Milly & Dan’s beautiful homespun wedding was a real highlight of my 2017 wedding season! It was as warm & cosy as any homespun wedding could dream to be and was gorgeously styled, with an elegant simplicity and rustic charm. Milly, is a real sweetie too! I spent a bit of time at the farmhouse a week before the wedding and we had fun with my two year old, eating cake and playing with dogs!
Milly’s family home is a lovely big farmhouse in rural Somerset and was an obvious choice of venue for the couple. They hired a marquee and got friends & family to help out with some DIY decor. Milly’s Mum even grew flowers for the occasion in a special garden! These were used for the marquee tables and greenery from the garden was hung up too. Logs & beer barrels displayed flowers & cake, adding to the rustic feel of this naturally styled wedding.
Milly looked absolutely stunning in separates by locally based designer, Ailsa Munro. Her simple chic look was perfectly complimented by her bridesmaids, who were dressed in blush & space grey Jigsaw separates. Their simple flower crowns were so cute too! Dan and his groomsmen all looked dapper in matching Charles Thrywitt suits. They were a fun bridal party to photograph and I must say I was pretty impressed when the girls attempted a groom lift and actually achieved it!
I love Somerset and I really tried to capture the essence of this beautiful county in Milly & Dan’s photos – the lovely apple trees (always a symbol of Somerset to me!), the dog chilling in the sunshine, the rustic & sometimes shabby looking farm buildings, the cider barrels and the warm smiles and vibe of this beautiful wedding day. It was a real joy to capture it all! Congratulations again guys – it was wonderful to share your special day.
