Its always amazing to meet potential couples at alternative events. This time Miss to Mrs Magazine, pulled out all the stops when collaborating with Sami Tipi. Posh Frocks & Wellies was born, I traveled over an hour to get to the beautiful Leicester countryside… with hale bales, a 3 hat tipi, amazing exhibitors. Like any wedding fair you have no idea of who you will meet, whether you will make the connection you so hope to make. My nerves were flying so high. I awaited the first brides to be to arrive….
Then after a few hours I met Jess and Sadie… It’s amazing how you can connect, and have fun even when you are soo nervous. But they settled my nerves, we talked about all things vintage and they loved my vintage display, with old suitcases, a garden arch covered in ivory… with albums, framed prints, I had gone above and beyond…. Never at that point did I imagine the wedding that was to come, a year later!
The weather remained beautiful throughout the whole day, finishing with a colorful sunset just at the right moment. I loved this day and all its history. Merville abbey was the ruins, that was part of the marquee structure. What I later learnt was that this was where King Henry the Eighth stopped prior to the battle of Bosworth. AMAZING or what!!
Well I was so impressed…. I can’t believe how special Abbey Farm became in my mind. As you can see the wedding was amazing, and was organised and choreographed by Sadie, Jess’s sister.. who is now started her new business as a wedding coordinator and dresser. So please watch out for new updates… from Sadie.
Nuneaton is a great place for vistas, and Abbey Farm did not let me down at all… With a drive way lined with cherry trees, and horses to great us. I was enchanted from the very start, there was so much to be used…. I felt spoiled and overwhelmed by sheer curiosity, at the idea if discovering more and more as I turned each corner.
Jess is very similar to me, in that she to has a great sense of humor, while Adam was nervous… waiting for his impending speeches, but when we left abbey farm, to go and see there beautiful horses after the meal and speeches…. he relaxed completely, and I could see how he felt so at home in this new landscape.
The advantage of summer wedding is that you have more daylight to work with, allowing you more flexible time to work with. Although summer can bring rain… and Autumn can bring wet mist… which is beautiful in its own rights. Every season offers its own beauty and difficulties.
But either way.. I shall draw the most beautiful images from your day…!!
