Gorgeous Brickhouse Vineyard Devon wedding for Recommended stationer Paper Belles
We loved how our wedding was completely 'us'! We love how it was a juxtaposition between formal and relaxed. An example of this would be the fact that it was a black-tie event and everyone was jumping on a bouncy castle. We incorporated our love for modern minimalism and timeless Irish traditions. Also, when we learned we could have a mini wine and cheese tasting instead of canapés after our ceremony, we were SOLD! We really focussed on choosing local, ethical and sustainable suppliers wherever possible, as that was really important to us both. Of course, I created my own eco-friendly wedding stationery too! Rock My Wedding featured heavily in our wedding planning journey, from inspiration to finding our dream suppliers!
Brickhouse Vineyard wedding
Brickhouse Vineyard Devon wedding venue offers a truly captivating allure. Imagine exchanging vows amidst the idyllic vineyard backdrop, surrounded by friends, family, and the gentle rustle of grapevines. Well, Jade & Will don't have to imagine it - because that dream really did come true for them. The couple completely fell in love with the venue after they went for a wine and cheese-tasting event there. They loved how beautiful the place was, and how warm and relaxed the owners Joanna and Matt were. This was especially important to Jade, who has hidden disabilities. Brickhouse Vineyard also commits to sustainable and organic practices, cultivating a variety of exceptional grapes that thrive in the region's favourable climate and nutrient-rich soil. Jade & Will also wanted to remain eco-conscious when picking out their suppliers and planning their wedding. With eco-friendly stationery and ethical and local suppliers, this wedding was in equal measure stunning and sustainable.
Making the day theirs
Jade & Will wanted their wedding to be completely unique and individual to them. Rather than having wedding readings, the couple opted for personalised wedding vows, featuring a few phrases written in Gaelic. They also included some excellent song choices, might we add. The bridal entrance as After Rain (acoustic) by Dermont Kennedy, the signing of the register was Lego House by Ed Sheeran, they exited the ceremony to Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran, and their beautiful first dance was to Outnumbered (Acoustic) by Dermot Kennedy. Think it's safe to say the couple are big Sheeran/Kennedy fans. And the personalisation didn't end there! Jade & Will also DIYed a lot of the wedding decor themselves. Adding illustrations of grape vines to the stationery was a beautiful nod to their venue. She also created table name signs which had photos of the bride and groom during the years 1991, 2001, and 2011 (the year they met). Each table name was ten years apart, which led to 10 years later being 2021 (their wedding)!
Old Hollywood glamour, an off-the-shoulder wedding dress, Irish nods and gorgeous stationery... What more could you want?
If we had any advice, it would be this. Make sure you take a moment during the day to just spend some time alone together. Everything is a whirlwind on the day, so it's really important to just take in the moment with your partner. We took some time in the evening to go and sit together outside and watched the rain fall over the vineyard. The moonlight had a beautiful red glow as it was a red harvest full moon. It was such a special moment.
We're not crying, you are. This Brickhouse Vineyard Devon wedding was a gorgeous festival of love, from start to finish. And what can we say? We love love. It wasn't just the big day that was super chic - the couple arrived in style too, in that classic baby blue wedding car. If you want some wedding car inspiration, we've got just the article to help.
