Rosie & Dan got married on a beautiful Spring day at Upwaltham Barns in West Sussex, next to Goodwood estate, with views of the South Downs.
Their wedding day was relaxed and full of emotion, Rosie & Dan had been waiting for this day for a long time and everyone was so excited it was finally here! They celebrated along with their two children and closest friends and family. As you can see the day was filled with fun & laughter in beautiful surroundings. Rosie and Dan looked amazing as did their bridal party and all the rustic details Rosie & her friends had spent so long planning.
We hope these photos bring back all those special moments!
If you pick up this month's issue of Perfect Wedding Magazine, you will see a whopping 6 page feature of Anna & Johnny's fun festival wedding we shot last April in Hampshire! Full of fun festival wedding ideas and ideal inspiration for anyone who is worried about rain on their big day (oh and it also contains a rice krispie wedding cake!).
Charlotte & Clinton planned a rustic, eco-friendly wedding celebration, which began at Charlotte's parents farm in Wiltshire. Charlotte wore her Grandmother's wedding dress, which fit her like a glove!
Charlotte & her bridesmaids took a vintage bus ride to The West Barn in Bradford on Avon, where their ceremony was held. Charlotte & Clinton's reception took place in a beautifully decorated Tipi back at the farm, where a vegetarian feast was served and everyone partied the night away!
Mio & Gordon celebrated their wedding at Huntstile Organic Farm in Somerset. Mio & Gordon's family & friends came together from Scotland to New Zealand to share their day.
We arrived at the farm in the morning to find guests camping in the fields, exploring the village and children playing in the fields along with the farm's dogs. There was such a relaxed atmosphere, which carried on throughout the day. Later guests gathered in the farm house before getting onboard the tractor, which was to take them across the fields to the stone circle. The stone circle is situated on a hill top beside woodland and has the most amazing views overlooking the Quantock Hills.
Mio & her father walked down the woodland path, through a willow archway into the Stone Circle where guests were gathered in excitement. Mio & Gordon's humanist ceremony was very personal, emotional and intimate.
Following their ceremony guests hopped back on the tractor, drinking organic cider on the way and warmed up in the farm house. Later everyone made their way into the marquee, which was decorated with pom poms, rustic flowers and twisted willow. I loved Mio & Gordon's hand painted table names, named after their favourite ciders: Legless but smiling, Green Goblin, Rathay's Old Goat, Druids Celtic Cider, Moles Black Rat, Janet's Jungle Juice & Black Dragon. A BBQ was served with a range of delicious organic salads; there was certainly plenty of food to go around and as the chef told us none would be wasted as any leftovers are fed to the chickens!
Kate & James held their wedding at the Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury in the Cotswolds. We met with Kate and her family in a little cottage just down the road from the barn. Meanwhile James was putting the finishing touches to the barn. There were lots of DIY elements to Kate & James' wedding; they made their own stationery, which I am sure you will agree looked gorgeous!
Kate & James are big music lovers and their wedding took inspiration from this love. They are regular festival goers and this Summer went to the end of the road festival at the Larmer Tree Gardens, where they picked up the gorgeous wood block prints you can see on the tables. Instead of your traditional guest book they asked everyone to post a message 'for the record...' and pop it in the record player so they can make their own guest book. And you guessed it, EVERYONE rocked the dance floor in the evening to the sounds of the ZuZu men.
I also have to give a mention to Chocolate Delores, who made Kate & James' white chocolae cake, which was a work of art!
