Relaxed DIY wedding at Deepdale Farm

If you're planning to make DIY decorations, we would recommend making them with plenty of time to spare to save yourself a lot of stress! But our biggest piece of advice is to find ways, however big or small, to make the day personalised and special to you. It's all well and good having a beautiful day, but you want the day to feel special to you as a couple and to feel connected to all the lovely guests who are sharing the day with you. Also, don't be afraid to add lots of colour to your wedding day!

Deepdale Farm Wedding Venue

Alice & Harry wanted their day to feel special for every guest. Deepdale Farm has a few areas for guests to make their own memories with a roof terrace, fire pit, and a courtyard with outdoor games and music. The couple had family members involved in all aspects of the day from the ceremony, speeches, decorations and evening food! Alice & Harry wanted the day to feel fun and informal, like a big party with lots of colour and vibrancy. The couple said Deepdale Farm is the most incredible venue and highly recommend it! The best part is the camping field! Alice & Harry hired tipis to share with family and friends to start the celebrations early. They hired an outdoor cinema and watched 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' the night before the wedding.

DIY Wedding

All parts of this wedding were truly personalised and unique to the couple and their loved ones. Alice wore a vintage wedding dress and there were plenty of homemade decorations made by family and friends. Alice & Harry were legally married the day before with close family and the groom's sister was their celebrant. The whole day was incredibly special and intimate! Alice also runs her own cake business and created their wedding cake. The couple considered themselves very lucky at how easy it was for them to choose their suppliers, and the whole day felt like a celebration of their creative friends! The close connection with their suppliers also allowed them some freedom to experiment with the day they had envisioned.

Forget a DJ! All you need to do is create a few fun playlists to get the party going!

Our favourite moment was during the wedding breakfast when our guests were tucking into the delicious food, drinking and laughing together. That was a really happy moment for both of us, to see everything we had created come together and see our loved ones celebrating with us. We felt very loved and lucky to have so many special people in our lives.
