When Ollie and Claire got in touch and said they were getting married at a penguin sanctuary I was quite excited, I love animals, specifically dogs, but penguins are right up there too and the thought that you can actually get married in such a place is very very cool.

Claire and her girls got ready at a place called The Cary Arms, the hill down to it is more or less the same gradient as an olympic ski slope, so after I had jumped out of the taxi as it was rolling backwards it was all systems go. We all wandered down to the beach for a water goddess ceremony which was a first for me and was a fantastic start to the day.

After a very beautiful and unique ceremony that involved mixing of sand by various family members and an excellent rendition of Elton Johns " Your Song" we made the walk along Torquay seafront down to Pier Point restaurant for the celebrations to begin.

Honestly this was such a lovely day from beginning to end, here are my favourites!
