James & Lauren’s Bespoke Wedding, Northamptonshire
A bespoke wedding experience that captures the true sense of the couple, their journey & the love they share with each other & their guests, is one that etches a cherished memory for all.
Taking inspiration from their venue, a converted barn, Lauren & James were drawn to a Romantic Rustic theme, which with their personal touch, would make their wedding day truly bespoke.
Having sourced, sewn & printed all of their wedding décor & stationary themselves, it was down to their florist to add the finishing touches. Their vintage jars & bottles on tree stumps were filled with white anemones, sweet avalanche roses and blue tree berries. The same flowers were used in Lauren’s bouquet, with variations for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen.
Twinkling fairy lights & glowing tea candles adorned the ceremony which Lauren’s sister led & the couple personally wrote together.
In Lauren’s words….
On the day I have to admit I was completely overwhelmed! After spending the majority of the day with the family I hadn’t prepared myself to meet 150 people! However the day went amazingly well thanks to the fantastic staff at our venue. We received so many lovely messages after our big day from our nearest and dearest so we’re pretty sure they enjoyed themselves too!
myLWB: Any advice to other brides/grooms?
Enjoy the planning! It is the most magical time and I loved that we planned every aspect of the wedding together.
Also, on the day make time to see each other. One of my favourite memories of the day was our first dance; we talked non-stop to each other in our own little world for three minutes because we felt like we had so much to catch up on!
