I’m finally getting around to blogging! I thought I’d start with one of our biggest highlights from last year – Wedfest!
When Louise booked us and she told me they were planning a festival themed wedding in a field near by, I’m pretty sure I danced around with excitement. It’s like a combination of all the greatest things…music…being outdoors…and a couple in love!
Louise and Steven were childhood sweethearts, as folk say, and have two boys that were the ring bearers. They had always known they wanted to get married on Steven’s cousins farm and once they were engaged everything fell into place. They didn’t want a long engagement so all the planning was done in 8 months.
Steven, co-owner of Bars r Us, just happened to buy a ‘tent’, as they call it, that year. So they had their field and their marquee (and the drinks) sorted.
It was beyond personal touches, the whole day was filled to the brim with things they liked and enjoyed. The wonderful ceremony, dodging rain by half an hour, was completed with Steven’s sisters singing and playing the guitar, which was so beautiful.
The day was just so relaxed, filled with music and laughter. Kids running around barefoot in fancy dress and having a great time on the bouncy castles. They even had their bar’o’van serving champagne.
As the sun set they lit a huge bonfire and guests sat around it on couches and hay bales. Just perfection.
They cut their amazing cake, then were serenaded by the coolest busker for the first dance under purple skies.
A perfect festival wedding.
