Cornwall Today Magazine

I really adore collaborative shoots and this month I had the chance to be involved with a fantastic team of suppliers on a styled shoot for Cornwall Today Magazine. A recommendation of favourite Cornish wedding suppliers by Jenny Wren Weddings and Events, the shoot was at the beautiful Pengenna Manor, an 800 year old private family home and wedding venue.

The cold January weather made the warming fire inside even more inviting. The table was dressed with a grey/yellow colour theme, with illustrated name cards created by Pip Designs and finished with a centre piece of colourful flowers by Wedding Flowers in Cornwall. There was the finest attention to detail even down to hand painted biscuits by Emily Hankins and grey wooden chairs by Star Gazey Hire, creating a wonderful combination of modern country chic and historic family home. 

Despite the freezing weather, braving the elements was definitely worth it, showcasing the romance of a winter wedding in Cornwall and perfect to keep in mind if you're planning a winter wedding.

A Winter Wedding Open Day at Trereife House

Yesterday I had the pleasure of showing my 'Perl Collection' of wedding dresses at the wonderful Trereife House, a beautiful manor house and wedding venue nestled at the very southern end of Cornwall. They opened their doors to couples to take an exclusive look around the house and enchanting estate, and gave them the chance to meet a selection of brilliant handpicked suppliers from ornate cake designs, to wedding day food inspiration.

A warming open fire and a beautiful live piano performance really set a romantic winter wedding scene throughout the house. Upstairs I showcased my collection in a beautiful room along with Jenny Wren Weddings and Events and had an amazing time talking to couples about plans for their big day. Thank you so much to the Le Grice family for a wonderful day.

The Perl Collection

I am so excited to share with you that 'The Perl Collection' will be available in October. It is currently all hands on deck hand finishing all the pieces from design to creation, using only 100% silk and fabrics made in Italy and France.

There are four options to choose from. The first two looks 'Tegan and Gwynn' are separates which you can interchange, giving you the freedom to create the exact look you want and are created using a stunning, 20s esque, intricately beaded tulle, a gorgeous flowing georgette and an amazingly soft double crepe to feel incredible against the skin. The third look 'Isel' uses a French Chantilly Lace within the bodice and as part of the incredibly soft, delicate looking skirt which is pannelled to create volume and flow. The fourth look 'Lowena' is something I'm incredibly excited about. The fabric is a beautiful soft pink, floral print georgette, made in Italy by a company which holds a royal warrant from the Queen. Five metres make up the volume of the skirt to give you the full impact of the stunning print. Something a little different from the norm of bridal!

'The Perl Collection' uses words from the Cornish language to name each look, reflecting my love for my home county and the amazing design we inspire. The names 'Tegan, Gwynn, Isel and Lowena' mean pretty, fair, soft and joy. 

I can't wait to show you!

A Beautiful Wedding

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of Billy and Annie, in the gorgeous setting of St Just in Roseland. Annie wore a bespoke gown and veil made with a stunning lace, a sand washed crepe and an embellished trim to finish off the neckline and back detail, all handmade in my studio. We wanted a vintage feel, whilst remaining soft and delicate, layering the skirt with a delicate georgette under the lace. What an amazing day it was and Annie looked stunning!
