What Made Our Day Unique
It was important to us to have a personal ceremony, telling our story, which Kim did brilliantly. Lucy’s mum and one of her close friends had written poems to read and the music was sung/ accompanied by close friends too. Bex sang ‘Songbird’ as Lucy walked down the aisle and Becky sung ‘Stand by Me’ as our wedding rings were passed around the guests making their way to us before we exchanged them. We read our vows together which we had wri?en one day at the beach.
Vegan WeddingThe outdoor ceremony was followed by a rustic barn dinner under a romantic canopy of fairy lights and drapes, where a vegan wedding breakfast was served to the guests. The plant-based menu was only a small part of the sustainable day, recycled products, wildflowers & homemade decor to name a few, were all eco-friendly aspects incorporated into the celebration. A day full of heart and soul - quite literally as the guests danced the evening away to the brilliant band - The Soul Strutters - who kept the dancefloor full all night!
Inspiration & Styling
We love festivals and got engaged at Glastonbury a couple of years before the wedding. We wanted to create some of the ‘feeling’ that we love of being at a festival – being outdoors, relaxed, sharing food, good music, silliness and opportunities to talk to people you don’t already know. We encouraged guests to camp with us and to join in with yoga, sea swimming, games and a hangover BBQ. The Barn is set in a such a beautiful coastal location, we had the sea as our backdrop and only really added wildflowers arranged by family and friends to complement it.
If you are a couple of festival lovers too and want some more inspiration as to how you can incorporate this into your big day (or days in this case!) then we have so much more where this came from, just take a look at this festival wedding with naked tipi!
