Alisha and Gavin's rustic-inspired day followed a seasonal burgundy, gold and blush pink colour theme

Alisha and Gavin met while they were both training to become karate instructors. "I was attracted to Gavin's kind nature and loved every moment that I spent in his company," Alisha tells us. "I liked how Alisha was so gentle," Gavin says, "and as I got to know her, I thought she was one of the kindest people that I had ever met."

The couple became engaged during a weekend away. "We were staying in a wooden cabin at a resort in Lanivet, Cornwall, and Gavin decorated it with red heart-shaped balloons which was a nod to one of my favourite songs, Red, by Catfish and the Bottlemen," Alisha tells us. "He also scattered roses on the bed and proposed with a ring that was engraved with the words marry me. It was a wonderful surprise."

Here, the couple tell us more about their rustic-inspired day with a burgundy, blush pink and gold colour theme.

Rustic love: Image 1 We loved the warm and inviting feel that the Knightor Winery offered. The grounds were so pretty and the manor house that we stayed in was beautiful.

Rustic love: Image 2 We placed moss, pine cones, tea lights and hanging hearts in the windows that looked so pretty and one window featured a gold deer.

We had a disco for the evening reception that was lots of fun!

The chairs were decorated with burgundy and blush bows and we hung paper pompoms from the ceiling accompanied by fairylights.

Rustic love: Image 4 We both took a moment out of the day and enjoyed a ride to Charles town in our hired vintage car. We decided not to have our photographer with us at this point, we just wanted to be alone together and soak up the fact that we had just become husband and wife.

We had a flower curtain placed behind the signing of the register table. This was also decorated with a small urn of flowers and G&A wire letters.

Gavin looked so handsome in his tweed suit teamed with a pocket watch and brown shoes. Our groomsmen chose their own grey suits and we gave them matching burgundy knitted ties, pocket squares and buttonholes to wear.

My dress was the style Cordelia by Maggie Sottero. I loved the lace detail, the sleeves, the low back and the fact it had pockets. I teamed it with a gold tiara and carried a cluster of blue celestite crystals in the pocket of my wedding dress as my something blue.

Rustic love: Image 9 Our guests loved our pizza van serving wood-fired pizzas.

Rustic love: Image 10 Our bridesmaids wore blush pink dresses and my maid-of-honour wore a burgundy gown. They each held a matching ivory pashmina and our pageboy wore a burgundy suit with a tweed hat.
