Laura and Reece first made contact with us at the brilliant Wed Magazine wedding fair at Boconnoc all the way back in spring 2015. We met again a few weeks later to discuss plans for their wedding, and boy were they organized!
Laura revealed to me that she was four months pregnant and the wedding would be happening in the summer of 2016 to give themselves time to adjust to life as new parents. Before their baby daughters arrival they had already saved and planned their entire wedding so all that had to be done was relax and enjoy parenthood!
We chatted at length about their wedding plans, an outdoor ceremony taking place at Trevenna Barns the edge of Bodmin Moor. They used our Festoon Poles to mark the start of their aisle with hampers filled with confetti for guests.
They chose a number of games to keep big kids and small amused whilst the drinks reception took place on the lovely lawn terraces before heading in to Trevenna’s permanent marquee for the wedding breakfast.
Laura and Reece chose to decorate their tables with our vintage glass bottles, enamel jugs and birdcages, all filled with florals. Our Victorian Scales, Retro Typewriter, Gramophone, Tin Horse, and Luggage all added vintage touches to their day.
Since our launch in 2014 we have been evolving the Box and Cox collection and quickly out growing all the rented spaces we’ve occupied. This summer, during our busiest ever month, we made the move into our largest space to date. From our rural 19th Century stone barn we are now able to offer our clients the opportunity to view the Box and Cox collection in person.
Our online catalogue still remains the most popular way of seeing our collection, but for those who want to chat, play about with ideas, and see our larger items like our wedding archways, assembled, the new space offers a terrific opportunity.
The photos of the new space are thanks to the wonderful Anna Burt at Exposure Photo Agency. One of the great benefits of working within Weddings and Events is you meet so many wonderful and talented folk. Anna and her husband Simon Burt are seasoned wedding photographers, who also happen to have an extensive portfolio of commercial and journalistic photography. It was an honour to work with Anna and we are thrilled with her images of our new space. Thank you Anna!
Nothing beats a wedding in Cornwall. Whether a chic city venue, rustic barn, or a manor by the sea, Cornwall has it all.
For us at Box and Cox, January and February are the months when brides and grooms start to make those final plans for their beautiful summer wedding. As visions of croquet and Pimms on the lawn brighten the bleak winter days, enquiries and bookings for our games, vintage drinks stands, and deckchairs soar.
So just to wet your appetite for what can be expected from our 2016 couples, here’s a few of our favourites from last year! Enjoy!
