Chris and Rachel married in June but wanted an extra keep sake from their day due to the rainy weather they had. So they decided to have a post wedding shoot the week after.
They had fun and frolics around the beautiful St Ives, i love the contrast between the fun sweet shots and the more dramatic coastline ones. I am sure they are struggling to choose which images to get printed hehe!
Thanks so much to the brilliant Keith Riley Photography for sharing their images with us today, here is what they had to say about the shoot;
“We met Chris and Rachel a year prior to their wedding and we instantly got on; we also shared an enthusiasm for VW camper vans, traveling and exploring new places. Their connection and love for each other was evident from the start; we knew we would love photographing their wedding :)
The post-wedding shoot took place in an around St Ives and it was a great opportunity to be creative and get all the different shots we had discussed without being away from their guests for too long. It was a post-wedding shoot made in heaven with two truly beautiful people, whom have become our friends.”
Rachel; “Chris and I met 6 years ago this September in the little town we live in, Nuneaton, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight, possibly 3rd but after a couple of dates we were smitten! We were pretty fast movers and moved in with each other after 3 months :-) Just over 3 years later Chris proposed to me in the most romantic fashion…..”
“Being from a midlands town we had always loved travelling around Britain whether it was to the coast or up to the lake district. On April 1st 2010 it was my 26th birthday and Chris took me up to a lovely bed and breakfast in the lake district, I presumed he was taking me for a birthday break but it turned out to be so much more! We woke up on the morning of the 2nd April and Chris was adamant he wanted climb Skiddaw (the 3rd highest mountain in Britain!) I reluctantly agreed and we set off, the snow was really thick and 2 hours into the walk i was shattered, he kept me going by promising a picnic at the top!! When we got to the top I don’t think Chris had realised how windy it would being so high up (we could barely stand!) anyway Chris still said lets sit down, I moaned and said it was too windy and cold, he said please just sit down so I turned to sit and as I turned back round Chris was on one knee with the most beautiful ring in his hand chosen totally by himself, it was the most perfect proposal and I immediately said yes!”
“Just over 2 years later after tears and tantrums of planning our wedding we got married on June 2nd 2012 at the beautiful Porthminster Hotel down in St Ives, Cornwall and had the most perfect day of our lives captured amazingly by Keith and Neda. We had loads of different aspects to our beach themed wedding that we wanted captured and they didn’t miss a thing!”
“Although the wedding day was perfect there was a sprinkling of rain and as you are so busy on the actual day you don’t get the chance to have all the different shots you would like so we were lucky enough to have a post wedding shoot the Wednesday after the wedding in and around the whole of st ives, including the beach, the cobbled streets, the fields and our amazing 50′s style apartment.”
“With Chris and I being based in the midlands we were really worried about getting a photographer as we would have to get a south based photographer that we didn’t know. I found Keith Riley Photography online and I was really impressed with their photography, we met Keith and Neda before the wedding and decided on that same day that they were the photographers for us. Not only have we got the most amazing photos from our wedding day, we have additional shots from our post wedding photo shoot that we can treasure for ever. Everyone that sees our photos comments and everyone at the wedding said we had the best photographers they had ever seen! Above all Keith and Neda have become our friends and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome of everything :-)”
Thanks so much to Chris and Rachel for sharing their story with us today.
Have a wonderful weekend lovelies XOXO Lou
