Good morning! The wedding industry is weird, it follows seasons, but content wise bloggers tend not to because we are aware that in winter you’re probably planning your summer wedding, and in the Autumn you’re planning for April. So today, we are in the warmth of summer at Gaynes Park, one of my favourite venues. Sonny and Katie were very lucky with the glorious weather. In quite the contrast, #SYGMchristmas starts tomorrow afternoon. Eeeee.

Reception drinks we both felt relaxed and loved greeting our guests after the ceremony and listening to our friend play his acoustic guitar and with the sun shining it was the perfect moment.

We did everything ourselves the invitations, place names, wrapped jam jars with string, favours, table plan, made confetti cones and filled with confetti with help from our mums.

We went for a rustic theme we thought it worked really well with the venue. We had lanterns, tea lights, fairy lights and bunting.
