Cornwall weddings do not come much more action packed than this one! Jenni and Pier’s wedding at The Alverton Hotel was a real beauty and why I love being a Cornwall wedding photographer. The whole day just flowed naturally, perfect for my style of documentary photography!
Everywhere I turned there was something to photograph. All the guests were so happy to be a part of this special day. The Alverton has some great outside space for photos - especially under an amazing tree as you can see in the gallery above. The canopy gave some really lovely light. The result was a really great black and white photograph of the couple, which and has won first prize in an international wedding photography competition!
The Alverton hotel was formerly a convent that was the home of 'Community of the Epiphany' from 1876. In 1984 the building became to large to house the nuns and was converted into a grand, country house hotel. Nowadays, as well as The Great Hall, library and terrace, the venue has around 12 acres of gardens and outdoor areas making it perfect for sunny summer day shots. Amazingly, this stunning former home of flora enthusiast William Tweedy can accommodate a 180 person wedding
I was really happy to be available when they first got in touch because we got on so well from the start. I always want to make sure that I am right for a bride and groom they book me for their wedding. It is really important that we click and that we are on the same page.
The wedding ceremony was held in The Alverton’s Great Hall. The space is really dramatic and allowed me to be creative with the photographs. It also was a great place for a party at the end of day which Jenni and Piers certainly knew how to throw!
Congratulations Jenni and Piers I loved shooting your day! xx
We can't praise Andrew enough for the extra layer of magic he sprinkled onto our wedding. We felt 100% confident in his ability to record our special day. He has an innate talent to seek out special moments capturing people in their most natural form without intruding or changing the dynamics. Our photographs are more beautiful than we could have hoped, the variety, the composition, the use of the space and the true happiness and emotion; such natural photographs that take us right back to the action in a moment. We're absolutely thrilled from start to finish and couldn't recommend him more highly.

Andrew captured our special day beautifully! From the wedding photography planning, big day build up to capturing those extra special moments,￼￼￼ we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We particularly wanted the photographs to be very natural, full of moments that as the bride and groom we didn’t get to see on the day and photographers of lots of little details. Plus Andrew also recommended some tranquil spots across Falmouth, Cornwall that we didn’t even know existed! All of which added to a collection of memorable moments that will treasure forever. We highly recommend Andrew George to capture your big day!￼￼
Louise and Graham
Our day was truly magical and your talent has helped us to keep those memories forever. From moments that we planned to plenty that we didn't you have managed to capture pure emotion, love and happiness. We cannot begin to thank you enough for being committed, flexible and invisible! Truly an amazing photographer!
Jo and Jake
Thank you so much for the excellent photographs you took of our wedding in July. We were so pleased to find a photographer who took the time to get to know what we are like and the type of experience we were hoping to have.
You really captured our day well, and it brings back so many good memories when we look at them! Couldn't have asked for anything better.
Ellen and Josh
Thank you Andrew! Our photos are amazing and we couldn't be happier with the service. You looked after us every step of the way and the feel of the day was captured perfectly. Just the right amount of pretty pictures vs riotous chaos! The presentation of the memory stick in the beautiful box was the icing on the cake. Thank you so much. Ax & Telf
Ax and Tom
Thank you for capturing our day just perfectly, you have an awesome way of making everyone feel relaxed and we knew we could just let you crack on and do your thing. We are both so thrilled with our photos, thank you so much.

Andrew shot our wedding a few days ago now. All our guests commented on his professionalism and politeness! He was amazing throughout the whole day and I would recommend him to anyone!!
Laura and Haydon
There are many things that make Andrew a special photographer. His open, relaxed personality meant we trusted him completely. His very obvious love of and pride in his art can be seen in his absolute professionalism, and the grace and beauty of his photos. And, most importantly for us, his eye for detail, and for finding those moments of natural emotion, whether it be a smile, or a glance, or a laugh, or a tear in someone’s eye, means that we have a treasure trove of photos that we will return to for the rest of our lives. Thank-you Andrew, so very much.
"A massive thank you to Andrew for all our stunning wedding photos! Andrew captured the moment beautifully which means we are able to enjoy seeing how much fun our guests were having when we weren't there. Andrew was efficient and organised. Andrew always got back to us and was a pleasure to work with. Andrew also totally put you at ease which was great for my photo-shy husband. Everyone has commented at how lovely the photos are! I highly recommend Andrew for any occasion you want to remember with a wee happy tear in your eye."
Andrew really is an exceptional photographer, every step of the way he was helpful, extremely polite and knowledgeable. Anyone who’s lucky enough to book his time for their occasion is in for a treat!
We spent a lot of time trying to find a photographer like Andrew; someone who had a great eye for the small moments between people and Andrew did not disappoint.
As soon as Andrew arrived at his destination, he was on it. Snapping away, blending into the background, trying to capture the surroundings and atmosphere. He also gave us great direction and made us really comfortable even in front of a camera!
