Louise and Andrew’s cosy winter wedding at River Cottage with spring inspired bouquet and dapper groomsmen
We might be headed into summer but this cosy winter wedding held at River Cottage in Devon reminds us of all that is great about a winter wedding done well. Louise and Andrew had an intimate wedding with just 50 of their friends and family, with excellent local food (obviously!) and seasonal touches that embraced the farm venue. I also particularly love the attention they put in for the babies and children at this wedding – some great ideas. Plus gorgeous photography from Larissa Joice who we’ve featured previously here.
Over to Louise to tell us more…
A Cosy Winter Wedding at River Cottage
Claire and George’s country farm wedding with tractor transport, hay bale seating and pink floral bridesmaids dresses
Our Valentine’s Day Real Wedding for 2017 is just gorgeous. You’re certain to love the couple and their particularly personal country farm wedding, and I’m sure your heart will melt when you see the photographs of their little boy giving a speech at the reception. Adorable.
Groom George is from an agricultural background and as such, the couple decided that there was only one way they could plan their big day. Tractors, bunting, hay bales, a tractor wheel seating plan, straw dollies and wellies filled with flowers.
Bride Claire got in touch to share their day with us after being inspired by our site so I’ll hand over to her to give us the details…
Tim and Sarah’s autumn barn wedding on a rustic Kent farm with gold pumpkins, twinkly lights and a tweed suit
Today’s relaxed autumn barn wedding perfectly showcases the benefits of using seasonal and local produce and suppliers within your big day. I am sure we all love seeing what each new season brings, and it is so lovely to see when a wedding truly embraces the season they fall in.
Tim and Sarah’s wedding does just that, featuring the most stunning dahlias, quirky transport, a fire pit, a groom in tweed, a bride in wellies, and some copper pumpkins – because what autumn wedding wouldn’t be complete without a few for good measure.
Tim and Sarah, 17th October 2015
Tim and Sarah were married on an autumn’s day in the gorgeous barn at The House Meadow at Worsenden Farm surrounded by their friends and family. The whole day was perfectly captured by the wonderful TNWC Recommended Supplier Livvy Hukins Photography. To accompany the beautiful images it would only be fair for us to now pass you over to the beautiful bride Sarah to tell you a little bit more about their big day…
A bit of inspiration for accessorising your groom-to-be – why not jazz up your buttonholes by having them as small floral hearts rather than the standard clutch of flowers and foliage? I think this idea is really fun, and would be a great twist on buttonholes for a winter wedding in particular…but maybe that’s because of that gorgeous brown tweed suit.
Have you seen any other fun alternatives to buttonholes? Are you planning to do something a bit different?
I’ve been meaning to share snippets of this stunning and unique wedding dress (and wedding) with you all for a while, but am only just getting round to it. This utterly incredible dress was handmade from tweed and wool by the bride.
I adore weddings that reflect the seasons and the places where people marry, so this wedding is so beautiful to me in so many ways.
