Re­becca & Aaron

Bride & Groom - - CONTENTS -

Af­ter a cer­e­mony at a quaint in­ner-city church, Re­becca and Aaron cel­e­brated at a beau­ti­ful sum­mer gar­den re­cep­tion. Re­becca tells us more…

The cer­e­mony painted the per­fect pic­ture of Aaron and I as a cou­ple; we were so fo­cused on each other, and the church was burst­ing with love and emo­tion! We also had a lot of fam­ily mem­bers in­volved, which was ex­tra spe­cial for us.

Be­cause it was a sum­mer wed­ding, we de­cided to have a Mr Whippy truck visit af­ter the cer­e­mony. It was a great chance for us and our guests to min­gle over ice cream, and with lim­ited num­bers at the re­cep­tion, it al­lowed for ev­ery­one to be in­cluded in some way.

Our re­cep­tion was held in a mar­quee at the pic­turesque High­wic House. We had a lot of sup­port and help from our fam­i­lies in plan­ning our day. My tal­ented fa­ther cre­ated and painted the flo­ral design on our in­vites, and stick­ing with our French coun­try/gar­den theme, he also hand scribed the guests’ place names on brown craft pa­per tags. Each guest ta­ble was as­signed the name of a herb, with the as­so­ci­ated plant dis­played in ter­ra­cotta pots. By the end of the evening, the mar­quee looked mag­i­cal as it glowed be­neath the stars.

Our wed­ding day was truly blessed with love, fam­ily and friends, and it’s a day we will never for­get!
