Maritime Wedding Inspirations On The Coast Of England


It is the love for her homeland and its multi-faceted coastal areas that inspired Emma Hla of Coco Wedding Venues to create these diverse maritime wedding inspirations on the coast of England.

„I’m very much drawn to the rugged coastlines that we’re so fortunate to have in the UK.“ she raves. „Whether it’s the tall swaying grass of the dunes in Sussex, the dramatic cliffs of Dorset or the stretches of sand in Northumberland – I love them all.“

Based on the incredible selection of potential locations, her decision must have been imaginably difficult. And yet, in the end, everything happened so easily, it seems. „So when I discovered Clovelly Village in Devon with it’s own pebble beach and stunning quay vista I knew this would be the perfect place for a sea-inspired shoot.“

And because Clovelly Village has much more to offer, she selected the most spectacular sceneries and beautiful backdrops along with shoot manager Katrina Otter Weddings. „This enchanting village has a timeless quality with its cliffs, gardens, pretty Manor House and cobbled streets.“

A sensual and changeable bride, an overwhelming selection of bridal gowns and the elaborate floral decoration of Wild Spirit finally completed every scene in perfection.

The team has been particularly successful in bringing the maritime details of the sea into the historical manor house and thus into the interior of the country. With the watercolor-like stationery of Calligraphy for Weddings, pearl shimmering shells, an by the underwater world inspired cake, artfully knotted baskets and a variety of blue tones, the lush green and flowering garden became a maritime eye catcher.

With photographer Lucy Davenport, the two creative heads Emma and Katrina got

then another artist into the team, who knew exactly how to catch the countless little details just as well as the great whole on camera. Follow us now to see the incredible result!
