Katie & Tom’s Village Fete Meets Music Festival Wedding. By Sun & Moon

When we received this submission from today’s bride and groom, we couldn’t wait to see their ‘village fete meets music festival’ wedding, with photography by Sun & Moon. Katie and Tom have successfully mixed two fantastic institutions and created one magical, fun wedding which they shared with their friends and family in a much loved family location.

‘A magical day, unfussy and fun; much like ourselves! A festival feel with a classy twist.’

Katie and Tom were married on the 31st May at All Hallows Church in South Cerney with their reception at Berry Farm. “Katie’s grandparents live in the village and close to her parents, so it was the ideal location.”

How did you allocate your budget?
The venue and catering were about the same and the most expensive. Everything else was sundries and things we made ourselves.

Why did you choose your photographer?
We were trying to either spend money locally and/or give somebody starting out a chance and Sun & Moon seemed like an excellent fit for the day.
