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.
