They had decorated the village hall delightfully and showed how wonderful a Calverleigh wedding can be! I feel their wedding revealed that with a little hard work why spend a lot of money on a wedding venue when you’re local village hall can be just as brilliant.
Kate and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents house and had a great makeup artist as well as the wonderful Laura Bukin as their hair dresser. The bridesmaids wore navy Coast lace dresses with nude heels. Her mum wore a stunning red lace dress from Hobbs that was actually very similar at the top to Kate’s dress, this worked really well and looked terrific in the photos. Kate’s dress was lace at the top with 1/2 length sleeves, I loved this as I rarely see sleeves anymore.
Amy (as always!) popped off to the Groom and his men, this time at the local Pub. They were in navy suits with brown shoes – (My favourite outfits for the men to wear at a wedding! – Even better if it’s only waistcoats!)
The ceremony was very fitting with the theme of the day, the church decorated in daffodils and tulips with a shorter service than normal which made the day nice and relaxed.
After the ceremony they had drinks in a marquee on the green between the church and hall.
The grounds surrounding the Hall and Church are utterly beautiful, and there is an appealing path which was lined with trees and daffodils.
They had a picnic for there meal which worked really well with the food in a basket for each table. For deserts there had been a ‘bake-off’ competition that all the guests participated in, not only a great way to save money but also a bit of fun for the day too!
The band in the evening were called Mammoth and had a really fun vibe about them.
We forgot to get a selfie of us at this wedding so you’re just going to have to imagine that we looked great!
Emily & Amy
