Hope & Sam
Hope and Sam wanted a small, intimate celebration that reflected their personalities. The country setting was perfect for their special day. Hope tells us more about their wedding…
A first-look photo shoot meant Sam and I could spend as much time with our guests as possible, mingling and enjoying cocktail hour, while an acoustic musician entertained everyone.
Our ceremony had a rustic country feel, with hay bale seating. This was carried through to the table centrepieces in the barn reception venue – vintage wooden cheese boxes filled with unstructured seasonal blooms grown by a local florist.
We decided to have a wishing well, but wanted something a bit different. I found a vintage desk and chair, which worked perfectly and we now treasure as a keepsake.
We wanted to set the tone for a fun day right from the start so welcomed our guests with a humorous card letting them know the order of festivities, and also had cards for guests to fill in during dinner, which made a great keepsake.
The band played outside into the wee hours under fairy lights beside the outdoor fireplace – it was incredibly romantic and joyful.
Our wedding was everything we dreamed it would be: full of fun, laughter, dancing and celebrating.
