Farm wedding in Cornwall: Holly & Mark's relaxed celebration

Bride and groom kissing near barn on farm


Holly and Mark's wedding took place in Cornwall last September, with an outdoor ceremony in a walled garden, followed by a laid back marquee celebration and garden games.  It all felt really perfect for them as a couple, with their clearly excellent sense of humour (see the table plan) and a relaxed and fun approach to the wedding.

Their beautiful outdoor ceremony took place in the walled garden at Holly's parents' holiday cottage, Trethurffe Manor in Cornwall.  The guests then enjoyed relaxed drinks and a go at the coconut shy before walking up through the meadow to the marquee.  I loved how pretty everything looked inside the marquee, with ivy trailing around the barrels of local cider and the most gorgeous summer flowers  decorating the long tables.  The table plan was the funniest I have seen, celebrating some of the most amusingly named places in Cornwall, with hilarious photos of Holly and Mark at each of the different location signs.  It was wonderful to see the guests laughing at these as they found their places.  Their wedding breakfast included the most delicious baked pies, with one guest at each table assigned the special apron and task of serving everyone else.

The whole day had such a relaxed and fun feel to it.  I think it is the only wedding I have been to where all the guests were served shots at the end of the meal, which led them straight into the evening dancing.  The marquee was high up with views across the hills, so it was really wonderful to watch the sun setting over the celebrations.  I loved the way the marquee then looked after dark, with the fairy lights twinkling throughout.  Have I mentioned before that you can never have too many fairy lights at your wedding venue?!  I loved photographing Holly and Mark's day and I've really enjoyed looking back at it to put this blog post together. I hope you enjoy it!
