We are delighted to announce that on Friday the 2nd & Saturday the 3rd of September we will be holding our Claire Pettibone romantique Trunk show here at The Bridal House Of Cornwall where you bag 10% Discount Off any of these amazing Romantique dresses along with the full Gilded Age Couture Collection....keep your eye out for our next blog post that will showcase all of the amazing Couture dresses that will also be available to try on these dates.

"From the West Coach Beaches and the long windy drive along the Pacific Coast Highway to wine country and redwoods, it's  easy to see why the world is in a love affair with California creating this Romantique collection. I was inspired by the diversity of my hometown. The City of Angels attracts beautiful people from across the Globe, from every culture, searching for that inefabble dream. Growing up here was perhaps the perfect place for my own
dreamer's heart to find it's way.

Our City's Spanish roots are evident not only in the names of many towns and streets but in the rich tradition of Latina Culture so befitting  a beautiful bride. Embellished necklines, backs and sleeves convey a refined mood and the embroideries and scalloped laces impart a touch of celebrity glamour.

Incorporating another aspect of the LA vibe course I had to give our beach babes and bohemian spirits equal time with crocheted laces, sexy backs and sheer, re-carpet ready accents. Legs, backs and beach inspired details are perfect for a walk in the sand, or vows in a sun-dappled forest.

Sunset on the beach, care-free in the breeze of a vineyard or luxe lace mantilla style..take your pick, in California anything goes"

The same applies to our brides of Cornwall, with our Devine coastal and Country venues in the most picturesque & stunning your slot now to try on the whole collection to find your bohemian dream, be a vision of style on your big day and set the bar.

Malibu Gown

Inspired by a place where palm trees line the sun-filled shoreline, and unforgettable sunsets are the norm, this wedding gown is the epitome of boho beauty. With intricate cotton crochet lace in a graceful geometric pattern, an open low back, and a scalloped lace chapel train, our Malibu wedding gown produces a stunning, sun-dappled silhouette. Whether you’re a beach-bound bride or just looking to convey an “I just woke up like this” effortless vibe, this captivating dress is likely to leave all who see it smitten. Lined in crepe, this Ivory lace gown can be ordered with a Nude lining to bring out the detail of the crochet lace design, or in all Ivory for a classic look. 

Palisades Gown

Our Palisades wedding dress exudes relaxed glamour and beauty. Lavishly laden with organza flowers and sumptuous lace, this V-neck gown with a cathedral length train is as heart-stirring as a California sunset. And for a touch of opulence, a gorgeous silk ribbon sits at the waist. Simply stunning!

Santa Monica Gown & Cape

A stunning balance of simplicity and detail, our Santa Monica embroidered wedding dress is hard to resist. Graceful embroidery accented with ocean-mist sparkle, this sleek sheath features a scalloped bodice, and dainty lace straps topped off with a swoon-worthy heart shaped illusion back. The cathedral length train cascades behind like a gentle wave kissing a sandy shore and to take it to the next level, our stunning Monica tulle cape adorned with matching ivory cording, silver thread, and clear sequins adds the perfect blend of modesty and wow-factor. Spanish, Victorian, and maybe a dash of modern vintage style, collide in this sublime cape and dress combo.

Braids For Brides

We are seeing braids all over the place lately and we cannot get enough. They are beautiful and can be worn for any type of wedding, so we put together a little inspiration for those who adore these creations as much as we do.

The crown braid is effortlessly elegant. Fits into nearly any wedding style, it can be tight and neat or pulled with loose hanging curls to make it more rustic looking. Every girl loves a crown and places little flowers in between is something we absolutely adore for this bridal hair look.

Fishtail braids are a wonderful way to have your hair when you are wanting it out the way but still want to show the gorgeous length you have. Wonderful for country weddings and always looking magical from all angles. 

Side braids can also be a wonderful way to incorporate your flowers into. By simply pushing a few pulled flowers from your bouquet into it, it makes for wonderful photos and really brings a summer feel to your big day. Why not try a loose pulled braid, keeping the shape of the braid but keeping it loose with fly away hairs but create a beautiful look for those rustic country brides.

A lot of brides are going for hair down instead of up so show off their long locks but braiding front parts back and wrapping it around, with big loose waves makes for a glorious wedding hairstyle. This makes us dream of a more laid back perhaps beach wedding with flowing curls in the wind. Keeping your hair off your face as the breeze blows and making for romantic photos as the sun sets.

For those brides who love a big flowing ponytail, you can create a stunning hairstyle with braiding parts of your hair back into it. Fabulous for festival or boho weddings, not perfectly crafted but from any angle it looks dramatic and you'll always look back on your photos and think wow my hair looks fabulous. 

And to peak your bridal inspiration taste buds we gave a few ideas for the perfect wedding dresses to wear with your beautiful braids. Our beautiful detailed Claire Pettibone gowns, Prairie Rose and Wyoming. The floating elegance of Esme from Naomi Neoh and our newly landed Ophelia by JML that adds a bit of sparkle to your chilled vibe dress.

There are endless ideas when it comes to bridal hair but right now we are all about the chilled vibes of braids...which is your favourite?

Festival Wedding

We absolutely love festival vibes at a wedding. Live music, homemade decorations, flowers everywhere and everyone having the best time. As the sunshine gets brighter we felt now is the perfect time to inspire you with out festival wedding vision. 

Our Claire Pettibone dress, Georgia is our lady of the moment in our day dream with her delicate lace details and beautifully fitted shape it's perfect for the chilled out vibes and easy flowing music of the big day. Effortlessly fitting in with the bright colours around her and light as a feather she is the obvious choice for the bride of the day. 

Even though it's a chilled out atmosphere you can't say no to a beautiful sparkling, eye catching pair of shoes. Emmy Shoes are perfect for this theme and help us no matter what we prefer. For those who needs heels we chose our shoes to be out something blue with Eva. For those who want to dance until the sun comes back up, we chose Carine. A super cute pair of sparkly flats. And for those who want the height but also the comfort and not to sink into the ground, we selected Leila, the ivory wedge wonders! 

Festivals are always about bright colours, standing out and the odd quirky details. There can never be enough colour at a wedding, the bouquets are bright and blossoming, a back drop of flowers to say I do against and get that perfect wedding shot, and of course, the brightest cake that makes everyone smile and say wow! And for that memorable, stand out detail...why not welcome a Prosecco van to your day, keeping the bubbles flowing while you enjoy the sunshine and laugh with your loved ones.
