A wedding dress with pockets (yes pockets!), the groom and groomsmen in kilts and pasties in the evening - this wedding was a gorgeous combination of the Bride and Groom's Cornish and Scottish heritage. It was an intimate affair with 30 guests, keeping it small this wedding is the epitome of quality over quantity. Our handpicked supplier Trevenna Barns in Cornwall was the perfect location to host their day, with Cardinham Woods providing beautiful natural scenery for some couple portraits but also Holywell Bay was close by for another stunning backdrop!

What Made Our Day Unique

Craig & I are both really proud of our Celtic heritages (I am Cornish and he is Manx-Scottish). Despite living in and getting married in Cornwall, we wanted to give subtle nods and acknowledgements of both heritages throughout the day. He wore his kilt, the buttonholes included thistles, we served pasties in the evening, etc.

Wedding Dress With Pockets

A wedding dress with pockets is the ultimate dream for any bride - super handy to keep your lippy in for top-ups throughout the day, especially if you opt for a cool red lip like our bride Rachael. It took over a year for Rachael to find 'the' dress for her big day, but good things come to those who wait and this Jesus Peiro a-line number with lace detail looks simply stunning!

Inspiration & Styling

Relaxed, rustic, and filled to the brim with foliage and flowers. Craig & I didn't want a wedding where we'd stay up all night stressing about whether or not we'd chosen the right cheesecake. We spent money on things we valued, threw most traditional "roles" out of the window, and prioritised love and a good time! We always knew we wanted to get legally married outdoors, and so our venue choice was based around that. Outside, beneath the harbour and beside the rolling, British countryside.

Rachael and Craig decided to get creative and write their own vows. Writing your own vows or picking specific readings can add a very personal touch to any wedding day. We have created a hub that has a whole heap of wedding readings and ideas for you to get inspired!
