Tunnels Beaches Wedding Photographer

natural and relaxed wedding photo at tunnels beaches


“Alex, just to confirm in writing, we bloody love the photos, bloody LOVE them!! We can’t thank you enough, we had high expectations, but you went above and beyond those in everything you did. Thank you!”


If I could go back and re-live any day of 2014, it would be difficult to pick any other day than this one! One baking hot day in August, Jemma and Sam got married at the incredible Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracoombe and it was a huge honour to be asked to document their day.

It was so relaxed and informal with everyone having so much fun. I know that’s what Sam and Jemma were hoping for and in every sense, the day simply couldn’t have gone any better. It was clear to see that Sam and Jemma are surrounded by some wonderful people and for me, it’s that that really made the day extra special. So much fun, laughter and good times!! It was so brilliant to be a part of it all!

A big cherry on the top of an already special day was having Andy Gaines along with me to shoot this one. If you’re a photographer and have followed Andy’s work, you’ll understand why I was excited. Thanks Andy, you were a total legend!

I always knew that it was going to be a tough job to pick my favourites from the day to blog here, and to be honest I feel like I could have shown so much more, but without further ado here’s my attempt to narrow an action packed day down to a reasonable length. Here goes…
