Once in a while you come across a place where you feel like your soul is at home. You might be thousands of miles from where you ever thought you’d end up, but you just feel at peace. For me that feeling has always been strongest in Cornwall. The wild ocean and the rugged, majestic landscape soothes me in a way that no other place on earth does. Over the years I’ve returned many times, often in winter, the wilder the better!
It’s been a day dream of ours to one day live in Cornwall. To be fair, it’s always been a more of a retirement plan due to the distance and the poor job opportunities for my husband. But sometimes, when you dream hard enough, and when you’re brave enough to ask out loud, magical things can happen.
Due to a combination of circumstances we figured out how we might be able to do this, right now, rather than in the distant future. It’s crazy how fast the momentum picks up speed after a decision is made. Our home is on the market and we’re getting ready to go. I’m sure it will take a little while to get everything in order, and the restlessness is building… I just want to be there already.
Despite the anxious wait, my heart sings with joy every time I think about it. Yes, we are coming, my beloved Cornwall! While it might take a little while for us to get there, I want to start reaching out to those of you out in the South West. If you, or your friends are getting married in Cornwall, do reach out. If you are a local vendor who wants to get together to make things happen do get in touch. If you want to hang out and have coffee or plan shoots or work with me in other ways in Cornwall let me know. I cannot wait to get down there and start my life!
P.s. Those of you not in Cornwall, don’t worry. We are planning to have a base close to London as well, so I will continue with my London (and destination) shoots and weddings, too.
