21 Aug Intimate Outdoor Wedding in Cornwall / Boswarthen Farm / Jess + Andy
An Intimate Outdoor Wedding In An Ancient Celtic Cornish Church…
Imagine having an intimate outdoor wedding with a handful of guests in an ancient chapel at the heart of West Cornwall. That’s exactly what Jess and Andy choose to do at Madron Well. A site of historic importance and mystical beauty that lies deep in woodlands of Boswarthen Farm near Penzance in Cornwall.
The ancient site lies within the grounds of of Boswarthen Farm (just outside Penzance). Jess and Andy along with their guests took advantage of the safari tents on site for the weekend of their wedding.
Jess looked beautiful in here tunic dress which complimented her baby bump perfectly. Her natural looking make-up was applied by Natasha Flower. Jess’ boho look was perfected by a beautifully handcrafted silver crown by Tegen Jewellery which sat perfectly amongst her curls.
A Vintage Tractor…
Andy’s pride and joy – a vintage Allis-Chalmers tractor was the mode of transport for the couple and their guests. Kitted with hay bales for seating atop a trailer. The guests were treated to a charming (and bumpy) short ride down the farm track to the entrance of the woodlands.
From there Jess and Andy’s guests went ahead. We waited a minute or two and then took a gentle stroll down the wild path stopping for the odd photo along the way.
An Ancient Well With Healing Powers…
On the journey we passed Madron Well which is revered to have magical healing powers. The ribbons hanging in the tree are part of a ritual said to heal the ill. The sufferer would hang (torn from their clothing) to help them heal. It is said that as the cloth deteriorates the sufferer’s pain would improve!
A Humanist Ceremony…
Jess and Andy wanted to have an intimate outdoor wedding with their own twist so a humanist ceremony was perfect for them. They toasted their commitment with Prosecco and homemade cordial before heading back to the tractor with their guests.
…And Afternoon Tea!
Back at the campsite one of Boswarthen Farm’s barns was decorated with bunting for a delightful afternoon tea.
I Love Intimate Outdoor Weddings!
I loved capturing Jess and Andy’s intimate outdoor wedding. They didn’t want a fussy wedding, instead they wanted a personal and unique wedding just like the two of them. It was so relaxed and I was over the moon to document it all like a fly on the wall.
