Hallo all! Today on the blog I have Donna & Jimmy’s lovely, chilled, festival style wedding for you. And it was ace.
Donna fell in love with the grand ruins at Old Wardour (and who can blame her – it is a beautiful building, filled with places to explore and take pictures. It was my first time there, and I kind of fell for it too). They wanted somewhere for their reception that was closer to their home, but which had a relaxed & homely feel in counter to the grandiose castle they were married in, so she booked the stunning Riverside Cottage in Bransbury, and bedecked it with tipis, a dancefloor, a music stage, and some pretty darn stunning vintage vehicles (including an excellent Wolseley Six Police car (info at firstname.lastname@example.org) to take them to the ceremony because, as Donna put it, she was always a bit of a tearaway!). Add into the mix a lovely set of family & friends, a delicious South African feast from the brilliant (and it must be said, absurdly good looking) team from Nyama Catering, and Voila! A mini-festival and a day to remember. Donna did so much herself to make it look beautiful, and she did a sterling job – from setting the tipi to designing invitations & signing boards. And their passion for music was evident throughout the day, from AK’s beautiful song during the service, to their choice of fantastic performers in the evening (Echotape & Dave McPherson) Thank you so much for having me there Jimmy & Donna, and your lovely families – I really enjoyed myself. xx
