Brides-to-be, if you’ve already started planning your wedding, you know how complex and frankly stressful...
Hello everyone and happy Monday. How is your Easter bank holiday going so far? Sick of chocolate yet? How are you enjoying the sunshine? Isn’t it amazing! It has been glorious here in Sheffield, making this lockdown just a bit more bearable, long may it last (the sunshine, not the lockdown!) As we enter week four of here in the UK I am hoping that everyone across the world reading this is keeping safe and looking after yourselves and those around you. Lets spread some love, positivity and healing vibes.
I am starting the week with this fun filled wedding, full of smiles and much laughter, just what we need! James and Steph travelled from Egham (South East England) to North Devon with their family and friends to celebrate their marriage at Streamcombe Farm in Dulverton on 1st September. The couple had tied the knot legally in their home town the day before but wanted a more natural setting for their special day. A very good friend of theirs, who is also a celebrant, conducted the blessing as the couple’s nearest and dearest gathered underneath a canopy of trees in the woodland of Streamcombe Farm to watch the happy couple recite their vows in an informal ceremony. Big thanks to Tracey Warbey Photography for the beautiful images.
Steph wore a beautiful embroidered lace detail wedding dress, which had a sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps.
Steph’s bridesmaids wore floor length dark forest green chiffon dresses and held smaller bouquets identical to the bridal bouquet.
James looked dapper in a grey tweed suit jacket, brown trousers and a floral patterned orange tie with a matching handkerchief. His buttonhole was also made up of dried flowers and feathers.
His groomsmen all wore matching trousers with dark forest green braces to match the bridesmaid’s dresses.
The wedding flowers consisted of a bouquet of dried roses, Gypsophila and feathers, which Steph had carefully put together herself.
The couple’s rustic wedding celebration was full of home made touches. Steph filled small glass vases with dried flowers to act as centre pieces on the tables with small wicker woven hearts. Pastel coloured bunting hung from the drapes of the open plan marquee along with a ribbon flower hoop. A vintage suitcase filled with pot pourii was used to collect wedding cards and the couple also used an old ladder with photo frames of their family members to decorate the venue.
After the speeches were conducted in the garden area, a luxury BBQ was served. Guests also enjoyed eton mess and home made wedding cake to finish.
Guests danced the night away as a good friend of theirs sang and Steph also enjoyed a father and daughter dance.
