Down to earth, individual
DESCRIPTION OF THE WEDDING DAY:
We decided to elope and planned it a year before. I have no idea how we kept it secret for so long! The day was perfect, we woke up together and went into the local town to get my hair and make up done. This is also when we sent out our announcement cards so that people would find out the next day, leaving the evening totally stress free. The venue we chose was absolutely perfect, very pretty. We took our two pugs and stayed in a little cottage on the grounds.
After having my hair and makeup done by some lovely ladies we headed back and got ready together, no stress! We then walked to the barn, where we were married, together. The ceremony was lovely, so intimate and personal. We had our lovely photographer and a member of staff from The Green as our witnesses.
Following the ceremony we had some photos taken by Mark, he made us feel so comfortable! We chose to marry quite late in the day and so there wasn’t much daylight but we still got some incredible photographs.
We then went back to our cottage, changed out of our wedding clothes and soon after a chef came over to cook us a three course meal. He was absolutely fantastic and made us the best food we’ve ever tasted!
After the chef left we just chilled out, played some battleships and watched Netflix.
All in all it was a perfect day and night.
