Red & White Rockabilly Wedding with Pigs!

For their winter wedding, Trixie and Sam were inspired by the resident pigs at their venue, South Farm in Cambridgeshire. As soon as they found out about them they decided that they had to incorporate them into the theme of the day. All the tables were named after different species with their own facts on the table markers. They added a tattoo/ rockabilly element with their choice of cake, place settings and the temporary tattoo station which was a huge hit with the guests.

“We felt quite inspired to do things ourselves so we just went for it”, Trixie began. “For place mats we bulk bought scratched records and designed our own labels. We filled mason jars with fairy lights and we designed all of the print materials – the table plan, pigs for each table, the tattoo stand and ceremony cards.”

Colourful, Tattoo Art Themed Wedding on a Farm

Claire and Trystan met in an art store in Truro, so of course their wedding was going to be all about the colour and the creativity! They pulled their rainbow, vintage, tattoo-themed day together for just £5,500.

The couple described their wedding vibe as, “Traditional tattoo art mixed with bright, bold colours and a hint of vintage. Trystan is a tattooist, and we are both collectors of tattoos and tattoo art, plus we have spent several years travelling around getting tattooed by our favourite artists. We knew we wanted our wedding to reflect this about us as it’s a major part of our lives that we love. The best man and most of the groomsmen are all tattooists too, so it all came together very naturally. The day was a true reflection of who we are as people.”

Their venue was the beautiful and rustic Thornsett Field and Farm in High Peak, Derbyshire. Claire said, “Kerry, who owns the barn, and her husband were incredible! They really go out of their way to ensure you have the perfect day. We started the set-up on the Monday before the big day, and they were on hand to offer help throughout. We honestly couldn’t have asked for more.” And having a wedding on a farm means loads of cute animal moments! “Pugsley the Pug greeted our wedding guests on arrival, Mabel the sheep took a starring role in our wedding pictures, and my beautiful dogs, Louie and Otis, caused chaos throughout the day – including a point at the end of the night where Otis was on the dessert table! It was animal madness in the best possible way.”

Farm Wedding with Piglets, Their French Bulldog & Lots of Rum!

Adina and Richard did what many modern couples do these days: They legally married a few days before so they could really design a day that was truly them for their second ceremony. I mean, when you have a wedding that features piglets, your serve burgers for the meal and you have your cute dog following you down the aisle, you’re always going to have an amazing wedding! In fact these two wanted their Frenchie to feature so much in their wedding that they had French Bulldog themed cake topper and they put her face on all the table name cards!

The bride and groom met online. Adina said, “As we both worked in the film industry, we connected really quickly, and after only two weeks Richard made his way over to Berlin so we could get to know each other. It was an amazing time, and we both knew we would definitely want to see each other again. After half a year of spending lots of money on flight tickets, Richard was able to move to Berlin to be with me.”

Wes Anderson Inspired Wedding in a Pink Tin Chapel

Emma and Jimmy’s Wes Anderson inspired wedding had a bit of a pink theme – from the groom’s suit (which he made himself!), the DIY flowers and even the chapel they were married in! Their summer wedding took place at Kent Life in Maidstone which is is a working heritage farm and museum.

“The thing that was most important to us was that the day felt relaxed and fun”, began Emma. “We had a bit of a mismatched theme with lots of Wes Anderson touches (we’re big fans), chevrons, animals (the venue is a farm), and music.”

“We took a lot of inspiration from our venue. We had use of the grounds and three buildings. The ceremony took place in an amazing 19th century pink tin chapel called the Cuxton Chapel as it used to be in the town of Cuxton. The chapel is deconsecrated, which was perfect for us as atheists. Plus, I love religious iconography and symbolism so the dark teal interior with the organ and crucifixes were just perfect. It was like something from a film or a retro photo. Also, there are alpacas! We first visited Kent Life before we were engaged and after Jimmy proposed I think we both knew that there was never going to be any other option as to where we got married.”

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!”
