Freya and Will had their ceremony at Sacred Heart Church in Petworth. Followed by a reception in Bartholomew Barn in Kirdford, West Sussex. Bartholomew Barn is a beautiful venue and really allowed for a relaxed atmosphere with several different gardens dotted around for guests to enjoy. At the front of the barn, Freya and Will had set up lawn games, which went down beautifully in the setting sun. It proved difficult to get everyone to come back into the barn for the first dance with the temptation of croquet.
Freya was bridesmaid at Hannah and Dave’s London wedding. Hannah was also head bridesmaid, it was lovely to see so many familiar faces. I love the getting ready part of the day, I get to really know everyone and feel the excitement build. This was particularly lovely, the beautiful weather meant make-up was done outside. And I got to see the much lusted after Geri Spice Girls photo Freya was gifted by her bridesmaids. Do you remember this? I collected those photos and that was the one everyone wanted!
The couple held a bake-off competition. It was pretty serious and even included ballots to make sure everyone could vote for their favourites. While I really don’t think it’s a dessert unless it’s chocolate, the lemon drizzle got my vote after some serious lobbying!
I was absolutely in love with the floral theme of this wedding. The bridesmaids dresses were just gorgeous and the flowers in Freya and her bridesmaids hair were just a beautiful touch. The table-settings were, again, scattered with garden items. The place settings featured lovely plant cuttings and the favours were seeds. Each table was representative of a particular year in their relationship with the table numbers hooked over wine bottle candelabras.
Oh and this may be one of my favourite confetti shots, I absolutely loved how bright the confetti was!
