Leah & Jon's Scorrier House Wedding

Another weekend saw me leaving Devon to travel down to West Cornish lands. I'm going to have to rename myself as a 'Cornwall Wedding Photographer' at this rate, with this weekend seeing the second of my third weddings in Cornwall this month! Not that I am complaining mind, I love Cornwall almost as much as Devon, and so it is lovely to share that love with my couples that chose to wed there. Once such couple was the lovely Jon and Leah, huge Poldark fans, they'd fallen in love with the glorious Cornish coastline as well as each other and this was were they decided to hold their celebrations with friends and family. Leah and Jon had officially married in Japan, where they had been living for a year, so this ceremony was to cement their wedding vows in front of their loved ones. Alas, the rather inclement weather that keeps Devon and Cornwall so lush, meant that a walk to the tin mines nearby was out of the question: it rained, boy, oh boy, did it rain! But that didn't matter, for based in the gorgeous wedding venue that is Scorrier House, Leah and Jon's not-so-outside-ceremony was able to take place in the imposing and grand main hall of the house. No sooner had Leah safely made it down the sweeping staircase did they then the entire congregation burst into song, and I had to hold myself for jigging along so I could concentrate on taking photos! A fun-filled, lively and lovely ceremony seemed to perfectly reflect Leah and Jon's senses of humour. Followed by an equally entertaining speech from groom Jon, who liked to push the line as possible and was rewarded with some great laughs! And somehow, in the midst of some extremely epic downpours, we were afforded a very brief window of dry weather for Jon and Leah to explore the grounds of Scorrier House, where they wanted to have a few images taken of them with their symbolic red umbrellas, one of which they had brought back from Japan for the occasion (it is traditional to be photographed with a red umbrella on your wedding day in Japan - with the colour red meaning life and warding off evil). It was a wonderful day, despite the weather, and Leah, Jon - I wish you both the very best of happiness for your married lives together.
