An English, Yorkshire Farm Wedding

After their Church of England ceremony, the newlyweds, as well as their guests, traveled to Sarah's uncle's farm for a colorful, relaxed, and joyful knees-up inside light and spacious marquee.

 

Their day was built with a eucalyptus green hue running through it, with pops of color in the seasonal floral decorations and bunting that fluttered within the wind.

"I loved the detailed beading onto it; the look was really beautiful. The shape was amazing also it made me feel grateful. I liked how it would be a bit vintage in fashion too so was built with a timeless element into it. I loved the body of the dress. It was comfy too that was perfect for dancing afterward!"

The bride had perfectly matching, sage bridesmaid dresses for the bridesmaids, that they wore with their very own shoes as well as their hair swept up using their faces.

The groom considered sourcing his eucalyptus green tie, which was set off perfectly by his fresh white shirt and deep blue suit from via in Derby.

"His best man Alex Steed would be a friend from university. He wore the same suit as Tom and, combined with the other immediate members of the family, wore a tie from Mrs. Bow Tie within the same eucalyptus green. They also custom-made a mini bowtie for the nephew Oscar."

After meeting on the first trip to Durham University, the pair swiftly became a couple and also got engaged on the return visit to the city in 2018.

"We were in the same corridor within our college halls. It took a couple of months for us to get to know one another and by the finish of newbie were a few. Tom was required back to Durham almost eight years later to propose inside a snowstorm (the Beast in the East) on the bench overlooking the city and delightful Durham Cathedral. We were engaged for sixteen months before the wedding."

"All the church flowers and table settings were arranged by me, my mum along with a team of helpers in the village. The flowers were purchased from a local flower market. All the eucalyptus for decorating the marquee poles and also the base of all of the flower arrangements were obtained from a tree in my parents’ garden and all sorts of the ivy too. All the sweet peas and lavender was grown inside a friend's garden."

The couple decided on a classic, Pachelbel's 'Canon In D', played around the organ for that processional. The bride walked on the aisle together with her father, with bridesmaids in front and behind her.

The couple was keen to possess Yorkshire and Derbyshire influences running with the wedding breakfast that was catered.

"We chose them because they were focused on using local produce and thus flexible with what they could perform the whole way with the process. They were excellent. We were built with a Yorkshire sharing board to begin (meats, bread, cheeses), then feather blade of beef then champagne and strawberry cheesecake. It was delicious. My mum made some chocolate truffles to choose the tea and coffee."

"We didn't want anything not fast enough or smoochy so 'Lovely Day' hit an ideal balance of meaning and being able to dance too!"

"Having everyone you like most within the same place is special. I think one of the best moments was afterward at night, once the dance floor was filled with people merrily dancing. Just looking around and seeing everyone using a great time was something we will never forget."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"Spend your hard-earned money on what you believe your guests will love and remember."

"Don't try to do an excessive amount of yourself around the day. Everyone, you will see is willing to muck in and help with whatever you ask them."

"We were so grateful for the family and friends' resourcefulness and amount of time in helping out around the day."
