Today is day two of our week of Halloween inspired styled shoots. It has been...
Today’s styled shoot was submitted by Karen from Stand Out Ceremonies. Karen is a wedding celebrant based in central England, creating bespoke ceremonies for couples that want to break free from the restrictions and fixed format of a civil ceremony. Karen works with couples to write and deliver personalised ceremonies that are ‘completely them’ and become the memorable, fun, heart of the big day; rather than the part some couples (and guests!) might dread!
The shoot was organised for the launch of Karen’s new, unique concept in micro-weddings and elopements; the ‘Wed Wild’ package. The ultimate in breaking with convention this package gives adventurous couples a complete luxury micro-wedding package (including everything from transport to dining), set against the stunning backdrop of the Peak District National Park; completely at one with the elements, but without a formal venue.
Today I am taking you to Devon for the super cute wedding of Sophie and Dale. When your parents own a farmhouse with a massive garden it would be rude not to use it for a wedding, and that is just what Sophie and Dale did. In fact Sophie’s parents went about re landscaping their garden for the wedding and the results are amazing. Freshly planted flowers, a hand made arch and a home made bar! So many gorgeous rustic touches that really make this wedding stand out, it’s hard to say which is my favourite. Lee Maxwell was there to capture the day, and what a fantastic day it was, I just love how relaxed everyone is, the outdoor ceremony area and the marquee and hanging centrepiece look stunning.
Sophie and Dale were married on 15th June 2019 at Rosemont Farm, Devon. ‘After always talking about getting married in Europe (Austria, Switzerland) we decided to make it personal and asked Sophie’s parents if we could get married in the garden of their Devon farmhouse. We had 100 adults guests and 4 Children – no evening guests. It took one year to plan, we got married on the same weekend as we got engaged the year previous.’
Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you are well. Today I am back with a superb wedding for you. A Yorkshire barn wedding filled with rustic charm. Alison and Jake had always dreamt of a barn wedding and when they found Sykes Barn they knew their wedding prayers had been answered. They set about carrying out plenty of DIY projects which all contributed to making this wedding super personal and filled with the cutest details and decoration. The couple are avid travellers so they incorporated this into their wedding decor, along with a delicious cake table, lots of hessian and, of course, plenty of rustic touches. The day was captured beautifully by M & G Photographic who did a fantastic job.
Alison and Jake were married on 3rd August 2019, the ceremony was held at the Parish Church of St. Mary’s, Driffield in Yorkshire on the Sledmere House estate on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. The wedding reception was held at Sykes Barn, along the road from the church and opposite Sledmere House in an old converted tractor barn. ‘We originally looked at lots of different venues and I always wanted a barn but thought it was out of our price range. After scouring all of Hull and the nearby areas we didn’t see anything we liked and didn’t like being tied into a package. I started looking at barns again and found Sledmere barn actually on a forum. We loved the rustic style of it and the authentic brickwork, so we made a booking and fell in love with it and the price too!. We also liked the fact that it was near the house and gardens, if we wanted to take any photographs there, and that is was rural and out of Hull. Jake recently walked the Yorkshire Wolds Way over the course of that year too, so it was just a perfect backdrop for our special day. We had 69 guests during the day of family and friends and then a further 40 on the evening. We got engaged on August 11th, 2017 and planned the wedding over 2 years, this was to ensure we could budget and organise the wedding we wanted and still enjoy our time over those 2 years.
Happy Monday everyone and how are you all? Did you all have a good weekend? I do hope so! mine was lovely and peaceful for once. Friday I went to see my Niece in a production of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat at the Lyceum in Sheffield City centre. It was fantastic and she did so well. Then on Saturday my Mum came up to visit from Cornwall. I’ve not seen her since April, so it was a well overdue catch up. So on with this weeks weddings, today it’s the turn of Anna and Nate who were married on 10th August 2019 at Anna’s parents home in Union, Maine. This is such a cute wedding, everything about it is just so lovely. The relaxed location makes everything just flow. The beautiful bright peonies make all the decoration pop with summer goodness, the long tables filled with rustic touches, all the delicious food and of course the very happy couple. I just love this wedding, and I know you are going to love it too. Big thanks to Provencher photography for the gorgeous photos.
