Bethan and Peter tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the leafy Boconnoc Estate in Cornwall. After choosing our hand painted collection Quartz Watercolour Wash, this awesome couple added their own personal touches with a soft shade of green and illustrated animals from the place they met - Peru. Read on as we chat to bride Bethan about their big day…

“Remember to have fun, it should be a fun experience planning your dream day.”

Do you have any tips for couples in the process of wedding planning?
Don’t get too bogged down with Fashionable  items or the current Fad, stick to classic designs and decor that you can look back on in in years to come. Also try and make it personal and include things that tell your story. Remember to have fun, it should be a fun experience planning your dream day.

There were many personal touches in your wedding decor including the illustrations we created for your table names of animals from Peru, what is your connection?
Pete and I actually met in Peru, we were both travelling on a G adventures tour and have been inseparable since. So Peru is a very important part of our story.
