If you have read our 2022 wedding trend predictions (if you haven't then you need to!) you will know that outdoor dancefloors are going to be a total favourite this year at weddings, however, this couple were ahead of the game! An intimate celebration with 30 of their nearest and dearest and an outdoor dancefloor at the beautiful Cripps Barn. Relaxed florals, dinner suits and chilled vibes were the order of the day. The bride looked stunning in the Riley dress Made With Love.  A deep lace V back and Watteau train teamed with the curly pinned updo were the perfect combination for a knockout look!

'Riley' dress from Made With Love Bridal

For us, it was date number four, our original one being August 2020. Although we never would have planned a smaller wedding (our original guest list was over 100) we wouldn't change a thing. The entire day was so relaxed, we were just so grateful and happy that we could finally get married and have our absolute closest friends and family with us to celebrate.

We wanted our day to be filled with all our favourite things, good food, good drinks and the best people. Think sunny days with beers in the garden, cocktails at sunset and chilled music kind of vibes. We really like the contrast of the boys in dinner suits and the Riley dress Made With Love Bridal against the Cripps background and then relaxed florals to bring it all together. We both wanted the day to be an extension of our favourite days together and it was just that.

First look for bride and groom at Cripps Barn wedding

Josh and I did a 'first look', when I arrived at Cripps he came out to meet me before I walked down the aisle, Harry and Dan caught the whole thing and it was so nice to have a little moment together before we said our vows. We also both loved the outdoor dance floor, we were lucky with the weather and had our first dance on the terrace, all of our wedding party joined in too. It was super special to share that moment with them all.
