Faith & Jack’s movie themed wedding in Cornwall, with Alexa Poppe Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

I’m in love with this wedding – there’s nature everywhere, it’s green and gorgeous – and Yoda’s even in it. Faith and Jack made their day uniquely, brilliantly and beautifully personal to them. They look amazing. The whole day is fabulous. Gorgeous images are by Alexa Poppe Photography and as always, there’s more on our @englishweddingblog instagram!

Wedding photographer review

Alexa was incredible. We felt so comfortable with her, she let us just be ourselves and her pictures are beautiful. Our guests said that whenever they saw something lovely happening they would turn round and there she was capturing the moment. Alexa was able to capture the day so well, and we will really cherish these photos and the lasting memories.

Your best moment or memory

The ceremony for us was amazing, the actual getting married part! One of our best friends married us. It was so personal, and just made it that much more special. Also running around in a field when the sun came out was good fun too!

Tell us anything you did differently – we love hearing about NEW traditions (or none at all!)

Both Mum and Dad walked Faith down the aisle, it was really important to Faith for her parents to experience that. We didn’t have a top table, we were in amongst our guests in the middle of the room.

Venue name + review

The Green Cornwall –

The team at The Green were amazing, from start to finish they help us realise our dream wedding. It is such a stunning venue and we also loved the fact that we could stay on site with our guests for the weekend too; it made it that little bit extra special. The food was incredible, the day ran so smoothly, even with last minute weather changes, they were just amazing!

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

We wanted to make sure our bridesmaids and groomsmen felt comfortable, so we didn’t pick their outfits for them. We just said green, any green! We love the fact that they all ended up being different shades of green! Jack got his suit made in the same shop that his brother got his wedding suit made. Faith’s dress was the third one she tried on, and just felt so confident in it. The embroidered leafy top with the clean skirt just “made me feel so like me, even though it was like nothing I’d ever worn before”. Dance tests were of course conducted in it too! For both of us sustainability is important, so Jack wanted to have a suit he could wear again and Faith is getting her dress made into a jumpsuit (and probably dying it green).

Dress: Bridal Caprice-

The team at Bridal Caprice were amazing. “They were so friendly and made me feel so comfortable, I always looked forward to going there for my fittings, and they made me feel incredible in my dress.”

Suit: Norton & Townsend –

Graham Hall made Jack’s suit. He was an amazing tailor- the suit was designed to be breathable because of it being a summer wedding. It was incredibly comfortable and had a great finish.

Styling and decor name + review

The Table Decor was done by Unique Designs by Tina –

We had trees as our centre pieces, and these were moved onto plinths around the room with tea lights in them for the evening. Fred and Tina were amazing, so friendly and cheery.

All of their centre pieces, although aren’t real look incredible; so it’s all reusable! We loved feeling like we were having our wedding breakfast in a forest. And they were so great at helping us realise our ideal designs for the tables, menu/name cards and our table plans!

Florist name + review

The Flowers (the bouquets, boutonnières and corsages were by Green Rabbit Flowers – The flowers were beautiful and we couldn’t have been happier with Gemma’s designs. Gemma grows all of her own flowers and only delivers locally which we loved too!

Cake maker name + review

We didn’t have a cake. More time for dancing! We also spent that budget on a keg of local beer! (Tribute)

Stationery maker’s name + review

We made our own save the dates and invites. We got them printed on seeded paper so people could plant wild flowers. The table name cards and menus were done by Unique Designs by Tina. Our name cards and menus were made to look like ticket stubs and had quotes from the movies on them.

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

One of our best friends made our wedding rings. He is a jeweller and did such an amazing job. We love our rings so much.

We designed the table signs, and plan; they were all film names. And we decorated them with props and objects from the movies. We also had a savoury pic n mix stand that had things like corn, cheesy moments, pretzels etc and we brought some second hand jars and utensils with paper cups for people to put together snacks for themselves throughout the day. We had so much left over though! People took boxes home (including some of the venue staff haha!!)

Wedding readings?

We didn’t have any readings, but our officiant wrote our vows and they were based around TV and film characters. So we promised to be the “Frodo to your Sam” and the “Bob to your Linda”, the “Yzma to your Kronk” things like that. He also put so many film quotes in, it was so cute!

First dance song? Playlist recommendations?

Our first dance song was ‘Fooled Around and Fell in Love’ by Elvin Bishop. We were friends for a while before we became a couple, and kind of accidentally fell in love. We followed up our first dance immediately with ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’ by The Darkness, was a floor filler! The DJ was great and really enjoyed the night- said he enjoyed it as much as we did 🙂 Definitely chat with your DJ beforehand and give a list of “do not plays” and “definitely play” this helps them understand your music taste better!

Hair + makeup name + review

Hair: Kimberly Holland –

Kimberly’s hair styling is just stunning and she just made us all look and feel incredible. We had such a wonderful morning with her as well.

Make-Up: Hannah Symons –

Hannah managed to make me and the rest of the gang look amazing. She was so much fun to giggle with as well and was just wonderful.

Entertainment and games

We also had games in the barn (which would have been outside if there hadn’t have been a weather warning for wind on the day!)

Archery: Lonewolf Archery – The archery was so much fun and the instructor Nicola was amazing.

Games: Vintage Fun and Games – Beautiful wooden games and had so much fun playing these!
