The Vibe Of Our Day
The day had a very rustic vibe. We tried to save money by doing things ourselves wherever we could; we did all our own stationery printing, collected empty gin bottles to hold greenery for the tables, dried rose petals for a year and made our own confetti cones, and even foraged woodland for greenery and logs to create our natural look. Our neighbour also cut down their eucalyptus tree before the wedding which was very useful! My Daughters of Simone boho wedding dress, complete with tassels, was perfect for the vibe of the day and our local florist, Brambles, created complementary bouquets that were wild, trailing and full of beautiful foliage.
Forest Themed WeddingKirsty & Will are both obsessed with greenery and succulents, so having a forest themed wedding with plenty of natural décor was a no-brainer. And how wonderfully it worked. Nature oozes out of every gorgeous element - all of which was a DIY effort by our lovely couple, who even learnt the art of macramé! Suppliers were all selected because they were local or known through friends, and our newlyweds were so happy with their choice of RMW recommended Benni Carol Photography, who shared their love for natural photos full of greenery and woodland. As you can see for yourselves, the resulting shots are spectacular.
Favourite Moment Of Our Day
We had our ceremony in the village church next door to the primary school where we met 18 years ago. Walking through the village to the church with my bridal party, being greeted by lots of villagers who had come out to wave us along, felt very special. And I know its cliché, but seeing Will standing at the bottom of the aisle was just everything I had ever wished and hoped for. After the ceremony, we drove to the reception in a VW campervan and stopped off for some quiet woodland photos, which was a wonderful way to appreciate the moment. Seeing our vision of the tipi tent coming together so perfectly – and the nonstop laughter from our guests – are also things we’ll never forget.
