Inspired by nature, Britten bride Vicky got married in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside in a fun, floral, friends and family-centred ceremony.
Eager to make the wedding as personal and meaningful as possible, the couple went to extra lengths to ensure they could get married in a location that meant a lot to Vicky. The reception was held at Vicky's parents' farm, Church Farm in Wiltshire, and she was keen to secure a ceremony local to the family home. On making arrangements for their special day, Vicky said:
'The ceremony was in the church at the end of our drive, we had to get a special licence to get married there, as it's not in use anymore. It was so lovely seeing all our family and friends in one place'
Special moments between the couple and their guests were captured beautifully by photographer Neil Atkinson, who used the traditional church setting and green rural surroundings as the perfect backdrop for the wedding images.
Vicky chose a fitted lace wedding dress from Pronovias with delicate straps and a long train detailed with intricate lace motifs to wear as said 'I do'.
The elegant silhouette of the gown was accentuated by our two tier lace edged Ada wedding veil in cathedral length. Complementing the contemporary style of the wedding dress, the veil also worked perfectly with the train of the dress adding a regal essence to the overall look.
Makeup artist Christy Waterfall achieved a bright-eyed dewy look for our real bride with a subtle smoky eye and natural lip colour, whilst hairstylist Abi Blake created an extraordinary updo, woven with fresh flowers and topped with a floral halo continuing the inspired by nature theme.
Vicky's bridesmaids wore lace cornflower blue knee-length dresses with a pleated A-line skirt, with their tousled curls styled in a pretty half up half down hairdo complete with delicate floral hair accessories.
Looking smart and handsome, the groom wore a blue morning suit, cream waistcoat, and cornflower blue tie.
The bride and her bridesmaids carried matching bouquets created by Stocks Cottage Flowers in Chippenham. Filled with peach roses and green foliage, the autumnal tones of the bouquets added to the rustic feel of the countryside wedding.
Moving to an outdoor marquee in the ground of Church Farm, guests sat down to eat the wedding breakfast provided by wedding caterer Ebbie's Kitchen, before the bride and groom cut the cake.
'The cake my sister made was stunning.'
The bride and groom had their first dance to 'The One' by Kodaline before their closest friends and family joined them on the dancefloor to music from covers band Mr Kanish.
'The band was incredible so the dancefloor was packed all night. Everyone was having a great time!'
Thank you, Vicky, for sharing these beautiful photographs of your wedding day, they really show off the length and detail of your stunning veil too. It looks like fun was had by all on your special day, and we wish you both lots of love, luck, and laughter in your years together.
