Emma & Harry - June '22

The Old Coach House was a hive of activity on the morning of Harry and Emma’s wedding as both the bride and groom’s parties made their preparations for the big day. 

While the bridesmaids gathered in the sitting room and garden room to enjoy the abundance of natural light to have their hair and makeup done, the gents had photographs taken in the rear garden with Lenny the dog (in his matching bow tie, of course!). 

Emma and Harry had chosen to decorate the barn in vibrant sunny shades of gold and orange which highlighted the brickwork of the barn beautifully. The couple exchanged their vows in the Main Barn with a gorgeous backdrop of fairy lights and foliage. 

Once married, the newlyweds, accompanied by Lenny, were showered with confetti as they made their way down the steps onto the rear lawn to enjoy drinks and garden games with their guests. Live music really added to the atmosphere during the drink reception and into the wedding breakfast - resulting in an impromptu singsong! 

Our couple opted to dine at a sweetheart table which has become a very popular choice for several reasons:

A sweetheart table, where the bride and groom sit together, just the two of them, allows time together to reflect on the day so far. It comes as a surprise to many couples that there isn’t much scope to do this during the day, so it can be a welcome opportunity to check in with each other. 

Depending upon the time of year, and the lighting opportunities, your photographer may suggest stealing you away for a few minutes at some point during the meal. 

A sweetheart table makes this much easier as guests are occupied with the wedding breakfast at their own tables and won’t notice you leaving your table. It also means that a whole table is not waiting for your return before being served their next course. 

If you wish to circulate around the room to speak with guests then you are not abandoning anyone at your dining table. 

A sweetheart table can also be useful if there are any family politics that may make deciding on a seating plan for a top table difficult!

After dining, it was time for speeches and keen not to let Harry have the last word, our bride took to the microphone before heading to the dancefloor for their first dance as husband and wife to get the party started! 

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Carney! We hope you continue to have this much fun, always!
