Denise and Fletch wanted to create an Aussie-style beach wedding in Cornwall.

Denise Jinks married Martin Fletcher (known as Fletch) at Lusty Glaze Beach on 18th August, 2017 in a relaxed celebration with a boho vibe.

Beach life: Image 1aOur bouquets were more beautiful than we could ever have imagined and our florist also made the most stunning bridal floral crown.

Beach life: Image 1 We chose the Lusty Glaze cake of cheese that was delicious! We also had a surprise cake made for us given to us on the day by my (Denise's) sister and stepmother.

Our place settings had a running order of the day on one side and the lyrics from a Bob Dylan song on the other.

 

Beach life: Image 3aWe sourced ideas for our flowers from Pinterest and decided on simple single stems and foliage in jam jars surrounded by tea lights displayed on log slices for our centrepieces. We named our tables after beach bars and restaurants in Bondi Beach.

Beach life: Image 3 We wanted our bridesmaids to wear simple beach-style dresses that they could wear again in memory of our special day. We gave them the option of two different styles in the same blush pink shade while our flowergirls wore cute Monsoon dresses.

Our florist found a picture of a dreamcatcher backdrop and sent it to us. As soon as we saw it we knew it would be the perfect addition to our ceremony and we ended up getting married in front of it. We had so many compliments on it!

 

Beach life: Image 5aI knew I wanted a dress that wasn't formal or structured so opted for a stunning lace gown with a low back and detailed train. I wore it with the floral crown, nude sandals, pearl and rose gold anklets and fine rose gold jewellery.

We entertained our guests with an excellent live band called Ruby & The Rhythms who were recommended by a friend of a friend. We really wanted a female vocalist who could perform a mix of covers to make people dance. The dancefloor was packed all night and so many guests commented on how great the band sounded!

 

Beach life: Image 7aWe hired Lola, a cream VW van to really make an entrance!

Beach life: Image 7 I wanted to keep my outfit casual in line with our laid-back theme so I wore chinos, a white shirt, a bespoke linen jacket and a pair of shoes that came off almost immediately! – Fletch.
