Gilbert White's House
We met with Anna & Johnny the day before their wedding to see their venue. We arrived as they were setting up their marquee in the grounds of Gilbert White's House, home of the pioneering naturalist Gilbert White. Anna and her mum had been busy making bunting, flags, napkins and sewing the names for their table plan, which decorated the marquee. Johnny and Anna were busy decking the tables with flowers & herbs, whilst Johnny's mum was decorating the village church with ornamental trees and beautiful flower arrangements ready for the wedding the following day.
Anna & Johnny planned a relaxed, rustic festival style wedding. In true Glastonbury style it rained on the day and in true festival spirit everybody had fun regardless with their wellies at the ready. Guests dressed up, danced the night away, played games and gathered on the hay bails chatting by candlelight.
We have to give a special mention to Vanilla Catering, who served a delicious three course meal of sugar cured beef carpaccio with Hampshire watercress, guinea fowl and a nougat parfait with seasonal berries for dessert, the food was outstanding! Anna & her friends are queens of baking and cooked up a table of sweet treats, including lavender hearts, florentines, rose & marshmallow cupcakes as well as the biggest Rice Krispie cake I've ever seen!
The fact the rain didn't dampen anyones spirits is a true reflection on this couple, their friends and family and as you can see everyone had so much fun it was a truly wonderful day! Everyone made us feel so very welcome and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved!
Here is a preview of Anna & Johnny's rustic country wedding in the village of Selborne, Hampshire. Anna & Johnny got married near where they both grew up and planned their wedding day filled with personal touches. Anna & Johnny love the countryside and knew they wanted to hold their reception at Gilbert White's House, home of the pioneering naturalist, Gilbert White.
Anna & Johnny are such great company and we really felt a part of their day, with such a welcoming crowd of friends and family! More from Anna & Johhny's wedding day will be coming soon.
