Lydia & Ben - February '24

Updated: 5 days ago

Our first wedding of the 2024 season demonstrated the beauty of winter weddings in all their glory. 

Lydia and Ben fell in love with Curds Hall Barn upon viewing it and were always passionate that they wanted to personalise it while sympathetically enhancing its natural beauty.

Lydia is a passionate and talented crafter with a love of florals so it came as no surprise when she informed us that she was planning to create a dramatic floral statement piece for the ceremony. 

The day before the wedding was spent in the barn unpacking beautifully crafted details to decorate and personalise the space. The floral theme was carried throughout with fresh white roses and petals on dining tables and windowsills, a three tier wedding cake decorated with white petals and Lydia’s masterpiece. Lovingly handcrafted giant paper flowers stood over six feet tall on anchored stems to frame the special couple as they exchanged vows. This statement installation set the tone with a clean  and delicate colour palette of whites, creams and pale pinks - perfect for a winter wedding. 

As St Valentine’s Day approaches, February provided our bride and groom with incredible blue skies and gorgeous natural winter backdrops. We always look forward to this time of year at Curds Hall Barn as the snowdrops begin to bloom, signalling the start of our wedding season. It is the perfect time of year for someone with an appreciation of flowers to get married as the ever-growing abundant carpet of white forms beneath the lime trees. A perfect backdrop for those photographs of the two of you. 

After the ceremony and some photographs in the grounds, guests made their way into the Woodshed in anticipation of the wedding breakfast. The Woodshed also had its fair share of details with hand made clay place settings and table numbers that were illustrated with photographs of the couple at the same age as the table number. A great conversation starter for guests! 

Our newlyweds chose a hearty table picnic of Moroccan themed, warm spiced meats and accompaniments. Perfect fuel for a bright and chilly day!

Candles and fairy lights were dotted throughout and as the evening drew in, they enhanced the romantic atmosphere in time for our couple to take to the dancefloor for an impressive, choreographed first dance. 


Lydia and Ben’s nearest and dearest spent the evening dancing away to the band, enjoying delicious pizzas fresh from Luca Pizza’s pizza ovens and adding their polaroid selfies to the couple’s tree guest book displays. 

Then, as celebrations came to a close, guests were handed sparklers and gathered at the front of the barn to wave the newlyweds off on their way into married life. The perfect end to a sparkling winter wedding and the perfect start to a bright and happy marriage.
