Kelly and Will created their dream wedding on the grounds of their family home in Shropshire.

The pair, aged 28 and 32 respectively, married at their rustic country wedding on June 9, 2018 with 170 guests. “We transformed an old stone barn into a beautiful venue; adding fairy lights, flowers and a home built arch, which gave a unique atmosphere complete with birds singing,” smiles Kelly. “For the reception we switched over the ceremony barn and transformed it into the reception area. The courtyard made for a beautiful entrance, with rustic matting creating a beautiful walkway up to the barn, lined with beer barrels, milk churns, lanterns, bunting and signage.”

The bride wore the “dress of her dreams”. “So simple, yet the luxurious satin material, gorgeous rich colour, delicate detailing, full-button train and embellishment and embroidery made it that little bit special,” she says. Her bridesmaids wore the same dress in different colours. “They all decided they loved the same dress, but couldn’t decide on colour as two liked the blue, and two liked the pink. We decided to go for both as I wanted them to love their dresses.”

“My parents gifted me some stunning pearl and diamond earrings with a matching necklace,” Kelly says.

The groom and his dashing crew were dressed by Peter Posh Formal Suit Hire.

“I had my best friend, sister, cousin, and family friend as my bridesmaids, who looked stunning in their pastel embellished dresses,” recalls the bride.

“The build up, the day, the little moments. It really is the greatest day of your life,” beams the bride.

“In the evening we had a band, Call of the Kraken. They got everybody dancing and were just incredible,” says Kelly.
