My lovely son and his beautiful fiancé were married in early June. They chose Sandhole Oak Barn as their venue about 18 months prior to the big day. Then we hit Pinterest to gather lots of ideas and the hard work started to source it all. Leanne had some beautiful ideas and it was obvious the day was going to have a relaxed, fun boho style.
The caterers Top Table Catering were so helpful with all the planning and supplied just what was wanted. The meal started with mediterranean sharing plates, exactly the style the bride and groom wanted. On the day the staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, everyone was well looked after.
We hired in wooden trestle tables from Alternative Weddings Manchester, after a few hiccups trying to source tables we were so relieved to find Steph, it just wouldn’t have been the same without those tables!!! Leanne collected coloured glass bottles for over a year, we had 90+ on the day!!!
The florist Brown Sugar Blooms did the most amazing job supplying natural wild, colourful flowers, the bride and groom were married under a silver birch arch adorned with wild flowers.
We needed an easel and some wooden crates to display things. I met the lovely Nicola from Rustic Love Hire at a few Devon Wedding Fairs so I asked if she could help, they just fitted in the car for the long drive to Staffordshire!
The rest of the day was a family affair, I supplied the vintage tea cups and saucers, we placed a heart chocolate inside the teacup from Lily O’Brians and we gave a scratch card to support the Dougie Mac for each guest as a ‘favour’. The bride and grooms son and a bridesmaid had small wins!
As I work as a graphic designer in my day job I was able to help with all the small details and printed things like menus and signs.
We had a wonderful, happy day. Just a pity it’s all over so quickly!
