3 weddings. 8 days. 11 Counties. 1,043 miles. All things considered I should have been ready for the knackers yard today and yet I felt totally invigorated. A good job too, because this was one wedding to be fired up for. Mind you, isn’t every wedding??? Today I am thrilled to share with you the wedding photographs at Moreves Barn of the charming Sophie and Darren. Darren proposed to Sophie a little over a year ago at Latitude in Suffolk. Being keen festival goers, Sophie & Darren came up with the genius idea of a festival themed wedding, and thus it was dubbed The Isle of Wedding Festival. The amount of thought and planning that went into the art direction today was simply staggering. The tables were each named after a festival or gig that Sophie & Darren had been to, with each guest given a specially designed ‘mix tape’ cd that Darren had made with his own fair hands!! The festival theme continued with each guest given a ‘guest pass’ ticket to wear around their neck. There was also a candy floss machine, face painting and of course being a festival there had to be wellies….kiddy versions, bright pink and filled with flowers. Milk churns were used as vases in the church and milk bottles were filled with country flowers on the tables and there were home made cup cakes which tasted as good as they looked. There was so much detail that I am afraid my photos don’t really do it justice. It was a really super day and I have to say that I loved Sophie & Darren’s idea for replacing the guest book with a wedding guest bench…..a snow board which every guest signed which will eventually be turned into a bench. Loved that! To top things off, Sophie & Darren had the most sublime racing green soft top Austin Healey with tin cans attached the back. A flawless day from beginning to end. Thank you Sophie and Darren for making me feel so welcome and for so many amazing memories. Happy viewing!
P.S. I forgot to mention that Moreves Barn is such a gorgeous venue. Bang in the middle of rural Suffolk and surrounded by huge open skies and fields, it’s such a fabulous setting for anyone thinking of having a country wedding. Lovely people, delicious food and a great setting for rustic photos. To the rear of the venue is the most stunning wild flower meadow which the venue owners had planted themselves!!! It is breathtakingly beautiful and once again, my photos don’t do it justice. And while I was shooting the photos of Sophie & Darren in the meadow I could hear this tiny little voice squeak squeaking at me and I looked down to see a day old chick all alone at my feet. Darren picked it up in a bid to try and save it only to be told by the venue owner that the chick was a baby pheasant who’d obviously managed to get separated from it’s Mum and so the day old bird chick was returned to the meadow from whence it came. Soooo cute! By the way, this wedding was featured on Rock My Wedding.
