Cara & Lee - March '22

From our very first meeting with Cara and Lee, we could tell that we were going to have a whale of a time planning with this fun loving couple!

As Cara and Lee arrived at Curds Hall Barn the day before their wedding to begin personalising the venue, their excitement was palpable. They began unloading the first car-full of meticulously labelled boxes and folders full of items ready to decorate tables before Lee was sent on a second trip returning with his small car visibly laden with drinks in anticipation of tomorrow’s celebrations. 


Top tip: When preparing the decorative elements of the day ready to dress the venue, it is really worth putting the time in to organise things before you transport them and start setting up. This can significantly reduce the time (and stress!) needed to sort through everything the day before the wedding when you are on site. A great idea is to group things by the room that they will be used in at the other end so that they can be placed straight into the correct area as they are unloaded.

You may also wish to put the place cards, table name/number, favours, candles and any other decorations into separate small boxes for each table. This organisation also makes it easier for you to assign tasks to others who may wish to help you as you put things in place.

Don’t forget to check in with your caterer too to ask if they can place cutlery, crockery and glassware in the correct positions on tables for you - they are very experienced with this and it will tend to be a quicker (and neater!) process if they take care of it for you. 

With preparations at the barn complete, Cara and Lee checked into the Old Coach House to await a grocery delivery and set up base for the weekend’s celebrations. 

As the wedding day arrived, Cara enjoyed a morning getting ready at the Old Coach House surrounded by her nearest and dearest, including show-stealing nephews Theo and Alfie! The bridal party were soon ready to make their way to the barn under clear blue skies in the stunning March sunshine. 

Cara and Lee had chosen a perfect colour scheme for March with subtle wintery hues. Glamorous dark emerald green gowns for the bridesmaids were complemented by deep purples, blues, creams and pale pink in the gentlemen’s ties and the florals. 

Drapes dressed the Woodshed for a ceremony that was full of lots of fun and laughter. Little Theo was definitely the star of the show as he swam his favourite whale toy down the aisle. 

Having exchanged vows, Cara and Lee invited their guests to join them for an uplifting sing song as part of their ceremony - a lovely personal touch. 

Making the most of the surprisingly bright weather, guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the lawn before heading back inside the Main Barn where tables named after Cara’s beloved childhood toys gave everyone a good giggle as they found their seats. 

Speeches were given in between courses, including a few words from our lovely bride herself, as a toast was raised to one little lady who was very much missed but very much present in everyone’s thoughts and hearts. Then it was on to an evening full of cocktails, dancing, cheese and lots more cheese!

Cara and Lee, Happy Wedding Day and Happy Anniversary. Little did you know that eleven years later you would be celebrating your love for each other in such an epic way with your friends and family! Wishing you many many more years of happiness together,
