Rain & Toby - May '24

Updated: 5 days ago

Rain and Toby have brought incredible enthusiasm and creativity to every stage of their wedding planning. 

The couple have been together for some time and are obviously very in-tune with each other so planning seemed very enjoyable for both of them. 

Having originally wanted to host a mid-summer wedding, Rain and Toby wanted to bring sunshine and colour to the day. With summer dates already fully booked, the pair began to plan a May wedding. They were blessed with incredible summer sunshine and filled the barn with colour for a real fiesta feel. 

Toby and Rain had organised coaches to transport their guests to and from the wedding. A great idea to help facilitate guests relaxing and enjoying a cocktail or two. It also helps to eliminate any stragglers! 

Curds Hall Barn is lucky enough to have some great establishments offering accommodation locally so with guests staying in the same location, sharing transport to and from the venue is a really convenient and cost effective way of travelling. 

With everyone here safely, the ceremony was conducted by Rain’s sister who did an incredible job of telling the story of these love birds with special insight. Rings were exchanged and the couple shared vows that they had written to each other before dancing back down the aisle to begin the celebrations. 

Toby was dashing in a green suit and Rain looked exquisite in a fitted dress with huge bow train, a long veil and satin evening gloves - any photographer’s dream! 

Guests flooded onto the lawn to enjoy drinks alongside miniature lamb enchiladas and cod tacos. To add to the Mexican feel, a three piece Mariachi band appeared around the corner to surprise the guests! After serenading the newly-weds, the trio roamed the lawn treating guests to their mariachi versions of various chart toppers and classic favourites. 

It can be really fun to add a surprise element into the day that guests may not be expecting, it really lifts the energy and sets the tone for the rest of the day. If you’re unsure of the kind of thing that works well then it’s well worth asking your Coordinator for recommendations. 

Guests were torn away from competitive garden games (very apt, with competitive games being a shared love of the bride and grooms’!) to take their seats in the Woodshed for the wedding breakfast. 

A Mexican feel continued through the feast of colourful dishes served to tables on huge wooden platters for guests to indulge in. After dining, guests enjoyed the sunshine before the band began to play and the dance floor filled. 

There were cocktails, cupcakes and pizza a plenty late into the night as Rain and Toby’s nearest and dearest partied hard to celebrate this fabulous couple. Congratulations guys, it was truly a day to remember!
