The luxury boho glamping company covers Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, London and France. Bell Tents Their…

Lucy & Harry’s Blooming Lovely Festival-style Wedding

The scent inside the marquee with all these flowers must have been incredible! Over to Lucy to tell us all about her wonderful, relaxed, colourful day… Our wedding theme was: colourful, rustic, festival, bohemian. In a countryside location. The most important thing to us when tying the knot was our little family feeling ‘oneness’. Marriage is a bond like no other and it’s made us stronger and closer as a family. For ourselves and the kids to all share the same surname. Unconditional love. We always knew we wanted a ‘field’ wedding and that’s exactly what we had. Harry’s family…

This time next year we’ll be knee deep in uniform, pencil cases and proud front door photos… what the hell am I going to do with him in the holidays?! The end of the summer has a unique feeling I think, and boy what a summer it’s been! June wasn’t crazy for me but come July I had my Hampshire wedding fair with Kissing Gate Events so…

What was the theme/style for your big day? A. When it came to the style of our wedding, we were led first of all by the date. As it was the day after the longest day, we envisaged a midsummer vibe; festival, feasting, singing and dancing. The idea then developed to include meadow flowers, prairie ribbons, floral patterns and celestial touches. Sophie grew up on a farm,…
