Living in London with busy work schedules meant that Lucy & Michael had very limited time to source local suppliers or liase with their Cornish venue. Hiring a wedding planner was essential to bring their vision to life and ensure smooth running on the day.
They chose to work with our recommended supplier Lester Gethings Wedding Planner who has been planning exquisite wedding celebrations for over 12 years and has meticulous planning and creative skills. He offered Lucy & Michael a high level of expert advice and guidance, assuring them that their day would be in safe hands.
Using his wealth of contacts, Lester planned a day to fit a romantic brief – a relaxed ‘wedding weekender’ that had a musical/festival vibe to it. The main aim was to be as relaxed as possible, in a scenic and romantic setting.
“The wedding was very flower heavy which is exactly what we wanted. This combined with the gorgeous table linen, tableware, lighting, wedding stationery etc which Lester sourced, made for our perfect wedding!”
Our venue has the most beautiful church on site, which was beautifully decorated by our florist Simon Nickell. He and his team created a gorgeous arch of flowers at the entrance, and inside there were wonderful flower filled urns and decorated pew ends; it was absolutely gorgeous. We also had live performances throughout the ceremony.
Waiters lined the driveway and welcomed guests with champagne. The garden had been dressed with leather club chairs and other seating where the guests could enjoy the musical entertainment. We created an impromptu stage with a farm trailer from the estate, which Michael and his band used for a set, with much encouragement from the guests.
This was held in the garden room with a marquee extension, and again Simon wowed us with the most fabulous flowers which filled the room with fragrance.
We were very proud of the way the wedding breakfast came together. The combination of the flowers, the attention to detail with the tableware and linens, and fantastic lighting really looked fabulous. We also had a flood of compliments about the quality of the music across the whole weekend, and we were blown away by some of the performances.
Lester really brought everything together superbly and made the whole event very easy for us to sit back and enjoy
