Weddings don't get much better than this. Mix a super fun couple with a marquee and a wheat field and you have a recipe for a spectacular wedding (and a few stunning photos too)! I'm not sure the quiet village of Elmton in Derbyshire knew what hit it the sunny July day Beth and Russ got married, but it welcomed them and their wonderful quirkiness with gusto. Highlights from their day included the small but beautiful church, a tattooed vicar, a beautiful vintage bus, rustic garden games made by Beth's fair hand, smoked meat that had been cooked all night by the most dedicated hairy guys, a wheat field, and a stunning sunset. I loved this wedding so much!
The slideshow really captures the essence of Beth and Russ day. I hope you enjoy their love story!
Remember that beautiful hot summer day we had in April this year? Well that was the perfect day for Catherine and Pearce's amazing marquee wedding at Standlow Farm in the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District. The first thing I noticed when I arrived was the swimming costumes drying in the sun - in April!
Catherine wore a most beautiful Essense of Australia vintage lace dress which contrasted perfectly with her bridesmaids' purple tones. The vintage theme was carried over in to the 1960s VW camper that whisked her off to the church in Kniveton - fashionable just a few minutes late of course. Pearce had a few personal touches with his blue suit - cufflinks with C and P engaged on them and some personalised stitching inside his jacket.
The church at Kniveton is absolutely beautiful, if a little bit tiny, inside and was packed with Catherine and Pearce's family and friends. The ceremony was traditional right up until the end when everyone got up to dance and sing one of Pearce's favourite songs as the married couple exited the church. After a few glasses of champagne outside the VW camper then took them back to the farm for a marquee reception with some of the best wedding food I have yet to taste. A perfect day was made even more perfect by golden sunshine that lasted until the pizza oven opened outside for the evening guests to enjoy.
