WE WANTED TO PUT OUR OWN STAMP ON OUR DAY…

“As soon as we got engaged we knew we wanted to have a wedding that allowed us to put our own stamp on our day. We wanted to create a celebration that was modern, considered and very much us.”

WE WANTED A UNIQUE DINING ADVENTURE!

“Food was important to us and we had been recommended Goose on the Loose by a friend, so we knew they could deliver a unique dining adventure. We also knew Mike who runs Gorilla Events so we knew the bar was sorted, and now it was just to find the venue!”

MY DRESS HAD OUR WEDDING DATE STITCHED INTO IT…

“Dan wore a Reiss navy suit jacket with a grey waistcoat, a crisp shirt and pale pink chinos. My dress was from Hermione de Paula and it had our wedding date stitched onto one cuff, our initials stitched onto the other cuff and then around the hem I had the lyrics from our first dance Coldplay’s – ‘Something Just Like This’. The colour was a very subtle pink, with beading and embroidery. My bridesmaids wore a beautiful chiffon caped wide leg jumpsuit in Zara and they looked amazing on the day!”

“We stumbled across Grove Barn after a lot of searching and driving the length and breadth of the country to look at various dry hire venues. We fell in love with the character of the building, the exposed bricks and the space! We had our ceremony at Bridgford Hall. Our service was fun and personable, and very much us, being able to write our own promises was a lovely touch.”

A RUSTIC YET MODERN WEDDING THEME…

“While wanting to keep things rustic to be in keeping with the barn, we also wanted to make sure it still looked modern and considered – from the table settings to the bridesmaids, to the flowers and the vows. Marble and copper created a loose them we had running through the wedding as our invitations were on marble paper.”

WE GOT CREATIVE WITH OUR WEDDING FLOWERS!

“When it comes to floral centrepieces, we knew we wanted tapas dining and we knew it would require lots of plates and this meant it would take up so much space on the table. Only one thing for it, the flowers needed to be suspended! We decided to suspend some copper plumbing pipes. Ivy and eucalyptus were twisted around each pole, along with sprayed viles housing cream flowers which were then further suspended from each pole.”

WE WANTED OUR GUESTS TO HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE…

“We wanted our guests to have a great experience, we were getting all the people we loved together in one room and this meant a lot to us. For our favours we wanted our guests to have something to take away with them to remember the day. We love succulents and thought these would act as great décor on the table settings too, the greyish green tones worked so well with the copper.”

“We had a video compiled by Alice Goulding, and it would be the best piece of advice I wold give to any couple, have a wedding video, we were blown away by ours!

All in all, we loved our day, we were very proud of what we pulled together and that everyone had a fantastic time.”
