Jack & Dario’s wedding plans were scuppered by Covid but luckily they only had to postpone their reception for a month. They tell us all about their relaxed, fun day… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We wanted something that looked rustic yet polished. We are both fairly low maintenance, so wanted something that was naturally beautiful and didn’t need too much adding to be ‘wedding-ready’. We like natural colour and tones so Nest & Anchor in Fareham was the perfect location for us. It has beautiful brickwork, and was intimate enough for the number of…

Maz & Shaun’s Big Fat Greek Wedding… in Sussex!

Today we’re pleased to feature Maz & Shaun’s Greek-themed wedding. We absolutely love the pastel suits, the Airstream and the Greek Taverna foodie vibes… Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We really wanted to incorporate Maz’s Greek-Cypriot heritage but also pay homage to the gorgeous, rustic barn at Pangdean so we had lots of small touches, like olive leaves, being a consistent theme on favours, stationery and in our flowers.

Sarah & Tom’s Relaxed Waterside Wedding in Itchenor, West Sussex

Sarah & Tom’s wedding plans were scuppered by Covid so by the time they had their reception it was all about friends and family gathering, and the P.A.R.T.Y. Jason Williams has captured the love and laughter perfectly in his signature photography style. Q. What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We knew we wanted a venue that was by the sea/water, as we both love spending our spare time at the beach or in the sea.

We wanted guests to feel like they could dress down or dress up, express themselves and feel stylish but relaxed. Q.

Hester & Boris’s Chic London Pub Wedding

Note: This fabulous wedding was in Autumn 2019, so pre-Covid. It’s bizarre to see people packed in close proximity in a pub; eating, drinking, hugging, kissing and enjoying themselves!

What was the theme/style for your big day? A. We didn’t set a specific theme or style for our wedding.

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…
