Tips For Tunnels Beaches Wedding Photography

I’ve been fortunate to photograph lots of Tunnels Beaches weddings, I'm always excited to wake up and head north on the Devon link road to get cracking on with some photos! From Spring to Autumn, outside to inside ceremonies, Tunnels Beaches has a lot to offer. My wedding photography is documentary based, ideal for couples who want a gallery full of natural photos from their wedding day.

Tunnels can accommodate the entire day, with the Courtyard providing a great bridal prep location. Being based in Ilfracombe guests have a variety of options to stay nearby. I would recommend an early afternoon ceremony time. Compared to most venues Tunnels allows guests to enjoy the beach and music throughout the day. This also provides great flexibility for when you want to to explore and get those famous beach photos!

Always worth checking the local tide times for your date to see when everything is accessible. Here's a photography guide to getting the most out of your Tunnels Beaches wedding photos.

How many photos do you deliver?

What equipment do you use?

It's a popular question, with a variable answer. I don't limit the number of images I shoot on the day, or subsequently edit thereafter. I deliver every photo I believe reflects your wedding day and to the high standard I set for myself. A typical all day wedding would receive between 600-900 wedding images.

I opt to always carry two identical cameras with me - Sony a9 cameras for the fellow camera geeks out there. That with two different prime lenses provide a variety of different frames throughout the day. For light I utilise natural light until it's not longer available, when I pop the odd small flash up here and there.

About the Wedding Venue

Tunnels Beaches is one of the most popular wedding venues in Devon, and for good reason. Most who book are seeking a relaxed and fun wedding day, which also happens to be the typical weddings I photograph. Not many venues can claim to have their own private beach! Despite its life beginning in the 1820's, Tunnels has a modern feeling to the whole venue. Couples have great flexibility to input their own style into the day.

Couples can invite up to 120 guests for the day, up to 160 for the evening. Most who get married at Tunnels Beaches don't live in the region and travel from all over the UK to get married here. With that there is self catering luxury accommodation available. There are 4 great properties available, all right next to the venue, with Runnymede House being the newest addition.
