Here we go then – part two of Sarah & Doug’s Cornish wedding and things are about to get colourful! On Saturday 16th June the couple hosted a humanist ceremony and reception at Rosewastis Manor in St Columb Major. They had a quirky tent marquee from Ashley Events which they decorated themselves. In fact the couple and some of their guests actually rented the manor for the whole week before to set up and just enjoy spending some time together before the wedding.
For this second part of the wedding, Sarah wore a Lisa Redman wedding gown which she found at a charity bridal sale in London. Her shoes were from Irregular Choice, her headpiece was made by her and a friend from vintage pieces and her ring was her Grandmothers.
“We love a good fancy dress party and usually put them on with a group of friends going to town on the decorations”, Sarah explained. “We have done themes such as Circus of horrors, Murder Mystery, Super Heroes, and 80s parties. We wanted our wedding to be just like a massive party for us and we took inspiration from blogs, magazines, our friends and our imagination.”
“We weren’t scared to do it our wedding our way and were lucky not to have had the traditional wedding pressures that some couples get. Our Save the Date’s were really unique. We hand delivered rhubarb chutney to everyone in boxes with a card for their fridge, plus magnets, pins and a sticker for their diary. This set the bar high and our theme! We wanted to make people realise that our wedding wasn’t going to be very traditional. Our wedding was just a mash up of all the things we love… A colourful, retro quirky village fete vintage inspired feast for the eyes!”
