We are not a fussy couple and knew that we wanted our wedding to be low key and based on our love of the outdoors. When I say the outdoors, I mean I like being in the countryside (in a pub with a coffee looking at the outdoors) and Chris likes to be outside, climbing trees and clay pigeon shooting.
Our theme for the wedding was easy – green (I’d seen a pinterest photo about a year previous and fallen in love with green bridesmaid dresses!). Boys in tweed, girls in green dresses with wooden, lace and cardboard accents on everything. We also knew when we wanted to get married straight away; our 6 year anniversary was 5th November and we both love autumn/winter so wanted it to be around then, just when the leaves were starting to turn. We didn’t book the wedding until the end of April which meant one thing.. We had around 6 weeks to book and plan a whole wedding!
I created pinterest boards showcasing my ideas and took them to Chris, who basically said nothing (only piping up when he really hated my suggestions!) We wanted our wedding to be very simple, and for fun for our family and friends. We didn’t want speeches that went on for hours nor a long winded meal. We wanted two courses of hearty food followed by a evening of dancing with a photo booth for fun. Table decorations were to be wooden slices decorated with jam jars filled with flowers and sprinkled heart cut outs from books. we wanted something understated, but that still fitted the whole ‘theme’.
