Precariously perched on a jagged rock, the presenter gazed adoringly at Helen as he pulled her close for a passionate kiss.
It was one of their first as a married couple, and they savoured the moment before turning to gaze out at the sweeping Cornish coastline
Helen still held her wedding bouquet, and Steve gallantly took it from her as they navigated the rugged stretch of coastline prior to their shoot.

One onlooker told the Mirror that the pair looked 'blissfully happy'. The local added: 'Steve took her hand and led her to the top of the cliff. We couldn’t believe where they were heading but the view out to sea was awesome.' 
The athlete recently admitted she was finally looking ahead to their wedding and future together after dedicating the last four years to defending her coxless pair title with partner Heather Stanning.
'I was so focused on the Olympics, one of the first things Heather said to me afterwards is "you're getting married now!" she told This Morning in August. 
'Rather than a long countdown it is going to be a three-week countdown. It is really exciting.'
