It rained all day for Dan and Sally's late autumn wedding but they didn't care! The best way to be and wow, what a fabulous day it was full of fun and style. It was my first visit to Cosawes Barton and I must say I fell in love with this venue straight away. Set in 17 acres of Cornish woodland and fields this beautiful historic 17th century estate is a pleasure for the eye and offers endless photo opportunities. Shame about the rain, but we still managed to get out there and get some beautiful couple photos, I'm so pleased Dan and Sally are such a relaxed couple and enjoyed putting their wellies on for the photoshoot.
For the reception entrance, Dan pushed Sally on a wheelbarrow, great fun! I also loved the gin theme going on, the tables were all named after different gins and there was a Gin Mix Bar of course, 'let the celebrations be Gin!' Being a gin lover myself, this really scored some extra points! The main bar was a sailing boat, not just an ordinary sailing boat, but Dan's childhood boat on which he learned to sail. Another lovely personal touch were the framed images in the woodland telling Dan and sally's love story. They really planned this for a while and most of the decoration was DIY. The cake wasn't your ordinary wedding cake, it was gluten free chocolate brownies covered in strawberries and cream, hence it wasn't your ordinary 'cut the cake' image, which I loved, and did i mention it made your mouth water just looking at the mountain of goodness!
The highlight of the day was Sally's dad's surprise: he ordered some royal marine drummers just after the first dance! It was spectacular and Sally almost couldn't hold back her tears.
Everything about this wedding was just beautiful, a great example that you can have a blast on your wedding day in Cornwall inspite of the rain!
