Molly & Harry had the most charming English Seaside Wedding in Bantham, Cornwall, where they both spent their summer holidays and met one Summer’s day. Whilst they both now live in London, the couple decided to return to this idyllic place for their wedding this Summer.
The Wedding Design
The beautiful Seaside wedding was designed by the super talented Liv Newiss Creative who always creates the most stunning events. Her eye for the perfect detail is exceptional and everywhere you look something elegant and utterly romantic awaits you.
Liv chose the very brilliant Lucy Bowen Design to create really gorgeous, whimsical, wedding stationary, featuring a bucket & Spade, seashells, little boats, delphiniums and Holly Hocks… Oh and a bottle of Champagne, of course!
This charming theme ran through the whole wedding design: Hundreds of delphiniums created the most abundant flower arch, decorating the church. (Emma Hewlett Florist) Whilst all the place names were meticulously hand painted in gold, on mussel shells, for each guest by the very clever Sophia Vaughan at SV Calligraphy
The Wedding Reception
During the reception overlooking the Estuary where Molly & Harry first met, the Guests ate fresh Oysters from The Oyster Shack and sipped Champagne. A wondering Mariachi band sung brilliant songs and the guests sung and danced along with them…Such joy!
Later that night, after a superb meal created by talented Chef Simon Desmond, Molly and Harry took to the dance floor for their first dance. Their Guests cheered as glitter cannons were fired and the happy couple danced under dreamy fluttering glitter.
The Lights Inc are possibly one of the coolest wedding bands I have seen and they played the most brilliant set, whilst the Phenomenal front man Spencer Kennedy got the guests partying all night long.
What with incredible fireworks and a sparkler tunnel exit thrown in for good measure, this really was uch a wonderful, magical, fun filled wedding! So much luck and love to you Molly & Harry xx
Katherine & Andy got married at her parents beautiful stone cottage, in Suffolk in the tiny little church over the road from the house. I knew I was in for a treat when I was told Katherine’s father had written all the music for the ceremony and a full orchestra and choir were being squeezed into the church to perform it. You’ve never heard such beautiful music and to know it had been written and performed just for you, must have been so very special for the couple.
After the ceremony, everybody wandered over the road to the grounds of the cottage, where guests enjoyed cups of tea and sandwiches and sipped champagne as the sun shone.
Then the guests headed to a beautiful marquee in the grounds, which had been filled with gorgeous hydrangeas, roses, peonies and delphiniums, all in my favourite shades of Pink, blue & lilac. It looked breathtaking and their cake was decorated with two of my favourite things: Peonies and bows! I loved spending the day with Katherine & Andy and their wedding day was an absolute treat…
Katherine took the time to write me the most touching letter and I have to say its one of the kindest and loveliest things I’ve ever read. It bought a tear to me eye. Thank you Katherine & Andy for choosing me and making me feel like I have the best job in the world xxx
“L.U.C.Y T.A.N.N.E.R I am quite speechless. The photos you took are just absolutely sensational. I could NEVER have hoped to have SO many great shots from the day. I feel like I am eternally indebted to you!!!
You have really brought out the absolute best in everyone who had their photo taken by you…I am truly honoured that you were my photographer!!!! I can’t say that enough.
You really captured the day and so much more…I have never had such photos taken of me EVER!!!!! Aside from your incredible talent I think you are so incredible in the energy you give off which just put me so at ease and I think I fed off you all day!! They look so amazingly natural, but not natural because natural photos can never be that good…It is all your talent hard at work…You just got SO many great shots!!
I just don’t know how to convey the joy and happiness I feel from these photos. To use my dad’s words he said “she certainly did you proud” I don’t think you could have captured any more or any better. You are a masterful talent!
Well Lucy Tanner, it was so amazing to meet you and have been one of your subjects… It was a truly incredible day and I was thrilled with it all. And to get these photos, the whole thing is ending on such a high! People honestly have not stopped talking about you since the wedding! You are an incredible woman. It has been so inspiring meeting someone like you, you have made such a huge impression on me….Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!
I will be eternally grateful!!!
