Colourful & Homegrown Outdoor Cotswolds Garden Wedding

Cotswolds Garden Wedding Jonny Barratt Photography

I do love a laid back and fun wedding atmosphere, which today’s real wedding feature has in spades, not to mention joyous vibes all round. Yay!

Becky and Paul were married in Becky’s parent’s garden in the beautiful Cotswolds on the 18th August 2018. They held their ceremony in the round surrounded by the lush gardens and Becky’s brother was their celebrant. How wonderful! A party then followed in the gardens al fresco with gazebos providing shelter, complete with ice cream van and pizza truck. Yum.

I love how colourful their day was, with bright bold florals and homegrown elements galore. The outfits were also super stylish. Paul was suited and booted in Ted Baker and I adore the pink waistcoat and floral bow tie combo. Becky chose a stunning embellished gown by Needle and Thread, which she teamed with a wildflower bouquet. Didn’t they look amazing?

Huge thanks goes to Jonny Barratt Photography for sharing with us these super beautiful images. What a special day indeed.

My parent’s garden in Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds. I had always wanted there to be a wedding in my parent’s garden, and was so thrilled we did there for ours.

Your Outfits & Accessories

Wedding dress – It was from Needle and Thread. I have loved the Needle and Thread style for a long time. I bought the bridesmaids dresses from there first, then chose mine, it was the first and only dress I tried! My earrings were from Catherine Zoraida.

Groom’s attire- Ted Baker was heavily involved, but with bow ties for the groom and groomsmen made by Gung Ho! They donate money from every purchase to Bee charities.

Our rings were commissions made by Laura Gravestock.

The Honeymoon

Our honeymoon was in Japan!

Post wedding we’re just glad not to be planning a wedding anymore, and people not asking us when we are going to hurry up and get married.
