A BIG DAY BURSTING WITH PERSONAL DETAILS…

“Our wedding took place on the Mat’s family farm. We wanted a big day bursting with personal details that encapsulated what we both do while bringing our family and friends together. Although we didn’t have a traditional wedding theme, we were inspired by French Country Elegance and wanted lots of timeless details.”

HAY BALES, LAVENDER AND A MARQUEE…

“Our ceremony took place in an old barn that we decorated with hay bales, lavender in zinc buckets and a chandelier that was borrowed from Fran at Modern Heritage. Sophie Burkett conducted our humanist ceremony and we wrote our own vows, before moving to the marquee for welcome drinks and canapés.

Mat and I then went off to Cadwell Park Race Circuity, which the farm surrounds, for our photographs. After this, we joined our guests for more pictures and plenty of fun. To keep our guests entertained, we had garden games and space hopper racing horses, which everyone enjoyed before the breakfast and evening party. We also provided our guests with a homemade chalkboard photo-booth, goodie bags for the kids – who also got to ride in the farm vehicles. Our friend Baz is a festival DJ and did the music for us. A friend also helped us with fireworks and we had a lot of free booze for everyone to enjoy!”

MY GOWN WAS LOVINGLY REMADE…

“Every detail of our wedding day was created by Mat and myself, along with help from our family and friends. From the chopping board wedding favours to the cake table which we made out of wood found on the farm, to the taper candles on the tables and the cakes made by my friends.

My gown was lovingly remade by Kate Beaumont, using my Grandma’s wedding dress that she wore at her wedding in 1961. My bridesmaids and groomsmaid wore TFNC dresses, with the flower girls wearing gowns from Monsoon. The groom, groomsmen and bridesmaid wore suits by Jager and Marc Darcy.”

OUR GUESTS CAMPED ONSITE…

“Our canapés, table platters and Pie ‘n’ Mash were suppliers by PieMinister. Our table platters consisted of scotch eggs, giant crisps, honey glazed sausages and olives. Guests pre-ordered their wedding breakfast pies which included Deer Stalker, Moo, Heidi, Free Ranger and Mexicow. PieMinister also cater for all dietary requirements so everyone got a pie! For our evening food, we spoiled our guests with pizzas from Hidden Gem Pizzas, who stayed over and served bacon butties to all of our guests who camped onsite – around 70!”
