INSPIRATION - A Vibrant Travel-Inspired Wedding Editorial From Tide Flowers, Captured By Verity Westcott At GREEN UNION Venue Partner, Mount Pleasant Eco Park, Cornwall

17th July 2020


Today's gloriously colourful travel-inspired styled shoot was kindly submitted by eco-ethical florist, Cat of Tide Flowers. Many couples are inspired by their travels or honeymoon destinations when it comes to their wedding styling (my husband and I brought a little bit of Italy to Kent for ours!), and although actual travel won't be on the radar for a while, if you're yearning for the colours and patterns of distant lands you'll LOVE this!

With sustainability at the heart of every aspect, it's a true focal point for the local community and provides a flexible space for both indoor and outdoor weddings. I would describe it as a 'cool rustic' blank canvas. Beautiful reclaimed timbers against corrugated metal, the sunlight-filled open barn space, cosy fire pit, and of course the ceremony amphitheatre with views out to the sea. With on-site accommodation options for guests, ranging from wild camping to bell tents and a cute shepherd's hut it is a perfect site for a weekend of celebrations.

I wanted the styling to shine on this shoot rather than just fill the space with flowers. It was March, so local availability was limited however I used as much local produce as possible. This was mixed with a selection of Fairtrade imports, all of which are varieties that would be available as British grown throughout the year. The floral arrangements were designed to look a little untamed and natural to mirror the natural surroundings of the rugged North Cornwall - 'gathered' rather than structured and neat which is also in keeping with the venue vibe."

It has a wonderfully relaxed festival feel to it and was perfect to keep the overall look a little less formal. Red platforms were mine! Fresh-faced and natural look with a 'messy' and modern plait filled with flowers. Again, sticking to the cool/rustic look without feeling too neat and proper! The groom wore his own suit."

I was inspired by my travels in India and wanted to fill the spaces with colour and movement. Reminiscent of the markets with dyed fabrics hung out to dry in the sun, celebration garlands with thousands of fresh flowers strung together, floral patterns, mouth-watering street food and beautifully presented sweets and treats."

I chose to use indigo blue as a focal colour on the table to set off the bright flowers; with tea light holders shaped like lotus flowers and artichokes. Gold cutlery worked to contrast against the blues and greys to give a richness and warmer tone."

I think the images speak for themselves on this one.

The venue has an on-site vegetarian and vegan cafe who provided the food, which I felt was a perfect fit for the Indian street food that inspired me. They use a lot of produce grown on site as well!"
