Polhawn Fort Wedding Photography Cornwall – Katherine & Jim

It was fantastic to capture Katherine & Jim’s Cornish wedding. It was a very wet, cold, and windy day for keen surfers Katherine & Jim.  The couple both love the coast and spend a lot of time in the water.  This was one of the reasons why they wanted a venue close to the water.  The wedding was held at Polhawn Fort on Torpoint in Cornwall.  Polhawn Fort is an unusual but very popular location to hold a wedding.  It was built, along with others, to ward off Napoleon from landing along Whitsand Bay.

The fort was lovely and warm inside and it certainly helped ward off the cold weather.  Both Katherine & Jim got ready at the Fort which made it easy for some getting ready wedding shots.  The ceremony was really lovely and was held in front of their family & friends. After the ceremony we had a small window of opportunity to gather the whole wedding party outside for a group-shot, very brave!   We also has time to get some lovely couple shots down on the shore.  After the speeches and the wedding breakfast the couple chilled out with family & friends before cutting the cake and having the first dance.  As always the party was just hotting up as it was time to leave.  Had a great time capturing your wedding and it was great to meet you all. I hope you had a great honeymoon in Fuerteventura and managed to get plenty of waves.

Hi- We are right in the middle of Covid 19 in 2020 and I have been taking time to look through the archive. It was lovely to rediscover Kathrine & Jim’s Polhawn Fort wedding from back in 2015 I think. I remember the day well, right at the end of January in 2015 . It was a wet and very windy day but that was just typical of that time of the year. Fond memories! It’s now the 14th of May 2020 the social distancing has just started to ease. We are allowed out for more exercise, thankfully. Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at the blog. Anthony x
