This summer – already! – I’ve been blessed with so many gorgeous weddings from photographers who’ve never submitted to the English Wedding Blog before. I’d like to say a huge thank you to you all, as without you wedding blogs simply wouldn’t exist. You’re the best. Did you guess today I have a wedding from a lovely photographer who is new to the English Wedding Blog? Lovely Nick Beal Photography shared Tim and Amy’s country farm wedding with me and I simply had to show you… they created the loveliest farm wedding and they’re such a gorgeous couple!

Tim and Amy’s wedding was a local, relaxed celebration at a farm in Kent. They decorated a marquee with lots of handmade touches – and hours of creativity from family and friends – to make an eye-catching and super pretty backdrop for their reception. This wedding is fabulous.

The English Wedding Blog interview: Tim and Amy

 

Wedding photographer’s website:

www.nickbealphotography.co.uk

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?

Yes, he was relaxed and very thoughtful of the photos he intended to take around the gardens of the venue.

Wedding venue:

Local Farm Paddock in East Kent

Wedding date:

02/05/15

Can you describe your wedding in a single sentence?

Situated in a farm paddock 40 meters from the entrance of the church, 80 meters from the Brides accommodation, and 20 meters from the Grooms cottage –  Local and Relaxed!!

What was your reaction to seeing your wedding photos for the first time?

Amy – A lump in my throat…
Both – we were really pleased, the photos looked really natural and relaxed.

Your wedding style or theme:

Country farm wedding

Where did you find your suppliers?

Local suppliers, word of mouth and making use of family friends as much as we dare. Any problems we had Google.

Best bit of budget advice?

Allow the groom to oversee the organisation

Wedding invitations and on the day stationery:

All homemade by Bride and her hard working helpers

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Birchington Brides in Westgate Kent

Glitz and sparkle – the bride’s accessories:

Headband with lots of silver-I didn’t want a tiara

Suited and booted – the groom wore:

Charcoal Grey Formal morning suit

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

We had three bridesmaids, my friends daughters who are 9 and 13 and my sister who is 30.  They all had a different dress, all from different places, Monsoon for the youngest and oldest and South for the 13 year old.  None were traditional bridesmaids dresses but all complimented each other beautifully.

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Professional for both.  Gemma Petts from Green Hare, Westbrook who is my wonderful hairdresser anyway and Jade Sayer was our makeup artist who I heard about through a friend.

Wedding flowers:

From the brilliant Rachel Goldsack at Contemporary Flowers, Broadoak Canterbury

General styling – did your venue need much decoration?

We had a marquee and could use anywhere around the farm we wanted. We decorated the marquee with bunting and lots of lights, lanterns and pom poms

DIY – tell us about any handcrafted elements of your wedding…

All stationery-invites, place settings, menus, table plan and order of service were homemade, most of this with the help of a very patient Father of the Bride.

Amy’s mum made most of the bunting

The wedding cake: traditional or quirky?

Cheese stack for the adults, and cupcakes for the younger members of the party

Entertainment:

Band which included Brides brother, Magician Martin Collins who was super with the youngsters, games on the lawn, and a Photo Booth in the evening

On the day tips and advice:

Try and take in as much as possible and spend time together if you can! The day will go so fast and you won’t be able to spend as much time talking to people as you want to.

What’s the best thing about being married?

Not spending every minute of spare time you have worrying about and planning the wedding!

Now we can relax and enjoy the evening’s and weekends together…
