Claire and Daniel created a relaxed day with live bands in a stunning setting.

Claire Dower, 36, married Daniel Sylvester, 43, on 22nd July, 2017 at St Stythians Church followed by a marquee reception at Restronguet Barton on the Fal Estuary in Cornwall.

I made all of our female guests their very own wine glass from old Corona bottles and set up a Pimp my Prosecco stand, which went down a storm!


Wedfest: Image 2aWe had lots of pastel flowers to decorate our day including blush pink roses, sweet pea, gypsophila and eucalyptus.

Wedfest: Image 2 We decorated our tables with lace hessian runners, tall olive trees placed on large wooden slabs and decorated jam jars, flowers and candles.

Dan made our beautiful cupcake stand from wooden slabs and branches from the local woods.


Wedfest: Image 4aWe chose beautifully decorated cupcakes which our guests could eat at their leisure or take home.

Wedfest: Image 4 We upcycled an old piece of furniture to become our Pimp my Prosecco bar.

We had a large stage and PA system for all the bands that we booked to play all day and during the evening.


Wedfest: Image 6aOur sweetie table looked really effective and was a hit with the little ones.

Wedfest: Image 6 Our top table was a collection of white leather sofas placed at the opening of the marquee to create a VIP area that was reserved for the bridal party only.

The groomsmen all wore grey suits with pale waistcoats, brown shoes and beige ties, which complemented Daniel's ivory tie.


Wedfest: Image 8aWe had a signpost directing our guests to the different areas that made up our day.

Wedfest: Image 8 We had lots of details including pretty birdcages filled with flowers.

My older bridesmaids were allowed to pick their own dresses and all fell in love with the same sleeveless style with high necks. I bought these in two different colours – beige and lavender.


Wedfest: Image 10aMy dress was by Demetrios. It was a stunning sleeveless lace gown with a deep V-neck, low back and detachable sweeping train.

Wedfest: Image 10 My bouquet was a small teardrop shape with white and pink blush roses mixed with a hint of purple. It held a picture of my late mum who passed away three years ago.

Daniel organised the men's outfits. He wanted something fitted so opted for a tailored suit so he could remove the jacket in the evening, roll up his sleeves and relax!
