Perched on the edge of Marazion, where the land gives way to the sweeping beach and ancient causeway to St Michael’s Mount, The Godolphin boasts a truly breathtaking vantage point across one of the UK’s most awe-inspiring locations.
Here, the venue makes a dream canvas for a summer wedding, which celebrates the warm hues and relaxed mood of the season. Inspired by ripe summer fruits, the palette of peach, coral, pink, white and cream pops against the blue of the table linen and the ocean beyond.
It’s difficult to imagine a more romantic setting for a ceremony than the terrace, with its views across the historic castle and sandy beach. “We created a luxe, beach boho feel using rattan items and rustic lanterns: a dream for an intimate summer elopement on the Cornish coast,” explains Hazel Parsons of Out of the Ordinary Weddings who coordinated and styled the shoot.
The table styling sees cut crystal glassware and candlesticks nestling marble charger plates and linen napkins on edged white crockery, while fruits such as peaches, grapefruit, lemons, limes, apples and pomegranates enhance the summery mood. The stationery captures the laidback, contemporary aesthetic with its understated yet elegant design and relaxed calligraphy font. Completing the captivating picture, the cake and floral arrangements are a veritable burst of summer colour.
The bridal look strikes the perfect balance between timeless elegance and modern style, pairing a contemporary, textured gown with pearl earrings and bespoke sandcast rings, reflecting the shimmer of the ocean on a Cornish summer’s day.
