Our Wedding at Colehayes Park

Ok, so i really should have written this post a long time ago, but life got in the way! I also planned to not add too many photos, but our photographer Chris Barber did such a beautiful job i find it impossible to narrow down any more than this! 
We got married in August 2014 at Colehayes Park, Devon. We had the big house for the whole weekend, so went to town decorating with lots of little touches (and the help of wonderful friends and family).

My clever dad made us these stunning six foot tall light up letters. We had planned to get married in the garden, but on the day it literally poured with rain, so these made an amazing backdrop for the ceremony!

 I spent many happy hours hand sewing this sparkly headpiece, to wear with my mums veil. I hope to pass it down as a family heirloom.


 Instead of hymns, the bridesmaids led everyone in a rendition of 'We Go Together' from Grease, complete with impromptu hand jive.

 Our parents and grandparents wedding photos proudly on display, showing us how it's done!

I really enjoyed designing all the printed bits for the wedding. Instead of a guest book we gave each guest these cards on which they could share their memories of the day, draw us a picture, and give us their tips for a long and happy marriage. We got some very funny answers! 
The favours were fortune cookies in little chevron bags, with mini badges that said things like 'kiss me quick', 'team R', 'team H', and 'Hooray!'

 Some of the books on the tables contained hidden treasure....

 My mum and i made the cake in the days leading up to the wedding.

A board of local cheeses for the evening feast - look at the excitement on the guests faces!

Phew, if you made it all the way to the end, well done! And if you haven't had enough yet, here's a short video a friend of ours made of the day...
