ADAm AnD DAnIEL A fter becoming friends online, Adam and Daniel met two months later on the platform of Truro railway station, amid the frantic scurry of commuters. Six months later, in the same spot (but in pouring rain!) Adam popped the question. Once their engagement had sunk in, they began planning – firstly with a trip to a local wedding show, where they met Laura Coleman, wedding coordinator at Holne Park House. A visit to the venue for tea, cake and a guided tour made their vision come alive. ‘When we drove down the tree lined road, the house appeared and was so stunningly beautiful that I knew instantly that this was going to be our wedding venue,’ says Daniel. With the backdrop in place, the couple began discussing how to combine their individual styles: ‘Adam is more tradi tion - al, whereas I’m a little more bohemian,’ he says. ‘We wanted to merge the two together in a way that was personal to us.’ The couple decorated the ceremony room with crystals, floral bunting and chair covers. Their centre circle was created using stunning amethyst and sodalite crystals – the purple and blue representing the colour theme of their wedding. They chose to have a wishing tree instead of flowers, with guests pinning their well-wishes and votive offerings. Before the ceremony took place, the atmosphere was set with a mixture of Celtic music from Enya, the Corrs and Clannad. The rhythmic beat of Bodhran drums played as the couple walked down the aisle, with Daniel holding the hand of their six-year-old son Rheuben, who had the very important role of best man. Daniel wore a purple velvet jacket with a white shirt underneath and purple harem pants with leather flip flops. Adam wore traditional attire – navy blue trousers, a waistcoat, white shirt and brown leather brogues. They were followed down the aisle by flower girls in floral dresses and pink weddings magazine » 71
