“The Rosevine?” I said…..”Sure, I’d love to shoot your wedding”.
I had no idea where the Rosevine was at the point that Faye and Chris contacted me in what seems like eons ago. “It’s in Cornwall” they said. “Very good”, I thought.
You know, I’ve been to Cornwall many times, I shot weddings there several times but what I wasn’t quite ready for was the complete loveliness of The Rosevine, nor, in fact for the emotion and tender moments that would flow from Faye and Chris’s wedding all those months ago.
I headed down to Cornwall the night before and arrived at the venue fresh and ready to document another wedding. I happened to stumble upon Faye during her bridal prep just around the same time she was going to give gifts to her bridesmaids. I don’t recall what was in the gift box, but I do recall the tears and embracing that followed.
I hung around a little while, before heading downstairs to meet a nervous, but almost equally as emotional Chris.
At this point I knew it was going to be a good wedding.
Turns out, it was a *great* wedding.
As the page boys announced the entrance of the beautiful Faye, a chorus of tears erupted throughout the room (which by this point, was bathed in lovely sunshine). I think at one point I was the only one not dabbing my eyes.
There was an almost audible crackle of electricity as Faye and Chris clapped eyes on each other for the first time.
Ceremony and formalities over with it was back on with the crying, hugging, loving, dancing, more crying, lots more hugging and everything else that went together to make this Rosevine, Cornwall Wedding so special.
