When your private ranch in Texas is this beautiful, you need to get married outdoors!…
This is one of the prettiest festival weddings we’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something. (On a side note, I don’t think I’ve ever chosen this many photos for a blog post before; I couldn’t stop myself and I didn’t want to lol.) Lynsey and Dirk love to sail, hence the sailing theme for their decor. In fact, Lynsey styled and made all of the lovely props, escort boats, and centerpieces herself – impressive stuff.
According to their wedding photographer, Emma Stoner, the venue, Roscarrock Manor Farm, inspired Graham Norton’s “Poldark” books. And we can see why he was inspired: Roscarrock boasts stunning scenery of Port Quin to the left and Port Isaac to the right, with the ocean stretching all around. The couple started off their sunny day with a handfasting ceremony (an ancient Celtic ritual in which their hands are bound together to symbolize the binding together of two lives) under a 24′ x 44′ Sperry Tent, with a 16′ Sperry Arch covering the flower arch. Then, everyone retreated to the garden for a seated reception under a 46′ x 66′ with a partnering 24′ Round lounge tent.
Every detail of this wedding was highly personalized. Guests were invited to decorate the ceremony arch with colorful flowers, and then later lined up for a confetti tunnel. There were lawn games and kid games, hoola hoops and costumes, lots of music and dancing – and plenty of tea and Prosecco. The couple stole away for an intimate photo shoot on the beach at Port Quin, and then everyone enjoyed a gorgeous sunset together, followed by more dancing and fire spinning. All in all, this June wedding was colorful, fun, relaxed, and joyful.
