Awww. I’m so in love with today’s homegrown, rustic farm wedding. It has the subtlest of vintage vibes [the brides gown is very pride and prejudice] and is filled with lots of pretty rustic detailing.

Alice and Grant married in the local family church and then had their rustic reception, complete with a vintage orange tractor, in the grounds of the family estate.

Their day was a low key, relaxed, family day – I particularly love the simple styling of their marquee. Pastel shades of bunting, bright pops of wild rustic flowers and a lovely vintage-esq alice in wonderland inspired seating plan!

I totally love this wedding and think you will too.

Words by Alice.

I wanted a very simple, rustic wedding with a subtle vintage feel.

I chose a vintage inspired wedding dress by Sally Laycock. I loved it’s simplicity and vintage elegance! My wedding shoes were also simple lace pumps from office.

My friend Sam arranged our wedding flowers. As she is a friend I was very aware of her style and knew that I could trust her with my overall vision.

Grant and I met 5 years to the day of the wedding. We have two children and it was really important to us that they were part of the day. My elder daughter (2.5 yrs at the time) was a flower girl.

I traveled to our wedding in a vintage car owned and driven by an old family friend.

We came away from the church on a trailer pulled by my step father driving a vintage tractor.

I really wanted a personal day and we did as much as we could ourselves – even the beef we ate was produced on the field we had the marquee!

My bridesmaid Emily sourced and made our pretty pastel bunting.

Our wedding cake had four tiers, covered in ivory butter cream. Carrot cake on the bottom layer, two layers of rich chocolate cake and the top tier was a traditional fruit cake which we served with coffee.

Neither Grant or I particularly like traditional wedding cakes and we wanted a less formal design. Our florist decorated each tier with pretty flowers.

One of my most memorable moments was arriving at the marquee and having confetti petals thrown at us by the guests and my 2 year old daughter.

I was introduced to our wedding photographer, Rebecca Prigmore by my florist who had worked with her before on weddings and photo shoots.

When we met, both Grant and I were really impressed by Rebecca’s work and her style was exactly what we wanted for our wedding. On the day of the wedding, Rebecca put us all at our ease in front of the camera.

My dream was to have a steam carousel, which I never thought would happen, but we finally found one.

Our first dance was to ‘Baby I Love You’ by The Ramones – It’s always been a song we’ve connected with and sung to each other.

If I could impart any words of wisdom to future brides, I would say ‘stop worrying!’

Such a gorgeous, gorgeous day don’t you think! I love the fresh florals decorating the cake and any wedding that has a carousel at the wedding reception is just awesome in my book! The Alice In Wonderland seating plan is really pretty too.

Huge massive congrats to our lovely couple Alice & Grant and thank you to Rebecca Prigmore Wedding Photography for sharing these lovely images with the WTW blog.

    A beautiful rustic wedding! I love the marquee – something different from the modern ones on offer – the poles down the centre definitely lent a vintage feel. Congratulations to the happy couple!
