Furniture To Suit Your Style

Whether you’re having an elegant country house soirée or a boho woodland wedding, your furniture choices are a great way to stamp some serious style.

Antique pieces like our Dressing Table are simply beautiful.  They can be used to display wedding cakes, sweeties, or perhaps a special place for your guest book.

Instead of using a hamper or basket, why not fill the drawers with snugly blankets and invite your guests to keep warm on chilly Cornish evenings.

Behind the scenes on the ‘It’s All About Love’ styled shoot

box and cox behind the scenesWhen you plan an outdoor wedding styled shoot, the very last thing you want to see is an amber severe weather warning for heavy rain and 80 mph wind, but unfortunately that’s what we got! We had to improvise and move the ceremony part of the shoot to the workshops at our shoot location, The Cornish Cutting Garden.

Our models were couple, Chloe and Sam, a real couple who are set to tie the knot in a matter of weeks. A real couple meant we could capture genuine moments of love and affection. Neither had modelled before, but did an amazing job and never once complained about being asked to stand for hours posing in the pouring rain!

Our phenomenally talented photographer, Joanne Clement from Enchanted Brides, has a way of capturing both story and beauty in its raw state. Jo embraced a deluge of Cornish wind and rain to provide us with wonderfully atmospheric, love and laughter filled images!

The Cornish Cutting Garden gave us a wonderful setting for our shoot.  With both wild and nurtured spaces, horticulturalist and florist, Clare Webb, tends and grows all the foliage and flowers used in their wedding displays and arrangements.

The large wooden archway was given an organic and romantic feel, and created the centrepiece for the shoot. Adorned by Clare from The Cornish Cutting Garden with beautiful foliage, herbs, moss, and in-season florals, the arch had glorious colour and texture.  Aged tin cans filled with bright spring blooms, willow balls, potted plants and an abundance of chalkboards gave the ceremony a budget friendly, stripped back look.

The beautiful stationary, embellished with sparkling glitter gold detail added a sense of luxury to the occasion. Honey, the superstar four legged ring barer, giant balloon and 1930s bicycle provided us with the opportunity to capture some playful moments and stolen kisses between our bride and groom. The traditional lemonade stand, festooned with pastel bunting, complimented the spring colours of the flowers and added to the sense of celebration.

Hotly Anticipated Wedding Trends for 2016

Weddings taking place in 2016 are predicted to be a far more luxurious party affair this year.  Metallic will be the most heavily featured colour, with both rose gold and copper cropping up in all styles of weddings.  Cakes, stationary, table arrangements and wedding attire will all be touched by metallic fever.

Other colours to feature include apricot, grey/blue and jewel tones.  When combined with glitter, captivating lighting, and absolutely everything monogrammed, 2016 is set to be exceptionally decedent.

The floral installation will be a big feature this year, with chandeliers, archways, and flower walls all creating a feast for the eyes.  The oversized bouquet, harking back to the decant 1920s will also be a popular choice.

Festival and whimsical style weddings continue to surge in popularity, with a real back to nature feel.  Think weather worn wood, outdoor ceremonies, tipi tents, hay bale seating, naked cakes, moss and wild flowers.

Stripes and chevrons as well as art deco geometric patterns will cross over between festival style and luxe city weddings, cropping up in table linens, cakes, décor and stationary.
