A Day at Boconnoc
Last summer, we were invited to collaborate on a beautiful wedding shoot at The Boconnoc Estate. Bringing together bespoke artisans and wedding suppliers from Cornwall and Devon, the backdrop of Boconnoc House and its incredibly romantic Dorothy Garden provided a stunning setting.
We spent the whole day in Dorothy Garden, named after Dorothy Fortescue who lived at the estate from the late 1800s until the early 1900s. With a vision to evoke that period, everything featured in the shoot – from the vintage lace wedding dress to the edible petal wedding cake – shared an antique aesthetic and natural palette. This glorious wild garden is quintessentially English and totally unspoilt – it certainly takes you back in time. The smell of roses and blossom was in the air, the summer sun casting a golden glow while everyone bustled around prepping the shots.
In our selection of bridal jewellery we focused on the romantic Victoriana theme - selecting rose cut diamonds, rose gold and seaweed-inspired, delicate engagement rings set with sparkling white diamonds. Harriet modelled our Pebble Drawing Necklace in rose gold, the Bright White Alaria Ring in 18ct yellow gold and the Rock Skinny Wedding Band, also in 18ct gold while Emily's Rock Wide Band was perfect for the groom with its stone-tumbled, sea-worn finish.
Each detail of the shoot was provided by local artisan suppliers; the dress and suit, hair and makeup, stationery and table linen, cakes and flowers – even the drinks! They were all the perfect fit for the shoot, too, because they all shared an organic, timeless style. It was such a fun, special day, and the final results were beautiful – we loved being part of it!
Thank you to Boconnoc Estate for inviting us and the very talented Debs Alexander for her fabulous photographs. You can see more information about the day and each of the suppliers on the Rock My Wedding blog.
