real wedding –  Laidback Cornwall Coastal Wedding

29 October 2018

If you dream of clambering over rugged coastline in your wedding dress on your wedding day, Colin Ross is your guy. James and Rosie wanted to do exactly that – their Penzance wedding was mega chilled, super cute, and dreamily coastal.

James and Rosie bucked tradition by having their portraits all before their ceremony – a timeline Colin absolutely loved. They went and explored the Cornish coastline to get some incredible portraits of them surrounded by the magnitude and beauty of the sea, accompanied by only two others: Colin and Mother Nature. Some of these shots are genuinely stops-your-chest breathtaking; the photos of them hoiking up dress hems and trouser lengths to get high on the hillside, and the photos of them as tiny, beautiful figurines on an awe-inspiring coastline are totally dreamy.

James wore a Ted Baker suit and Rosie a ruffled Whistles dress with trainers to embark upon their adventure, as well as an All Saints leather jacket which she whipped off upon arriving at the top of the aisle on the back of her motorbike (casj.)

Fittingly, their day was relaxed and minimal, with a lot of gorgeous open space. “We wanted to break the mould and have lots of bright, contrasting colours whilst trying to keep decorations simple and rustic.” Rosie and James explain. For this, they erected loads of colourful flags to flap in the wind, and had a floral backdrop behind them at the ceremony. Inside the marquee, giant clusters of bright blooms encased the marquee poles. “The beautiful flower centre pieces were created by Rosie’s mother, who spent months pulling artificial flowers out of shop bargain bins and collecting bright, unusual flowers as and when she saw them. Set up the day before the wedding involved Rosie’s Mum and James’s Dad balancing on extremely tall ladders attempting to attach flowers to a ball of chicken wire… In the end it looked fab!”

So, in essence, they had the chillest, most laidback day ever with the world’s most incredible wedding portraits. No biggy, just everyone’s wedding dream. NAILED IT.
