Ross & Nicola’s Church & Barn Wedding at Barford Park, Salisbury

Settle down with a cup of tea and a slice of cake ready to look through the photos from Ross & Nicola’s wedding day last week. It’s a biggy (so you’ll be pleased of some refreshments) but there’s a point in this post where you’ll definitely be drooling after cake.

The day was action-packed, taking in three beautiful venues and a whole host of wonderful, thoughtful details. We knew there would be plenty in store and we had a sneak preview of what was planned as Ian helped design the wedding stationery with his Swash and Fold hat on, including invites from the day (for which I cut out (what felt like) a million records on a rotary cutter… but that’s another story, which you can read about, here).

We were lucky enough to start our 12-hour day at The Pig in Brockenhurst. This is one of our favourite places and it always has such a beautiful atmosphere and we can’t think of a better place to start a wedding day.

Larmer Tree Gardens – Sam & Stephen’s Wedding Day – Part Two

Carrying on from Part One…

There are lots of games and gadgets to keep wedding guests happy at Larmer Tree and the drinks reception took place amid Space Hopper duels, bridal Jenga tournaments, wind-swept Badmington and peacock chasing. The canapes looked pretty delicious too.

The garden was filled with music as the guests were entertained by the band The Wave Pictures.

It has come to our attention the rules of the bouquet toss are getting a little relaxed. We’ve had married woman determined to join in on the fun lately, but the inclusion of the Bride’s Father is a new one to us. He was very competitive about it too!

A word of advice though, a pre-teen will always reign triumphant – they’re smaller and niftier, you see.

We had a little bit of time to take some portraits of Sam and Stephen around the grounds before it was time for the wedding breakfast. Starting off with a pose on the Magic Tree (they always have their picture taken on this when they come to their festivals).

The music theme carried on through to the meal where each table was assigned a different genre. There were lots of pretty garden flowers dotted around the tables in dainty cases, jugs and bottles.… Read Full Post
