Real Life: Micro Wedding

Emily & Ben

3rd November 2020

Planned in a day, Emily & Ben’s micro wedding was full of joy and celebrations, as their wedding date was moved forward by 3 weeks before Lockdown 2.0 commenced.

Emily & Ben – could not wait to be married!

Emily & Ben’s kind words

“Em and I have been married for a week now and we wanted to take the opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone at Trevenna. I thought I would share a bit of my speech from the wedding”.

“…I can’t go without saying a monumental thank you to Jonathan, Mark, Matt and all the team here at Trevenna including the guys in the kitchen. You have well and truly gone above and beyond to make this day truly once in a lifetime. From the moment we got here in 2019, you made us feel so relaxed about the big day.

Just Married!

“The service you have provided has been astounding. You’ve persevered through about 4 different wedding plans for us and I can honestly say I genuinely don’t think you could have done anything more for us. To have all this ready with this incredible food at a day’s notice is unbelievable so I really can’t thank you all enough.”

“We both are so grateful for everyone’s support, you’ve always kept a calm head which has massively reassured Em and I while we have been trying to plan a wedding during an international pandemic, which I’m sure has not been an easy time for you either. On Saturday 31st October, when the news came out about the second lockdown and weddings not being allowed, we were both devastated after having waited for so long and being so close to being able to have our wedding go ahead on our originally planned date. We both assumed that we would not be able to get married until November 2021 but decided that we would at least try to see if we could get married before lockdown came into place. Em emailed Jonathan on Sunday and you responded within an hour which gave us hope that maybe we could actually pull this hastily rearranged wedding off”.

“When Jonathan explained that you guys could indeed do a date before lockdown and that he even may be able to give a local registrar a nudge, we were so happy. Then on Monday at 9:30am when Jonathan told us that he had spoken to the Registrar and they were available as well, we were literally jumping for joy!”


A few words from the Best Man 

Wedding Cake (!)

I still can’t believe that in less than 24 hours, the whole team at Trevenna was able to get set up for our wedding. The barns and the Marquee room looked stunning and were already decorated so beautifully (which we completely did not expect). Mark and Matt were extremely helpful and friendly, the kitchen staff produced some amazingly delicious food and everything was just as we wanted and needed it. You truly did go above and beyond for us, we cannot thank you enough as you made sure our day was still special even with all the difficulties that we had throughout 2020″
