Luke and Lauren’s wedding was a perfect mid week wedding, and we are delighted it was featured in Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. Here’s what they said about working with us:
“Tredudwell Manor in Fowey was the perfect place to hold our wedding. It was a beautiful blank canvas with so much charm, which made it easy to bring our vision to life. Being set up for both outdoor and indoor ceremonies meant that when the rain clouds appeared at the last minute, it was no problem for the ceremony to be relocated inside the venue, with the doors thrown open so we were able to keep the feeling of still being outdoors.” Luke and Lauren
Thank you so much for choosing us!
