Real Life: Outdoor April Wedding

Katrina & Curtis Italian/Cornish Wedding

19th & 20th April 2018 

“We wanted an exclusive peaceful countryside style venue where our guests could stay to make the day really last.

Food was really important to us too! The mixture of Cornish and Italian food styles suited us perfectly.

The outdoor arbour really swayed our decision though to have our ceremony which our florist decorated beautifully. We were so lucky and happy that we were able to have an outdoor wedding on such a beautiful sunny day!”

INSPIRATION & DETAILS

Delicate Details of Katrina’s Dress 

“We went for a rustic but elegant look with lots of Foliages The colours we chose included Greens, Corals, Peaches, Whites & Rose Gold. We also had Giant White Balloons with greenery garlands placed at the ends of the tables to add some fun to the occasion”.

Real Flower Hair Decoration

Katrina’s bridal bouquet. Bouquet was copied from a picture Katrina loved on Pinterest of ‘Juliet’ David Austin roses, coral ranunculus, peach stocks and pale peach roses to give a slightly messier shaped hand tied bouquet.

TOP TIPS

“Plan a little bit each day and have fun doing it! We used a budget planner spreadsheet so we would stay within our budget which was useful too. Being thoughtful is important, your guests will definitely appreciate this and it will make your day that little bit more special when you see how much fun everyone else is having too. A videographer is something I am so glad we decided to have too – we weren’t going to initially but it lets you relive your day and also captures all the moments you don’t see on the day. We loved ours!”

Congratulations to Katrina & Curtis from Team Trevenna
