We were thrilled to play a small part in the utterly beautiful Cornish nuptials of Newlyn born Olympic double gold medalist rower Helen Glover and TV Wildlife presenter Steve Backshall. Attended by Olympians and Steve’s former dance companions from Strictly Come Dancing, this really was a star studded event.

The couple chose to host their wedding at Porth-En-Alls at Prussa Cove near Penzance. A series of clifftop fields which jut out into the sea played host to their ceremony and marquee. For their ceremony guests sat on staw bales and looked on as the couple said their vows in the open air with Mounts Bay and St Michael’s Mount behind them. Their spacious marquee from Absolute Canvas was set up in the adjacent field and over looked Prussa Cove and out to sea.
We worked with Helen and Steve’s chosen florist, Wedding Flowers in Cornwall, to provide a number of floral props, including shepherds crooks, an antique wooden ladder and vintage coloured glass bottles. Anna and her team at Wedding Flowers in Cornwall set to work creating a stunning floral chandelier using the ladder and bottles that hung from the marquee ceiling directly over Helen and Steve’s top table.

As a nod to Helen’s recent success at the Rio Olympics, the family had created a Golden Gate for the couple as entrance to their remote hideaway honeymoon cottage. We thought it was a charming and really wonderful touch for this inspirational couple. Congratulations Helen and Steve.
