Before, I tell you about the day itself, let's rewind a little.
Fleur and Mark booked the function room for their wedding ceremony earlier in the year, not long after we had finalised our prices and ideas for weddings at Trenance.
Fleur came to see us at our wedding open day and loved the venue. We were able to put Fleur in touch with Rose, our retired florist and helper and together they discussed ideas for flowers for the function room.
On the weeks leading up to the wedding, Fleur came to visit the function room to try out the music system and run through what would happen during the ceremony itself.
The day before the wedding, our volunteers set to work, preparing the room. Fleur and Mark chose the ivory lace and organza chair sashes, red carpet and topiary bushes which were included in the Trenance wedding package. In addition, Fleur chose to hire the vintage white wooden ladders and wooden love letters with several lace covered jam jars filled with purple gypsophilia.
As Fleur and Mark had chosen purple for their wedding colours, the room was enhanced with beautiful purple floral displays created by Rose who came down the night before, armed with buckets upon buckets of fresh flowers and greenery. During the course of the afternoon and evening, Rose worked her magic transforming the room and creating her arrangements on site.
Rose chose mixed purple and mauve stocks to decorate the wooden ladders and created beautiful displays for the ledges and window sills. In addition, Rose created a stunning purple pedestal display along with outdoor purple arrangements to frame the entrance way.
The aisle chair sashes were brought to life with mauve carnation heads,
Other details in the room included the lovely hessian bunting (made by one of our clever volunteers) and Fleur personalised this with a beautiful bespoke lucky horse shoe which had been made as a gift from a friend.
Although the outdoor area is currently looking beautiful with all the geraniums in full bloom, Rose created purple displays to fame the door and Fleur chose the pink vintage delivery bike with bunting and hydrangea heads as extra decoration. Both the bike and the floral displays complimented each other perfectly. Spookily enough, the flowers in the gardens were also purple which matched Fleur and Mark's theme perfectly.
When the big day came, we couldn't have asked for better weather! Beautiful blue skies and gorgeous hot temperatures. Guests arrived early and mingled on the patio, with many enjoying a drink from the coffee shop as they waited. The patio area was roped off giving the wedding party their own private space.
Fleur arrived at the cottages in a beautiful white and green camper van called Lucky (available to hire from honey bugs wedding cars in Newquay). Whilst the ceremony took place, a couple of the younger members of the wedding party chose to play in the gardens and have a few photos 'driving the camper van'.
Fleur's purple floral hair decoration, button holes and bouquet were made by Kelly Ann's in Newquay.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed the the sunshine on the patio whilst Fleur and Mark had photos on the bridge followed by photos in the rose gardens.
Following photos, the wedding moved onto the Plume of Feathers in Mitchell for a reception and carried on the camper theme by hiring the awesome Cornwall Photo Bus, a mobile photo booth (www.cornwallphotobus.co.uk).
We wish Fleur and Mark our heart felt congratulations! Xx
