Having gone to school with Matt, a dear friend, this was a super special one for me. I couldn’t be more happy for him and his “dream girl” Clare who looked so frickin beautiful, it was a joy to capture this wonderful and sunny occasion.
All the personal touches, meant that they created an occasion that they could really and truly enjoy, relax and be themselves in. Home grown flowers from their allotment in Bristol, their cherished dog Anne as the ring bearer, the "hymns" were classic pop songs including Lennon's "All You Need Is Love" and they finished the evening with Matt taking to the DJ decks with his wife, (A hobby that I remember well during our school and uni days). and finishing the evening with Matt taking to the DJ decks with his wife (A hobby that I remember well during our school and uni days).
The venue, Huntstille, is idillic. Lizzie & Jon the owners are so relaxed, warm and welcoming and the running organic farm was the perfect setting for Clare and Matt who I took to the vegetable patch for some photos….of course :) The set up means around 40 of the guests can stay for the whole weekend in various rooms, gypsy caravans and huts which adds to the relaxed vibes.
My sister and hubby actually got married their 5 years ago and I distinctly remember it feeling like the the best house party EVER by the time the dancing came which I felt again whilst sipping some bubbles on a big couch in the sitting room after I’d clock off.
