Lucy & Chris 28.12.17 / by Ben Winnington


Im pretty sure the God of Nuptials had our backs this day.

Chris and Lucy may as well have reached into my psyche and delivered, basically, my ideal wedding. Plus, the weather was sublime so we really couldn't have asked for more. Romantic snow fallen on rolling hills, with a stunning orange sunset. Winter wedding dreams. 

I entered the bride tribe cottage to a scene of excitement, happiness and overwhelming girl power. Lucy was joined by her charming six bridesmaids, her warm and welcoming mother and her talented hair and makeup artists; who were all drinking tea/prosecco, laughing and enjoying the warm winters morning. The sound track, of course; Spice Girls, Beyonce, P!nk (insert other strong female recording artists). 

The wedding took place at the stunning 'Stone Barn' in the Cotswolds. We had never visited the venue before and totally fell in love. What more could you want, gorgeous setting surrounded by countryside, idilic barn with quirky metal structure, thousands of indoor twinkly fairy lights, huge hanging greenery wreaths and a gorgeous open kitchen. We completely approve. 

The rest of the day didn't disappoint. The couple breezed through their vows, smiling and laughing the whole ceremony. The food was delicious, the speeches were original, engaging and heartfelt, and then came the dancing... the Scottish Cèilidh dancing.

What a genius way to entertain your guests. The pair had arranged a traditional Cèilidh dance which was absolutely great fun, totally hilarious, and a brilliant way to help your guests mingle. The evening finished off with a live band, freshly baked pizza (kudos Stone Barn), more drinking and more dancing. 

Lucy and Chris; live happily together friends. We feel so lucky to have seen your big day.
