Georgia and Ross’s beautiful DIY wedding in rural Warwickshire, with Coates & Stain Photography

If you know a whole bunch of talented people, you’re one of the lucky ones. Georgia and Ross will tell you – being able to ask friends and family to make things for your wedding day, and knowing they’ll be amazing, is just the best thing ever.

Today’s real wedding comes from the Warwickshire countryside where Georgia grew up. The marquee is pitched in a field of the family farm; pretty much every detail is the work of a talented friend or family member. And it’s all gorgeous.

I adore the flowers; they’re real English country garden blooms and must have smelled as delicious as they look. The table plan is prettily homemade and the bunting and paper lanterns add a romantic atmosphere to the reception marquee.
