Bethan and Rob’s wedding was held at The Eden Project in Cornwall. They took their inspiration from the domes themselves and the plants inside, creating a natural themed wedding with geometric accents.
“The ceremony and reception were both inside the Mediterranean Biome in the Eden Project”, wrote the bride. “Thematically we had nature, geometry (taking inspiration from both the biome’s hexagonal roof structure and plant life) and fun, with a hint of the mystical. We wanted to tap into our friends’ creative talents as much as possible to make it really personal.”
“Instead of flowers we chose to use succulents. There is something quite ethereal about the plumpness, gentle merging colours and geometric patterns in these beautiful plants. The wonderful thing about using succulents is that they are incredibly hardy, so even the ones that weren’t in pots (ie. my bouquet) did not go to waste. The stalks were just trimmed afterwards and they were replanted.”
“Our family and friends are all great gin lovers, so as wedding favours, we decided to offer them little medicine bottles with pipettes filled with sloe gin. I’ll never forget watching my Grandpa pipette sloe gin into his mouth between courses!”
