Rachel and Daniel’s country inspired Trowse wedding was packed full of colour, detailing and personal touches.
Their ceremony was held at the very pretty St Andrew’s Church, which was packed full of bright colourful florals. Vicar Rosie was incredibly welcoming and I knew this would be a fantastic day. Even my luck with the weather continued. Daniel and the groomsmen walked from his home in the village, choosing navy suits and thistles symbolising Scottish roots. The bridesmaids dressed in a lighter dusky blue with matching country inspired bouquets. It was lovely to see Amy again who was a bridesmaid at Louise and Bav’s wedding last year. As everyone headed into the church, Rachel arrived in her uncle’s royal blue Morris Marina with her dad by her side. She looked absolutely stunning in her fish tail lace Pronovias gown with a boho inspired full veil and flower crown.
Their ceremony was very personal and emotional and it was lovely to see so many children. After their “i dos” we walked outside with a massive saw, yes that’s right, a massive saw, for their first challenge as husband and wife. The log saw is a tradition from Bavaria, a first for me and they made very short work of it. We then moved to the gate for the more traditional confetti! As everyone headed off to the reception, we stayed on for a little while in the Trowse area. It’s a special place for them; they live in the village and walk the surrounding streets, riverbanks and fields with their daughter Matilda and dog Chad. We decided on their three favourite locations by the church and further along by the River Tas. It’s such a beautiful place and the most perfect backdrop for their photographs.
Their reception was held at Hethersett Village Hall. Along with their family they’d spent a huge amount of time and effort DIYing the space. There were lanterns hanging from the ceiling, floral displays and even a map of their impending travels. After the cutting of their fabulous mountain themed cake, I left everyone to enjoy their meal and evening entertainment. Congratulations.
