An alternative fifties barn wedding at Stockbridge Farm Barn | Sherborne, Dorset | Zoe & Carrie
Zoe & Carrie planned a Fifties Barn wedding at the beautiful medieval, Stockbridge Farm Barn, Sherborne in the Dorset countryside. The day began as the girls were getting ready at home in the village of Milborne Port.
Zoe, Carrie and their Bridesmaids all got ready under one roof for the morning preparations. It's lovely when clients get ready at home as the decor is full of their personalities. It was also Carrie’s birthday so there was plenty of cake, presents & birthday nibbles to add to all the excitement!
Zoe & Carrie’s wedding day included lots of homemade details & personal touches. Zoe handmade all of the bouquets and Carrie made the wooden signing board, as she is a tree surgeon.
The day had a 1950’s theme, Zoe wore a beautiful Audrey Hepburn style white dress, Carrie wore a fitted suit, braces and cravat and the Bridesmaids wore floral and blue dresses with colourful vintage underskirts. I loved that all the Bridesmaids wore comfy converse!
Carrie arrived in a 1950’s pink Cadillac, which was her birthday surprise arranged by Zoe. Carrie arrived with her dad to be greeted by eagerly awaiting guests at Stockbridge Farm Barn. I think Carrie was a little taken aback with the effort her friends & family had put in to dressing up in Fifties attire!
The day was so much fun. From Zoe & Carrie's outdoor ceremony, full of giggles and tears, through to the Rock Band, which began with Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters for the couple’s first dance. The evening entertainment included the hilarious Byng’s, Gameshow, Roadshow, Pig Racing, Disco, which went down very well with all the guests and was very apt for this fun Dorset country wedding!
