Sarah and Darren’s colourful day had happiness as the theme, and we LOVE it. With loads of super cute and thoughtful touches for their guests, it was a joyful day of celebration. And you KNOW it’s going to be a super cute day when their romantic story began Gavin and Stacey style, falling in love when chatting IT sales over the phone – legitimately! My heart!
“Our wedding theme was the same as our inspiration in our relationship which has always been HAPPINESS,” Sarah explains. “We only wanted a wedding that we’d remember for colourful, relaxed and happy guests, and went for a summer fete kind of thing. We had hay bales, a gin and prosecco van serving over 40 different types of gin, lawn games, and basically a very relaxed summer’s day. The ceremony itself was in the secret garden of The Manor House Hotel, Weston-on-the-Green, and we had exclusive use of the whole place for the day. Most guests stayed overnight at the venue (it has 28 rooms), so it meant people could really let their hair down and relax with us.”
Despite the wedding reception being held in a hall dating back to 1066 (therefore being quite dark) Sarah and Darren used rainbow coloured table decorations to keep it bright and emulate the sun outside. Their table numbers were cities they love and the overall theme had a slight Fijian theme. Sarah’s brother lives in Fiji and him and his partner wore traditional Fijian clothes – they also had an INCREDIBLE Moana themed cake made by Sarah’s cousin Jessica May!
