What happens when a couple from Manchester with DJ's in the family plan a wedding in Cornwall I hear you ask.
It becomes the most amazing 3 day wedding festival you could possibly imagine!
Duane & Ellie got hitched on the Friday in front of their immediate family at the local registry office in town and spent Friday night with family and friends chilling before an incredible weekend.
The Saturday was the big day, I met Duane in the morning and followed him to Tremorna Farm down near Penzance. It was a glorious weekend filled with sunshine and sea views from the bottom field, which was perfectly set up for a mini festival. With a giant tipi, hay bails, various food trucks, festival style drink cups, food and bar tokens, flags and glamping pods scattered around, I knew that this weekend was going to be the best wedding ever.
And I promise it did not disappoint.
Everyone was dressed up ready for summer festival vibes, full of colour and flare and the venue came alive. The ceremony itself was beautiful. Held by the couples best friends, it was an elongated wedding speech filled with stories, laughter and tears, along with their own very, very beautiful vows...
Handmade in every way, gold sparkly DM's and dinosaurs - what more could you possible want from a wedding?!
Apart from a sea view and sunshine - NOTHING! And yes we were blessed with all of this, despite the yellow weather warning for rain!
I first had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca and Steve over coffee and cake, talking cameras and weddings - it was love at first sight! But who doesn't love cake?!
I was so excited hearing all about their day, their love for Dungeon & Dragons, Dinosaurs and food!
They had a handmade wedding, from bouquets to button holes, to wedding stationary and centre pieces and of course a golden dinosaurs as a keepsake! Which I am please to say I am the proud owner of one and is now my desk buddy!
Their whole day was beautiful, filled with laughter, smiles and tears - including my own. They wrote their own vows, I couldn't help it!
Come with us, and you'll see, this our town of Halloween...
Ashlea & Andrew contacted me when they were planning a trip to Cornwall to visit Andrew's family. Although Andrew was born English he grew up in America where he met the wonderful Ashlea. They wanted Cornish beauty and also ruins so we headed off to Restormel Castle - a 13th century circular keep with panoramic views, it was definitely a WOW factor day!!! We spent our time exploring the keep, climbing the stairs, and adventuring in to the woodland beyond the castle...
Lurking beyond the farming fields and deep into the woods of Winterborne Zelston in North Dorset, a magical place would appear once a year. As you stepped along the woodland trail and around the bend, the woods would open and a sea of blue would stop you in your tracks, filling you with pure delight.
