I really am loving today’s wedding, it’s so beautiful! Bride Lizzie is stunning in her David Fielden dress, hair braided with wild flowers.
These beautiful images are courtesy of the talented珍妮弗·简·摄影。I love her style, capturing all the moments and beautiful portraits of Lizzie and Will. Be inspired and enjoy as I hand you over to bride Lizzie to tell us about their day;
We first met at the age of 16, when Will’s parents moved to Devon, to the farm where we had our the evening reception. We went to the same Sixth Form and were always close. Will was always fixing my broken-down car so I could give him lifts home from school. We ended up going to University in the same city, but it wasn’t until a few years later that we became a couple. When Will’s younger sister broke her arm, I spent lots of time helping out on the farm and riding her horses; Will was always conveniently around! We grew closer after a rather chilly hockey match I departed for Will’s to be greeted by a hot bath and roast dinner. From there on, we never looked back.
我们有我们的心就在威尔的父母抱着农场接待我们设置，但均无法确定在哪里举行我们的婚礼。我们考察了一些令人难以置信的场地，但是，当我们第一次接触Forde Abbey, we were blown away by the beautiful setting of the historic monastery. We knew our guests would be able to stroll around the stunning gardens and enjoy the magnificent grounds just as we had.
The Photography –珍妮弗·简·摄影
Our photographer仁was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. At our first meeting. Jen’s warm and bubbly personality shone through, and after a couple of biscuits and slurp of tea at her beautiful home we were sold. Jen made us feel completely at ease and we both felt utterly relaxed in front of the camera. Her organisation throughout was fantastic; scouting out both venues and exploring camera angles to get those beautiful shots. She always went the extra mile; army crawling in wet sand, clambering up rickety looking structures, and paddling through chilly streams.
David Fielden Dress
我的婚纱，“埃斯梅由大卫菲尔登，从选择刘嘉玲Baverstock时装。他们是在戏弄如何我设想我的衣服太棒了，给了我礼服的惊人的收集试穿。我知道我找到了完美的礼服，当我试图在“埃斯梅”，然后（到我妹妹的娱乐）花了一个小时左右漫步在它的商店。我想要一个多功能的衣服，我会在跳舞，但有一个柔软，浪漫的感觉，它 - 与在腰背增滑剂的埃斯梅美丽，精致的蕾丝层层打勾所有正确的箱子！
Is it bad that I can’t remember…I am so not a shoe person!
I wore a beautiful set of sapphire earrings that my sister and husband have given me as thank you from their wedding, to match the engagement ring Will had designed. My bridesmaid lent me her beautiful Cala Lily style bracelet with a stunning pearl to finish the look. I wore Boss Orange Sunset- it’s the scent that reminds Will of me and vice versa- he has the same Boss Orange for men
Zoe from Beauty with Zoe是令人难以置信的专业，无缝地转换自己和5个伴娘。佐伊创造了我一个完美自然的外观，这正是我所希望的。我的化妆留完善整个白天和晚上，我没有做单点触摸起来！
I wanted the bridesmaids to feel perfectly comfortable in their dresses and thought long and hard about what style to choose. The multi-way dresses in pastel blues and greens were a perfect choice, complementing their body shapes beautifully. We had many a laughs learning how to tie and knot them!

In Bloom created the bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets along with the buttonholes for the groom and groomsmen. The buttonholes were hand tied with raffia and included fragrant herbs. The groom’s included a beautiful blush pink rose, to match the bridal bouquet.

Will’s family are avid car fans and so we were fortunate enough to use their old Sprite sports car as our wedding car. Will and I have spent many an hour in the garage toiling over the engine, and driving around the country lanes so it was great to use it on our wedding day.
Will and I love crafting so were somewhat foolish and decided to make our own wedding stationery. Will designed everything while I was the manual labour, cutting and glueing into the small hours. We enlisted family help which made things happen a lot faster! It was great fun to do but I would recommend leaving yourself more time than you would imagine to get those invites completed.
We strove to embrace an ‘English Countryside’ theme and gathered from the farm environment. We used old reclaimed barn doors for tables, old milk churns for flower arrangements, old storm lanterns for lighting and large wagon wheels for decoration. We added our own personalised touches with handmade bunting and strings of origami cranes as a homage to our time spent living abroad in Asia as a couple.
One of our first (and favourite) holidays together was spent in France and so we decided to go back there for our mini-moon. We stayed in an idyllic cabin on it’s own private lake near the Dordogne. We used冠层和星星与快乐,令人难以置信的网站和古怪的地方stay both in the UK and abroad. Coincidentally we had stayed in one of their properties in Cornwall when we Will proposed.
My brother-in-law was kind enough to give me away. It was a great honour to have him walk me down the aisle, although I think he was more nervous than I was. We elected for something neutral and chose Pachebel’s Canon in D.
First Dance and Entertainment
Our first dance was ‘Better Together’ by Jack Johnson. Although Will and I didn’t consider ourselves to have ‘a song’ we thought that this suited us perfectly, and have spent plenty a time dancing around the kitchen to it.
We hadThe Little InformersOur brief for the band was energetic and awesome! The Little Informers kept our guests dancing into the small hours of the morning with an incredible set. They had even learned our First Dance Song ‘Better Together’ by Jack Johnson which was a complete surprise to us.
Advice for Others
Delegate. If people offer to help and do tasks, then let them. Either give them a free rein on creativity or assign them something very specific. It’s a great way to keep you more relaxed and not feel that you’re having to do everything.
