What gorgeous weather we had for Ashley & Tracy's festival tipi wedding in Sheffield on August 18!
They tied the knot in a private ceremony with just the closest of family, then headed on over to meet the rest of their guests at Stoneybank Farm, Oughtibridge; whose lovely owners had rented them a field with the most beautiful views for the whole weekend.
This wedding was totally DIY, and the Bride and Groom clearly put their heart and soul into every last detail- with a little help from their friends of course! I'm talking giant dreamcatchers, an enormous 'WEDFEST' sign, burlap and lace, multicoloured pompoms, fairy lights, and even a secret, secluded honeymoon suite!
Tracy hadn't seen anything in the field until arriving on the day so it was very emotional to see her reaction when her beautiful venue was revealed and she realised how well Ashley had pulled everything together.
Thank you for sharing your special day with me!
Our ceremony and reception were a direct reflection of our relationship. We love each other dearly, but are not religious, so to have such an intimate ceremony reflects our closeness. The reception was a reflection of our lives together so far; parties, friends and having a good time... That's why we loved having our friends involved!
Tips from the Bride...
1. Completely immerse yourself in the experience when shopping for your dress! You will never do it again and it will become one of your most treasured possessions.
2. Have your day EXACTLY as you and your hubby want it. Everyone will have an interest and opinion, but these are your memories, you get to choose what they are made of!
3. Just let all the stress and worry go on the day. Embrace what will be the best day of your life. I promise you will want to remember every single emotion you felt during every single part of the day, and for this to bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye. I can remember all of it- all the emotions, and it makes me cry every time.
