This Saturday we worked at such a lovely wedding, everything went so well and looked so good! There was a vintage/up-cycled theme to this wedding which is the kind of thing we love. Sometimes when a wedding follows this theme it can be a bit too girly and you end up feeling a little sorry for the groom but this couple got it spot on! The barn itself is quite small and is perfect for shabby chic weddings, as you can see in the photo.
They had pretty bunting all around the barn which is so easy to make yourself and looks really good, you can use whatever fabric you want to! Bunting is a really good way to decorate a wedding without spending loads of money; you can buy it pre-made quite cheaply, but it’s cheaper to make yourself! The rafters provide a really good place to hang lights and other decorations too. This couple opted for big bulbed string lights that gave off a really nice ambience during the meal and evening entertainment.
We loooved the tables. They were set up really differently and the flowers were the best we’d seen yet! They were meadow flowers and grasses in a painted tin jug which looked really natural. Everything on the table was rustic and basic which all together looked perfect! This was the first time we’d seen the cutlery all together in a vessel rather than laid out on the table which made the tables looked much more tidy and added to the rustic feel, we loved it!
The cutlery was great for the hog roast buffet we served, the chefs made a selection of salads including a pea and feta salad which always goes down well! We’re pretty certain there were a few who had thirds…(our kind of people!).
The vintage theme carried on throughout the wedding – even during reception drinks! They had what looked like a massive sweetie jar with a tap built into it filled with their chosen cocktail which we made with cloudy lemonade and vodka, it looked so good!
The couple even worked their shabby chic magic into their dessert. Rather than having a wedding cake, they asked some guests to bake and create their signature puds. There were big rustic meringues, sponges full to the brim with cream and jam and chunky rocky road slices. Our mouths were watering.
All in all, a great wedding!
