What Made Our Day Unique
We are blessed to have held our wedding on our own farm. Every time we walk across the 'wedding field' (as it's now known!) the memories come flooding back. Essentially, we started with a completely blank canvas - simply six acres with a spectacular panoramic view of Dartmoor, which we made the central focus. It was integral that the day reflected who we are and where we live; from the flowers that beautifully merged rustic, wild hedgerow flowers with English roses, to the very rustic tractor photo booth, we built a day that was true to our surroundings and entirely personal.

However, wanting to feel more relaxed for the evening celebrations and be able to party the night away with her loved ones, she opted for a quick outfit change and slipped into a beautifully simple wrap dress from Ghost. The flower girls (the couple's daughters!) brought the cute factor to the day and looked super sweet in little white dresses for the day and tulle dresses for the evening! Very cute indeed!
Inspiration & Styling
Our main inspiration was the farm setting. I didn’t want to take focus away from the natural beauty of our surroundings, so we kept the palette neutral, simple and rustic – white bunting and table linen, with hints of green from votives. Our flowers provided the main source of decor, with lots of natural twine, thistles and barley wherever possible! In addition to our main marquee, we also hired a smaller gazebo style marquee from Wild Remote (who also supplied fabulous furnished bell tents as guest accomodation!) This was ideal as a ‘kids zone’ for the children who we were such a big part of our day. It was important to us that the day felt relaxed and fun for all.
