What Made Our Day Unique
Amy has ties to Bridport in Dorset, and we really wanted to get married in the local area. Having grown up watching River Cottage and regularly visiting the canteen in Axminster, it quickly became our first place to consider. After seeing the venue, we made our decision and didn’t look anywhere else. We loved the idea of getting married outside and we were so lucky with the weather on the day. We hired the River cottage games package which included welly throwing, skittles and coconut shire. Everyone loved the welly throwing and one guest won a golden welly signed by Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall.
Ombre Wedding Dress
Guilty as charged, we absolutely LOVE a Needle & Thread ombre wedding dress. Especially when they are full of amazing details like Amy's gown. From the embellishment to the high neck and long sleeve design, and not forgetting the gorgeous blush ombre tulle skirt it's certainly ticking all the boxes and more. But, this was not Amy's original choice! After falling pregnant Amy's first Needle & Thread gown no longer fit, but N&T were so kind they allowed Amy to swap her dress for an alternative, no questions asked. Just the level of customer service you'd expect from an RMW handpicked supplier. She finished her bridal look with a customised leather jacket and Rockstud bridal shoes and was pure bridal goals.
Inspiration & Styling
We loved River Cottage as a venue because of its rustic charm and relaxed and natural beauty. The venue didn’t need anything adding, as it was exactly what we were looking for. We arranged a few additional flowers and had sparklers in the evening which the guests loved.
