Super Chilled Backyard Farm Wedding

Danielle and R.J. wanted an outdoor wedding which was casual and fun for everyone involved. The day ended with the whole wedding party and most of their friends jumping into the creek! It was unplanned and a great ending to the perfect day.

“Having an outdoor wedding was important to us from the beginning as we are both much more comfortable being outside,” explained Danielle. “We took some inspiration from the black hole of Pinterest but honestly it’s nearly impossible to replicate something you see online and in the end why would you want to? Since the ceremony and reception were both outside, we wanted the lighting to be the main decoration. That is where the luminaries, lanterns and disco ball came in. Any excuse for a disco ball, really!”

Their ceremony was emotional and, of course, included their puppy. “My dad walked me down the aisle to George Harrison singing If Not For You. George is our favourite Beatle. R.J.’s best man was holding our pup, Tyson, through the whole ceremony. Our officiant, Steve, has known us both for years and after greeting everyone he talked a little bit about us and the natural progression of our love… There was much crying. Then he read two passages that R.J. and I picked out. The first being from The Velveteen Rabbit and the second a paragraph from The Amber Spyglass. R.J. and I have a hard time being the centre of attention, even on our wedding day, so we decided to save our vows for our honeymoon. Steve later sent me a transcript of the ceremony and at the end he had written, ‘By the power of Grayskull, I now pronounce you married.’ It was his own personal challenge not to say that out loud!”

Mismatched Farm Wedding with Llamas, Sheep and Ducks!

The Wellbeing Farm in Lancashire was the perfect venue for Christie and Kurt’s informal wedding. They didn’t have a colour scheme because they wanted something more organic and mismatched. “We tried not to have a proper theme as we thought more mismatched would be better”, said the bride. “However a ‘no theme’ theme was pretty impossible because when you start buying you naturally gravitate towards similar things.”

The one thing the bride did want though, was lots and lots of flowers. “We are both green-fingered and used to have our own allotment so the flowers were important to us. The Flower Farm were able to provide us with absolutely beautiful wildflowers, most of which they had grown themselves. We wanted flowers everywhere so there were fresh local flowers in every possible vessel including tea cups, tins, jam jars, milk bottles and milk churns. My mum and dad had a production line going. My dad would eat a tin of beans every day and my mum decorated them with lace, twine and wooden hearts for us to use as flower arrangements!”

“Our wedding was a culmination of everything we love”, said the bride. “Music, fashion, classic cars, dancing, tattoos, comfort food and big parties… We threw in everything! I would say our theme was a 1950s vintage rockabilly and DIY extravaganza! Everyone said this was the most DIY’ed wedding they had ever seen, as well as the only rockabilly wedding they had ever experienced.”

“Our wedding has always centred around friendship”, said Lily. “We knew that we would sacrifice detailed luxury over guest numbers as living on two continents for equal parts of our lives means that we’ve collected quite the community of amazing people along the way. Our friends are like family and our family are like friends. We wanted a celebration that would reflect our love and appreciation for all those people and one that would also reflect a little bit of all of them in one creative way or another.”

Rach and Tim’s DIY wedding took place on the bride’s family farm in New Zealand. It had a 1950s rockabilly theme. “It was important to us that we had a fun and relaxed atmosphere”, said Rach. “We learnt how to do a rockabilly dance as our first dance!”

“Our ceremony was funny and sweet. The celebrant asked us what we loved about each other and then put that in to her speech at the wedding. My nephew read He’s Not Perfect by Bob Marley.”

Rustic Elegant Wedding on a Farm

Isola Farms wedding (67)

Jake and Emily were married at Isola Farms in Florida. They wanted their wedding to “make our love a tangible thing people could see and feel”.

The ceremony was held outside, and was both of their favourite parts of the day. “Our ceremony was beyond perfect”, said Emily. “Nestled in between two giant oak trees with chandeliers hanging above our flowered cross, it was more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed of. Jake was so perfect standing there trying hard not to cry. Our vows were hand-written in books that we both used for wedding planning. I cannot describe the feelings, other than to say it was so much better than I had hoped for.”

The couple did nearly all the décor themselves. “A very, VERY large portion of our décor was DIY”, she continued. “If it was not done by me it was done by a close family friend or relative. Everything from our chalkboard signs to our photo booth. We thought, what better way to show our love then to make everything hand-written? We even had hand-written notes for each guest on their seat at the reception.”
