As Kat and James grew up in the countryside they wanted their wedding to reflect their love of the countryside and the farm Kat grew up on. We love the cute monogram tree that Kat and James used throughout their wedding stationery, from the invitations and seating plan to the bottles of homemade sloe gin for the guests’ favours. This tree was designed by a friend and is symbolic of where James proposed.
We love a tipi wedding, and when the couple really goes to town on the details we love it even more! Kat’s mum made cute hessian cutlery holders and the sloe gin, James’ dad handpicked ivy from the farm, and the couple created a family tree which they pegged all their family’s wedding photos to, making this a real family occasion, filled with love.

“Our ceremony took place Debden Church in Essex, followed by a reception at my (Kat) mum and dad’s farm. We really wanted a church wedding and we were really blessed to be able to use my childhood church and have James’ childhood vicar marry us.
“The styling of the day was inspired by the farm and the countryside we both grew up in. The farm is such as amazing place and we always knew we wanted to have the reception there. I grew up there and James is really fond of it as well, especially as he grew up only five miles away. We often visit to escape London life for a few hours, or sometimes days! We decided on giant tipis as they went really well with our country theme.
