THIS COLOURFUL FARM WEDDING IS A BISCUIT LOVERS DREAM!
Isobel and Chris wanted a total blank canvass for their wedding day, so having it on the family farm seemed the perfect choice. And a blank canvas it certainly was consisting of a field, a cow shed and all in the middle of the Cornish countryside.
“We planned our wedding in 15 months. My trusty notebook was vital with many lists, jobs for each month as well as drawings of how we wanted things to look. My family were crucial in the ‘getting wedding ready’ as we were having it at their farm we had a lot of ‘reorganising’ to do in the cowshed as well as building a set of steps for our guests to get to the ceremony!”
“Having the wedding on the farm did mean that we worried about the weather and we did have thoughts of cars getting stuck in the mud as well as people! But we planned for the worst case scenario and had back up plans just in case. We were really lucky and the September rain did hold off until just before home time.”
“We wanted our wedding to be colourful, bright, fun and quirky! We also wanted it to reflect us and include what we love – biscuits, cakes, great music, games and even a raffle all alongside lots of colour in the form of ribbons, streamers and confetti cannons!”
“We are so lucky to have so many talented friends and family. My Mum grew all the flowers for the bouquets in her garden, a friend made the wine, a work friend made the wedding cake and an artist friend designed our wedding invitations.”
“Inspired by Pinterest and wedding blogs, we made a screen from a recycled garden fence, painted it and covered it in paper pin wheels and ribbons for a backdrop for both our ceremony and as a photo booth. We made a huge biscuit box for our table planner and drew colourful pictures of our favourite biscuits to go on the tables. We had many crafting nights with friends making paper pom poms and any left over paper was cut up to use as confetti. My Dad was also great at teaching us many wood work skills along the way!”
“Looking back we wish we had someone film the speeches to look back on but the photos we have definitely bring back the laughs and smiles. But my best advice for other couples who are planning a wedding would be to just go with what you want and not what other people want, it is your wedding day.. Even if you have some crazy out there ideas… just go for it!”
