An Artisan Collaboration

The day is finally here! I get to show you an incredible story and a rare behind the scenes look at an Artisan collaboration with some amazingly talented, local suppliers here in Cornwall.

There is often so much more to creating a bespoke bridal look than you might think. The beauty in the creative process is one to be treasured and appreciated, as well as admiring the stunning finished product. There is so much planning, thought and craft that goes into each aspect, it's a pleasure to show you more to the story.

Each one of our buisnesses has a deep respect for our natural and organic environment and in this instance, we focused our inspiration around our beautiful home by the sea in Cornwall. Taking you from the very beginning, we show you the wonderful possibilities of organic product, materials and processes in creating a bridal look, starting with the organic/eco friendly silk fabrics, using local Camellia flowers for natural dyeing, through to creating a bespoke wedding gown, organic flowers for the bouquet, beautiful stationary, locally crafted jewellery and stunning film photography.

This is something I can truly say I am deeply passionate about, it is an incredibly exciting thing to create such beauty whilst doing what we can for our enivornment and it shows how easily accessible it can be. I plan to write a future blog post going into more detail about the amazing organic/eco friendly fabrics that I used to create the bepoke wedding gown.

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.
