This is the story of Phoebe + Michael & their English countryside wedding,
surrounded by rolling green hills & grazing cows. Misty rain alternating with the sun breaking through the clouds, the wind swirling around. Bell tents filling the yard for the guests to sleep in after the dancing has ended.
She wore her mum’s wedding dress in her honor & memory, & the groomsman tucked lavender into their buttonholes.
They wed in the Noseley Hall Chapel, her historic family property built in the 1200’s. The birthplace of her late grandmother, a place that holds many family tales. The details handmade by the bride, groom, and all of their loved ones. Bunting & candles strung up in the trees & a whimsical marquee tent filled with gathered wild flowers on each place setting. After the sun set & the dancing began, guests roasted marshmallows over the campfire & glitter face paint found it’s way scattered across huge smiles.
