Today I am taking you off to one of my favourite places in the world, Cornwall. I spent my childhood years growing up in Cornwall, and even though I left when I was 18 to move ‘up North’ it still has a very special place in my heart, which is why I love featuring weddings from Cornwall so much. Today’s wedding features one of the most gorgeous Cornish wedding venues, Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay. A stunning beach side venue with the most amazing views and terrific backdrop for photos. Carly and Pete have done an amazing job of making this wedding super pretty, with just the right balance of DIY projects to keep it personal, while bringing in the best suppliers to make sure it all runs smoothly. Johnny Dent Photography was there to capture the day for us in style.
Carly and Pete were married on 25th May 2018 (and Pete’s 35th Birthday – double celebration and a date he will never now forget) The ceremony was held at Church: St Paul – Ludgvan with the reception at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, Cornwall. ‘Pete’s mum was a vicar at St Paul (and sadly passed away 3 months before we got together), and so there was no question as to where we wanted our ceremony to be (albeit it ever so bittersweet on the day). Lusty was a no-brainer for us, we wanted to have a big party by the beach and Lusty gave us the laid back, boho wedding we were looking for! Plus a pizza oven! Who doesn’t want pizzas on their big day?! We ha 100 ish guests and it took 1 year and 3 months to plan.’
Happy Monday, and here we are again at the start of another wonderful week. How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful. I took Friday afternoon off to treat myself to a make up shop, so the weekend started early. I then went out with Nik and some friends to see Rhod Gilbert which was a fab night. Saturday I worked and yesterday we all went to see Marvel Universe, which was excellent. Dexter LOVED it! So a fun packed weekend. Today we start the week with a trip to New York for the wedding of Rita and Joey who were married on 4th July in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Winery. The whole day is super stylish, the couple look great together and the venue is just a wonderful backdrop to a cool laid back wedding. I love all the flowers and how they work against the wood of the venue. Everly Studios was there to capture the day perfectly for us.
I haven’t shared a DIY with you for quite a while now, so when I was sent this gorgeous and pretty simple Photo Display idea I knew it would be the perfect DIY tutorial to share with you. I am seeing more and more photo display walls at weddings, so this wooden embroidery hoop idea is the perfect way to incorporate this fab trend into your wedding day. You can decorate it with flowers or with anything that goes along with your wedding theme. You could paint them to match your colour scheme or leave them minimal, it’s totally up to you.
As the age of ‘do-it-yourself’ all of us crafty people rejoice. Not only does this popular trend save us money, but it also gives us the ability to express ourselves creatively and work with our hands.
Something fun that always brings a personal element to any wedding decor is a wall or area for a photo display. The variety of how photo walls are made is vast, so the direction you can take for hanging photos on your wedding are endless.
One fun idea is using embroidery hoops of different sizes to hang on a wall at your wedding. It is a sweet and creative way to highlight your picture so that when guests wander through they can stop and admire all the special moments you wish to remember forever.
Displaying pictures in hoops is an easy project that isn’t super tedious and time consuming. It can be done in one evening. The end result is super cute and you can really add your own spin to it.
Happy Friday everyone, how are you all? I hope you have had a good week so far? I am very happy it’s the weekend. I finish work at lunch time today and then I am going to get my make up done as I am going out this evening. We are going to see Rhod Gilbert with some friends, I have a new outfit, new make up (by the time she has finished with me) Dexter is at his Nanna’s house, so we are ready to hit the town. Saturday is a chilled one and then Sunday we are taking Dexter to see Marvel Universe, I’m not sure who is more excited, him, me or Nik! We are finishing off the week with this lovely wedding from Peter Hugo Photography. Anna and Richie got married in Cumbria this spring in a beautiful ceremony held at Eden Wedding Barn. They filled the ceremony and reception area with lots of gorgeous flowers, fairy lights and pretty rustic touches. Such a lovely day.
Anna and Richie were married on13th April 2019 at Eden Wedding Barn, Kirby Stephen in Cumbria. ‘The second we got to Eden Barn we knew it was something special. It’s really tucked away and felt very private, at the end of a little country lane past farms and farmyard machinery! You would never know it was there which felt really private. We had 80 guests then 110 on the evening. It only took one year to plan. I bought my dress one year to the day before the wedding.’

Scarlett and Tyler were married on 19th April 2019 at Smoky Hollow Studios in Los Angeles, which is such a cool wedding venue. A Studio warehouse venue with so many opportunities for amazing photos and cool wedding details. Scarlett and Tyler have been together for 8 years and look stunning together, their whole wedding party is super cool and they have finished off every last details of this wedding to perfection.
