Sarah & Hannah - March '22

Hannah and Sarah decided to host their wedding at Curds Hall Barn with just five months of planning time. While this may have felt like a short period of time to some couples, Sarah and Hannah were not phased and set to work choosing experienced suppliers who they could trust to understand their vision and help bring everything together - with great results!

The environmental impact of their wedding day was an important issue to H&S - they even gave a Radio 4 interview as part of a feature about sustainable weddings! There are several things that one can consider in order to minimise environmental impact. H&S chose their suppliers carefully and locally where possible, supporting small businesses and reducing the travel footprint. They were also aware of hiring, reusing or repurposing items rather than buying new, as much as they were able. 

Wild Folk Florist use only seasonal home-grown blooms to make their creations and are based locally so were a perfect choice for our eco-conscious couple. The seasonal flowers inspired a gorgeous springtime colour scheme of blues and yellows which was carried throughout the venue by additional complimentary arrangements of daffodils, grape hyacinths and broom all sourced from British soil and beautifully arranged by Hannah’s friend Kay. 

After spending the day at the barn putting decorations in place, it was time to retire to the Old Coach House to relax and share a well-earned drink with friends ahead of the following day’s celebrations. H&S chose to observe the tradition of not seeing each other the night before, or morning of, the wedding before walking down the aisle, so each wedding party occupied a separate wing of the Old Coach House for preparations - heightening the anticipation of the day. 

As our gorgeous brides arrived at the barn, spring was definitely in the air and beautiful snowdrops littered the woodland under crisp and clear blue skies. 

Hannah was driven to the ceremony by her dad in a Land Rover which had been part of the family farm for many years and had great sentimental meaning for her. 

Sarah was first down the aisle in a stunning lace gown with full length cape accessorised with a personalised hair piece spelling out her new married name and carrying a gorgeous bouquet of dried flowers. Hannah carried a coordinating bouquet as she made her way down the aisle to join Sarah in a gown chosen from a collection at local store Threads, which stock pre-loved bridalwear for those considering a more planet-friendly wedding attire option. 

Music was another important aspect of the day for this couple, particularly musician Hannah, who chose to walk down the aisle to Paschelbel’s Canon in D - well you can’t beat a classic! Sarah had chosen a more contemporary classic and the newlyweds danced back down the aisle to Stevie Wonder’s Signed, Sealed, Delivered which seemed very appropriate, before enjoying drinks and canapes with their guests. 

Following a delicious meal and heart-felt speeches, it was time to hit the dancefloor to the soundtrack of The Joe Ringer Band with a surprise guest drummer - Hannah! Having managed to keep her guest appearance a secret for five months, it was fair to say that Sarah was surprised to see Hannah pick up her drumsticks but once she had gotten over the initial amazement, she even joined in, taking to the mic to sing a little number! 

Congratulations Sarah and Hannah, we hope you continue to make beautiful music together!
