When a bride says the magic words, “flowers are my favourite thing” you know it’s going to be a beautiful wedding. Combine them with a breathtaking coastal venue in Devon, an amazing cake designer and an inspired photographer, and you have the perfect recipe for a fabulous celebration.
Becci and Ben chose the Tunnels in ilfracombe because they both love the beach. So close to the town, yet completely hidden, Tunnels Beaches is a uniquely designed coastal wedding venue – accessed via a hand carved tunnel through the cliff.
In this beautiful setting, the couple exchanged their vows overlooking the dramatic North Devon coastline. with waves crashing onto the rocks below.
With flowers being so hugely important for Becci (former Deputy Editor of Wedding Ideas Magazine, it was wonderful for me to create a gorgeously oversized bouquet filled with seasonal spring flowers. “My bouquet was huge and wild” she recalls, with Coral Charm peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas and roses; all flowers with full ruffled petals, and in so many colours!”
I’m always surprised when couples say they don’t like cake! Becci and Ben however called on the amazing talents of Edible Essence to create a whole cake table of sweet treats, including lemon sponges and salted caramel.
Becci and Ben had originally planned an outdoor ceremony, but the tail end of storm Hannah had other ideas! This didn’t stop them however, making the most of such a dramatic day for their outdoor photos; and I’m so glad they did! The brilliantly talented Liberty Pearl Photography captured this windswept day with some of the most beautiful and heartfelt wedding images I’ve seen.
