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

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. This was the start of The Day That… Gavan has been capturing the sunrise over St Ives bay ever since. He gets up at dawn every morning without fail!


Gavan and his team are offering Muddy readers the chance to win a ‘Classic’ framed image (frame size: 50cm x 40cm) on the day of their choice. This fantastic prize is worth £120.
