O my, I have a corker in store for you tonight on the blog! Connie & Will’s garden marquee wedding was one of the best weddings I’ve been to…EVER! And I’ve been to quite a few as you can imagine 🙂 I love love love garden marquee weddings and this was absolutely no exception.
Connie & Will’s wedding reception was held in the garden grounds of Connie’s family farm home, complete with chickens, barns and tractor. Bunting covered the outside space along with many pots of spring flowers and even a Splat the Rat game and a coconut shy. The wedding was help in St Peter’s Church just down the road, so Connie & Will could make the perfect get away exit on the back of a tractor before arriving back home in time to be covered in confetti. Music was a big part of their wedding and their brass band played not only during the wedding service but in the courtyard too before guests were treated to a hearty chicken pie dinner in the marquee. The evening was topped off with an awesome ceilidh band which ALWAYS make for the most hilarious photos…
Amazing wedding guys, you totally smashed it!! Thank you so much for having Emma and I along, we loved every minute.

As George Orwell (kind of) said…”All weddings are fun, but some weddings are more fun than others…” And Ella & Eliot’s wedding at Pitt Hall Barn in Basingstoke was FUN!! Pretty much all I heard around me from the moment I arrived until I left was the sounds of laughter from their guests, having a whale of a time, and Ella & Eliot who were both clearly having the best day of their lives.
I had not been to Pitt Hall Barn before, so it’s always really exciting for me to explore new places and to find inspiration from the things I see around me. I love the fact that this venue has a starry night sky in the main wedding breakfast room, it really gives the venue and magical feel.
After the ceremony we escaped off into the surrounding woods in the farm’s Land Rover to capture their couple shots, and were rather delighted to discover a cornfield! (O I do love a cornfield).
During the start of the meal, Ella & Eliot surprised their guests by telling them that one person from each table had an envelope under their chairs, informing them that they were the designated beef cutter for their table, and equipping them with a chef’s apron and hat! I loved this idea!
Such a brilliant day, thank you both for being so fun to work with! A big thank you to Leoni too who assisted me, a few of these photos are hers.
