Emily and Jonathan’s Pretty Pastel Barn Wedding. By J and M Photography

I have a lovely wedding for you today, a pretty pastel barn wedding with the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Emily and Jonathan chose a lovely colour scheme of pale pink and grey, mixed in with ivory and an English garden theme. With Pimms a plenty, hay bales, giant balloons and paper pom poms this wedding is super pretty and full of handmade touches. I just love the cake table with the most amazing cup cakes and naked wedding cake, totally delicious. Big thanks to Jonathan and Maresa from J and M Photography for the images.

‘A fantastic day spent with close friends and family’

Jonathan and Emily were married on Saturday 13th September 2014 at Battlers green barn in Raddlet. ‘Our friends got married there and we loved the location – the barn the house and the garden truly stunning! We had 100 guests– close friends and family. It took Three months to plan. Our wedding day was just as we imagined and more! With perfect weather and our closest friends and family there to enjoy the day with us.’

How they met
We met at work and became friends. Then we discovered we were two peas in a pod. It then turned into an amazing loving relationship.

The Proposal
We were at Ashton court in Bristol where I took her with champagne and strawberry’s. I was on a mission to find the perfect spot (which meant go up the hill on the edge of the golf course). We found the spot that overlook the estate. Unforunately there were golfers behind us about 15-20 meters away looking for there lost golf ball. Over an hour later they went and I popped the question. Their was complete shock from Emily but she said Yes!!

Food
For the main wedding Breakfast we had a cute burger van which supplied gourmet burgers and chips with salads made by friends. For desert we had beautiful cake table made up of cup cakes and a selection of traditional cakes this was provided by our dear friend Emma Smart and the brides mother. In the evening we had a buffet supplied by us.

Wedding Cake
The wedding cake we had a naked wedding cake made by Mandy’s Cakes which looked and tasted amazing.

Entertainment
We had a band as entertainment called Superbus they were amazing and got everyone dancing. Also on the day our friends did a Pimm’s tent to offer all of our guest’s a drink after the ceremony which looked amazing and went down really well. In the evening we had the company Tapped come in and provide us with a bar service that we would highly recommend, friendly guys, free hire with reasonably priced drinks.
