Our Wedding Day
Some parts of it seem like a blur, others are stuck in my mind. I can't believe we're 2 months in, in equal parts it feels like should've been yesterday and also years ago.
THEME// We wanted laid back festival and I think we achieved that. I loved how the marquee company completely changed how the village hall looked. With the foliage and wild flowers it really brought together the look we envisioned.
FOOD// We didn't have a sit down meal as space was tight and it wasn't really something we thought of doing. We also wanted to give all our guests the option to eat with us if they wanted to. We started with canapes which I'm still dreaming about now. They designed one which was a bite sized breakfast; hash brown base, streaky bacon, homemade ketchup, topped with half a quails egg. My god, just give me a tray full of them now. The main event was a hog roast and veggie chilli followed by our late night snacks. We got our local pizza place to deliver a bunch of margarita and pepperoni pizzas- people seemed to really like it and it was a great breakfast the following morning. Desserts were an array of cheesecakes and the wedding cake.
ADDED TOUCHES// We wanted to personalise our wedding where we could so we added a Pimp Your Prosecco cart filled with sloe gin, limoncello, orange juice and a range of fruit. We also had a some great products that I found in Lakeland that added 'bubbles' to your drinks and also a powder that turned your drink a beautiful pink colour with flecks of gold leaf and a hint of raspberry.
We also had a temporary tattoo station that I think the adults liked more than the children. I saw so many of our guests with their arms, fingers, face and head tattoo'd!
A confetti bar was set up with the intention of it being used by guests before our blessing but the rain had other ideas. It was still used though and a certain 2 year old had the most fun chucking it everywhere yelling 'CONFETTTTTIIII!'
As favours, we made hangover kits which included a Vitamin C sachet, gum, ibuprofen, a tea bag and a packet of love hearts.
TRADITIONAL?// We wanted the day to be us and but not want all the attention on us 24/7. We had a small legal ceremony with only close family, followed by a blessing at our main venue. There was no awkward first dance but a cheildh that involved everyone. We didn't cut the cake and go down a lot of the traditional route.
I loved our day and it's true what they say it really does go by so fast. I wish we could go back and relive it, soak it in more, dance more and just do it all over gain as I loved it and want to remember more of it all over again.
All photographs taken by the ever-so talented and even lovelier Jo. Honestly we couldn't have been happier with her work and how all our pictures turned out. We wanted low key and natural and she did us justice. I can't recommend her enough and she is just fantastic as well. I got caught up chatting to her about the world and more importantly Glastonbury than wedding things!
