streaker at a beach wedding

Recently, I shot the awesome beach wedding of Michelle and Rich at Lusty Glaze in Cornwall, but there was one scene that I left out of the original blog. This mini story deserved a place all of it’s own – it’s not every day you see a streaker at a beach wedding.

It was a beautiful June day, gorgeous weather, perfect for a beach wedding. To take full advantage, Michelle and Rich took an evening stroll out along the surf and chilled together. I like to photograph these moments on a long lens so that the couple can have some time to themselves. It’s actually a great thing to plan into the wedding day as the light is at its best for photography too.

After a little while we heard the best man calling something out to us as he ran down the beach. When we looked to see what all the commotion was about, the best man was chasing one of the wedding guests down the beach stripping his suit off on the way! By the time he got to the sea, he was naked, and turned around to face the wedding reception. Fortunately, due to fantastic waves that day, I can show you the epic image from that moment.

The best man, doing his duty, collected the clothes and took them all the way back up the beach to the bar while the streaker was still swimming. When the guys went down to greet the streaker after his swim, they did help out though – by taking a sand castle bucket to protect his modesty. How kind!

That was just one little story of many from this awesome destination wedding. You can see the full day HERE.
