Inspiration & Styling
I really wanted somewhere that I could make my own, I got told about East Afton Farmhouse opening as a new wedding venue and I went to view and instantly fell in love. We loved the fact it was a blank canvas so we could decorate it as we wanted it and also the fact we could stay there before and after the wedding with all our family and friends. I wanted a glamorous yet tasteful theme throughout the day, initially, I wanted all whites and creams but I introduced the gold with the charger plates, name places, stationery and macarons to give some warmth.
Church Wedding FlowersFlowers were a really important part of the day for Crystal & Oli, they wanted to ensure they had the WOW factor, and boy did they! Jayne at the Flower Garden completely bought Crystal's vision to life, incorporating large-headed Roses and eucalyptus intertwined with lots of other white flowers, giving a full effect. The church wedding flowers are reminiscent of Harry and Meghan's beautiful blooms and carry on into the beautiful marquee reception.
We had mini-golf and a saxophonist during our welcome drinks and a photo-booth, candy floss and a band Switch in the evening our first dance song was Say You Won't Let Go - James Arthur which we had sang live by Switch. We let our maid of honour choose the reading for our church ceremony so it was a surprise for us on the day. We wanted to keep the ceremony as light-hearted as possible so chose 'All Things Bright and Beautiful' along with 'Give Me Joy' as our hymns.
