Trerethem Farm is a family run working farm where you can feel the love in its soil. The breathtaking estuary views and panoramic rolling fields including a kitchen garden that supplies the top restaurants in Cornwall make the perfect setting for any wedding.

This countryside wedding venue is the perfect spot for a beautiful marquee and it’s no surprise to see South West faves Blue Fizz Tents & Events creating something beautiful here. At Blue Fizz they love creating bespoke events for their clients from marquee hire, planning, through to the final touches and styling.

Notes from Blue Fizz

Tracy & Bridget say…

Wild Tipi provided us with one of their fabulous structures complete with chesterfield sofas and 70’s lampshades for the break-out room, all part of their hire items. Tipi weddings provide great spaces to feast and dance the night away as well as visually giving your special day a strong identity.

The Buffalo Bar is an incredible Airstream that not only delivers the wow factor in looks but it also brings a dazzling array of bespoke cocktails and full bar to your event which is an experience your guests will love!

Our Blue Fizz Events traditional canvas and pole marquee nestled perfectly in the landscape with window walls to draw in the views and the perfect blank canvas to dress in any style. I created the archway by using wooden uprights (from Stargazey Hire) and draped muslin to provide a canopy as a centrepiece. I wanted to use geometric coppers, but to soften the hard lines we used different textures and foliage.

The aisle was dressed using a selection of potted plants all available from Fusspots. Hiring in shrubs, trees and flowers is proving to be a popular choice and has a sustainable angle to dressing any event. The structure and form that is achieved from the strong use of foliage works so well against a minimal palette as in this case.

The addition of the stunning flowers came courtesy of Caroline at Fleurtations Cornwall who produced several sprays of colourful blooms and a bouquet to give a contrast to the green and copper accents. The look was natural and bold with an eclectic array of stems, roses and greenery expertly combined to give the impact required. I created several large copper hoops with abstract geometric centres (which are part of our own Blue Fizz Events Hire range) and these were decorated with the flowers. These were hung in the marquee and as a backdrop to the ceremony. This is a really great way of decorating large spaces with a clean and minimal effect.

I also used one of the large hoops as a table plan. The stunning stationery was created by the talented Amy at Alphabet Meadow. I asked Amy to use copper and geometrics alongside foliage with a modern twist. In my brief to Amy I didn’t want everything squared off. Amy produced individual angles on each card and innovative 3D standing name cards in copper and off-white. Amy develops original designs that are unique to her clients bringing your ideas to life with an exciting personal style.

The cake was dreamy with tiny handmade macarons in coppers and pinks succulents. Lara at Lady Vale Bakery developed a striking geometric metallic design on the tiers of the cake perfectly in line with our theme with meticulous attention to detail. I created the copper cake stand utilising my love of up cycling which set of the cake perfectly and fitting in with our geometric accents. The cake table was hired from Star Gazey, alongside other accessories like the classic white bunting at the exterior of the marquee. They provide a wide selection of hire items that can be used to enhance your special day.

Total Event Hire provided long trestle tables which are perfect for shared feasting and an informal family style reception. Craftworks street food and pop up kitchen provided high-end street food using fresh ingredients from the farm and surrounding area – perfect for a relaxed social and memorable dining experience.

Our dashing groom Tom came with the addition of his very own magnificent beard! I teamed a formal classic grey waistcoat and suit trousers with a pink shirt, turquoise jacket and fluorescent pink braces. The menswear was selected from the extensive range at Samuel Daw & Co in Barnstaple. They have a large formal hire selection and an amazing array of unique suits and accessories to buy that offer you the mix and match options so on trend right now. Grooms and their groomsmen also get the best treatment in a purpose built room upstairs with sofas and fitting rooms where you can relax and have one-to-one consultation for your special day.

Our stunning model Sarah wore a bespoke dress handmade by myself, Bridget at Blue Fizz Events! Alongside my role as stylist for Blue Fizz I also design and make eco, boho and retro inspired wedding dresses for private clients. Using vintage and sustainable fabrics I wanted some metallic elements to the top of the dress with a pale gold crepe adding a geometric angle at the low back with directional straps. The crepe full skirt was simple and fluid with deep thigh high splits that created drama and a lot of leg on show as our bride moved.

Sarah’s make-up was all created by Amy Pike, the copper hues and romantic fusion was the perfect mix of elegance with an edge on our stunning bride. The hair by Laura at LJP Hair & Makeup was a relaxed chignon effortlessly beautiful and classic finished with a copper foliage headband placed at the back of the crown and intertwined with foliage.

I accessorized our bride with delicate handmade jewellery from the Wanderlust. They provided a selection of their geometric minimal delicate pieces in rose gold and gold that combined perfectly with the minimal lines of the dress.

Our team of suppliers have showcased their skills but also the collaboration and teamwork involved in delivering the best for any of their clients. All of this was captured by Yeti Photography whose ability to capture the light angles and mood of the day was extraordinary.
