Groomsmen’s outfits/accessories

They brought their own navy suits to match, yellow ties (matching the daffodils that were out in pots- spring time theme). Ring bearer- yellow bow tie

Me & my mum infused raspberry and vanilla vodka and a citrus vodka. Then decanted them into individual shot bottles per person.

Also had personalized Jenny & Chris love hearts

Jars or chocolate almonds (Italian confetti) per table

The kids table had personalized Activity boxes for the boys and tote bags for the girls with little gifts in them.

Had a big jar of old fashioned sweets for the kids after the meal

Spring time theme, we love this time of year when all the flowers start coming through, signaling the end of winter.

Boho vibes in the decoration, and slightly rustic to fit with the barn in the countryside.

I did a lot myself with a bit of help from friends and family. Decorated jam jars, wooden log center pieces, table numbers, table plan.

Venue Stylists (which came with Gaynes Park) did the ribbon & fairy light wall in the barn, and the ribbons on the chair.
