The wedding of Spencer and Marilyn at Penzance Register Office

Awaiting the Bride at PenzanceSpencer and Marilyn met by chance at a mutual friends dinner party and had no idea they had lived only a hundred yards from each other for a number of years before finally dating.

Their day began with her getting ready at her own home with her bridesmaids while the men met at 10:30 am in The Mounts Bay Public House, Alverton Street Penzance, in readiness for the nearby Penzance Register Office ceremony.

The guests gathered both at the pub and the Registry Office and everybody was at the Registry Office in time for the 12:00 ceremony.

The CeremonyIt was an intimate ceremony with 32 guests. Marilyn had two bridesmaids and her dress was ivory.

She arrived in the wedding car and the atmosphere was electric as she walked into the room.

As a wedding photographer I am always looking for that emotion that emerges when the bride enters the room, this wedding was no disappointment there.

This ceremony was a classic example that it does not matter where two people decide to get married. They have made that commitment to each other and when the bride walks up the aisle the emotion is there for everyone to experience. This was very much a couple devoted to each other.

Spencer stood there anxious and nervous. We could have been stood in Westminster Cathedral but it would not have changed how this couple's love exuded from them and shone like a beacon, touching everyone in the room.

Emotions ran high as the ceremony unfolded. The couple emerged as husband and wife and left in the wedding car to travel to The Godolphin Arms Marazion Penzance for the reception.

The BlessingHaving received everyone at the hotel the guests and wedding couple walked down to the beach in front of St Michaels Mount for a blessing conducted by a spiritualist.

Spencer is a fanatical fisherman and fishing rods made a tunnel for the newly married couple to walk through surrounded by the wedding guests, on the beach in front of St Michaels Mount.

The weather held out wonderfully as the ceremony took place and the tide was out giving ample room.

After this the couple and guests returned to the restaurant of the hotel for the wedding breakfast, with the beautiful bay windows providing an excellent backdrop for the meal which commenced at 2:00pm.

Speeches took place after the meal and cake cutting.

Following the meal guests moved into the lower bar and a band played the night away.

At one point in the celebrations the couple decided they wanted to take some photographs on the beach as the sun set. The couples children followed along with some friends.

At St Michael's MountThey asked me what I wanted them to do and I said do whatever you feel like doing. That was like opening floodgates as the couple went into the water splashing around and were followed by friends and family. I captured their emotion as they hugged each other and danced around in the water and celebrated in their own way.

At one point Marilyn walked on her own, by now the sun had set and I took the photograph as she walked back to the beach, on the Mount causeway, with the tide rushing in.

A fabulous couple and a wonderful wedding.
