Planning our vintage country wedding

Happy New Year everyone. Ricky and I had a brilliant Christmas break with our families. We ate loads, watched tonnes of TV and got to hang out with Ricky’s beautiful three month old nephew, Leo.

We also caught up with my niece Olivia who we always have lots of fun with. It’s not Christmas without a Christmas cracker hat!

But as the clocks struck midnight on New Year’s Eve Ricky and I could finally say we’re getting married this year!

Since then we’ve both got straight into planning mode. We had a meeting with our venue organisers at Gaynes Park where we went through our timings, our first dance and all the things that make the day run smoothly.

It was also really important to see the space empty to get a feel for how we want to arrange our tables and how we dress the Orangery – which is where we’ll greet our guest as husband and wife.

The overall look of the wedding will be very natural, relaxed with a hint of country/vintage. Everything is slowly falling into place and I haven’t turned into a bridezilla so far!

Although we have a long check list of things we still need to arrange we do have our photographer which is a big weight off our minds.

It’s always tricky finding someone who would be able to naturally capture the biggest day of your life. So we went for documentary wedding photographer, Bethany Clarke who is a photojournalist and will be able to tell the story of our day perfectly. Next stop is the really, really fun part – looking for the perfect dress! And with nine months to go that’s a lot of shopping to get in!
