Hello! How do you fancy being whisked away this morning? As I sit at my desk to write this wedding blog post I’m still dreaming of my holiday in Cornwall last month: golden sands, rich blue seas, sunshine and happy days with family… and I’m sat here with my chin on my hands, wishing I could be magically transported back to the seaside just for a little while longer!
I have the next best thing. Especially in the world of weddings and blogs we all share, I have something wonderful for you this morning. Scroll through the pics, turn your imagination up full blast and imagine you too can feel the sand between your toes and the wind in your hair, hear the waves and enjoy the laughter of all your friends and family: join me and enjoy Leah and Glen’s wonderful wedding in Cornwall.
Thank you to Sarah of Green Photographic for submitting this gorgeous wedding for the blog. Watch out for super-pretty peony bouquets, sweet-as-ice-cream pink and cream cupcakes and a beautiful wedding wishing tree to inspire your own wedding day!
Before the wedding
The theme colours for Leah and Glen’s wedding are deliciously sweet and pretty pale cream and pink – it’s such a delicate light theme it works beautifully with the seaside wedding location and lovely summer sunshine.
The wedding: love, smiles and laughter
Wedding reception at Polhawn Fort, Cornwall
Polhawn Fort is a beautiful wedding venue overlooking the beach. The website made me smile: the fort’s history is a peaceful one, as it was built purely to persuade Napoleon not to attack English shores. Apparently, it did the trick!
A great idea for a wedding wishing tree: branches painted white, held down with pebbles and decorated with a few paper roses and some crystal beads. The lamp alongside is a clever touch which adds sparkle! Leah and Glen have added a basket with little tags for guests to write, some scatter crystals and pens, as well as the little vintage frame with an explanation of what to do!

A wedding day walk on the beach
In this quiet little corner of Cornwall, there’d be no excuse not to take a stroll on the sandy beach. I love these photos: the sea and skies speak of a world of possibilities ahead for the bride and groom.

Thank you to Sarah from Green Photographic for sharing the wedding photos – I do love a wedding with a sense of fun, and what could be better than paddling in the sea on Cornish shores?!
