Lucinda and Adam met online. “I was attracted to his beard,” Lucinda tells us, “and I loved her legs!” Adam adds. The couple started dating and became engaged during a surprise proposal on the beach in St. Ives, Cornwall. “It was a wonderful moment and the weather was perfect,” Lucinda tells us. “Some members of the public nearby clapped and cheered us on which wasvery special!”

The couple decided to get married at The Minster Church of St. Andrew Plymouth and host their reception at the Treasury café, bar and restaurant next door. “The church is breathtaking and both venues are very centrally located which was perfect, especially for our older guests,” Lucinda tells us.

Bramwith white wedding car Lucinda and the bridal party arrived at the church in a classic Bramwith car. "I was so nervous and excited before our ceremony and couldn't wait to walk down the aisle! The church looked magical and everyone was beaming with happiness so we exchanged our vows surrounded by plenty of love and support. All of our guests sang the hymns enthusiastically with Hosanna being a highlight!"

Top table At the Treasury restaurant, Lucinda and Adam decided to have their top table placed along the back wall so that all of their guests faced them and the view of the church behind. "We gave our guests wildflower seeds from Marie Curie as favours with the sentiment of letting love grow," Lucinda explains. "We had laser-cut rose gold place names and tea lights placed in vintage-style gold, copper and rose gold holders and we displayed elegant tall vases trimmed with crystals and filled with white hydrangea, wisteria and eucalyptus on the tables. We also had a flower wall and a pretty rose and eucalyptus garland which our guests loved."

The couple chose a showstopping five-tier cake which took centre stage. “We combined fruit cake with a vanilla sponge layer and a chocolate sponge cake,” Lucinda says. “The dinner menu was delicious and we catered for our guests who were vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian.”

Lucinda wore an ivory wedding dress by St Patrick called Musset. “I tried on seven styles in total and this was the first one that I instantly fell in love with!” she tells us. “I loved the Bardot-inspired neckline, sleeves and the fact that it had pockets!”

Buttonhole Adam wore a navy suit with a pink tie and pocket handkerchief and his groomsman wore the same. "Our bridesmaids looked stunning in their Bardot-inspired full-length grey dresses," Lucinda says.

Wedding party outside church "We hired a band called The Harbour who was fantastic from start to finish," Lucinda tells us. "The crowd participation was amazing! Everyone in the venue was dancing, including the staff! The band performed an acoustic set while we ate which created a wonderful atmosphere."
