Trevenna was the perfect venue for Alex and Piran
Trevenna was the first venue Alex and Piran visited and immediately they fell in love with the venue and knew it was exactly what they were looking for.
"We wanted somewhere that felt like our own - like we were just hosting a massive family party and Trevenna was perfect!
It’s really intimate and we loved that our guests all had their own little houses. The location is so beautiful and everything is finished to such a high spec it’s impossible not to fall in love with it!"

Alex and Piran wanted a photographer to capture real moments more candid shots than posed. Having looked through some past weddings photographed by Wild Tide Weddings they knew they were just perfect!
"Philly and Alan were so amazing!! They worked so hard and still managed to not feel invasive. Everyone has commented on how wonderful the photos are and how they managed to just capture all the love and happiness of the day!"
Alex and Piran had an engagement shoot with Wild Tide Weddings and loved their photos so much they used them for their wedding invites!
The theme White flowers and lots and lots of lush foliage!
Alex wanted her theme to be natural and simple, to enhance the natural beauty of the venue location and to bring the outside in!
Alex chose a great wedding florist for her wedding flowers one who was able to capture exactly what she wanted.
"The detail in the hanging ladder and the asymmetric arbour was perfect everything was stunning! I cried the moment I saw the bouquets – I’d managed to keep it together so far but when I saw them I was so overwhelmed with how stunning they were."
Like the look of the wedding flowers? All were designed by Ruby Alice Floral Design contact her for more information.
It was an A-line dress with a sweetheart neckline by Sophia Tolli. Alex fell in love with the layers of misty tulle (which reminded her of the fluffy peonies she wanted in her bouquet) and delicate lace appliqués and hand-beaded belt. The chapel length train was really striking timeless and elegant.
"I tried on so many dresses (over 30!) trying to find something that was comfortable but would also suit the venue. This one was the only dress I cried in – a good sign!"
Piran had a bespoke suit by Tailor me – Moss Bros.
"It was great to design the suit as we could add some thoughtful details like the buttonhole matching the colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses and our wedding date being embroidered in the inner lining of his jacket"
To finish it off Piran chose a pair of Louboutin Greggo shoes.
Alex chose diamond stud earrings that they made at Canary Blue (where Piran designed her engagement ring and where they also made their our wedding rings together!)
A tiara by Ivory & Co that had enamel leaves and freshwater pearls which picked up the detailing of the diamantes and lace leaves on the dress.
For shoes Alex wore a pair of silver Dolce & Gabbana thong flat sandals that she ended up wearing every day on their honeymoon in Mykonos!
Favourite part of the day!
Both really loved every part of the day, but their first dance was really memorable.
"It had rained for our service (so we had it indoors instead of under the arbour as planned) so the staff suggested us doing our first dance outside instead. It was so lovely to just see all our guests dancing together on the lawn and we loved the photos!"
On the lead up to the wedding it can feel like you have so many jobs to do but we used to try and just tick off one or two tasks a week so it felt manageable. It meant that nothing was a stress and we got to do everything together.
When it comes to the day, it sounds silly but just try to take everything in. One of my bridesmaids had got married last year and she told me to remember that everyone is there to celebrate you. They don’t know what you have planned so if something doesn’t work out it doesn’t matter. The only person who will ever know is you so don’t stress!"
