Ciara and Richard’s Picnic Style Barn Wedding in York By James and Lianne

Today we are heading back to the midst of the summer for this gorgeous barn wedding in York and a big dose of sunshine. James and Lianne photographed this gorgeous wedding full of country-style and a picnic theme. With amazing food, a Ceilidh Band, a beautiful BHLDN wedding dress it really is a day to remember and a feast for the eyes. Well done to Ciara and Richard for planning the whole thing from Singapore, what an amazing day you had.

‘Our wedding day was very relaxed and informal with a garden party feel as people sat in the sunshine and chatted over gin and ice cream. From getting ready in the morning to dancing in the ceilidh the whole day was full of fun’

Ciara and Richard were married on 2nd August 2015. The ceremony was at St Lawrence’s Church in York and the reception was at Tithe Barn in Nether Poppleton. ‘As we currently live abroad in Singapore it wasn’t easy for us to choose our wedding venues, but the beautiful church was just up the road from where we used to live! Our wedding in St Lawrence’s was actually a church blessing as we did ‘the legal bit’ in Singapore a few weeks beforehand in a small ceremony with 4 close friends. Getting our marriage blessed in the church was very important to us as we got to share it with all of our special people. We had 80 guests, which was just the right number for the barn venue. The planning process took about 18 months and although stressful at times it was very enjoyable! The internet was our best friend during this time as we had to book everything online or through Skype calls with family, friends and vendors. We never even saw our venue in person before we booked it – just some pictures online.

Boho Loves: Wedfest – Festival Wedding Wristbands

Festival weddings are BIG at the moment! I have featured so many on the blog I have lost count. Over the past few years brides and grooms have certainly taken a more relaxed view to their wedding day and turned it into their own festival of love. Bringing in bands, creating  a much more chilled environment, more relaxed catering options and really making their wedding reflect their personality. One way you can really give your wedding a festival feel is with the stationery. Wedfest are a specific festival wedding stationery company, offering a multitude of options for your own Festival wedding.

One of the unique products that Wedfest produce are Festival Wedding Wristbands. Wedfest offer lots of different options with their festival wristbands.

Personalised Festival Wrist bands 

First of all Wedfest design personalised wristbands to fit the theme of your own wedding. You can choose the design, the colour, add in your name, dates of the wedding, anything to follow your own wedding theme. These are great for larger weddings and really add a splash of colour and a real festival vibe. They can be given to the guests as they arrive at the wedding, just like at an actual festival. They are then left on for the whole of the wedding and taken away with them as mementos, acting as a cool alternative to the wedding favour. They can also be given to the guests as an actual wedding invite alongside their paper invites, which would really set the tone for any festival wedding.
The beauty of the personalised options is you can make everyone feel like a VIP for the day with a wristband that says ‘Access All Areas’, or ‘Backstage Pass’

Happy Sunday everyone and how are you all this cold winters day? I hope you are braving the weather, have you had snow? We had a scattering on Saturday but so far the rest seems to have stayed away! Today we have a family day planned. We are off to our first Christmas fayre of the season at a local farm. I’m hoping Dexter is going to get to see Santa and we can get to buy a few Christmas present or some new decorations. Then we are off for a Sunday lunch, which I’m looking forward to, a lovely cosy winters Sunday with my two boys, perfect!
It’s been a manic week on the blog, Kelly C got back from New York on Tuesday and then I was in Bedford for the judging of the Four Counties Wedding Awards. I got to meet some lovely people and was introduced to some wonderful wedding suppliers who had entered the awards, all will be revealed in February.
