Nadja and Bradley's Cornish Elopement Wedding at Whitsand Bay Fort

We are very lucky in Devon and Cornwall that there are so many glorious venues to photograph weddings at. One of my favourite wedding venues for elopements and intimate weddings is Whitsand Bay Fort. Perched on the edge of the cliffs on the stunning Cornish coastline just across the water from Devon, Whitsand Bay Fort is in an enviable position. Nadja and Bradley’s elopement wedding took place inside the ancient fort buildings, celebrated alongside the gathering of Bradley's closest Devon family and and Nadja's nearest and dearest from her native Germany. After the ceremony, Bradley and Nadja, who is 7 months pregnant, impressively made swift work of the trek down the cliffside to the beach so that they could have some photographs of the two of them with the beautiful Cornish backdrop. What a day it was too! An unlikely spring day: freezing cold, overcast, very windy...but my, oh my, that moody sky, those muted tones, in my eyes, one of the most perfect skies to reflect the rugged atmospheric beauty of Cornwall. Bradley and Nadja were wonderful to photograph, I am a documentary wedding photographer by nature and approach my weddings as such: no cheesy posing, or bossing my couples around, instead for the couple shots I tend to spot a lovely backdrop and encourage the natural connection between my couples to lead the photographs. Bradley and Nadja had such a natural, warm and loving connection it flowed so well and they look so content in their photographs together! It was one of those weddings in one of those places where I had to pinch myself that this is my job. There was no doubting it was a day about two people (soon to be three!) very much in love. Nadja, Bradley - I hope you have a long and happy married life together, and I wish you all the best for the birth of your new arrival! What a year it has been for you already! Congratulations!
