Wedding styling: modern brights at Kilminorth
Bold and beautiful bright wedding inspiration at this stunning south coast venue
A sprawling 32-acre country estate set in a hidden valley on Cornwall’s south coast, Kilminorth is a veritable wedding village, marrying rolling countryside with a cluster of beautifully restored Cornish cottages. The perfect setting for an extended celebration with all the special people in your lives, the cottages accommodate up to 63 people and offer a blend of original features, modern, open-plan layouts and luxe touches alongside hot tubs, a tennis court and outdoor swimming pool. Complete with an orchard, wild meadows, majestic woodland and beautifully landscaped gardens to roam, it’s an idyllic and gorgeously secluded setting to create the celebration of your wildest dreams.
From elopements to intimate gatherings and weekend extravaganzas, the venue specialises in customising events for each couple, offering the flexibility to pour as much personality into your day as you wish. Utter your vows al fresco to the sound of birdsong in the paddock on the hillside or cosy up in one of the cottages for a ceremony full of ambience. Throw your dream wedding feast in the stunningly styled marquee hugged by trees or tuck into a gourmet dinner with just your nearest and dearest in one of the cottages. Whether you envision fireworks and dancing barefoot beneath the stars or long, lazy brunches and cocktails by the pool, you can look forward to a wow-worthy celebration in this scenic spot.
And when it comes to the style of your celebration, Kilminorth can make your imagination a stunning reality. The venue provides a beautiful backdrop for a scene designed to pique the senses with detail, texture and colour in this contemporary styled shoot. Modern touches such as a neon sign complement floristry in vibrant shades spliced with earthy oranges, bold blues and eye-catching yellows. The table is styled with colourful blooms and greenery, tapered candles in clear glass votives, and luxe gold charger plates oozing modern rustic glamour. The cake blends clean minimalism with colour via fresh bright blooms, while the mood lighting is kept low via floor lanterns and candlelight. For the dress code, a classic tux and strapless silk shift epitomise timeless sophistication, while curly locks adorned with a few pearls and coastal inspired jewellery complete the oh-so romantic look.
