Jackson & Tahlia
June 2023 @ Coast Path, Tintagel
When Tahlia first got in touch, it was clear just how special Tintagel was to her and her family. Now living in Australia, Tahlia still felt the pull of her family roots in the spectacular north Cornish Village of Tintagel and felt she needed to do something to mark her commitment to fiance Jackson in sight of the Church where so many of her ancestors worshipped and now reside.
I was happy to take a look at the area and was delighted to find Glebe Cliffs – an area of the coastal path behind the church and in sight of the famous Tintagel Castle. I sent photos to Tahlia and we agreed that this would be the perfect location.
On the day it was fine but windy, and accompanied by a family friend and the lovely Sarah of Chequered Photography. A heart felt handfasting with personal vows and blessings – such a pleasure to write and conduct. The colours of ribbons for the handfasting were especially chosen for their meaning to this gorgeous couple. Afterwards we spent some time looking around the church and paying respects to Tahlia’s relatives.
Their verdict on the ceremony? They summed it up in one word “Awesome!”
