Lady of the manor
weddings at colquite estate, bodmin
Colquite is a beautiful private family estate nestled between Bodmin and Wadebridge. Set within stunning woodland and lush green fields this place has a magical feel to it. What makes it interesting and different to anything else out there is the purpose built function space. Alexy one of the family members who runs the estate has a huge passion for classic and high performance sports cars. Last year he decided to transform one of the barns into a showroom for his vehicles. He created a light, elegant, quirky space with a contemporary finish and touches of retro styling. The cars on show are like pieces of art complimented by the vintage automobile paraphernalia on the walls. As well as being a great space to showcase his collection it also clears out completely to create a wonderful versatile space for weddings and functions.
Next door to the space is an another old barn that has been renovated to hold blessings, with open beams, reclaimed pews and a huge fireplace as a focal point. Collecting antiques, retro furniture and vintage decorative items is a passion for Alexy and this is shown in his interesting and creative interior styling.
The estate has plenty of space for parking, camping and even offers a shooting lodge and cottages that can potentially be rented out with the booking to give you beds for up to 20 guests. There is also space for marquees if that is something you personally request.
This really is a unique and beautiful venue which will certainly give your wedding the wow factor. I am proud to be the recommended planner for this venue and if you have any questions or queries about booking it for your event or wedding please do not hesitate to drop me an email. email@example.com
This photoshoot was to try and capture the fun, quirky elements of the estate and what it has to offer. The function space at this point was still being built but the photos still show the styling and decor that is available for you to hire. We ran with the automotive vintage theme to create this retro shoot that incorporates rustic country living with the glamour and elegance of classic cars.
