A weddingbat Boconnoc House Bonnie and Jim

I have a confession to make. It’s been a long time since I have blogged. Now that feels better. It feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Blogging is hard, but I am sitting with a cup of a coffee while a storm rages outside. So here goes. First up is Bonnie and Jim and their wedding at Boconnoc House. I’ve blogged about wedding at Boconnoc House before. But then I honestly love the place, so it feels like it is only right that I do it again and in the case off Bonnie and Jim, this wedding is really worth sharing. Why? Because it just felt sublime.

Bonnie and Jim took control of shaping the day exactly how they wanted it to be. A wedding at Boconnoc House provide an amazing backdrop. The house is a wonderful location and the landscape that surrounds it is just beautiful. But Bonnie and Jim created a riot of colour and texture that just added to what was set to be an amazing day. Texture is a good word to describe the feel of the day. As Bonnie is a fabulous textile designer. Using her skills to complement her incredible dress from Jesus Piero and Jim’s suit from Beggars Run was just the perfect.

Hair and makeup were expertly crafted by Ro Hair and Tamsyn Siddiqui. Meanwhile the groom and the groomsmen got ready up at the old stable. The sunken Bath House provided the setting for the wedding ceremony. The warmth of the sun on the day was a real blessing. The sunken Bath House is one of the things that really adds to the feel of a wedding at Boconnoc House. Not everyone use its – there are so many choices of places to get married at Boconnoc. But it is unique and an incredible location.

Confetti was followed by drinks on the lawn and then speeches (or phase one of speeches). With the wedding breakfast served by the aptly named Wood Fired Canteen, the time was set for more speeches followed by an incredible cake by Frances Quinn (winner of the Great Britain Bake Off). This was food heaven.

Bonnie, Jim and I managed to slip away a couple of times during the day for photos. We wanted the best of the light and we found it both times. Starting at the front of the house, we walked over to the Dorothy Gardens (I really need to ask why they are called this). The woods at Boconnoc House are  one of my favourite locations and we caught the last of the light there.

As always the day just flew by and we were into the first dance. Jim’s change into a pair of matching suit shorts was a perfect antipodean touch. Finally, sparklers topped off what was an absolutely stunning wedding day.

There you go. I did it! I managed to blog. I’m going to try and do this again tomorrow. Fingers crossed 🙂

Enjoy.
