As soon as I arrived at Weston Court Farm - Kate's family home, I was blown away, not only by the size of the marquee but the detail & hard work that had gone into the day. Both families are farmers so the theme was very rustic but stylish with incredible floral bouquets by Issy & Bella, hanging from the ceiling & decorating almost everywhere in sight - including the church. Wellington Boots were the main symbol of the day which of course is very apt! They were used as signs & painted on various things including a cute little picture on the order of service & the menus. I especially loved the miniature boot on the top table filled with flowers! I also loved how personal the wedding was as most of the work had been done by the family; & James was very pleased he had managed to get his families old Land Rover working to be a centre piece for the wedding!
The ceremony was at the medieval Pembridge Church in Herefordshire which is spectacular & also has a 13th century detached bell tower. A lot of the village were waiting outside to greet Kate as she walked up the path into the ceremony which had 200 awaiting guests inside. It really was something very special! After the ceremony was the longest confetti line EVER & then a quick trip back to the farm for delicious canapés & drinks by Field to Fork catering (who were superb). Once the main meal & speeches were done, around another 100 guests arrived for the evening celebrations. I couldn't believe the amount of people & the atmosphere was amazing!
Kate & James mainly wanted natural photos, as like most people tell me, they aren't too comfortable in front of the camera. Here's a few images from their day, which was such a pleasure being a part of & I think it's now one of my favourites!
