Lottie and Paul's Cornish Wedding - Meadowy vibes and a man in uniform.
We love working with all our brides but it is always so lovely when you get to design florals for someone you know! Lottie and Paul are very good friends of T's, so much so that she was asked to also be a witness at the wedding, and have become good friends of mine too. Looking through all these photographs was such a joy and so hard to just pick a select few for our blog.
The couple wanted a super relaxed feel to the day with a small ceremony at the rather grand and stunningly beautiful Port Eliot, St Germans in Cornwall inside the Orangery with all the guests going back to the holiday house which they rented for a meal prepared by their very own chef! The day started with bacon sarnies all round which if you ask me should be compulsory on the morning of a wedding. I just had to start the blog with the bacon pictures, it just looks so good!
Paul is a Marine so wore his full dress uniform for the day with Lottie opting for a little less traditional sage green dress which suited her skin tone beautifully. Lottie had her dress specially made as she is expecting her first baby any day now, exciting!
In terms of florals Lottie wanted quite a wild asymmetric design with plenty of texture finished of with ribbon trails. The flowers chosen were freesia, scented narcissus, broom, lisianthus and plenty of eucalyptus and tanacetum. Our bride has gorgeous long auburn hair and wanted a flower crown to compliment her lovely locks, so the design was kept really wild with some absolutely stunning large blooms in there.
Lottie only had one bridesmaid, her sister Jess, who had a hand tied posy with flowers and foliage similar to the bride but on a smaller scale. Paul had a sprig style buttonhole which sat nicely just above his medals.
Massive thanks to Drew Forsyth Photography for sending us all the incredible images. I am sure this isn't the last we will see of this wedding. Enjoy!
