Caroline and James’ wedding was a real treat, full of lots of personal details and a very friendly and energetic crowd. There was an awful lot of dancing and singing during this wedding and we were impressed by everyone’s stamina!
Oh.. before we carry on, a special mention should be made to James’ Mum who grew all the flowers for this wedding at home, by seed and made all the bouquets and buttonholes. We were blown away by her amazing garden and floristry skills.
Their ceremony took place in James’ home town, Milborne Port in Somerset at Milborne Port Parish Church. It was a service full of music with a worship band filling the church with sound and enthusiastic sing-a-longs.
After this everyone made their way over to the Dorset border to Stockbridge Farm Barn for the wedding reception.
Guests were treated to a Fish & Chip supper for the wedding breakfast (which went down exceptional well.. who doesn’t love fish and chips?) eaten from personalised trays. And for afters guests were encourage to take part in a Bake Off. There was so much cake of all different shapes, sizes and flavours and enough to fed everyone five times over!

The day was packed full of oodles of handmade prettiness.

Having bagged themselves a Celebrant in a competition, the legal bits were done and dusted on a different day with their day at Stockbridge Farm being a Humanist Ceremony. So, instead of signing the legal register at the barn Adam and Gemma wrote messages to each other in their guestbook.
Needless to say, with such an enthusiastic and friendly crowd it was a lovely day in middle of the Dorset countryside. And we got to hook ducks during our break whilst everyone was tucking into their meal. Brilliant.
Here are some photos from their day…
