Front or back, real bride Hannah's Maggie Sottero wedding dress is going to take your breath away. From the beaded lace to the beautiful silhouette and especially that train, you'll be wanting to find out where you can get your hands on your own Everly gown. You'll probably also adore the colourful Spring wedding flowers and fabulous wedding signs, plus the garden games and adorable references to the couples cockapoo too. In fact, this whole farm wedding is a pin lovers dream, captured to perfection by recommended supplier Jason Mark Harris. Enjoy.

What Made Our Day Unique

We wanted our wedding to represent who we are. We both love sport (for our mini-moon we went cycling in Mallorca) so all of our tables were named after our favourite sportspeople. Matt’s main sport is rugby so we had a ‘rugby ball toss’ instead of a ‘bouquet toss’. We also had crazy golf, a bowling alley and garden games to keep guests entertained! We also wanted our dog Bertie to be at the heart of our day so he was our ringbearer and our table place names were labels with an illustration of Bertie. We also had bunting that was custom-made by a family friend Denise that incorporated both dog and cycling-based fabrics and it looked fantastic!

Maggie Sottero Wedding Dress

Considering Hannah had never worn a full-length dress in her life she looks totally at ease in her floor-length Maggie Sottero wedding dress. After visiting eight different bridal boutiques she fell for the beading and train on the Everly gown and we can totally see why. The detailing is exquisite and glistens beautifully during the golden hour portraits. I love that her bridesmaids also wore complementary True Bride dresses with similar lace necklines. Together they look the picture of elegance.

Inspiration & Styling

We found Rumbolds Farm from an online search. I love barn venues and there was a beautiful Catholic church in Petworth, only a short drive from Rumbolds Farm. Rumbolds is a beautiful 16th-century rustic barn with a lawn and lake. It is very picturesque and also has a bridal suite and farmhouse which sleeps about 12. We wanted our wedding venue to allow dogs as it was really important for us to have our 3-year-old cockapoo, Bertie, with us on our wedding day. I adored our flowers! We wanted to make the most of the beautiful English Spring flowers so we had lots of tulips, peonies and delphinium. We both love bright colours and Matt loves orange, so we really wanted our flowers to be bright and beautiful, with a rustic feel. Jodie at The Little Violet did an absolutely amazing job – we had so many compliments about our wedding flowers!

Hannah and Matt found RMW recommended photographer, Jason Mark Harris, and videographer, Harris Films, on Rock My Wedding. They loved Jason’s work -"he manages to capture so much emotion in his photographs and they are stunning. He was the first supplier that we booked, and when we booked Jason we were extremely lucky to find out that Sarah was also available and able to be our videographer. It was fantastic to have a photographer and videographer who worked seamlessly together and with a very similar style– we will treasure our wedding photos and film forever! What a lovely testimonial, and a true reflection of Jason and Sarah's dedication to their couples.
