Stunning Cornish sunsets and a gorgeous couple tying the knot after a long-distance relationship between northern England and the Philippines! This is the kind of love story we love to share on English Wedding. Riza is stunning; Kevin her handsome groom and the coast of Cornwall the perfect setting for their micro wedding. Congratulations to a fabulous couple, and thank you lovely Hannah Timm Photography for sharing such beautiful images with us!

How did you choose your photographer?

We spent a long time researching wedding photographers in Cornwall area and was hit hard by Hannah Timm’s work, she automatically went to the top of our list and we are so happy that she could shoot our wedding. Her communication was consistent, effective, and efficient. And for us it’s very important.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

I cannot begin to express how wonderful our experience was with Hannah Timm. Not only were her photos superb, but she was a joy to work with. We felt cared about, prioritised. She made the whole process enjoyable, natural, and fun especially for camera shy people like us. She has a true natural talent for photography and was able to capture every special moment that meant the world to us.

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

Our wedding was held at Polurrian on the lizard in Cornwall. Cornwall was my husband’s home county. At first It was a really difficult task of locating a venue without the opportunity to see it first hand as we both were too far from Cornwall and given the covid situation. Me still being in the Philippines and my partner living in the north part of England. After looking at dozens of venues online we came across this beautiful venue Polurrian on the lizard. We both fell in love with the look and feel of the venue over pictures alone. Despite not seeing and visiting the venue first hand we trusted our guts and booked it. And when we got to visit it after few months it just didn’t disappoint in fact it’s even beyond our expectations. The setting was truly amazing and such a beautiful a magical setting.

As cake lovers here at English Wedding we’d LOVE to know who made your cake, and how delicious it was?

Our cake was made by Peboryon (formerly Claire’s sweet temptations) and it was absolutely amazing! Not only was the design everything we wanted but the cake tasted amazing and we received nothing but compliments! Claire was a pleasure to deal with the entire time, took the stress out of wedding planning. Especially when we had to postpone our wedding few days before the original date and moved it a month after due to unfortunate covid situation she was really accommodating and understanding.

How did the pandemic affect your wedding plans? Do you have any advice to share with couples planning their weddings right now?

Planning the wedding while being in a long distance relationship plus the pandemic was really difficult. We even had to postpone our wedding and some of our guests were not able to make it because of the rescheduling. My advise for couples planning their wedding right now although we’re not entirely out of the woods when it comes to safely gathering but still don’t let things like a global pandemic or social distance get in your way of getting married. Because love always wins. Right now it is best to find creative ways to make your wedding plans happen May it be a small one or a big one. You can always find ways to make your celebration both safe and sentimental.