We are so happy with our wedding pictures – and so pleased that we booked Andrew as our photographer! On the day itself, Andrew was a calm presence throughout. Ben and I never felt as if we were being photographed yet every moment was captured.
We would both thoroughly recommend Andrew. Professional, relaxed and approachable, Andrew’s style of working is first-class and we both agree that booking Andrew was our best “wedmin” decision.
Lots of our guests commented on how discrete and friendly Andrew was on the day, his ability to capture the small details of the wedding were especially impressive.
His approach on the big day, everything was hugely professional and left us completely at ease. We cannot recommend Andrew and his work highly enough!
Huge thanks once more! We will cherish the photos for ever. X
I cannot thank Andrew enough! Andrew was a great presence on the day: totally professional but a great person to have around on the morning of your wedding! He put everyone at ease and was very sensitive about the stresses, joys and emotions of the day, which meant that he was able to create the most incredible record of our day. Andrew has cleverly managed to capture the personalities of our family and friends; he has a wonderful eye for spotting those special relationships and moments and the photographs are beautifully taken. Thank you so much.
We were so pleased that we chose Andrew to photograph our wedding day. He made us feel completely at ease and really took the time to understand what we wanted and what we imagined his role to be. Andrew is sensitive and intuitive; this is reflected in the photographs that he takes. We were extremely impressed by his skill to capture personality and distinctive moments.
The photos are perfect. We strongly recommend Andrew!
A massive thank you for our wedding photo's Andrew! You made both Ed and I feel so comfortable on the day.
Thank you also for being so kind to even help with other things at the wedding that were not your responsibility at all.
You were so easy to work with throughout the whole process. We absolutely love the photo's, they help us remember the special day that went by all too quickly. Thank you again!
A perfect wedding photographer, choosing Andrew was the best decision we could’ve made.
Andrew is not only talented photographer but his way with people makes them extremely comfortable enabling him to get great photos.
We couldn’t recommend Andrew highly enough.
Andrew thank you so much for your amazing work, we couldn’t have asked for anything better!
Andrew is extremely professional and relaxed and we were blown away when we saw the photographs for the first time.
We will be recommending you to everyone we know. Thanks so much!
I have nothing but praise, you made us feel instantly relaxed.
So relaxed that we almost forgot you were there, hence the incredible outcome in our photos.
We will most definitely be recommending you to our friends and family. Thank you again Andrew.
A massive thank you to Andrew. You worked extremely hard to blend in with our guests, so much so that we forgot you were there!
Always snapping away to get some great natural shots, just what we wanted! We cannot praise you enough. Good work!
Andrew was invisible and yet somehow captured our favourite moments from the day. I can’t overstate both his subtleness and sensitivity, and his ability to photograph people at their very best.
There was enough to think about on the big day without having to worry about pushy photographers. Andrew is the perfect photographer for camera shy people like us. Thank-you Andrew!
We cannot thank you enough for the most perfect photographs of our wedding!
It was a pleasure to have you share the day with us and you were both so friendly, helpful and professional which really made us feel at ease and as if we had known you forever! Thank you so much!
We couldn’t have asked for Andrew to do a better job, he delivered in spades! He photographed in such a relaxed and informal manner though that even now, we don’t know quite how he managed to get some of those shots!
Andrew has a very professional but relaxed approach and his love of photography comes shining through in the pictures that he takes. Asking Andrew to be our photographer was definitely one of the best decisions that we made!
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all our fantastic photos. Your relaxed approach put everyone at ease, capturing each and every moment beautifully.
We have such fabulous photos that we will cherish forever. We couldn't have asked for better.
Andrew captured our day beautifully. He fitted into all the proceedings with friendliness, sensitivity and professionalism.
I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for wedding photos that reflect the natural spirit and joy of such a precious thing as a wedding day. Our heartfelt thanks to Andrew, the memories bound up in his photographs will always be a treasure to us.
"We are so pleased with the photographs Andrew took for our wedding. The photos are so beautiful.
Andrew was very professional and friendly on the day. I didn't even notice him taking most of the photos which produced some lovely natural-looking images.
Couldn't be happier!"
I spend a lot of time talking to couples before the big day, to learn more about your individual personalities, interests, and style. It all contributes to creating elegant shots and effortless storytelling on your wedding day.
After all, that’s what it’s all about: capturing your character and spirit throughout your wedding day for you to share and cherish for a lifetime.
I want you to be able to get to know me a little more, too, and welcome you to get in touch with any questions as they arise or simply to bounce ideas around! I’m always on hand to chat through plans and look forward to hearing what you’ve got in mind for your big day.
If I’ve sparked your attention, or you have any questions, let’s chat! I’d love to hear about your wedding day plans and discuss what you’d like for your photography.
