Tor the Bride:
We got engaged about a year before we got married so didn’t have much time to make sure everything was booked! Luckily, we knew we wanted to get married in the village where Tor was brought up (Wighton, Norfolk) so booking the church there was a big priority. As Tor has lived in the village since she was three, one of the local farmers and great friends lent her their field so that we could have a marquee installed on there. One of the best elements of the day was that Nick drove a tractor from the church to the marquee venue with him and Tor on! It was a big surprise for the guests and a lot of fun.
Firstly, the food was an incredibly important part of our day and we chose Running Duck Catering
because their professionalism and attention to detail was second to none! We wanted to rely on local ingredients to make our surroundings come to life (Wighton is just 2 miles from the stunning North Norfolk coast). Our cake was made by The Rose Bush
, who is Nick’s sister – and it was the perfect multi-tiered lemon sponge; incredibly light and all the guests were desperate for seconds!
Another key part of the day which was of paramount importance to us (especially Tor!) were the flowers. Luckily, one of Tor’s bridesmaids Alice is a florist in London (@alicestrangeflowers
) so Alice created the bouquets, button holes and amazing pew ends in Wighton church. Lea and her team from Darling Buds Flowers
in Norfolk made the church and reception stunning with flower arches, an amazing floral boat and stunning table centres. We wanted to create a wild flower look and feel with local herbs and flowers like rosemary, sea lavender and thistles to continue the nod to the seaside.
The Wedding Party
This coastal theme continued through to the colour scheme. The bridesmaids’ dresses (Rewritten
) and usher’s ties (Beaufort & Blake
) were a marine blue and all of the table centres included a scallop shell.
