Boconnoc House was chosen as the venue for the stunning photo shoot for The Bridal House of Cornwall which is featured on Wedding Sparrow this week.

The beautiful gowns were teamed with fabulous flowers by the Garden Gate Flower Company to create autumnal and wintery looks. The Drawing Room provided a simple and elegant background to showcase the dresses with the crisp white walls and delicate seasonal flowers helping to create a cool atmosphere.

In contrast, the Smoking Room with its deep red walls and roaring Victorian fireplace provided a warm setting matching the tone of the striking dresses.

20 Best Houses to spend New Year’s Eve in

As featured in The Times on Saturday November 26th  Boconnoc House was selected as one of the top 20 houses to spend New Year in. We could not agree more!

This is what Annabelle Thorpe had to say about Boconnoc in the Travel section:

“If the budget will stretch, Boconnoc — a gorgeous Georgian mansion house with every 21st-century comfort — guarantees an unforgettable new year. The house fans out from the stunning painted staircase, with a glorious firelit drawing room that’s big enough to play cricket in, three further lounges, a games room with table tennis, pool and a football table, and a library with a projector for cinema nights. The nine bedrooms are of a country house hotel standard and a chef can be arranged to make the most of the top-notch kitchen.”
