If there’s one thing we love more than a wedding itself, it’s meeting all the wonderful people involved, especially the bride and groom. In May 2016, we were delighted to host the wedding of Gemma and Dan, a lovely couple from London. With Gemma’s parents living in Callington, we were honoured to host the perfect Cornish wedding especially for them here at Ta Mill.
Their special day started with a traditional church ceremony with a breathtaking gospel choir, joined by close friends and family. Gemma wore a stunning white Pronovias gown, which showed off her beautiful figure and her bridesmaids adorned sophisticated and elegant grey lace dresses.
The newly wed couple and their guests returned to Ta Mill, where they had a large personalised marquee created for them by the wonderfully talented team at Absolute Canvas.
Gemma and Dan brought some of their London lifestyle to Cornwall by having London Underground tickets and maps as table markers.
We at Ta Mill added our own touch by including straw bales outside in order for everyone to enjoy the mild weather and the beautiful countryside.
Photographer, Dan Ward, took full advantage of the mature gardens and dramatic trees found within Ta Mill’s ground to take some truly beautiful shots of the happy couple.
In the evening, band “Decade” played in the marquee, starting with “Marry you” by Bruno Mars as the happy couple’s first dance. Canapés were served in the sunny courtyard area and a hog roast was wheeled into the marquee for guests to enjoy with a wonderful array of salads. The fabulous wedding breakfast was then finished off with scrumptious strawberry, cream and brownies for dessert, all brilliantly catered for by Piglet cottage.
60 of Gemma & Dan’s 130 guests decided to stay 2 nights with us and made full use of the pitch n putt, swim spa and hot tub during their stay. We love seeing our facilities being used by family and friends making memories in a fun and carefree atmosphere.
It was a privilege to meet Gemma, Dan, their family and friends and it was one of the most beautiful weddings we have seen. We were so lucky to have been the ones to host it in our stunning, exclusive hire, Cornish wedding venue. Find out more about Weddings at Ta Mill here.
