Win dawn over St Ives Bay (well a pic, anyway)

30 Sep 2016

Loved by celebs (Spicy Emma Bunton and Sir Elton, none the less) and by us all here at Muddy HQ – how much more romantic can you get than a photo taken at sunrise on the day that changed your life? Meet The Day That, the Carbis Bay based creative company, specialising in extraordinary original photography to celebrate any special day in the most personalised of ways.

Founded by Gavan Goulder and inspired by the birth of a son to one of his close friends, creative Gavan took a beautiful photograph of that day and presented it to the proud parents in a frame inscribed with ‘6th April 2000, Teddy’s First Day.’

Word soon spread and several people asked Gavan to create unique gifts for them too.

Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Muddy Stoke Park competition was popular! Over 2000 entries and a lot of finger crossing, but Christina St Croix obviously worked her toes too, because she has snaffled the luxe spa break for two for the night. You lucky, lucky (*sob*) lucky lady.

So it’s congratulations to Christina – get in touch with me at Sorry to the rest of you but fear not, mes amis – it wouldn’t be Muddy without another brilliant competition skidding around the corner any minute in a sports car.
