DIY Wedding in Cheshire
Since we’re currently in pre-wedding season, I’m using the quieter time to catch up on some blogging. When I realised I hadn’t blogged Amy & Dave’s wedding yet, I had to make them the next on my list! I can’t quite believe it’s been well over a year since their gorgeous DIY wedding in Cheshire. I think you’re going to love Amy & Dave’s wedding for its festival styling and relaxed atmosphere.
Amy & Dave chose September for their wedding celebrations and got married on a gorgeous sunny day. They held their ceremony at St. Oswald’s Church near Chester, close to Amy’s parents’ home. There was lots of joy and laughter during the ceremony right from the moment Amy’s dad walked her down the aisle.
After being declared husband and wife, Amy & Dave left the church to a real pelting of confetti. Their guests really went for it and I think poor Dave ended up with half the petals in his mouth! The image of Dave’s glasses falling off as him and Amy share a kiss at the end of the confetti is one my absolute favourite photographs of all time!
Ayesha and I then hot-footed it over the wedding reception just in time to see the bridal party arrive on a tractor. It was so fun to see the bridesmaids’ and ushers’ smiling faces and the delight of the guests as they made their big entrance! The bridal party looked very stylish with the bridesmaids in gorgeous floral dresses, which were perfect for a relaxed September wedding. Ayesha and I adored Amy’s style; her sparkly wedding gown was just the right thing for dancing the night away!
Festival Wedding in Cheshire
Amy & Dave held their wedding reception at home and it was truly impressive how they and their families had transformed an empty field. Whilst it must have taken so much organisation to pull off, it really was great as Amy & Dave could have exactly the big day they wanted.
The field had been decorated wonderfully ready for the afternoon of celebrations. There was so much for Amy & Dave’s guests to see and do. From the garden games, the seaside-style photo-booth and hay bales for chatting away, there was a place for everyone to enjoy themselves. Inside they had transformed the marquee with colourful lanterns and paper cranes. It was the perfect eclectic mix that was relaxed and informal whilst being colourful and pretty.
There was also plenty of food and drink for the guests to enjoy that gave Amy & Dave’s wedding a real festival feel. They had beer on tap and a gin bar with all the accompaniments so that you could just help yourself to what you fancied. This also extended to puddings and cheese – just help yourself and enjoy!
Big thanks to Amy & Dave for having Ayesha and I along to celebrate your big day!
