Molly & Matt’s Lapstone Barn wedding was actually inspired by a Rock My Wedding editorial shoot! The vision for the day was clear, they needed lots of flowers and wanted that modern contemporary vibe at Recommended venue, Lapstone Barn. Molly & Matt had navy bridesmaid dresses, and statement wedding flowers with meadows, hanging installations, and urns! Designing all those incredible wedding flowers was Recommended supplier, Corky and Prince Wedding and Event Flowers. They also had Matt’s Landrover to double up as the wedding welcome sign! Molly’s stunning wedding dress is from Recommended supplier, Made With Love! The wedding band was found through Recommended supplier, Tailored Entertainment. The save the dates and thank you cards were bought from Recommended supplier, Papier

We relied heavily on recommendations from suppliers. They are all professionals in their industry and the local area so they have an excellent network! Who better to take recommendations from than someone who goes to weddings every weekend? Flowers were the centrepiece of our wedding so we started with our florist and went from there. We filled in the gaps with online research targeting style, reliability, and price point. When we found out some were Rock My Wedding Recommended suppliers it added confidence for us.

Lapstone Barn Wedding

We're all over a Lapstone Barn wedding! Molly is obsessed with flowers, so the couple went big on flowers and let the barn speak for itself. Molly & Matt wanted their wedding flowers to be classic and have that wow factor! With big white hanging flower bombs and an aisle meadow, we're certainly wowed! All the stationery was made by Matt’s parents and the ladder table plan was also a DIY project. Molly & Matt had to include Matt’s beloved Land Rover Defender in their day, so after bringing the boys, it doubled up as the welcome sign at the entrance! Molly & Matt chose Lapstone Barn as they love the Cotswolds and wanted to find a venue that made the most of the natural landscape.

The Best Bits

Molly & Matt's favourite moment was the ceremony. The couple could feel the love from all their friends and family with personal musicpoems and, of course, incredible blooms!
 Molly & Matt also loved being announced as they walked into their wedding breakfast because everyone just went absolutely wild! The dancefloor was also THE place to be thanks to their live band, Pop London! The champagne welcome drinks certainly helped too! They had lots of drinks before the ceremony to give everyone a chance to relax and settle in. Molly & Matt planned their day so that it was relaxed but still high quality.

We always recommend prioritising what’s important to you. For Molly & Matt, it was the flowers!

Our advice would be to get your core suppliers locked in early so that the big-ticket items are ticked off. Create a spreadsheet to track expenditures, including when payments are due.
 To make the planning process fun, we did DIY, and tastings to choose the wine and champagne. Leave yourself (and your family) as little to do as possible on the day itself to ensure you can enjoy and take in the big day.
 If you can, make a whole weekend or week of it! We had family cottages near our Lapstone Barn wedding. Also, get a live band every time!
