Favourite Moment Of Our Day
We chose to get married at Pimhill Barn. We said our vows in the Cart Shed, enabling us to have an intimate, autumnal ceremony. We kept the décor simple, using Persian rugs and leaves to create an aisle, and a large floral wreath at the altar. I walked down the aisle with my Dad to an orchestral version of ‘Today’ by the Smashing Pumpkins. For readings we had ‘Marriage’ (anon.) and ‘The Wedding Singer’ (anon.). We chose these as they were lighthearted, but had a lovely sentiment. The whole ceremony was breathtaking and our favourite part of the day.
Wedding guests love nothing more than when newlyweds keep a couple of surprises up their sleeves. Singing waiters. A feisty first dance. Or, following in Maisie and Michael's footsteps, a mariachi band. I mean, how fun. The band burst out of the barn doors to follow our couple into their confetti arch, before playing during the drinks reception. Don't you just love that? And how about all these amazing autumn colours and decorative details, which prove that you don't need to be wedded to the idea of getting wed in the traditional seasons. Doing something a little different can elevate your wedding from lovely to epic with very little effort. Take this as your permission to think outside the box!
Inspiration Behind The Styling
Inspiration for our styling heralded from my mum finding colourful paper fans in M&S. This prompted us to move away from the ‘traditional’ wedding tones to looking at a combination of strong autumn shades with big and bold Mexicana colours. Kath from The Shropshire Field completely understood the vibe of the wedding, and created incredible flowers. We had beautiful bright colours on what turned out to be a wet and windy English day.
