An elopement of 8, the most perfect of days. Never having been to The Stack in mid-Cornwall before, after a few turns down many a winding lane I lost all my bearings which made the final destination feel all the more special. In the secluded hamlet of Trelion with views over the Fal valley lies the most beautifully renovated engine house.
I was greeted by Joe, The eldest of 4 children who had just arrived after picking up his grandparents from their nearby B&B. I entered the building to such a calm and chilled atmosphere as Emma was busy putting on her makeup. Hair already done by the talented Hair by EmmaC. Rob pottering in the kitchen perfecting all the little details whilst Emma's parents, who only learnt the news about the wedding at Christmas, enjoyed the warmth of the wood burning stove. .
A 4pm intimate ceremony took place in the al fresco woodland grotto at the bottom of the garden. Warmed by the fire pit and lit with Emma's collection of jars filled with tea lights. An emotional exchange of vows with their closest loved ones made it the most perfect ceremony for them.
A quick play with some sparklers for the kids and then as the winter sun went down it was time to get back up to the warmth and some fizz whilst Craig from Duchy Chef prepared for a 3 course wedding breakfast. Fish and chips like you've never seen it, espresso marinated Lamb Rump and ice cream to follow, I wasn't there to see it but I'd imagine not just any ice cream!
Emma and Rob, thank you for having me...........
