TREVENNA BARNS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Cornwall Wedding Photographer
Grace and Luke
Trevenna is a stylish and secluded cluster of Barns in Cornwall specialising in exclusive use Wedding ceremonies and celebrations and one of the most beautiful venues for wedding photography in Cornwall. Grace and Luke’s wedding was only a couple of weeks before Christmas 2020 and due to Covid, restrictions were in place. Despite the time of year, the weather was gorgeous although not warm enough for an outside ceremony which can be possible at the venue, but perfect for outside wedding photography. There were little elements of Christmas scattered throughout Trevenna such as a beautiful Christmas Tree.
I arrived at Trevenna Barns early to capture Grace and her small wedding party, get ready. Trevenna barns has plenty of accommodation which meant that Luke was also able to get ready at the venue in the morning so I was able to capture both Grace and Luke as they prepared for their special day. I love to photograph the ceremony room before any guests arrive to capture all the small details. One of my favourite photographs of the morning was Graces father seeing her in her dress for the first time. It’s a very special moment to be able to capture, always full of emotion.
The Ceremony took place inside despite the weather, it was too cold to be outside. Despite the restricted numbers, the ceremony room looked full. The lighting was perfect due to the large windows which meant lots of winter sun could pour through.
After the ceremony, we made our way outside for some confetti photographs which are always some more of my favourite shots to capture and Lukes reaction did not disappoint! We made use of the light while we still had it due to early winter sunsets and I took Grace and Luke around Trevenna grounds for some couple photographs followed by a few small group shots. Speeches took place before the meal and were both emotional and hilarious. Speeches are another great chance to capture some great expressions.
Unfortunately no evening entertainment was allowed although Grace and Luke were able to do an impromptu first dance before a sparkler exit which was some of my favourite sparkler shots I’ve photographed. I also found it much easier to sync sparklers being lit with only a handful of guests.
Despite lots of couples postponing their wedding in 2020 as they didn’t want restrictions, Grace and Luke explained to me that Covid make them realise what was most important to them and that was just to be together, get married and share it with their nearest loved ones. All the decorations and favours were made by friends and family including the fireman themed cake toppers made by the very talented Groom, who is a fireman.
I really enjoyed photographing this smaller more intimate wedding. It meant I had more time to focus on the interactions of the couple and the guests and I felt much more involved with the day. Luke and Grace are incredibly lovely people and both them and their family made me feel incredibly welcome.
