Most country churches are more relaxed and photogenic settings for a wedding than those in busy towns. Talland Church is an exceptional location, set as it is in on a hill-side in a tiny hamlet, with one end of the churchyard in a shady, wooded dell and the other end looking out over Talland Bay and the English Channel.

In the Church of England, you need to live within the parish, or get a Special Licence, to be married in a particular church. Talland Church, though situated in a tiny hamlet, serves the whole parish of Talland, which, these days is in a joint ministry, with Lansallos and Polperro. So weddings at Talland Church, whilst not an everyday or even every week event, are not too rare, fortunately.
