When I first met this pair, I knew that this wedding was going to be awesome. Leah and Lorna are such a fun couple. We first met on a cornish beach for their engagement session. Before I knew it, they ran into the ocean fully dressed.
We all know that Life is too short. I can thank Leah and Lorna for being a reminder to me that we should live life and show so much love!
The wedding day was wonderful as I expected.
Featuring festive pjs in June (Sorry Sam, I had to mention it) Hilarious bridesmaids that would randomly brake into dance all day, The proudest Grandad ever (Check out the moment that he saw Leah in her dress below) A photobombing aunty, lots of tears (the good kind) and laughter. So much laughter!
A special mention to Ben and the kitchen and bar staff at Waterside. They looked after the guests and myself so well. Ben specifically went out of his way to make sure I was fed (and the food was so goooooood!) Such a great venue with a friendly team that I’d love to work alongside again.
One great tip that I’d like to share from this day. Leah and Lorna chose to have the speeches before their food. This way, all the nerves are gone before you eat and you can really enjoy your meal.
Thank you so much Leah, Lorna and your family and friends for making me feel, not like “he's just the photographer” but like a friend, family member and wedding guest (that takes kick ass photos)

In Leah's words(Including some super valuable advice)
Our story ...
We met at work, we both worked in the same place and we were friends for near enough 2 years before we decided to give things a go!
Lorna proposed to me on Pentewan Beach in May, it was a complete surprise I knew nothing about it! Pentewan is our favourite place to go so it makes it even more special that she proposed to me there.
Favourite moments from the day ...
Our favourite moments from the wedding were when we went off with Jamie and had our photos done, it was a chance that we got to spend a little bit of time together after the wedding! We also loved our first dance, again because it just felt so special to us and then seeing everyone boogieing in the evening and seeing some of the moves that people were pulling!!
Advice to other couples ...
make sure that you make time for yourselves, we set aside about half hour where we just went off away from everyone else after the ceremony and we could just breath and spend a little bit of time together as the new Mrs and Mrs!! Also we would say that you need to plan the wedding for yourselves and ignore what everyone else wants, it is your day and you want to look back at the photos and memories and think that you loved that part of the day because it was what you guys wanted!!!!
Please feel free to kick up your feet, crack open a bottle of beer (or if you are like me, pop the kettle on) and enjoy some of my favourite moments from Leah and Lornas wedding day …

Having Jamie as Your Wedding Photographer ...
Why did you decide to hire me as your wedding photographer?
You made us feel so at ease at our engagement shoot and that's exactly what we wanted for the big day!!
how would you describe your experience of working with me?
Amazing!! Relaxed, chilled and just all round fun and a laugh!! We loved having you as our photographer, you made everyone feel so relaxed and the feedback from our guests has just been amazing. You weren't in their faces, you made them laugh and enjoy having their photos taken.
What were your hesitations when it came to photography? What did you feel unsure about, what were you anxious of?
We're so not used to having photographs taken and can't say we like it either. But because you made it so fun, it didn't feel like we were in front of a camera and made it so much easier for us. We felt unsure about managing to get all the family to take the photos we wanted but again you made them feel at ease so they felt so much better about it!
What was awesome?
Not gunna lie, everything was awesome! But especially when we had just our photos taken. You got natural shots of us just being us. Letting us take time and not staging our photographs!
Was there anything that was not so awesome or could be improved?
Definitely not, we wouldn't change it for the world!!
Would you recommend me to others and what would you say to someone who is thinking of working with me?
100% we would recommend you!! We'd tell them that you're such a fun guy who loves a laugh and just to not feel nervous or anxious - the shots will be amazing and the day will be amazing.
Thank you soooooooooooo much Leah xxx
