Boconnoc, near Lostwithiel in Cornwall is a classically elegant Georgian Estate with grand and perfectly proportioned rooms, historic architectural features, beautiful grounds and parkland – could there be a more elegant wedding setting?
      Like most clients, Anouska got in touch via our website contact form. As per usual covid-time communications, we got to know each other over zoom and phone calls and over the following year I built up a thorough understanding of her vision and desires for the styling of her wedding.
      We chose a muted palette of coffee and taupe tones with creams and whites and touches of peach and yellows, for this late April wedding. Apart from garden roses we used seasonal April tulips and ranunculus including the incredible British grown Hanoi ranunculus and pretty Liberstar tulips, however it was the delicate sweet rocket we’d grown from seed which set off all the designs with its pretty, sweet smelling, small white blooms.
      For the ceremony in the Dorothy Garden we made an untamed and whimsical free-form flower arch, with focal aisle decorations. In the main house, in the Drawing Room the classical alcoves were dressed with light and airy urns and in the Garden Room dining tables were centred with flower bowls and elegant pale tapered candles. Anouska and her team of girls carried bouquets with trails of soft silk ribbons which worked their magic in the light breeze and were captured still in time by Steph Newton.
