Woodland Wedding

Real Wedding – Relaxed Country Vibes

January 4, 2018 | News

Polly & Jon were married at Two Woods in Sussex. The theme of their day was ‘relaxed country vibes’ and she designed her wedding dress with her sister.

“We wanted a really chilled fun wedding where we, and our guests, could have an enjoyable day in the beautiful Sussex countryside.”

“We used a lot of blue and selected mixed blue floral prints to fit in with the relaxed country vibe.”

“My sister made my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses, we made the bunting together, I designed my own wedding invitations and stationery, my dad made signposts, my step-mum did my hair and a friend made the cake.”

“As soon as I started wedding planning a friend told me to get myself on Pinterest and that’s where I got most of my ideas.”

“Being quite a curvy girl, I opted for a simple skirt, nipped in at the waist, with all the detail on my top half. My dress had a sweetheart neckline, overlaid with a classic lace in a slash neck and going into ¾ length sleeves and a deep v at the back. I wanted a train (because when else am I likely to get to wear a dress with a train!), so I just had a little train, that wouldn’t pick up the entire forest on my route down the aisle!”

“Our main was a classic roast chicken with the biggest Yorkshire pudding I’ve ever seen and the most amazing gravy! It was a winner with everyone. In the evening we went for British favourites again with giant sausage rolls and pizza.”

“I would recommend not getting too hung up on everything matching. I started out my wedding planning trying to make everything match perfectly but in the end, everyone loved the quirky un-matching details like the bridesmaid dresses.”

“Our first dance was to Perfect by Ed Sheeran. We just loved the words and I’ve always been a big fan of Ed Sheeran. He had only released his album a couple of months before our wedding and when we heard it we chose it instantly after months of deliberating what to have.”

“To walk down the aisle I had Fairytale by Ludovico Einaudi. It was lovely having something so calming playing for such a nerve wracking and emotional part of the day!”
