Dan & Michelle’s beach front summer wedding at Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe, with Robin Goodlad Photography
The sunshine is back!! And I’m so happy to say we have a gloriously sunny July beach wedding on the blog for you today. I love this so much – gorgeous couple Michelle and Dan were married at Tunnels Beaches and their beautiful day just sings of summer! The styling touches are perfect – there are wonderful summer wildflowers, as well as ice creams, proper old school striped deckchairs and a showstopper of a wedding cake! My brilliantly talented friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad captured the whole day for the happy couple, who have given him a fantastic review below! Enjoy the blog today… I know I will!
Wedding photographer’s website:
We did lots of research of different styles of photography. I loved the photos on Robin’s website and in his portfolios.
Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!
Absolutely! Robin was so lovely and he made two people who feel uncomfortable in front of the camera relax.
We were thrilled when we saw our wedding photos. He captured the day perfectly.
