Hannah and Tobias's elegant wedding at Trevenna

Sparks flew as soon as Hannah and Tobias first laid eyes on each other at college. “I knew he was special from the moment I met him and we just clicked straightaway,” she reflects.

After Tobias proposed beneath the Eiffel Tower and wedding planning began, the couple experienced another case of instant attraction when they came across Trevenna. “We viewed a lot of venues, and none of them compared to the magic we felt as soon as we visited Trevenna for the first time,” says Hannah. “We loved how naturally beautiful the entire venue and gardens were, and the staff were incredible from day one.”

Inspired by the natural beauty of the venue, the couple opted for a theme of “timeless elegance”, blending minimal styling and a palette of white and neutrals with the garden setting. “We wanted to look back on it all in decades to come and still love every detail,” explains Hannah. “My dream was to have a romantic, spring garden wedding, surrounded by lots of white flowers, timeless details and the picturesque countryside.”

The florals were key to the pared-back scene, and the clusters of white roses, orchids and hydrangeas “were the biggest and most beautiful flowers I have ever seen”, enthuses Hannah. Thoughtful touches were also woven throughout, including personalised welcome letters. “I wanted each guest to really feel the love we have for them from the moment they arrived at our wedding,” she says.

Carrying the aesthetic in dreamy style, Hannah’s dress was the fruition of a long-held dream. “I’ve always known exactly how I wanted my wedding dress to look, so it was an absolute dream come true to have it custom-made,” she says. Lovingly made by Bridget Scott, the gown was a stunning blend of delicate detailing, including hundreds of Swarovski crystals and pearls – which her mum painstakingly took from her own wedding dress and sewed on – and embroidered details including the wedding date, the pair’s initials and ‘written in the stars’ across the train.

The feast was another priority for the food and wine-loving couple. After a selection of canapés washed down with peach bellinis, guests feasted on smoked salmon, pan-fried sea bass fillet, slow-roasted beef, stem ginger poached pear and rich dark chocolate tart, which proved a highlight in a day full of cherished moments. “All of our loved ones were sat in front of us happily chatting and laughing together; it was in that moment Tobias and I looked at one another and we really soaked it all in,” says Hannah.

“Every minute was a magical and surreal dream come true,” she continues, reflecting on their celebrations. “It was the most love-filled, happiest and perfect three days of our entire lives.”

“Make sure you remember to stay present and enjoy every second, including the planning process and the build-up,” she advises other couples. “I did a meditation with my sister and parents on the morning of the wedding to help become completely present and in the moment. It was such a special memory and something I’m so happy we did.”
