I met Mikey a few years ago at an exhibition opening hosted by Drift Surfing Magazine who I was doing some work for at the time. Mikey is a very talented surfboard shaper and founded, owns and runs Seed Surf Company in Wadebridge. He met Charlie, whose parents own Trethiggey Holiday Park, when he moved to Newquay and as I understand it have been inseparable ever since.
Charlie’s parent’s had very kindly agreed to host the reception in a Tipi at their Holiday Park and they were blessed with a beautiful June summers day on which to tie the knot. It was an idyllic setting with view out towards the Quintrell Downs.
I’ve had a few issues in the past with Vicars not allowing me to photograph the ceremony but Charlie and Mikey’s Vicar was quite the opposite; actively encouraging me to shoot anything and everything the only condition being that ‘I make him look good’! If only more vicars would follow his lead and listen to what their clients want. The ceremony is after all the most important part of the Wedding Day and not being able to document it leaves a huge hole in the collection and a massive part missing from their story.
Here are some of my favourite pictures from their Big Day
