Cornwall beach is definitely a dream location for an elopement. Here’s Kirsty and Olivia getting hitched, photographed by Tracey Warbey.
We always imagined we would elope. When we saw the Scarlet Hotel, we knew straight away we wanted to get married there. It was the perfect setting for the perfect day. We got married late June and throughout that week it rained everyday except our wedding day, it was like it was meant to be!
TELL US ABOUT THE CEREMONY AND RECEPTION LOCATIONS. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE VENUE AND WHAT DID YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?
Our first holiday together was in Cornwall, so it has a special place in our hearts. The Scarlet Hotel is on the cliffside by the beach so it was just perfect!
FOOD! WHAT, WHO AND HOW WAS IT??
We shared some wedding day canapés and fizz that were provided by the hotel after the ceremony
We both wanted to wear white dresses with a slight difference in style to each other
Tracey Warbey our photographer, who was local to Cornwall was fantastic from start to finish! We are quite a camera shy couple and she made the day comfortable and relaxed. We are thrilled with how she managed to perfectly capture the most important day of our lives
WHAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT AND MOST FUN PART FOR YOU?
The most fun part was taking pictures on the beach after the ceremony, we took our shoes off and went in the sea. The hotel is situated on the cliffside, so as we were walking down, it looked like we had the beach to ourselves. As soon as we could see the whole beach, we realised there were hundreds of people there, staring at us in our crisp white dresses going for our photo shoot. Our wedding dresses were ruined by the end of it, but it didn’t matter because we had the best time and made unforgettable memories.
WOULD YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
