For our latest venture we were at a gorgeous Rearsby Church wedding for the lovely Stephanie and Michael. The couple tied the knot on the 25th June and we were there to capture it all!
The morning was very busy and the house was packed full of Stephanie, her family and bridal party preparing for the day. Hairspray, nail polish and brushes covered every surface as they got glamorous for the special occasion. The blushing bride now had to get laced up into her bejewelled, lace gown. Her father couldn’t have looked prouder as they got in the vintage car to head to Rearsby Church.
Meanwhile Michael and his groomsmen spent the morning suiting up as well. They also looked dapper in their blue suits as they piled into the white Lincoln town car to take them to the ceremony.
The church was decorated beautifully with subtle bows to compliment the pink and white colour scheme for the wedding. The ceremony was beautifully, with a lot of laughs and even some tears from friends and family. After they officially became husband and wife, it was time to head out into the amazing sunshine. This could also easily be the most wedding confetti we’ve ever seen!
Another unique touch we haven’t come across before was the ice cream! And what a day for it, the guests couldn’t have loved it more, especially the kids!
Barn at Manor Farm in Leicestershire was the reception location. The venue hosted a rustic farm themed affair, with hessian chair decorations and table covers as well as jam jars with miniature gypsophila bouquets and fairy lights to boot.
Instead of a sit down wedding breakfast, the Barwells had opted for a hog roast and BBQ. The speeches went down great and the wedding cake was cut soon after (and Michael too, almost!). Stephanie clearly wasn’t letting any wedding stress get to her. She even managed to have a splash around in her wellies.
Finally, the last little bit to celebrate becoming husband and wife was the first dance as newlyweds. Stephanie and Michael could not have looked happier as they twirled on the floor!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to the happy couple for having us. We really enjoyed the day and loved all the unique things that made the day perfectly ‘you’.
