One of the most romantic venues in Cornwall, Polhawn Fort stands in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Rame Peninsula.
Jenny and Rich’s elegant summer wedding took full advantage of all this stunning place has to offer.
We first started chatting with Jenny about her wedding back in Summer 2015. She had so many fantastic ideas for hers and Rich’s day and it was an absolute pleasure working all the little details through with her.
The couple were married in a local church, before inviting guests to their cliff top fortress for a fun filled, foodie reception.
The couple chose to set up a rustic drinks station for their guests to enjoy self-serving their own summer drinks. Drinks jars for cocktails, tin baths as ice buckets, create an on-trend look.
Outdoor seating continued the rustic vibe with hay bales encircling a fire pit. Jenny chose to top the bales with our hessian sacks for a little extra comfort for guests.
Our Seaside Peep Board, fete and lawn games were set up on Polhawn’s lower terrace. They went down a storm with young and old alike, and created plenty of laughter.
A DIY photobooth was created in an arched doorway. Jenny hung our gold frame and used our fancy dress suitcase for guests to snap some memorable photos!
Dancing the night away to live music rounded off the incredible day, our illuminated BAR sign adding to the atmosphere of the evenings festivities.
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.
