Summer Barn Wedding of Jade and Cael.
What a beautiful summer Wedding!
Jade and Cael have been together for 9 years this March! They met in 2008 at a New Year’s Eve party at a mutual friends house.
In April 2010, Jade’s dad was running the Paris marathon. Her mum, twin sister & Cael along with family friends had flown over to watch. Jade had always said how much she wanted to see the Eiffel Tower’s evening light display, so on the first night Cael and and Jade ran to the base of the Eiffel tower. Because Jade was so excited she wanted to film the show and instructed Cael to take photos. He kept saying ‘let’s just watch it… let’s just watch it’. Cael then got Jade’s attention as the show began…. and there he was with the ring!
This beautiful summer Wedding was on 25th August last year. The service was at St Catherine’s Church in Burbage followed by a Wedding breakfast and evening reception at Shustoke Barns in Warwickshire.
Dress me pretty was the first and only bridal shop that I visited. I knew instantly I would find my perfect dress there as every time I walked passed the shop window I would see something I loved! I booked my appointment and arrived with my twin sister and mum. Having the shop to myself made my experience more personal, I felt they were very involved in helping my find my special dress. I found my dress after trying on just 4! All the styles in the shop were all unique and unlike anything i had previously been viewing online. Being a huge fan of lace, the dress i had chosen was perfect, everyone who saw me instantly admired how beautiful it was. I was so over the moon with my experience and what the shop had to offer, i then recommended 4 other pretty brides who also found their perfect dress!
The food service at Shustoke was unique to the venue. Jade and Cael were able to choose a variety of canapés as starters during the drinks reception with the main course being a BBQ brisket of beef which was positioned in the centre of each table along with vegetables and potatoes. Each table had a designated carver who served beef to each guest, this made it more informal and encouraged those guests who may not of known people to engage with others. In the evening they hired Baz and Fred who set up a pizzeria in the courtyard, Jade highly recommends their fresh pizzas! They went down a treat with the guests and even Cael and I were boxed one up for the taxi journey home.
Our photographer was Lauren Lewis (Picture Patch Photography). She had taken photos of Jades friends wedding and since that day Jade knew she wanted her to take their photos. Cael and Jade were worried as were never keen on staged photos, which is why Lauren was perfect. She made them feel comfortable and was very good at taking those canded images as well as generic wedding photos.
Keegan Hammond sang and played guitar in the courtyard during the drinks reception & Lydia Unsudimi sang a set in the evening and sang their first dance, ‘dream a little dream!’ Beautiful voice!
