Leah and Matt’s Stylish Cornish Wedding By Debs Ivelja

Today I am taking you on a trip to sunny Cornwall. OK t’s not all sunny, The first half is rain filled, while the second half is like being on a tropical island. Having lived in Cornwall for 18 years I can verify that this is a typical Cornish day whether wise, one minute sunny the next chucking it down, but I guess that is part of Cornwall’s charm! The photos taken by the hugely talented Debs Ivelja are just beautiful, clean, crisp and really show off the scenery and blue sky’s to their best. A truly stunning Cornish wedding full of style, charm and amazing views.

‘It was like being in two countries on the day, one in rainy UK and the other on a tropical island. Seeing all the people we love all in one place made us feel truly blessed’

Matt and Leah were married on 29th May 2015 at St Ia’s Church followed by a reception at Carbis Bay Hotel. ‘St Ives was our first holiday together 6 years ago so it made sense to get married here. We had 95 guests in total. Our engagement was 2 years so I guess you could say that long to plan the wedding. Condensed down, probably about 8 months.’

How they met
We have been together 6 years

The Proposal
Matt wanted to propose in Dubai whilst on a desert safari star gazing. what he didn’t count on was the hundreds of other people that were there. He tried to find a quite time but he kept on being interrupted by loud tourists. When we left the desert, we headed back to our friends house where we were staying. Matt took me for a walk around the tropical gardens and proposed with the biggest plastic ring I have ever seen by a lake sat under a veranda. It was totally unexpected!
