Location, Location, Location

I have spent a day procrastinating. Instead of writing a paper, I have been sidetracked by all things wedding related, in particular some blogs that prove the best weddings are where you don't worry too much and just have things that are truly 'you'.

For us this means simple, fun and not costing too much. We have chosen a barn on a working organic farm for the venue. With its high beams, rough edges and emptiness it suits us down to the ground, especially with beautiful fields and countryside stretching as far as the eye can see outside the doors. We can adorn it with fairy lights and home-made decorations to suit us perfectly, and lay it out as we please. Our guests may not thank us when they head home after the festivities, but we love it being so rural.

We could have deliberated for ages over where to hold the reception, but were lucky enough to love the only place we went to see. And why look elsewhere when one place is already good. It is pretty rough and ready which wouldn't suit everyone but it means we have a lot more freedom to make it our own.


  1. Your sister just pointed me over here, and can I just say that I'm so excited? I'm so excited. That barn is the most adorable thing I've ever seen, and your wedding sounds so lovely and wholesome. Wow.
