Prepare to fall head over heels (and down a rabbit hole) with this English countryside wedding, Rustic, Vintage and Homemade. Georgina our daughter and her partner Tim chose to get married in the local village church of Atherington and hold their reception at the family home here at Boreat Barton. The beautiful garden with it stunning view of the Devonshire Dales was the perfect backdrop for the large marquee. The marquee was festooned in lights with homemade chandeliers and table centre pieces made from foliage and flowers gathered from the garden.
Despite the atrocious weather leading up to the big day with the help of family and friends we managed to set the scene with hessian covered hay bales for outside seating around a fire pit. An old horse trailer was converted into a ‘pimp your prosecco’ and sweet bar. Mason jars with twinkling candles lit up the patio and wine bottle lights decorated the outside tables. The highlight of the day was a wheelbarrow race game set up in the paddock which everyone enjoyed especially after a prosecco or two.
Everything was homemade and rustic. The church pew decorations were made from hessian and home grown flowers. The church was decorated by the lovely ladies from Atherington Village with foliage and flowers from our garden here. Table name plates where made from our horses old shoes and family and friends collected corks and we made some lovely name place holders. The old trees cut down for fire wood where salvaged for wooden table centre mats and signage. The garage at Boreat became a makeshift workshop and Tim’s sister being a bit of a talented artist painted all the signs and decorated the wedding cake with foliage and flowers gathered from the garden and grounds.
The wedding was a real country affair with family and friends making it all possible and or course beautiful Boreat which was overflowing with guests and the happiest place on earth.
