Elizabeth & William
Farmers Elizabeth and William held their wedding reception at the bride’s family farm on the 4th July 2015
Home-made country casual was the theme for our farm wedding. Bride and groom arrived to the church in Land Rovers, while guests came by tractor and trailer.
We decorated the lambing shed with hessian swags, fairy lights, hay bales, filled cattle feeders and churns with flowers.
We had posh toilets from Royle Flush, and a bar made from potato boxes.
Tables were decorated using milk bottles from Will’s old dairy, and Grampy’s old tractor even made an appearance.
We hung framed pictures of our parents and grandparents on a tree, to remind us of those who couldn’t be with us.
I wore a white lace bodice with a flowing full length skirt. Will wore a traditional morning suit with a yellow tie to match the bridesmaid’s gowns.
Food was courtesy of Beetroot Catering and produce from our own farm shop, Scald End.
Real ale was on tap, the barrels laying on old cattle mangers.
We made a ‘naked’ cake with fresh fruit and butter icing, topped off with a cow bride and groom.
However, the cake was leaning so Will decided to cut the cake first to save any embarrassing land slide cake action!
This is when we realised we didn’t have a knife, so Will used a pen knife in his pocket that he had been using on the farm earlier that day!
A farm trailer provided a stage for the band ‘Cover Your Tracks’. The dance floor was brimming and our DJ, Ronnie Tannis, kept the party going all night.
The sunset was a perfect end to the day. Michelle Woods, our photographer, managed to get the most beautiful photos of us with our cattle, dogs and horses.
Michelle made us feel incredibly relaxed. It was a day we will cherish forever.
