Kelly launched ‘Truly Quirky Wedding Venues’ on January 1st this year off the back of being asked my visitors at her unique creative wedding fairs whether she knew of any really unique places to get wed. She’s been running Belle’s Events for over 4 years now so she had a few awesome venues already on her books, such as the coveted ‘Bell Inn Ticehurst’ but for 4 months during the gloomy winter she searched and delved in to the www for some Truly Quirky Wedding Venues and with her charm and a little convincing she managed to get 10 on board for the launch. Since then, the venues have doubled and she is thrilled with the hit rate on the site.
Today I Have a super cute wedding for you courtesy of Chris and Anneka from Bloom Weddings. It’s a farm wedding filled with lots of lovely lavender details, along with other pretty pastels. Gorgeous flowers and wonderful DIY projects all inspired from the brides love of vintage. With an amazing location and an abundance of sunshine this wedding is just brimming with English country charm and so much love. A gorgeous bride and groom and a whole lot of fun makes this wedding a wonderful collection of beautiful photography and a whole load of wedding inspiration.
‘A Relaxed vintage boho wedding with lots of food and drink! Emphasis on the relaxed feel to the day and a lot of love!’
Charlotte and Daniel were married on 5th July 2014 at Old Brampton Church – Chesterfield – and their reception was at a friends Farm. ‘I have always wanted a traditional wedding and the church was so beautiful and very local to us, our original location for the reception let us down so we were very lucky for our friends to offer their farm for the day and it was perfect for our style of wedding! We had 120 guests and it took 10 months to plan.
Happy Bank Holiday Monday everyone! I do hope you are having a lovely one. Is it sunny where you are? It is glorious here so I am off to enjoy a day in the sunshine as I have been working all weekend, getting the blog ready for my trip to Ibiza next week. We have anther bunch of amazing weddings for you this week starting off with this gorgeous wedding from John and Soph from John Barwood Photography. It’s a wedding full of DY projects and amazing handmade decoration, from the table plan to the table numbers, the wedding signs to the headband and bouquets, along with the Wedding dress and the bridesmaids dress, which were made by Josephines mum. It’ great to see a wedding with so much Character and personality.
‘It felt very surreal but was great fun’
Josephine and Emile were married on 18th October 2014 at Paintworks in Bristol. The venue was a great big blank canvas, and gave us the feeling that we could really make it ‘our own’. We also liked that fact that we could have both the ceremony and the reception there, and so didn’t have to think about the logistics of getting everybody from A to B. We had 90 guests attend. As for the planning and organising – For the big things (for example, finding venue, arranging the ceremony, choosing food, sorting the band, finding photographers), these were arranged probably over the course of a few months at the beginning of the year. We then went away travelling for 5 months and came back one month before getting married, which I spent making things.
Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all today? Well what a weekend! I’d like to say a Massive congratulation to Princess Kate and Prince William on the birth of their beautiful baby girl, we have another princess, what lovely news! How are you enjoying your bank holiday weekend? Mine has been pretty much work focused as I am away on holiday next weekend, so I am frantically trying to get enough blog posts written to keep you all occupied while I am away!
