Helen and Mike’s elegant Trevenna Barns wedding, with Tracey Warbey Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

I love the look of today’s wedding: the perfect mix of elegance in a country venue; with foliage throughout the styling and some beautiful forever memories. The flowers are divine, the cake just perfect, and our bride and groom such a gorgeous couple! This is how paper lanterns look beautiful: in a blank canvas venue to add shape and colour where it’s needed! Watch out for the loveliest dog ever…

Helen and Mike had planned a lovely outdoor ceremony but when the heavens opened they luckily had a plan be and moved proceedings indoors to the Garden Room, which was beautifully decorated to match the wedding colour scheme of ivory, cream and green.

Helen wore an elegant, sleek wedding dress from Sam Cox Bridal, with dusky blue suede sling-back heels to match the colours in her bouquet. She opted for pastel shades for her wedding flowers, which were provided by St Mellion Flowers and consisted of roses, stocks, and blue thistle, tied with hessian and a pastel blue ribbon.

Helen’s three bridesmaids all wore dusky silver/light grey chiffon dresses with simple bouquets consisting of a single rose with eucalyptus. Her three flower girls wore flower crowns and wrist corsages, which were in keeping with the bridesmaid’s flowers.

Fastened to the bouquet was a small photo of Helen’s father, and a larger frame also containing a picture of her father was seated next to her mother in the Garden Room for the ceremony. This is the loveliest way to have someone by your side who can’t be there – I think it’s a wonderful touch for all those of you who have lost a parent too soon.
