Rebecca & Rob - July '23

Rebecca and Rob were always destined to be part of the CHB family. Their date was one of only a couple of remaining dates for the year when they booked it and it suited them perfectly -  the rest has fallen into place immaculately! 

When planning, Rebecca was keen to complement the rustic feel of the barn but to also offer contrast with delicate flowers and crisp white tones throughout. Our couple planned the perfect combination of top suppliers and DIY elements allowing them to focus budget and impact on a couple of statement areas - draping and large floral arrangements to frame the ceremony and Top table. Complimentary DIY elements of bud vases filled with mixed white meadow flowers were then added to continue the scheme throughout the venue. 

Rebecca followed her florist's advice: to create bud vases of flowers herself using blooms provided by the florist so that everything coordinated. This allowed Rebecca to enlist the expert help of friends and family and also proved more cost efficient. It is always worth having honest conversations with your suppliers so that they can use their experience to suggest areas that could be just as effective if done yourselves, and areas that are best left to the professionals. This way you may be able to save some of your budget without sacrificing the overall effect of the scheme. 

Rob and Rebecca stayed together in The Old Coach House the evening before the wedding so they were able to enjoy some time together with their friends and family as they got ready the morning before they exchanged vows. The floor plan of the Coach House does allow for couples to be together in the house but prepare separately if they wish to, as three bedrooms are situated off one side of the kitchen/dining area and the other two bedrooms are found up the stairs on the other side of the house. Perfect if you want to be together until the last minute but still want to keep outfits a surprise!

Rebecca arrived to walk down the aisle in the Main Barn. Rob was suited and booted in black tuxedo as he waited for his bride. Candles lined the aisle and beautiful white flowers covered every surface. After a light, fun and beautiful ceremony, the new Mr and Mrs Micklethwaite made their way out onto the lawn for drinks and canapes while live music played. 

The wedding banquet was hosted in the Woodshed before guests made their way back into the Main Barn to indulge in the bride and groom’s chosen cocktails of Pink Gin Spritz and Dark and Stormy. Awesome party saxophonist Caron Robinson entertained guests in the evening and the full dance floor was grateful for more delicious food from Country Box Catering who provided the perfect selection of pizzas. 

Rebecca definitely wins a gold star for being one of the most organised brides we have had the pleasure of working with (we’re sure Rob helped out too!). But more than anything, it has been so special getting to know you both and hosting your beautiful, joyful day. Congratulations!
