Chelsea and Jim’s ‘Glitz and Groove’ Eclectic Music Themed Kent Barn Wedding by Steve Fuller Photography
Today I have the gorgeous wedding of Chelsea and Jim to share with you. Chelsea...
Happy Tuesday everyone, how are you managing in this mini heatwave we are currently having? Isn’t it lovely to at last have summer here! Today’s is a bit of an emotional one for me as it’s Dexter’s last day in Reception. He will be moving into Year 1 in September, and I know it’ a cliche to say it, but where has the time gone! I can’t believe it’s a year already! So I may well shed a little tear today as my little boy is growing up too fast! Anyway, enough of that, on to today’s gorgeous wedding, all the way from Warwick in New York. Nicole and Andrew chose Pioneer Farm as their wedding venue and what an amazing choice. Set in the heart of the countryside, where they grow their own flowers, this venue gave Nicole and Andrew the flexibility they were looking for, plus the backdrop for their gorgeous rustic chic wedding. There are so many amazing decoration ideas, along with the stunning flowers grown by the venue. Jennifer Larsen Photography was there to capture the day so beautifully.
Nicole and Andrew’s wedding day was hands down one of the coolest all around! From the impeccable venue, Pioneer Farm in Warwick new York to their stunning wild florals, and the unique cultural performances at their reception. These two know how to party hard and do it BIG. Pioneer Farm had so many incredible aspects to it. One of my favorites?! They GROW the flowers in their garden for the wedding couple to use. The property is vast and beautiful with such a unique vibe. There was tall grass to frolic through, vintage airstreams that people can rent on AirBnb but we used for portraits, mountain views for days, and plenty of stunning nooks for portraits.
Happy Monday to you and how are you all this fine Monday morning? Did you have a good weekend? Mine was spent at Tramlines Festival in Sheffield and we had an awesome time! Such a good weekend! This week it is the start of the summer holidays, so if you are currently juggling work and child care I feel your pain! Today though I have a wonderful woodland wedding to share with you courtesy of Nicola Thompson. Katie and Sam wanted an outdoor wedding so when they found Captains Wood Barn they were delighted. They filled their day with lots of different music, kept their decoration simple with a festival vibe and made it super personal by doing a lot of it themselves. A gorgeous day, I’m sure you will agree.
Katie and Sam were married on 15th September 2018 at Captains Wood Barn, Maldon in Essex. ‘We fell in love with the venue from the moment we turned into the drive. We both love the outdoors and wanted to incorporate nature into the day, we always wanted to get married in the woods. Captains Wood Barn is simply stunning, it has private woodlands, ponds, a huge barn, loads of open lawn space and tractor…what more could you want. We had 150 guests and it took a year and a half to plan, with lots of ups and downs!

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have had a good week and that you are looking forward to the weekend ahead! I am off to a festival this weekend. It’s a local festival in Sheffield called Tramlines it’s around 35,000 people going over 3 days, but the best bit is because it’s local we can go home to bed and have a shower and our own bed. It’s just me and Nik tomorrow and then it’s family day on Sunday so Dexter will be joining us. I’m looking forward to seeing Annie Mac, Rag ‘N’ Bone man and Nile Rodgers!…anyhow, lets crack on with today’s wedding. Rachel and Ben have been kind enough to share their wedding with us today and it’s a real beauty. They were lucky enough to hold the reception in Ben’s parents garden, so the whole day is super personal. They stripped back the decor and opted for foliage only, no flowers and minimal fuss. Rachel looks stunning in her Grace Loves Lace dress, what a gorgeous couple they make! Big thanks to The Vedrines for the beautiful images.
Rachel and Ben were married on 25th May 2019 with a ceremony at St Bartholomew’s Church, Sproxton, England. Reception at Ben’s parents’ home, Sproxton in Leicestershire. ‘It meant a lot to Ben to get married at home and I fell in love with his parents home the first time I visited when we were young and still just dating. It’s a beautiful space in a beautiful part of the world and now all the more special to us. We had 100 guests to the day and 140 in the evening. The day took more organising than expected. I have my own business and manage my own part time hours which really worked to my advantage.
This afternoon I have a real treat for you. The chance to win your wedding favours with the amazing Hola Mola. Now this competition is very personal one to me, as Ana the owner of Hol Mola is a good friend of mine. Our sons go to the same school and she lives 2 streets away from me, so I have got to know Ana very well over the past year. Her cakes, desserts and chocolate treats are OUT OF THIS WORLD! It really is no word of a lie when I say I have never tasted cakes like hers! I ordered myself a chocolate birthday cake this year from Ana, and it was Soooooo delicious. She then went onto bake Dexter’s birthday cake, as well as a number of chocolate treats for Nik and I! Honestly she is a real talent when it comes to her knowledge of chocolate. Nik and I both agree we have never tasted chocolate like it! It’s her amazing secret ingredient!
