A Blushing Bride.

karla and pat cover image1 A Blushing Bride.

This is rustic…but done a little differently. Karla and Pat married at Stokbridge Farm in Sherborn, Dorset. It was the first venue Karla looked at and it ticked all the boxes. She wanted something magically rustic and she got it.

There are so many sweet details and I love the seating plan and cute lavender favours.

Karla tells the story better than me…so here goes…

Hollywood Glamour

Karla The Bride: I saw one of Patrick’s friends get married in a blue sequin dress and knew at that moment that I didn’t want to wear white. I decided that I wanted a timeless look reminiscent of 1940′s Hollywood glamour. I have a pear shape and wanted a dress that hugged my hips and made me look like Jessica Rabbit! My dress was the Winter Kate Limited Edition Nicole Dress in Pink, designed by Nicole Richie. I got it for a quarter of the price on Outnet.com. It was a dusty rose colour with tailored paneling. A distinctive feature was the fishtail. I wanted my dress to be catwalk moment.

A Little Lace

I wore a lace cover from Etsy. I wanted something white for the ceremony. I had a quicksand dusty pink rose in my hair. I’m half Latin-American so I wanted to have a slightly Hispanic look. I wore a third generation Rose gold bangle, my mum’s pearl earring and a necklace my dad gave me.

I’m nearly 6ft so wore flat shoes from Kurt Geiger. They were white lace.… View the full post.

A Marriage At River Cottage.

Mike and Esmè Married at St Gregory’s Church in Seaton and had their reception at River Cottage.

That’s right folks – The River Cottage made famous by Hugh Fearnley “kill-a-rabbit-with-my-bear-hands-for-breakfast” Whittingstall!

The magnificent Sam Gibson was on hand with a box of lenses to capture this rural delight in all its glory.

Wow Factor.

River Cottage Hq was the most amazing venue. The location, staff and food were relaxed and overall the place had an amazing wow factor.

Cat our wedding Co-ordinator was a super star, from the moment we walked down the wobbly hill to River Cottage we knew this was our place. Cat was always on the end of the phone or email when needed, but also was very relaxed about the day and helped us choose the food giving us ideas on how to use River Cottage for the day. We had the speeches outside in the garden with champagne and canapés, then the yurt for coffee after the meal.

The chef gave a toast to the guests explaining how the spit roast lamb was prepared and how he and the team had prepared the meal. They used veg from my father’s farm which was great to incorporate into our day. My dad doesn’t normally like courgettes but did on this day – the way the chef had cooked them, delicious!

The staff where so good on the day and so happy, the guests again commented on how good all the staff were.… View the full post.
