Pumpkin patch wedding at Wyresdale Park in October

Our reception was anything but traditional, with arcade games lining the walls (nothing wrong with a bit of healthy competition) and a "pimp your hot chocolate" station filled with booze, whipped cream and all the toppings you could think of, providing endless entertainment for our guests.

Pumpkin Patch Wedding

Tamsin & Simon described their pumpkin patch wedding as rustic, autumnal, and timeless. They wanted their styling to reflect the season with some alternative elements. They chose black candles, and tiny pumpkins as table numbers, with handmade little stars everywhere! The couple had a lot of secondhand and DIY decor throughout the whole day. The wedding reception really got the party started with shots and speech bingo. The meal finished with Simon challenging Tamsin to a drinking contest! The night was full of excitement, with glow sticks, temporary tattoos, and a 5-piece band with saxophone. One thing we definitely approve of is the old-school R&B hour before the band came on with THAT champagne tower!

Wyresdale Park

From the moment Tamsin & Simon stepped foot on the beautiful Wyresdale Park in Lancashire, they knew that it was going to be the venue for their dream pumpkin patch wedding. With its stunning natural beauty, charming atmosphere, and breathtaking views, Wyresdale Park is the perfect setting for a wedding. The festivities kicked off the day before the wedding with the girls heading to the onsite spa and the boys heading to the local pub. That night, friends and family gathered for food and drinks followed by a thrilling game of manhunt in the woodland estate, getting everyone pumped up for the big day ahead. The guests then settled into their cosy yurts where they could admire the views and peaceful atmosphere.

Some advice would be to have speeches after food always, that way your caterer doesn't have to worry about speeches running over, people aren't hungry and everyone is a little drunker so speeches are funnier. Don't go traditional and swap your ceremony seating! Have it so you are facing your family and your other half is facing his. Always play upbeat music straight after food to make sure people don't get tired! Start your planning early and set deadlines. Ask for help! Be ruthless with your guest list.

Tamsin & Simon

Here are the five signs you will need for your wedding day to help things run smoothly!
