Daisy Decor

Soo and Glyn Swift were married on August 22nd in the Seiners Arms Hotel in Perranporth, Cornwall, UK. As Soo wrote on TripAdvisor, "The hotel is lucky enough to be perfectly situated practically on Perranporth beach, and was the perfect location for our wedding. The staff was fantastic, extremely friendly and nothing was too much to ask."

To decrease the footprint of their wedding, the couple "decided to hold the ceremony and reception in the same venue, and organised car sharing in order to reduce fuel emissions. Our guests were kept informed via email of arrangements for the day."

Soo and Glyn are a very laid back couple. "On the day of the ceremony, we had beautiful sunshine and both Glyn and I enjoyed a surf in the morning."

Invitations The couple made their own invitations on recycled paper and decreased waste by asking their guests to RSVP via e-mail.

Rings Their rings were simple rose gold bands from an independent jeweler in Devon. "We had them inscribed with our names and the date by a local engraver."

Flowers Soo and Glyn merged the beach theme with white daisies to create a beautiful summer affair. "We decided to have a daisy theme running through the wedding."

They used ivory gerbera daisies from the local florist for all of the arrangements and Soo's bouquet.

"We used flower petals and locally collected shells to decorate the ceremony room, which over looked Perranporth beach."

Accessories Soo wore a daisy applique dress with a matching necklace and flip flops.

For the ceremony, she wore a daisy in her hair and Glyn used a single daily stem for his boutonnière.

Food Their guests enjoyed fresh ocean fare and local meat, "One of the Seiners most outstanding features is it's food, so I'd strongly recommend the Seiners barbeque buffet for anyone who wants a casual, sophisticated wedding.The wedding buffet consisted of barbequed localled caught fish and localled reared meat." After dinner guests enjoyed individual cakes.

Registry Soo and Glyn set up a registry of eco-frendly gifts, which I wrote about in June. Click here to read more!

And if you were wondering what the guests thought of the event - "All of our wedding guests said they had a fantastic time and we honoured to be a part of our day."
