Private Venue Isobel and Chris

Isobel and Chris always wanted a blank canvas for their wedding, a very big blank canvas, they chose a field and a cowshed in the middle of the Cornish countryside.

Their suppliers were selected via recommendations from friends and family and all were local.

The Dress

The dress Isobel always wanted a 1950s style wedding dress, she tried on several and was a bit disappointed and even started to move away from her original idea. But finally, she fell in love with 'the one' a strapless knee-length white dress, with a fitted corset and tulle skirt something she could twirl around in!

The dress she loved came from Pretty Smithy Bridal it had a handmade lace bolero with pearl button detailing which meant that Isobel actually had two dresses! A daytime dress with the lace bolero over it and a strapless party dress for the evening. Perfect!

Highlights of their day

Their beautiful candle-lit ceremony with all of our favourite family and friends in the cow-shed (plus the distraction of a rather loud tractor driving past) the hilarious speeches, and their wedding party or 'rave' which included glow sticks and glitter paint, a sack race and the conga with the band!
