a relaxed outdoor barn wedding in Kent | uk wedding blog

So much love for this wedding, and I was so saddened to hear of Sian and Manuel’s news just days afterwards. Hannah contacted me to say that sadly they had been burgled 4 days after the wedding and everything had been taken, including funds from the wedding for their honeymoon (and first family holiday). I really hope they can get away as it is so important to have that downtime after a wedding.

Bad news aside, their wedding was just pure magic. Utterly relaxed, full of cake, bunting and good times. Their son Austin walked Sian down the aisle, and Phoebe (excellent name) the flowergirl looks adorable!!! And I think this is the first wedding I have blogged sans flowers?! It also just goes to show that we can do outdoor weddings just as well as our American friends.
