It’s finally time to blog Vanessa and Phil’s wedding at Beechfield House in Wiltshire. You may have seen the Chinese Wedding Games in one of my previous posts which happened the day before their wedding. Luckily, as you can see the weather cleared and the sun came out to shine on their wedding day. And, oh my god what a wedding it was.
Vanessa and Phil are two of the loveliest people I’ve had the fortune to meet. And meeting all these amazing people is something I love about my job. Their sense of fun, adventure and positivity really struck me before the wedding and it was no surprise to find that their family and friends were were equally as lovely to be around on the day.
So let me share the fun and tell you a little about their day. It was incredibly personal and a very intimate wedding with around 60 guests. Phil’s father married them in the local church in Coombe Down. I guess this was one of the biggest, most significant things about the day and it was hard not to be moved (a little bit more than usual) by the ceremony. It was beautiful. Outside the church they were greeted by their guests who threw lavender confetti. It smelled incredible, but judging by the photos it looked like it hurt quite a bit and got in places that you don’t want lavender!
We then headed to Beechfield House for the afternoon reception. We started with the cutting of the cake and their guests were served ice cream from Icicle Tricycle a vintage ice cream vendor from Exeter. They had the most beautiful letterpress wedding stationary, home brewed beer, cocktails (where the coasters were the table plan) and a FEAST of cakes in the evening.
It was humbling to be a part of their day and I wish you both as much fun, love and adventure as the day itself.
