Romantic rainy Cornish wedding shoot with rustic and vintage styling in the grounds of a cutting garden
Charlie / 21 March 2016
I have literally poured over this shoot for hours in a bid to narrow down the beautiful images – there are just too many that I wanted to share. This romantic rainy Cornish wedding shoot features a real couple, a vintage bike, spring florals, and a stunningly decorated ceremony arch.
More and more I’m seeing inspiration shoots that use real couples, and I think it is so refreshing. Just like the fairytale woodland shoot we recently featured, that also featured a real-life couple, the images today just ooze with love and genuine warmth and fun. That’s what I want to see from an inspirational wedding shoot. I want to be inspired by that authenticity against a backdrop of gorgeous and interesting props and styling. I have a feeling that’s what you would like to see as well.
Having spent many of many childhood holidays in Devon and Cornwall, this shoot captures everything I associate with this magical area on a wet rainy day – the damp vibrant moss, the moody greys, and splashes of colour, a palette taken straight from the towering hedgerows of these counties.
So it’s with a huge thank you to the lovely Gemma from Box and Cox Vintage Hire down in Cornwall that I get to share all this loveliness with you. She styled the shoot and showcased some of her collection of vintage hire items, including their new wooden arch which was so spectacularly dressed. The location was The Cornish Cutting Garden and they also created the stunning florals. Over to Gemma to tell you more…

Sometimes I wished Nick and I had eloped and got married just the two of us. If we had, I’d like to have done it like this couple did. Simply, beautifully, and reflecting the natural environment. Or I might have dreamt I was brave enough to wear blue like this elopement.
It feels quite strange to remember that I’m married now and don’t have these decisions to make anymore. We made our choices, had our day, and we’re married. It was truly lovely, but I can’t help feeling a bit odd that I’m no longer able to dream of what my wedding day might be like.
A round-up of seasonal summer wedding flowers – including a floral dog collar of cornflowers and mint
Charlie / 7 June 2011
I thought it might be nice to do a round-up of what some of the lovely businesses listed on the directory have been up to recently. So I’ve had a snoop round their blogs and decided I would feature some seasonal flower photos, for the following reasons:
- I just can’t get enough of English flowers at the moment (probably spurred on by the buckets of gorgeous flowers I had to arrange for my wedding)
- They are always such a positive and beautiful reflection of our seasonal countryside
Charlie Ryrie from The Cut Flower Garden has been creating floral wonders such as this stunning globe of flowers for a wedding recently…
And arranging flowers for this wedding in vintage style jugs and jam jars…
Jo and Rachel over at Green and Gorgeous created this stunning (and pretty fabulous, don’t you think!) summer collar for one of their dogs.
It’s made from blue cornflowers and apple mint – I think this could be the new must-have item for anyone incorporating their dog into their wedding…
