a welcome drink of a Cornish spritz. They have recently launched a wine for weddings package that includes discount on wine for your wedding, advice from the winery team on pairing and a heap of information on how to go about choosing the right amount of wine for your wedding day.
I can honestly say that the most relax couples have a planner by their side and Jenny Wren absolutely amazing. Her calming presence, ultra efficiency and incredible eye for detail makes her one of my favourite people to work with.

If you are still looking for your perfect venue, there are so many places to chose from that all offer something quite unique. But if, like me, you love to be outdoors and want to have a venue that is is by the sea or in the middle of a woodland, or you just want a space you can truly chill and have for the weekend, here are just a few of my favourite places I have had the pleasure of working at before.
