What Made Our Day Uniqiue
Primarily we feel the setting made our day unique as it was at home rather than a venue. We also planned the entire wedding ourselves, from sourcing all our own suppliers to finding ways to create the little touches that would bring our vision to life. We also played with the traditional format of the day where we could to create a more relaxed vibe - for example, all speeches took place at the end of the drinks reception in the orchard to allow the father of the bride, groom and best man to relax and enjoy the rest of the day sooner.
Moon Gate ArchUsing their wildflower orchard as the venue for the celebration, the couple felt they should style the day to complement this, guests were first wowed when they arrived and greeted with a floral moon gate arch and as they carried on into the marquee, at every turn there were more flowers! Floral installations hung above the dining area and bright blooms and Dahlias littered the tables. The four-tiered semi-naked wedding cake was adorned with floral clusters and even the wooden bar looked beautifully decorated!
Inspiration & Styling
We wanted a relaxed country-chic home wedding that would lend itself to the setting - the bride's family home in Gloucestershire. We used the wildflower orchard as the reception venue and felt all styling needed to complement this - particularly the flowers and styling of the marquee. We also wanted the vibe of our wedding to represent us as a couple - a heavily curated formal event with white tablecloths would not have been our style! The inspiration came from all over - elements of other weddings we had attended, Instagram, Pinterest, anywhere!
