Beach Photos on Your Wedding Day in Cornwall

Treseren is just minutes from the North Cornwall coastline, with the iconic twin rocks of Holywell Bay just a 10 minute car journey away. So, it comes as no surprise that many of our wedding couples fully embrace this dramatic scenery and plan a visit to the beach into their wedding day itinerary.

Whether you’re dancing on the shoreline with sand between your toes or conquering a rugged clifftop with nothing but the vast ocean beyond, your photographer will capture these once in a lifetime moments for you to treasure, and we strongly recommend making the most of this special time together on your wedding day.

Things to consider


Wear sunscreen! Sunburn will be the last thing you are thinking about on your wedding day, but it is also the last thing you want. Putting on sunscreen in the morning (with plenty of drying time before getting dressed) is always a good idea even if you are just going to be out in the gardens on a sunny day. You definitely won’t want to wear heels on the beach, so bring a change of shoes or be prepared to go bare foot.

Embrace the weather

You may be dreaming of glorious sunshine, but don’t be disheartened if that is not what the day delivers. In fact, some of the best photos come from cloud cover and even stormy skies – so be prepared to embrace what mother nature brings and you will be rewarded with truly atmospheric photos.

Avoid the crowds at the beach – timing is everything.

We will work with you to decide when the best time is to visit the beach on your wedding day. For example, on a Saturday in the middle of August we need to think strategically to avoid the crowds, so heading to the beach after dinner for golden hour photos is a great idea, as families on day trips to the beach will have gone home. However, in the spring months a mid-afternoon beach visit while your wedding guests are enjoying canapes works perfectly. We’ve even had couples head off for a quick surf after breakfast before saying ‘I do’!
