If you are reading this and you are getting married at Porth-en-alls then be secure in the knowledge that it doesn’t need a thing to make it a spectacular occasion. We had much fun making beautiful upcycled things for this wedding in the run up, but had a major storm during the wedding day which provided certain challenges with the marquee being perched on a rock (!). That aside, the setting itself is so beautiful, you don’t need a thing. It was the most memorable day of our life. Such a fantastic week followed. We are truly humbled by our friends and family xx

The aisle if the weather is fine with beautiful climbing roses in June (Above).
Getting ready in The Workshop with the bridesmaids. (One of the best views from a bed ever).
Magical walk before we go down ‘the aisle’.
… then through this beautiful gate.
Homemade confetti. Thank you Mum x

Beautiful flowers from St Mellion Flowers. Thank you.
Vintage paper fans went down a treat and were made by upcycled old bits of sheet music. Do it yourself. This was the table plan.
We had cracking roast beef & pavlova from Kerra’s Catering who did an amazing job on the day..especially after taking a tumble in the mud outside & THEN having to move the bar inside when the electrics cut out…
And then the storm hit and we all moved inside! With many slipping in the mud en route! eek!
But all was well – we had 12kg of cheese from Bath Soft Cheese, Green’s of Glastonbury and Tamar Valley Dairy to work through…Not to mention the honourable Ann’s Pasties – Lizard Point. Delivered hot for us. What a gem.
Victims of the storm…
Taken a few days later (with converse on under the dress!)
We hope to go back for many years to come xx
