I have known Chris for a few years as we met in Lanzarote on a beach lifeguard course. So when he asked me to take the wedding photographs for him and his future bride Becky I was delighted.
A few weeks before the wedding we arranged to meet at Crackington Haven so see the venue for the ceremony. Trevigue Farm is situated in a beautiful spot hidden away on the rugged North Cornish coast and was a perfect setting for everyone to gather and witness the marriage of Becky and Chris.
On the big day I met the best man and brother Thomas and we proceeded with putting on the buttonholes as Chris greeted the guests. Soon after Becky arrived with her dad and the ceremony began as the music played in a lovely candle lit room. There were tears shed and there was a lovely atmosphere as the bride and groom exchanged rings.
Drinks and nibbles in the court yard was followed by some photographs of the wedding party along with everybody by the high cliffs overlooking the sea. A special mention goes out to the Canadian crew. After the portraits of the bride and groom everybody made their way to Chris parents farm at the end of a steam railway in Launceston where the celebrations really began.
Kegs of beer and bubbles followed by pasties and cream teas were the order of the day and there was some debate on whether it was the cream or the jam on top. After the speeches the band Idle Hands played all the way through the night and as the sun went down camp fires were lit and the Hungry Hogs supplied the lively crowd with a great hog roast.

Congratulations to the new married Mr and Mrs Ball. Wishing you all the happiness in your new life together.
