Carolyn and Carlos - Devon

August 03, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Carolyn and Carlos were married on World Ocean Day, a year to the day when the couple started their adventures becoming the first people in the world to paddle 12 marathons in 12 countries in Europe on a Stand Up Paddle board made of PLASTIC BOTTLES to raise awareness of plastic pollution in the ocean.

The adventure activists co-foundeded The Whale Company, an environmental education and conservation charity that focuses on plastic pollution.

If you know me, you’ll know this is something I feel very strongly about and I was in awe of their work and story so far, inspiring action and innovation through stand up paddleboarding, upcycling workshops, expeditions and campaigns.

It was obviously of the upmost importance their wedding day was eco friendly and green.

Carolyn and Carlos chose to celebrate their day close to Carolyn’s Mum’s home in Chillaton, Devon. With a full house, preparations were complete with Carolyn’s Mum’s homemade shepherds pie to keep everyone going. A short drive away, the ceremony at Marystowe church was simply beautiful with music played by friends, and maid of honour Rhiannon’s goose pimple singing of Ave-Maria.

Down winding country lanes the couple arrived from the church in Carolyn’s Uncle’s Jaguar to their reception venue, Wonwood Barton, a unique 19th century farmstead, enchanting and rustic, surrounded by glorious countryside. Here everything was locally sourced, the wild flowers, the wine, the hog roast and Carlos had hand made wood burnt name places which sat with recycled paper packaged seeds as favours on the long wooden Banquet Tables in the marque.

Into the evening everyone tucked into a seriously delicious veggie buffet made by friends and the pair announced they were expecting their first child to wonderful smiling faces and loud cheers. Carolyn surprised her new husband with video messages from his family and friends from Brazil who couldn’t be there on the day and Carlos led Carolyn in their first dance with his Brazilian moves.

Carolyn and Carlos- Congratulations, it was a pleasure to photograph your glorious green day. I hope others take inspiration from your wedding. Keep it simple, reusable and plastic free. xx
