In October this year, Rhiannon and James got married at the beautiful seaside wedding venue, Tunnels Beaches at Ilfracombe. It was a gorgeous day, with the soft, autumn sunshine making everything look particularly pretty and allowing us all to enjoy an outdoor ceremony! I loved all the little touches that Rhiannon and James had organised for the day, from flip flops ‘for tired feet’ and heart sunglasses, to a seaside themed props basket, and a wonderful polka dot theme running through the day.
The bride and groom both got ready in the recently refurbished Bathhouse, although on separate floors to avoid accidentally running into each other before the ceremony! I loved Rhiannon’s walk from the Bathhouse, past the group of onlookers eagerly awaiting the bride, and down through the tunnels to where the ceremony was taking place. It must feel incredible to walk through that dark tunnel, then emerge into the light and see your groom standing with all your wedding guests waiting for you, framed by the sea and sky behind… just amazing!
It was a really relaxed and fun wedding and I loved so much about it, particularly the rather spectacular light that we enjoyed as the sun was setting. But one of my strongest memories from the day is of a lovely moment during the ceremony, when I became aware of the sound of the waves crashing on the beach next to us while Rhiannon and James were exchanging rings. What an incredible place to get married!
