Groom kissing bride on the head

Kate and Stuart’s wedding took place at Burchatts Farm Barn in Guildford, Surrey. We love the details of this beautiful wedding, from the Kraft paper table runners and cute tissue paper hearts, to the 60 peach, white and pink geraniums that Kate grew in terracotta pots, and Kate’s fabulous 1950’s style dress.

Our thanks go to Amy Radcliffe Photography for sharing these fantastic pictures.

“We got legally married a week before our wedding, and chose to have a humanist celebrant conduct our service on our wedding day. Neither of us are religious and felt this was most suitable for us as we could write our own vows. The barn was lovely and didn’t really need much decorating, so the only thing I made for inside the barn was some pom-poms to add a splash of colour. The wedding colours were coral, peach and navy, which started with the invites and carried through to the cakes, dressing and most other things in between.

“The bouquets and buttonholes were all picked from our garden on the morning of the wedding. I really didn’t want to spend money on flowers, and having a wedding in August and a garden full of flowers seemed like perfect timing. I started planting¬† flowers in early spring that I hoped would be flowering at the right time; some grew, quite a few didn’t! For the table centrepieces I grew peach, white and pink geraniums in terracotta pots of various sizes, which were also another ‘favour’ for our guests. I really don’t like the idea or expense of large cut flower displays being used for one day and then ending up in the bin.

“I wore a vintage 1950’s Harry Keiser ivory wedding dress, which had a sweetheart shaped bodice and a layered tulle skirt. I had it shortened as I really wanted a tea length dress, and my mum made a beautiful peach petticoat, which added a soft touch of colour to the dress.”
