Clovelly Village in Cornwall is what I would call a hidden gem. Located on the north side of the county, Devon. The Village itself winds down the 400ft cliff, to the harbour below. The cobbled streets, with no vehicle access lined with cottages and beautiful plants. This was no doubt a brilliant location for a styled shoot.
Florin and Liuba, who are actually married had never posed for a group of photographers before. So this styled shoot for them was new, as it was for me. This was my first time at Clovelly Village, and I was so surprised I had never seen it. I knew as soon as I arrived I would return to the village, and I have twice since.
A hidden gem on the Devon coastline…
This Clovelly Village Wedding Photoshoot started at the top of the village, near the entrance. We worked our way down through the village’s narrow main street, stopping outside the cottages, and their gardens in bloom. Florin and Liuba were so good on camera. The day before I had purchased an 85mm prime lens, and that’s what my whole set was shot on, an excellent lens for weddings. 395 photos I took in total, and still, now I cherish them and will never delete them.
At the bottom of the Village, is the harbour. This is where the backdrop completely changes, making you feel like you’re on a movie set. As we arrive at the harbour, we noticed the sun had disappeared, and the temperature had dropped. That was because we were lucky enough to have sea mist rolling in. This adds a great atmosphere to photos, and diffuses the sun, giving us a nice even light. The day was getting better all the time.
