Cornwall Wedding Photography at Trevenna Barns – Caz and Joe’s Relaxed Rustic Outdoors Celebration

I’ve photographed 3 of Joe’s siblings weddings, so when I got an email with the subject ‘Another Smale Wedding… (you must be sick of us)’, I was just over the moon to be involved in another of their special days and absolutely not sick of them!

Caz and Joe really wanted a relaxed, down-to-earth wedding that was just about celebrating with the people they love and having fun! They chose Trevenna because it allowed them to enjoy the beautiful Cornish scenery for the whole weekend. They had 40 guests stay on Friday and Saturday, so they spend time together outside of the wedding too.

They tried to make choices that were true to them, which generally meant things with a slightly rustic/vintage twist, and natural/sustainable things to reduce waste and make the most of nature! Caz used original 1920s Kilner jars for table flowers, her Mum upcyled an old ladder for the table plan, they had wooden lawn games, Joe’s brothers cut down a tree for log rings, and they made the sloe gin from hand picked sloes. Even Joe’s wedding ring was an eco wooden one made from whiskey barrel oak!

Caz got her Cymbeline Paris wedding dress from Browns of Totnes, and her veil, sash and alterations were by Nortier Shallow. The beautiful blush pink bridesmaids dresses are Haven by Wed2Be.

The ceremony was interrupted by a very brief shower of rain! Everyone started to dash inside, but as quickly as it started, it stopped. After a bit of drying off and wiping the chairs down, the ceremony resumed!

The cake was made by Joe’s amazing mum, Tracey! By this point, I’ve eaten 4 wedding cakes made by her and they are THE BEST. Joe’s sister in law, Danielle, made this lovely origami wishing tree!

On the Monday, Caz and Joe had a church blessing at St Petrox Church, Dartmouth, with food and drinks afterwards at The Royal Castle Hotel. They reused all the flowers from Saturday which still looked beautiful! Joe’s mother Tracey surprised everyone in the church by singing the most beautiful solo. There was not a dry eye in the church.
