Lauren & Rob / Wedding

I have such a special wedding to share with you. Lauren & Rob had what they called a 'DIY' wedding and so many of their friends and family had a hand in making it such a wonderful and unique day. When Lauren sent me an email detailing how everyone had contributed it gave me such a warm feeling hearing all the time, effort and love everyone had put in and that feeling of sharing and togetherness really shone through on the day itself. I don't think I saw that gorgeous grin leave Lauren's face all day.

The reception was held at Lauren's parents farm. This is where I joined her & her bridesmaids just before she got dressed in her beautiful Edwardian net lace dress from Abigails Vintage Bridal; the vintage style suited Lauren so perfectly. To continue the vintage theme Lauren wore flowers in her hair originally worn by her mum at her own wedding! After the ceremony at St Micheal's Church it was back to the farm for welcome drinks of sloe gin, limoncello and elderflower cordial all home made of course!

Guests sat down to a feast of local food including beef & cider from the farm. The barn had been totally transformed with the sweetest hanging origami birds all made by Celia, Robs step mum and reams of bunting, made by everyone! The gorgeous flowers were all grown by Celia & Lauren's mum, Angela. It looked amazing.

The party went on until the early hours with The Zen Hussies keeping everyone dancing. Lauren & Rob stumbled across this band during their first Glastonbury together back in 2007 and have been huge fans ever since. Unfortunately I'd left before they started but check out their website, they're awesome!

It was so lovely to be a part of such a fun and happy wedding, thank you Lauren & Rob.
