The thing about blogs is you can share all kinds of news in real time, whenever you life. This news, however, has been under wraps for the past 9 months, and Mr Rigg and I haven’t been able to share it with anyone until today. One month from today, our wedding is going to be featured in the July 2012 issue of Country Living magazine!
I’m not even sure where to begin in telling you how excited I am about the whole thing – where do I begin?! I have been an avid Country Living reader since we bought our own house and I always enjoy the beautiful ideas and inspiration that they share, as well as the pieces on small rural businesses. To think that our wedding will now be part of that tradition is so amazing!
Today’s photos are some of my favourite from our wedding and I’m really excited to be sharing them with you all. After the church ceremony and ice cream outside, Nick and I left across the field on a simple pony and carriage, which took us down the country lanes for a short while just the two of us. My mom is solely responsible for organising this – as a teacher in the village primary school she knows a lot of local people, and John Ward who took us out in his pony and carriage is one of them. I’ve had a love …Read more
It is terrible to toot your own trumpet, but this is one of the ideas that we had for our wedding that I was so pleased with. Nick and I love our food and love supporting local producers, so we always knew this was going to be woven throughout our wedding. There were moments we worried we might be overfeeding people! We have a wonderful local farm to where we live in Cheshire that makes its own ice cream – we practically live off the stuff. Somehow we wanted to incorporate this into our wedding day, and the only place …Read more
When you’re heavily involved in planning, organising, and making your own wedding there are so many details to consider. I found it was quite easy to get wrapped up in whether or not I should wind ivy inside the tealight lanterns on the dinner tables (ran out of time/forgot in the end!) and other details, without putting as much thought into our ceremony. And however beautiful, pretty, rustic, handmade we want to create our weddings, however great that need for attention to small details, there wouldn’t be all that if we weren’t getting married. I think partly I put off …Read more
I’m excited to be back on track with sharing the full details of our wedding day – it is so lovely to hear that people are enjoying hearing the trials and tribulations of how it all came to be. So with church decked out with frothy cow parsley, slender young hornbeams, country roses and lit only by candlelight, the only thing missing was me. The bride. It’s been mentioned before, but I was 20 minutes late to my wedding.

As voted for by you, I am moving onto the flowers in the church before continuing with our wedding ceremony. I’m excited to share this, because I just loved how the church looked, it was more than I could have dreamed of and we did it ourselves. If this is your first visit to the blog you can catch up on all the details so far from our wedding here. Mark Tattersall Photography I’ve decided to show you photos of how the church looked and then go back to how we did after. That way I get to show off …Read more
It feels like a while since I posted the last installment of our wedding, and I feel rather ashamed that I’m taking so long and dragging it out – you all must be bored of hearing about it by now. If readers, you’d like it shorter and snappier, please tell me. One of the loveliest parts of our wedding, is that my parents house (where we had afternoon tea and the reception would be held) is at the end of the church path. This meant, everyone could walk, myself included – no fancy vintage cars frothy with ribbons or stretch …Read more
