Phew…I made it to the other side of thirty unharmed. I only had a minor panic the evening before my birthday. All of a sudden the wedding seems very close. We finally ordered our invitations, and they will be winging their way to friends and family ASAP. We decided to get them printed with moo.com again, who I have to say have been great. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The invitations look so super high quality. I will show you all the designs next month because I don’t want to spoil the surprise for our guests.
Hello you lovely ‘I’m-just-going-to-peruse-RMW-on-my-lunchbreak’ lot! Another post in the midst of another panic. This time, I thought it would be a great idea to start a new job in the weeks/months leading up to my wedding. Great for my career…not so good for my stress levels. Combine all the other elements of wedding planning, 30ths, hen dos, other weddings… well needless to say *stressed emoji face*. However as mentioned in my last post, I am having a lovely time going through it all!
Today I’m going to be telling you a little bit about our venue.
Court Farm is a 16th Century farmhouse set in ten acres of grounds. A lovingly restored farm house just outside of Bath, it’s an absolutely beautiful, contemporary (yet rustic), comfortable home and business. I feel deadly excited to spend my wedding weekend there. The extended farm house has enough space for both of our families to be able to spend a joyous long weekend together. My family don’t really ‘do’ quiet and reflective, we’re a pretty rowdy bunch, but I’m looking forward to some personal (hungover) moments together the day after.
On the day of our wedding the outdoor space will be the main attraction. A marquee is going to be attached to the back of the barn to extend out to a dining area, leaving the main barn space free for dancing and a bar. This is were all my hard crafty work comes in. In my head it’s decked out in all the Pinterest ideas ever (and looks good) but what is it that Coco Chanel said…”simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”. I will need to channel some Chanel where decorating is concerned or I might get a bit carried away. Or not, haha.
