It’s that time of year to look back and reflect on all the bloody brilliant couples I’ve shared my year with. What a year! I can’t wait for 2020. BRING IT ON!
Stunning Cornish Coastal farm wedding
Errr check THIS stunning farm wedding on the breathtaking cornish coast …….
Cornwall holds a very special place in my heart ~ So when Tegan and James asked if I would be willing to travel down to Cornwall for their wedding in September I jumped at the chance … both feet in !!
James and Tegan’s families are both originally from Cornwall, and whilst Tegan and James now live in Herefordshire, they wanted to travel back to their roots for their wedding day ~ and why on earth wouldn’t you when you could have the stunning north cornwall coastline as a back drop to your day?! James comes from a farming family and they held their reception in one of the fields on his dads farm, with the most magnificent views of the coastline ~ it was simply beautiful and completely unique ~ how many couples get to hold their wedding in such breathtaking surrounds that means so much to the and the family.
I got up early on the morning of the wedding and went down to Port Quin to have a scout out for locations as they wanted to have some photos there after the ceremony, a place that is very special to them both ~ after a 15 minute walk up the coastal path I found the perfect spot ~ I went to Tegan’s dads house where she was getting ready. “Soooo Tegan I have found an epic spot for some photos, but it is a bit of a yomp up the path, might not be great for fancy shoes…. are you up for it?!” ….. ” well Im wearing cowboy boots with my dress so I am totally up for that” … THIS is music to my ears !!
Tegan wore an elegant Naomi Neoh dress and her ‘oh so cool’ Corral cowboy boots with a pop of turquoise lining….. frankly she rocked it! James looked super sharp in his dark grey suit, dusty pink tie and some very cool brogues. What an awesome pair!
They got married in the beautiful Lanteglos Church in Camelford, which dates back to the 14th century ~ a beautiful building steeped in history, and then we headed to the coast while all the guests made their way back to the reception basked in glorious September sunshine.
Tegan and James and all their families worked so hard to make this a beautiful wedding ~ and to really make it reflect them ~ the boys button holes were made from shotgun shells, the flowers were roses and succulents in soft greys, silvers and pinks ~ The marquee was amazing, and they had hand built a bar from hay bales. The tables were dressed in simple hessian and cotton. Tegan had been collecting tin cans for the past year and left them out to weather, wrapped in lace and hessian and filled with succulents and roses. James had made a wire frame that had been filled with flowers ~ along with the table plan ~ I do love a creative person who can do a bit of repurposing !!
They had a delicious picnic all served in baskets and everyone sharing with amazing Cornish pasties, of course.
It was a day filled with love and laughter, dancing and singing from the Boscastle Buoys, a sea shanty singing group during the day and Josh Kernow in the evening ~ a proper Cornish knees up !!
Enjoy feasting your eyes on the gorgeous and epicness of this beautiful day ~
