The Venue: Their wedding day unfolded at the picturesque Watergate Bay Hotel in North Cornwall—a breathtaking location overlooking the stunning beach and adorned with stylish, modern décor.


Claire's Reflections on Their Day: "For me, the day started with the hustle and bustle of preparations, surrounded by bridesmaids, hairdresser, make-up artist, and photographer. Among the highlights was receiving a heartfelt gift box from my bridesmaid Chloe, containing cherished family heirlooms—a touching moment that added to the emotional richness of the day."

Mike's Pre-Wedding Moments: Mike's day commenced with breakfast at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, offering a moment of calm before the whirlwind of the day's events.

Memorable Details: The couple delighted in seeing their cake for the first time—a gift from the groom's parents, created by Choccywoccydoodah in Brighton. The day was filled with laughter, joy, and cherished memories.

Style & Décor: Their wedding theme, "seaside chic," perfectly complemented the coastal backdrop of Watergate Bay. Bright colours and rustic elements adorned the venue, creating a lively and festive atmosphere.

Claire's Bridal Ensemble: Claire's dress, handmade by Joanne Fleming, exuded timeless elegance with its tea-length silhouette. Her statement headpiece from Rachel Trevor Morgan added a touch of glamour, while vintage-inspired makeup by Sally Orchard enhanced her natural beauty.

The Perfect Shoes: Claire discovered Emmy Shoes through Facebook and instantly fell in love with the Cinderella Shoe—a perfect match for her wedding ensemble. Comfortable yet stylish, they accompanied her throughout the day, even enduring a stroll down to the beach for photographs.

 

A Lasting Memory: Claire's shoes garnered compliments from guests, adding an extra layer of charm to her ensemble. They remain a cherished keepsake, symbolizing the joy and beauty of their wedding day.
