Jessie & Jonty

Bride & Groom - - CONTENTS -

Jessie and Jonty pledged their love and com­mit­ment to each other in a gor­geous wed­ding with a rus­tic bo­hemian theme. Jessie tells us more…

Our wed­ding was a team ef­fort; my dad helped to craft our sig­nage, my brides­maids helped to cre­ate our dec­o­ra­tions, and Jonty, his groomsmen and par­ents set ev­ery­thing up with the as­sis­tance of Casey from The Heir­loom.

Jonty and I ex­changed vows that we had writ­ten for each other, with tears of joy and laugh­ter. We then joined our guests for a pic­nic-style af­ter­noon tea.

While we were hav­ing our pho­tos, our guests were en­ter­tained with games of cricket, gi­ant Jenga and ten­nis; and in­side they could take self­ies with a Po­laroid cam­era, which were then pegged up on string with a mes­sage for us.

At our re­cep­tion the white-washed ta­bles were dressed with burlap run­ners, glass gob­lets, coloured bot­tles with loosely ar­ranged wild flow­ers and in­di­vid­u­ally named and tie-dyed place set­tings. Gold cut­lery and can­de­labras gave a ro­man­tic feel to it all, along with light bulb pen­dants made by Jonty.

We shared a feast of rus­tic-style spitroasted meats and salad, fol­lowed by speeches, the cake and wine. Dessert was a self-ser­vice ice-cream bar with home­made top­pings. An old ice-filled bath­tub kept guests’ drinks cool while we danced the night away un­der the stars.
