Anna and Andrew both grew up in the West Country and spent much of their childhood in the countryside. They were first friends, then flatmates and then realised they had fallen for one another. Sadly, Andy moved to China for an amazing job offer and they split up for a while, but 18 months later fate conspired to have them meet up and realise they were meant to be together. A long distance relationship and then a move to Bangkok led to Andy’s proposal on a gorgeous Thai island. They knew from the start they wanted to get married in a barn and this was their inspiration for this gorgeous Devon countryside wedding.
Anna adores all things pretty, vintage and slightly eclectic which was her starting point for all her wedding decor. Bucket loads of flowers from the Flower Field in jamjars and handmade pompoms hanging from the ceiling complimented rustic log table settings and vintage books. Lengths of homemade bunting adorned the venue both inside and out. Vintage china collected by Anna’s mum was used alongside rented vintage tea cups and saucers.
Anna even had a hand in making her wedding dress which, being a self declared tomboy, she chose specifically to be robust and easy to run around in. She had a local tailor make it to the pattern of her favourite dress and then cut and sewed on all the lace herself!
“it was beautiful, made me feel elegant, but at the end of the day I could run around like a lunatic and didn’t have to worry about it falling apart”
Anna and Andrew wanted a wedding that would be relaxed, fun, full of things to do, family, food, music and laughter! They certainly achieved that!
