A Vegan, Festival Wedding
Kerrie, a complete-time mum, and Lee, the master of a construction company, were married around 2 June 2018 at East Sussex – 62 acres of glorious woodland, and the place to find small bridesmaid dresses, a cafe, workshop, kitchen garden, marquee, and camping.
One of the aspects of planning that Kerrie found difficult is at deciding on a marriage dress, but such a beauty she was left with – a stylish, clean-lined sleeveless Empire line design, having a touch of subtle and delicate lace around the shoulders.
"We were disappointed badly by our original florist, so really chose to end track of no flowers on our big day. I asked around and Wild Rubus was recommended. We were so lucky that Caroline only was built with a small wedding booked in on our day, so could fit us in. She did a fantastic job. I wanted corals, whites, deep pinks with dark green foliage, and flowers having a bohemian style."
I think Lee's more enjoyable and casual groom attire is fantastic, having a shirt and trousers paired with burgundy braces.
The couple first met in London on a night out, when Kerrie was living there, and Lee was located in Hastings. They enjoyed their first date together in London per month later, and both were built with a fantastic time (resulting in more dates!)
"This resulted in more visits, a pregnancy (oops) and 3 months later I went to live in Hastings. Lee proposed in my experience when I was pregnant with this second child. We visited to watch Coldplay and Lee had arranged to propose around the stage, however it couldn't proceed at the last minute so he proposed in my experience at home before we left for that gig. It was an excellent day! We married 24 months later."
We've featured the vibrant and romantic work of the photographer before, also it's brilliant to be able to talk about more of her charming use of these images.
"Georgina is lovely. We have used her previously to see relatives' photographs, so always knew we'd use her for our wedding. We both love her work and everything about her and would recommend her."
Carrying a dreamy bouquet of roses, peonies, daisies, and greenery, Kerrie walked with the trees to start the ceremony, deciding on the Oasis song, Let There Be Love as her entrance music.
"We went using the standard vows, that have been very short and sweet. Neither people are very mushy so might have felt awkward, and I am nervous concerning the ceremony, I wanted to have it over and done as soon as possible!"
The lovely and colorful rustic styling from the venue was by Emma, by having an order from the day hand-painted onto a wooden crate, a floral and gin-inspired table plan, and menus designed making by Kerrie.
"We don't drink gin, but I loved the thought of gin bottles and candles so went using the gin bottle table plan. I used to design our invitations. I wanted something a little different to fit in using the festival feel and loved what Jen put together for all of us. The good thing concerning the woods could it be didn't need loads to create it look good."
"I sent emails to any or all the local bars coupled with them saving gin bottles for me in the weeks before the wedding. I were left with loads, but I loved them around the tables using the candles."
"We've both attempted to pick a favorite part from the day and extremely can't. We loved the entire day more than we were able to have imagined. I dreaded the ceremony, but I loved walking onto the stage and seeing everyone a slave to. I also loved everyone together when we'd the last dance, though it did mean that your day was over."
Words of Wedded Wisdom
"I know it's been said plenty of times already, but don't sweat the little stuff. On the day there have been a few things that weren't within the right place, or have been forgotten about, however, it didn't matter whatsoever."
