All things bright and beautiful for this March wedding! This couple met through the bride's brother and were friends for years before they finally got together and the wedding was definitely worth the wait. They planned every detail together, even going against traditions with James going with Jess to pick her wedding dress - in fact, it was the dress that James and her mother picked that she fell in love with and wore on the big day. The classic day included groomsmen in black tuxedos with bridesmaids to match in off the shoulder black dresses, completely contrasting the pretty wildflower floral bouquets that brightened up this Spring wedding.

What Made Our Day Unique

Our wedding felt as magical as the wonderland we based it on, every detail was two and a half years in the making with input from some of the most special people in our lives...We tried to keep everything local to our gorgeous venue, which is in the middle of stunning Wiltshire countryside, we got married in March and even then, it took my breath away, every detail was thought through by the staff there, down to the little tea lights in all of the alcoves in the ceremony room.

March Wedding

Wellington Barn was the perfect venue choice for this March wedding. The bright wildflower Spring bouquets complemented the soft Wiltshire countryside that was the backdrop for these gorgeous portraits from Sarah-Jane Ethan Photography. The tree slices and teacup flower displays made for pretty wedding breakfast centerpieces where the food was the focus, with all locally sourced ingredients for the delicious pie and mash!

Inpsiration & Styling

I wanted our wedding to be very crisp with splashes of colour, I chose to have my bridesmaids in black dresses and James chose black suits to match, the image I had in my mind worked out perfectly as the bridesmaid bouquets looked so vibrant and beautiful against their dresses. The whole of our theme centred around our extraordinary flowers, our florist, Claire Blythe just got my vision of classic Alice in Wonderland straight away and I gave her a fairly free reign for her to do what she felt was best and it was well worth it. It was her idea to add in the playing cards, jewellery and tiny keys to the arrangements and it was those little touches everyone noticed. She called my flower choices “English country garden in summer”, I wanted bright, wild looking flowers that felt like they would belong in the Wiltshire countryside.
