hannah & kevin – july 2016

organic botanical luxe wedding

hannah & kevin celebrated their organic botanical luxe wedding here with a wedding celebrant in july 2016.

this couple were super crafters and created a shed load of gorgeous decor items for their day including a rustic wedding arch made by kevin (which he kindly donated for use by our future couples – thanks kevin!), beautifully made white painted wooden signs for ‘wedding’, ‘I Do’s’ and a signpost displayed in one of our tall planters to show ‘vows here, love everywhere!’   hannah also made a fab large wooden order of the day sign to let guests know what was happening and when.

hannah & kevin wanted a venue that could host their luxury garden wedding and cope with any vagaries of the weather.   they came to the right place!

instead of confetti guests waved the bride & groom out with ribboned wands.   canapes of gin cured salmon & falafel with lemon scented yoghurt were offered to guests alongside pimms & bottled beer.   guests started the wedding breakfast with sharing mezze platters served on slates followed by roasted rump of lamb with a parsley & rosemary crust.  dessert was a vanilla panna cotta with caramel jelly, dark chocolate fudge cake, salted caramel ice cream and hand made honeycomb.

hannah chose dartmoor flowers to create the organic botanical luxe feel with foliage garlands and foliage hoops in the wedding barn which were all moved down to the wedding marquee and re-used for the wedding breakfast.   deborah created 3 spectacular foliage chandeliers which were hung in the wedding marquee and really brought the feel of the outdoors indoors.

lovely touches which added to the botanical luxe feel included a gorgeous gold and white iced wedding cake by laura of Sugar Mamas Cakery  in tavistock complete with gold calligraphy writing and olive tree sprays.    hannah & kevin chose round table tables with green table linen, all centrepieces were supplied by dartmoor flowers.   real fern leaves half sprayed with gold decorated each place setting.

hannah & kevin also had a wedding film of their day by foster filming, the short version of which you can see here.