Lots of love,
Diane & Teddie are the loveliest couple who live in London. Diane is originally from America and Teddie is from Finland so they decided to get married in Rome. When they asked me to join them there to photograph their weekend of celebrations, I was so excited. Rome is one of my favourite cities and to be able to photograph such a beautiful event there is always a huge privilege.
The lucky couple chose the magnificent Villa Aurelia for their wedding day, which is such a special location. If it wasn’t magical enough, Diane & Teddie chose the wonderful Floriala Decor to create the most breathtakingly beautiful floristry. The ceremony was performed underneath the most splendid floral arch of Peonies, Roses and Delphiniums and pink Rose petals lined the aisle. Then later on, guests dined in the open air courtyard , with tables full of pink Sweet Peas, Hydrangeas, Roses & bowls of cherries, complete with hundreds of candles and lemon trees.
Diane wore the most incredible Marchesa dress and the whole thing was just magical.
Their amazing wedding was planned by the super talented Wed in Italy Event Planners, who specialise in destination weddings in Italy and did such a wonderful job. It really was such a beautiful wedding and when I look at the photos, I just wish I could go back…

Now this wedding was special. Definitely one of my favourites weddings of last year, possibly of all time.
Liv Newiss, founder of Indigo Wedding Events has the most wonderful taste and everything she creates is just SO beautiful. All the suppliers she uses are the best in the business and her weddings are always heaven. The wedding was very close to Liv’s heart, as the bride and groom are her best friends and she somehow managed the entire day effortlessly, whilst also moonlighting as The Maid of Honour!
The glorious Scarlett & Violet created floral heaven in their marquee at Welford Park in Berkshire. Charlie & Iain are lucky enough to live in a cottage on the grounds so they were allowed to use the beautiful location for their wedding day and their service was held at the church, also within the grounds.
Charlie & Iain are possible the most in love couple I have met. They have a beautiful son Hugo together and are the happiest little family I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. The whole day was full of love and joy and beauty and was truly inspirational to be part of…

This summer, Maya & Christian invited me to her home town of Salzburg, Austria, to photograph their amazing three day wedding celebrations. It was all masterfully planned by the super talented Prime Moments Events, who were a total joy to work alongside.
I felt so very lucky to be there… As the founder of the super cool online fashion retailer Avenue 32, Maya has absolutely impeccable taste. For the ceremony, Maya wore the most heavenly, romantic, full lace Elie Saab dress, with spiked Christian Louboutin heels. Her maids of honour wore white & blue floral Vilshenko dresses, which were definitely the prettiest dresses I have ever seen. Sharma, one the loveliest and most talented makeup artists in the business, travelled with us to Salzburg to work her magic, making everyone look breathtakingly beautiful.
St Peters Cathedral, Salzburg, was decorated simply with cream roses and Hydrangeas, letting the glorious interiors work their magic. After a beautiful ceremony, their guests wandered the few steps to The Salzburg Rotary Club, where they sipped champagne, ate delicious bowl food and danced in the open air courtyard to the wonderful travelling band.
If all that wasn’t enough, later on that evening, their Guests reconvened at The Sound of Music’s Glorious Leopoldskron Palace. Guests looked out over the lake on the most beautiful of summers’s evenings. Maya wore a stunning Maticevski dress and of course, looked divine. Guests dined across three of the most opulent rooms in The Palace while the wandering band got many of the guests dancing on the tables. After their wonderful meal, guests then headed downstairs and danced the night away. We had the honour of working alongside the brilliant Film maker, Jeff Wood Visuals who made the most stylish wedding film for Maya & Christian.
The whole weekend was just incredible. It was so glamorous and beautiful but so fun and and relaxed… It was everything I think the perfect wedding should be.
Jacquetta Wheeler’s wedding was the most incredible day ever. And she was the most relaxed, laid back, not to mention extremely beautiful bride. Her and James made such a gorgeous and glamorous couple and the whole day was perfect. I’m not sure Ive enjoyed a wedding more. Everywhere I looked there was something breathtakingly lovely- It was such a treat to be part of. The divine Scarlet & Violet arranged the flowers and as I walked into the wedding breakfast I actually got a lump in my throat, it was just jaw-droppingly pretty. Oh and British Vogue published my photographs! What more could a girl ask for?!
