Alex and Ben bonded over music. Often attending music festivals at the Larmer Tree wedding venue's singing theatre. Not only does it hold a special place in their hearts, but it also provided an incredible backdrop for their couples portraits. Cue the happiest couple with the biggest smiles, stylish outfits and an immense green and white bridal bouquet.

We always wanted our wedding to be super relaxed. The main aim of the day was to become husband and wife and then after that just have fun and a laugh. We had to split our day due to Covid so the 1st May was just the ceremony with our nearest and dearest and then we will have a blessing and party in October with everyone we should have had there.

Our venue, The Larmer Tree, is so unique in itself with peacocks walking around and the most beautiful singing theatre. There’s no place like it. We go to the music festivals there so it has a dear place in our hearts.


Getting to see each other at the aisle was definitely the best bit. We were both so excited and not nervous at all which was helped due to the limit on guests. We then had so much fun having our photos taken and making each other laugh.

Could Alex and Ben be the smiliest couple ever?! Their joy is infectious.

Try to enjoy the process. It can feel stressful but take the time to remember why you’re doing it in the first place. We also highly recommend having a more intimate ceremony with a blessing and party another time. We have our wedding part two in October and we’re so excited for that too.
