Watergate Bay Hotel Wedding Photography | Alice & Chris

I was so happy Alice and Chris asked me to be their Watergate Bay Hotel wedding photographer! It was the most gorgeous day at this absolutely beautiful venue in Newquay.

I built up a great relationship with Alice in the run up to the wedding, we had several chats over the phone and it sounded like the most wonderful intimate day, with focus on the kids and family.

There’s something really special about taking all your friends and family down to the beach on your wedding day, I mean who doesn’t love the beach? I do a lot of family shoots, so I’m very used to working with kids and they make the best subjects, in fact some of these images won some awards, if you follow my work you may remember which ones! The Summer of 2018 seems a long time ago now, but looking at these pictures again it feels like yesterday, I bet the girls look so grown up now!


After getting to know Alice, I was really looking forward to the day, and working at this stunning venue again (I’ll link to past weddings at the end of the post) a beautifully modern hotel right on the edge of the bay. With jaw-dropping panoramic views over the sea, its a venue for any photographer to get excited about. It’s always a real treat to work as a Watergate Bay Hotel wedding photographer with such a kind and easy-going couple.

As a creative herself, Alice put a lot of thought into the details of her wedding, and everything looked stunning, with handmade details and personal touches throughout the day.

I was more than delighted to have my good friend Chris from Babalu films along as a second photographer for Alice and Chris’s wedding, he was absolutely great to work with and everyone enjoyed having him along – thanks Chris!


Watergate Bay Hotel is the perfect location for your wedding in Cornwall, and if you’re thinking of getting married at Watergate Bay and looking for a Watergate Bay Hotel wedding photographer, I would love to work there again so would love to chat with you! Weddings at Watergate Bay mean horizon-facing vows, photos on the beach, cocktails on The Living Space deck, feasting in Zacry’s and dancing into the night at Watchful Mary.  This is a beautiful venue for your wedding day, and a dream for photographers!

Watergate Bay provides a stunning backdrop for photos, and for your guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Thank you, Alice and Chris, for having us along and sharing your Watergate Bay Wedding with Chris and I. We had a brilliant day and I loved reliving it whilst choosing images for this blog post!
