Lusty Glaze, Cornwall: live acoustic music at Helen & Andrew’s wedding

Wednesday, 27th May – a midweek trip down to sunny Cornwall for Helen and Andrew’s beautiful beachside wedding. Arrived in the morning to this stunning view:

Steps to the beach!

Now, the bride & groom did warn me about the 133 steps down to the beach, which is mainly why I gave myself a couple of extra hours to set up! After five leg-burning trips up and down the steps, I was all set up and ready to play.

With some time to spare, I snatched an hour on the beach on the glorious sunshine – we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

A tiring day once I’d dragged my stuff back up the steps – but an absolutely incredible day and such a memorable spot for the happy couple’s big day! Thanks so much to Helen and Andrew for inviting me down to this incredible place – and huge congratulations to you both!
