Chris Giles: St Enodoc Church, Daymer Bay And A Yurt

by Mark Bailey

Certain parts of the UK have a special hold on my heart and Cornwall is one such place.

When my age could be counted in single digits Cornwall was a source of family holidays, tricking the Space Invaders machine to accept 2p’s at holiday camps in Camelford, pretending to be a rock climber in Tintagel and discovering jellyfish on Polzeath beach are moments that still hold a certain magic and nostalgia for me.

Yet, despite this I’ve not been back to Cornwall since, at least not until Domi and Phil booked me for their wedding at St Enodoc Church in Trebetherick. From that moment I had been counting down the day to my return…

Their wedding started unusually with the boys surfing at Polzeath beach while Dominique got ready at her parents in Rock.

St Enodoc church is honestly the most beautifully located church I’ve ever shot at. The view of St Enodoc aligns perfectly with the Jurassic Cornish coastline that leads to Daymer Bay.

After the ceremony we headed back to Domi’s parents for a reception in a Yurt where the September sun kept us warm. The speeches took place outside followed by a Conga to the beach.

The evening continued and I stayed until the late hours where all the fun continued until close.
