Alice and Steven tied the knot in the beautiful village of Oundle where they both grew up. Choosing their school chapel for the ceremony and Alice’s parent’s working farm for the reception, the day was incredibly personal and filled with homespun charm.
“Our wedding was going to be one big party” says Alice. “We wanted good wine and great food”.
Each table shared a sirloin beef carvery, accompanied by summertime salads that were made with as many local ingredients as possible. An evening Hog roast was served amongst the cows and hay bales whilst guests danced all night long to an incredible band.
Alice and Steven chose a relaxed and undone style for their flowers and huge burlap curtains were strewn across the room. The groom even built his own bar! Giant balloons brought balance to the vastness of the space and each table was styled to perfection.
“We loved the organic, homely feel every part of our wedding had, from the bespoke invitations ringed with garlands of flowers, to the mason jar sweet favours, wild flower planters, and local food and ales we served. As we had the reception in a barn previously used to store animals and grain, it was a huge, communal DIY effort. We couldn’t have asked for more, and the day itself was everything we’d hoped it would be – incredible fun!”
