Let's Stay Together

Molly and Maurice wildflower-filled summer wedding at Roscarrock

Having met via a dating app back in 2017, Maurice popped the question in a place close to Molly’s heart. “I proposed to Molly by the ponds in Richmond Park, as she grew up in Richmond as a child,” he says.

The couple chose the picture-perfect setting of St Micahels Church in Porthilly on Cornwall's north coast for their wedding ceremony, followed by a tipi reception at Roscarrock. Inspired by wildflowers, a host of vibrant floral details tied the summery scene together. Inside the church, multicoloured pew end displays, flower-filled urns and a floral arch made a captivating backdrop for the vows, while an array of blooms adorning the tabletops, and a tiered cake decorated with edible flowers brought gorgeous colour to the tipis.

The bridesmaids’ floral print gowns, flower girls’ floral crowns and printed sashes added to the petal pretty look, with the groom’s fern green three-piece suit and wildflower boutonniere the perfect accompaniments. Molly, meanwhile, accessorised her minimalist gown by Grace Loves Lace with pearl jewellery and an oversized colourful bouquet.

After their small ceremony, Molly and Maurice took a boat trip on the Camel Estuary with their beloved dog before joining their guests in the sun-drenched gardens of Roscarrock.
Here, the bloom-filled theme continued with an ambient al fresco drinks reception that featured cocktails topped with fresh flowers alongside canapés, champagne, an oyster bar, garden games and a jazz band on the lawn.

Dinner and speeches followed, with guests dining on the sumptuous likes of tuna tostada, wild mallard and white chocolate delice with rhubarb and crushed ginger biscuits. Produce from Cornwall and Devon featured heavily throughout the day and formed a focal point of the table stationery, from Helford Blue cheese and South Devon Chilli Farm sauces to Shepherd Shack sausage rolls and Camel Valley sparkling wine.

The newlyweds’ first dance to Al Green’s classic, Let’s Stay Together – “a song from our early dating!”, reminisces Molly – kickstarted the evening celebrations. The Sandy Acre 7 ensured the party was in full swing throughout the night, complete with a showstopping fireworks display over the water of Port Quin. "This was our favourite moment of the day," reflects Maurice. 

Guests continued to enjoy a series of culinary delights including cheese toasties, a cheese board and charcuterie as a DJ took to the decks and they partied into the early hours amongst Roscarrock’s myriad celebration spaces.

Looking back, Maurice’s advice underlines the importance of planning ahead and allowing as much lead-time as possible. “Start early!” he implores. “We run a business together, so time was at a premium; we started two years in advance to get a good start on it!”
