Today I am thrilled to share the gorgeous Cornwall Winter Wedding of Tom and Beau at Trevanna Barns with pretty pastel details.
Images were captured by Emma Barrow Photography.

Emma says of the couple and their Cornwall Winter Wedding day…
I knew the groom from our school days through other friends, but I met Tom and Beau a couple years later at a celebration for a rugby club that my partner and Tom are members of!
So when asked to capture their day it was nice photographing them having some history with them.
Their wedding was a very wet winter day, but it really didn’t matter. Everyone stayed indoors but Tom and Beau had the venue decorated so beautifully you really didn’t need to go outside anyway!
The day was relaxing from start to finish and it was completely them. It had their personalities written all over it, which is what I love to see at weddings.
Some of the traditional aspects were changed with Beau giving her own heartfelt speech to Tom, a Colin & Connie Caterpillar cake, a beautiful floral dress for Beau and a dance mat for their first dance! What is not to like or enjoy about their day!

How did you meet?
We met at a pub in Plymouth after finding each other on Tinder, and it went from there!
Tell us about the Proposal…
We went going away on holiday to North Wales and stopped at Chirk Castle, a National Trust venue.
We walked around the castle before going out to the garden to find somewhere to eat our farm shop lunch.
We found the perfect spot and after eating Tom pulled out a ring, which was made of wood and resin with a real flower inside.
The strangest part was that I had dreamt that he had proposed to me the night before and told him about it when I woke up that morning!
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
Our wedding planning journey was pretty easy going, with not too many stresses.
I was making lots of little bits for the wedding which changed and evolved over time.
I had some difficulty finding my dress as I knew I wanted something different and finding that was quite difficult.
We both knew we wanted the day to be fun and as relaxed as possible and all our suppliers just felt like the right fit for us when we saw them!
We chose a venue that felt like they couldn’t do enough for us and we really appreciated that.
Our florist grew all the flowers herself too, and we really felt that she understood what we wanted and she produced the most incredible flowers for our day.
Any special touches/DIY?
For our Cornwall Winter Wedding we had lots of DIY decorations and special touches.
– I made fabric and crochet flowers for the tables which I stuck on craft wire, wrapped in fabric and put in mini watering cans.
– I handmade all the bunting, for the ceiling decoration, card basket and as place settings with our guests names stamped on.
– We had wildflower seeds wrapped in pieces of fabric, which we brought off a seller on Etsy, for favours alongside bags of chocolate honeycomb.
– We bought a personalised stamp to stamp all of the bags with.
– We made mini tables in the layout of the tables in the venue which we clipped pegs too with everyones names on.
– I constructed and painted signs for the tables, confetti and order of the day.
– I knitted shawls for myself and the bridesmaids as we got married in February, although we didn’t end up using them as the wedding was in the middle of Storm Dennis and so we didn’t go outside!
– We also had our pet guinea pigs, Sausage and Mash, represented in crochet form on the top table.
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
We chose all different pastel colours for the day.
What was the best bit of your day?
Being able to celebrate with our huge families and all our friends. This was the first time we have had both of our immediate family together.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Don’t stress and enjoy the day as much as possible because it goes so fast!
