EDEN PROJECT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Cornwall Wedding Photographer
Jules and Tenci
The Eden Project in Cornwall is one of the most incredible places for wedding photography. It offers two huge covered biomes. One of them is world’s largest indoor rainforest and the other is a stunning Mediterranean biome. Normally it’s incredibly busy with visitors from all over the world but you get exclusive use of the Mediterranean Biome for the wedding. You also get exclusive access in the rainforest Biome later in the day. This makes the Eden Project one of the most incredible and unique venues for a wedding, not just in Cornwall but in the world. It’s also perfect for any weather conditions as the biomes are always certain warm temperatures for their plants to grow and completely covered from winds and rain.
I started my day at the couple’s house where Tenci and friends were getting prepared for the Eden Project wedding. I was very happy to see and photograph their beautiful cats. Having met the couple before, I knew that Tenci is a fan of bright and bold colours so I was excited to see what makeup she had chosen. Her bridesmaids were all dressed in a different colour to represent the rainbow flag. As soon as Tenci had her dress on, I drove over to a very wet and rainy Eden Project to meet up with the lovely Jules and her mother. The Eden project was in the process of closing for the general public giving exclusive access to just the wedding guests.
The ceremony took place in the warm and bright Mediterranean Biome which made a vast difference to the cold and wet weather outside. It was beautiful to see the Biome almost empty except for the few wedding guests. Jules waited nervously with her brother as a best man role while Tenci and her bridesmaids made the long and stunning walk down to the isle. The song that Tenci walked down the isle to was, and will always be my most memorable making the wedding guests laugh and dance, including Jules.
When Jules and Tenci first saw each other, it was one of the most beautiful ‘first looks’ I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing. It was one of my favourite ceremonies to capture as I had lots of room to capture various angles and the lighting and scenery were stunning no matter where I pointed my camera. There were lot’s of tears of joy during the wedding which nearly set me off.
After a confetti exit, drinks were served and we found a great spot for group shots, although everywhere at the Eden Project looks great.
After this I took the ladies off around the rest of the Mediterranean Biome for some couple shots. I had previously met Jules and Tenci for an Engagement Shoot so I knew how fun they are to photograph as a couple. The love they have for each other is so obvious in each and every shot and I just love how they display this beautiful emotion.
After the meal were the speeches and the beautiful displays of emotion were there to capture again with more laughter and tears. Once the speeches and meal were done, everyone had exclusive access and use of the Rainforest Biome which is a lot bigger and warmer. I took this opportunity to take a few more couple photos on a rope bridge and in front of a waterfall.
Unfortunately, this wedding took place during Covid which meant they couldn’t have a proper party at the end of the day, but they were able to have a first dance, despite dancing not technically being allowed.
Jules and Tenci have become one of my favourite couples to photograph and they are two of the nicest humans I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. The wedding was made so much more special as it was in the world famous Eden Project. It was one of my most memorable weddings with one of my favourite couples.
I can’t recommend getting married at the Eden Project enough due to how unique and beautiful it is.
Thank you to the lovely Jules and Tenci for allowing me to capture their most special of days and I am grateful that we remain in contact.
