It's been a whirlwind month or so. Literally the day after this wedding I sped off to the South of France so I'm very behind on blogging at the moment!
The UK experienced a great start to the Summer with unusually gorgeous and hot weather at beginning of June. So Kevan and Laura's WedFest at High Billinghurst Farm near Dunsfold was on a glorious day! These musical globe trotters put their heart and soul into their wedding day. There was fantastic attention to detail from the table plans and design of the venue to the care of loved ones.
Laura and Kevan had their wedding ceremony in a small woodland adjacent to their wedding reception area. The giant teepee looked amazing. On top of that bell tents were set up for guests to sleep in overnight, music stages and a fire pit.
It was the first time the woodland had been used for a ceremony and it provided a stunning canopy and some much needed protection from the sun and heat of the day (unfortunately I'm not a hot weather person!). To me it felt ethereal and as if we were in a Midsummer Night's Dream!
One of the best parts of my job is getting to share couple's love stories on the day - sometimes wedding guests aren't even aware of many details so it can come as a lovely surprise! Laura and Kevan met at their uni laundrette! And having travelled the world they returned to the UK where Kev proposed....in a beach hut on Brighton Beach! I love how Kevan told me he now views the world map as wine regions thanks to Laura's expertise and he's also learnt some seriously impressive cleaning skills from Laura too!
After the ceremony guests processed back to the teepee for bubbly, games, fabulous music and food. The set up looked stunning - every wedding I've had the honour of helping with at this venue has been different.
Congratulations Laura and Kevan! It was such a pleasure to work with you and I wish you well on your new journey together!
