A Breath of Fresh Air...

So as you've probably noticed by now, there's been a fair few changes around here! I've had a few questions flying around at me and I realised - It was time to make a little post to update you all on Salt & Sea Co. and the changes that have been underway.

Wistmans Wood, Dartmoor: An Adventurous Engagement Session with Abz & Dave

A few months back, before the warmth of spring had returned to us, I ventured for the first time to the incredible rolling hills of Dartmoor in Devon to capture Abz & Dave for their engagement session. 
It was one of those incredible mornings where I woke up and it was barely light, driving up to the next county I dipped in and out of blankets of mist and banked around sleepy creeks and glowing country lanes and I knew it was going to be a magical experience. 
By the time I reached Dartmoor I could barely believe my eyes. The light was magical, swapping between a hazy gold and dramatic clouds of fog. I swear I always say this, but this is probably my favourite engagement shoot to date! I may have gone a little bit mad and taken wayyyyyy too many photographs but in my eyes, there's no such thing. 
Abz & Dave were such a great couple to capture. Not only because they're my friends and I'm super excited to be capturing their wedding in September but because their love is so playful and real. Much love to these fabulous twosome, I'll let the pictures do the speaking.

A Sparkling & Dreamy Winter Wedding in South Wales: Josh & Heulwen

Being a summer girl and lover of all things meadow flowers, nature and warm weather - I always thought the idea of a winter wedding was a little chilly, but back in November, I had the pleasure and fortune to photograph the absolutely divine wedding of Josh & Heulwen on the Gower Peninsula of South Wales and suddenly, I could see why a dreamy, romantic and sparkling winter wedding was actually a pretty darn swell idea after all.

The Best of 2016: Salty Sea Co. Cornish Wedding Photographer Highlights

2016 was the summer I graduated and launched my little project, Salty Sea Photography Co. into the real world. We had the pleasure of photographing 7 weddings from Cornwall to Kent and even South Wales, venturing to parts of the island we had never seen before and having a blast along the way. We witnessed some really beautiful ceremonies in incredible venues and ticked Bath's Prior Park College Wedding Venue off my 'wish list'. We were so fortunate that all of the couples we worked with were 100% awesome and just darn lovely and we've compiled a list of the highlights of the year.

Jo & Ash's Real Life Engagement in Hyde Park, London: Capturing the Moment

You may well be familiar with the concept of an "engagement shoot" by now - little photo sessions where the photographer gets together with the couple before a wedding to get to know each other, make some fun images wearing some nice clothes in the couple's favourite spots. But what does "engagement shoot" really mean? I mean... they're already engaged right? They're already planning their wedding and most likely announced it. I sometimes prefer to call them "couple shoots" or "love documentaries..." <-- okay, maybe that sounds a bit soppy, maybe not that one. Let's go with couple shoot. They're more of a fun and exciting session, day out and excuse to make some truly great images and I enjoy them immensly. BUT, what if you got to photograph the ACTUAL moment at which the couple got engaged? You got to capture the sweet moments when one asked the other to be theirs forever and ever, the expression, tears and emotion that followed and give them the gift of immortalising those moments and being able to look at them forever more. That's a real engagement shoot. 
Here's the very real and authentic engagement shoot of the incredible Jo & Ash in Hyde Park gardens, London. It has to be hands down my most favourite engagement shoot, for many many reasons, and I'm about to show you why.

Hannah & Isaac's Vintage Car Autumn Wedding on the Lizard: Cornwall Wedding Photography

Back in September, George and I photographed a beautifully colourful wedding just down the road from where we live. It was so wonderful being among the familiar rolling river country of the Lizard peninsula and although there was a thick Cornish mizzle, Hannah & Isaac had a most beautiful day full of laughter, romance & pure joy. Being an Art graduate, Hannah had designed and made the arts and crafts herself and had decorated the marquee in a refreshing & autumnal myriad of colour & texture. There were pom-pom curtains, wicker picnic baskets, trestle tables and local Roskilly's ice cream in abundance. With views over the rolling countryside and Isaac's dad's collection of vintage cars, the setting was quintessentially British & the what a perfect couple. George had the pleasure of growing up with Isaac & Hannah as the three were old school friends and we had known since the early days that a wedding would one day be on the cards! Hannah & Isaac were one of those perfect couples that you always knew were meant to be, and what a treat and honour it was to capture their incredibly precious day.
