Sophie and Oli were always going to celebrate their wedding at Pentillie Castle. The estate was inherited by Oli’s father after falling into disrepair. After six years of hard graft and renovation the castle and it’s grounds have reopened as one of Cornwall’s most beautiful places to get wed. Sophie chose an elegant colour palette of whites and just the green from some foliage for a bit of contrast. The style was rustic yet modern and Sophie’s relaxed, embellished Jenny Packham dress looked perfect again Oli’s detailed and distinguished military attire. There were lots of touches that added to the days’ relaxed and informal feel. The floral design was shared by both Oli and Sophie’s mum and sister, the cake complete with sugar work flowers was lovingly made by Sophie’s mum and Sophie had hand illustrated their stationery too.
This wedding has a special place in my heart. It was my first wedding back after having Bea and I cannot thank Sophie, Oli and their guests enough for being so kind and accommodating to me and my new family. We had a wonderful first weekend away and photographing their wedding was the cherry on top of a fantastic west country adventure.
