Real Weddings: Gingham Country Charm

Wow what a weekend! Yesterday was the wedding of Megan and Matt at Duncton Village Hall in Sussex and I'd been looking forward to it for months!

The couple came to me back in September looking for someone to help coordinate their day and I was lucky enough to have them choose me. At the time, Megan had just left working at the Little Venice Cake Company and had since started to produce her own beautiful cake creations with a very distinct country charm-she loves her bunting! So watch this space as I expect great things from her...

Megan designed their theme around a relaxed, country fete with soft green and duck egg yellow, hand picked country flowers and a communal style banquet with a BBQ. As an incredibly creative bride, Megan set to work many months before hand sewing all the bunting, bridesmaids dresses (yellow gingham summer dresses) and making their stunning wedding cake. 

As the reception was held in a village hall after their beautiful ceremony at Arundel Town Hall, the venue provided a complete blank canvas on which to project their perfect day, set in the rolling hills of Sussex. Guests were treated to a BBQ breakfast with a selection of summer vegetables and boozy trifles (complete with sparklers) for dessert and were accompanied by Acoustic Jass, a fantastic jazz quartet. Later in the evening the Sussex Pistols ceilidh band got guests doesy-doeing as dusk began to settle. 

Thought I'd treat you to some of the shots I took before we got into full swing. It was a really gorgeous day and an absolute pleasure to work on. I'll be back with the official pics in a few weeks...

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Collins!
