The Greenbank Hotel Toni and Bevin
Toni and Bevin knew that they wanted to marry in Falmouth. They visited their chosen venue The Greenbank Hotel and fell instantly in love.
"The views are just spectacular"
Toni and Bevin chose Brian Tellam for their wedding photographer.
"My husband and myself are not "photo" people so specifically looked for a photographer who wasn't all about poses etc...and more candid. Brian Tellam is fantastic and put us at complete ease in front of the camera and even managed to get us into some semi posed pictures which turned out amazing. His rapour with our guests was fantastic too."
Toni found a dress that she loved so the next step was to find a stockist and her first call was to Amanda at Amanda K Bridal who as luck would have it had the exact dress in store!
"Apparently it's rare you buy the dress you think you like but in my case it was 'The one!' I couldn't fault the boutique they put me at complete ease and made the process easy and enjoyable"
"Most of our suppliers were recommended by The Greenbank Hotel and again I'm happy to have listened to their advice... it was all tried, tested and trusted companies who delivered above and beyond."
Toni chose Cornwall Entertainment, The Hair Boutique in Truro for hair styling and Natasha Hinds for makeup and hired their Love Lights from Special Days Hire. Here's what she had to say about them and their service
Cornwall Entertainment supplied their magic mirror. "They were incredible...professional staff and such good value for money we would 100% use and recommend them.
The Hair Boutique in Truro styled her hair and Natasha Hinds was chosen for makeup "Both are worth a mention their work was sublime"
They also hired Love Lights from Special Days Hire "Not only did you offer a fantastic service you went above and beyond to help out a groom in need! Very professional and extremely reliable."
Toni had three must have accessories "A beautiful Pearl bracelet given to me by my in-laws the day before the wedding...a beautiful piece that I will pass onto my children. A bridal belt to add a bit of sparkle! And the most beautiful shoes I've ever owned.. even Cinderella would be jealous! I didn't over accessorise as I didn't want to distract from my dresses detail.
The groom was given a pocket watch that was engraved with our wedding date, a lovely accessory to cherish."
"My dress was Hudson by Maggie Sottero. It is a 2 part fit and flare dress with a crew neckline and capped sleeves it consisted of a blush pink slip with a full ivory lace overlay. It had a semi low back with a Pearl necklace that sits down the centre of your back. It was a dreamy elegant dress. I felt amazing in it and it really did fit me like a glove."
Favourite part of the day.
"Seeing my family so happy for us... seeing the joy in others made it even more special."
