A RELAXED, COUNTRYSIDE WEDDING ON THE FAMILY FARM...

“We live in the Seychelles teaching on a small island on Praslin, but wanted to get married back at home with all our friends and family. We had a gloriously sunny, relaxed, countryside wedding on the family farm. We knew we wanted our guests to have a fantastic time and to have a fuss-free, fun wedding surrounded by the people we love most.”

BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL COWS...

“The starting point for our planning was with our wedding stationery. This was designed by my fabulously talented best friend, Alexandra Danielle Mannion. We told her we wanted to combine our tropical home in The Seychelles with my parent’s dairy farm where the wedding would take place, so she designed a series of beautiful tropical cows which we fell in love with straight away and she created dreamy bespoke wedding stationery from that!”

WE DECORATED THE GARDEN WITH FESTOON LIGHTING...

“My parents had organised a surprise vintage tractor and trailer to take us to the church which was amazing. We hired a traditional marquee and mismatched chairs and trestle tables, which we knew we wanted as rustic and paired back as possible. We decorated the garden with festoon lighting we bought which my Dad rigged up as an outside maypole – it was spectacular at night! I had collected tourist maps of Praslin to wrap bread rolls and had gathered pretty shells from our local beach in the Seychelles to give as favours.”

LOOSE ROMANTIC BOUQUETS & GREENERY CROWNS...

“David’s aunty is an amazing florist (Jill Duerden) and his sister runs an awesome landscape gardeners (Humble Bee Gardeners) who grows beautiful plants. We just gave them the brief of loose and natural flowers, neutral for the church and then bright and bold for the wedding reception. They did an incredible job, from creating loose romantic bouquets and greenery crowns for the ceremony to milk churns brimming with riotous colours for the reception. They spent months making organic rose petal confetti for us too – which was fun for the guests and looked great in the photos. We were so lucky with the weather, it was a glorious day and ended up with a lot of friends and family swimming in the natural pool in my parent’s garden!”
