The Unique & Enchanting Boconnoc

Written by Emma Hla
When Clare from Boconnoc told me about her idea for a styled shoot in their abandoned Georgian Bathhouse, I might have squealed…

At Coco we’re all about the pretty, unique and cool and I think this inspiration ticks every single one of those boxes.

This shoot was pulled together by Platinum Raspberry and the opulence of the Wedding Breakfast scene is just stunning. Think peachy autumnal tones, elegant drapes, sequins and chandeliers galore! I also love the secretive feel about this location, and the sneak peeks through the stone wall openings are just a little bit special.

Dive in folks…

Notes from Boconnoc

Clare from Boconnoc House & Estate: Rarely can a location be found that has endless space, corners and quirks for you to create more than you ever imagined for your wedding, from a one day subtle affair to a three day wedding festival extravaganza.

Boconnoc in South East Cornwall offers the opportunity to create your wedding in a number of enchanting locations. One being the 19th century Georgian Bathhouse, once an elaborate swimming pool for the guests staying in Boconnoc House. With a lion fountain at one end, it now lies empty with a camellia bush growing up the wall and is a magical space to create a truly original setting for a Humanist Ceremony or Wedding Breakfast.

Platinum Raspberry, the luxury event styling and design company, brought the space to life with their unique ideas, attention to detail and a can do attitude. Award winning photographer Khalile Siddiqui photographed the shoot and Christine Trewinnard designed the wedding dress.

The country estate of Boconnoc is tucked away down two miles of private driveways. All you hear when you arrive is birdsong and the river flowing in the valley. The main house, surrounded by sweeping park and woodland, seats 110 guests for a wedding breakfast, or 240 with an additional marquee. There is luxurious accommodation in the main house and surrounding cottages for up to 40 guests and beautiful gardens which can be dotted with yurts for additional guests.

Onsite there is a Church, a Civil Ceremony room and countless corners and spaces that can be used for your Humanist Ceremony or Wedding Breakfast. The flexibility at Boconnoc and the site being a blank canvas means the only limit is your imagination…
