Trevenna wedding

Never underestimate how much I love sharing your real weddings.


I know how special and intimate your wedding day is, the work that you’ve put into bringing it all together, the symbolism of joining together with your partner under the loving gaze of your nearest and dearest, and the pure, bursting feeling of joy.


When I read your wedding questionnaire it’s not just dumped blindly in a post. I read every word and immerse myself in your day. It brings back memories of my own wedding, my sister and best friend’s weddings, my cousin’s recent wedding – and with it that surge of happiness, and sometimes a lurch of sadness too.


Helen and Mike’s wedding is just beautiful, but it did make me cry. The guest so evidently missing from their day left a hole even I could feel. The gravity of having an important person not there for your wedding day is just too big to comprehend, it makes my heart break.  But from that I also got the immense love and happiness which was palpable even from images. And for me, that’s what this is all about.


I don’t just ‘blog weddings’. This isn’t just a copy and paste job. I handle every single wedding with care, knowing that each one is a couple’s love story. Their journey so far, together in life. I wish Helen and Mike, and every couple I have the honour of featuring, the happiest of futures together. Through the happy times and sad, know that you have one another.


Now over to photographer Tracey Warbey with a little bit about Helen and Mike’s gorgeous day at the Trevenna…




A Military Wedding at Trevenna Barns

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Helen and Mike’s wedding day at one of my favourite venues in Cornwall,  Trevenna Barns.

Due to some heavy and persistent showers, the couple’s planned outdoor ceremony in the venue’s Oak Arbour was moved indoors to the Garden Room, which was beautifully decorated to match the wedding colour scheme of ivory, cream and green.

Helen wore an elegant, sleek wedding dress from Sam Cox Bridal, with dusky blue suede sling-back heels to match the colours in her bouquet.

She opted for pastel shades for her wedding flowers, which were provided by St Mellion Flowers and consisted of roses, stocks, and blue thistle, tied with hessian and a pastel blue ribbon. 

Fastened to the bouquet was a small photo of Helen’s father, who had sadly passed away.

A larger frame also containing a picture of her father, was seated next to her mother in the Garden Room for the ceremony. Helen wanted to ensure that he was with them all on their very special day.

Helen’s three bridesmaids all wore dusky silver/light grey chiffon dresses with simple bouquets consisting of a single rose with eucalyptus.

Her three flower girls wore flower crowns and wrist corsages, which were in keeping with the bridesmaid’s flowers.

Mike looked well-dressed in full military uniform, complete with sword and the couple enjoyed a walk underneath an arch of steel, which was provided by fellow servicemen and women following the ceremony.
