Nikki and Tom’s beautiful wedding was one of those days that makes you happy to be a wedding photographer. The day started at Nikki’s parents home with plenty of bubbly on hand, and the boys met up at the St Ive Church, with handy copies of ‘Farmers Weekly‘ to keep them occupied until Nikki arrived. I should explain that they are young farmers! A special mention must go to everyone who decorated the church the previous day – Nikki, the Mums, the friends and everyone else who helped. It really did look amazing.
After the slightly quirky ceremony (vicar’s first wedding?!) I hopped in the Range Rover with Nikki & Tom for a quick detour en route to the reception. Nikki wanted to include her beloved horse in the day and had arranged for him to be at Respryn Woods. He was so well behaved – a quick attempt at eating Nikki’s bouquet was made and thwarted! – and Nikki couldn’t resist getting on for some photos. Its rare that your bride wants to ride a beautiful white horse on her wedding day so thank you Nikki!
So we were running a little late by the time we reached Lanhydrock Hotel. Tom made a beeline for his beloved tractor(!) which had been dropped off the day before. Its probably the largest wedding ‘prop’ we’ve ever encountered 🙂 Some quick photos outside and a speedy trip to the lake in the golf buggies couldn’t be missed though. The view at Lanhydrock is breathtaking and with weather like that we couldn’t ignore it. Not hard to see why its one of our favourite Cornish venues.
The cake was suitably themed – Tom is a dairy farmer after all – and the speeches were genuinely hilarious. Its not often that we’re laughing as much as the guests, but this time we really were! More guests arrived for the evening, more food was piled up for the buffet, and Nikki eventually coaxed Tom onto the dancefloor for their first dance. And when Nikki danced with her Dad afterwards there wasn’t a dry eye around.
It really was a fabulous day from start to finish, and we were happy bunnies when we drove away! Nikki & Tom we wish you all the luck in the world for a wonderful future together x
