ADAm AnD DAnIEL
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
