The proposal

I proposed to Toni after being together for 5 years on leap year day in 2012 at home with a ‘will you marry me’ chocolate lollipop from choccywoccydoodah and cakes topped with haribo rings.

Where it all happened

We got ready in a cottage in Looe with our friends and then married at the underground lake at Carnglaze Caverns followed by the reception in the Rum store also at Carnglaze Caverns. We chose the location as it was unusual and allowed us to make it a day that really represented us and was a day our guests would always remember.

What they wore

I wore a Ronald Joyce PADOVA 66019 dress bought from something old something new in Reading, and Toni wore a dark grey suit bought in his home town Chemnitz, Germany.  Both wore hard hats that matched their outfits!

The theme

Our theme was a white and navy nautical theme with a bit of Game of Thrones and Labyrinth (my favourite TV show and film) snuck in there.

The flowers

Flowers were replaced with 500 candles and feathers and sequins galore!

The cake

We had a nautical cake created by Lucy at Sarahs cake shop in Looe. The top layer was red velvet and the bottom layer was a Victoria sponge.

What they ate and drank

Our buffet was provided by Hayloft Catering in Liskeard. None of our guests were from Cornwall so we treated them to Traditional Cornish foods like pasties, fish and chips and scones with clotted cream.

Photography

Our photographer was Colin from Macleod Paul Photography.

We went for a mini-moon in Salou for four nights the week after the wedding and we are saving to go on our honeymoon in 2017 a tour of Japan which our guests contributed towards as wedding gifts.

What was your favourite part of the day?

Finally seeing each other at the mouth of the cave ready to say our ‘I Will’s’ in front of our families and friends

What advice would you give to others?

Give yourself plenty of time! We booked our venue 12 months in advance so we had plenty of time to research our vendors and not get too stressed!

Anything else you’d like to add?

I would recommend marrying in Cornwall to anyone as no where else has such unique venues and beautiful surroundings.
