Devon Farm Wedding ~ Charlotte & Mark
When we first met Charlotte and Mark we were really excited to hear their plans for their Devon farm wedding. On the day, we spent the morning with Mark as he got ready at his parents’ farmhouse and with Charlotte who was getting ready in their farm cottage a stone’s throw away. Charlotte looked beautiful in her vintage-inspired dress from Amica Bridal Boutique and her flowers from Alternative Arrangements even included little ears of wheat, taken from one of Mark’s fields. The ceremony took place at Berry Pomeroy Church and the newlyweds exited to a guard of honour comprised of rugby balls!
Being a farmer, Mark was keen to capture some of the local countryside in their couple portraits so we stopped off en route to the reception. One of the locations had a view of Dartmoor in the distance, which is where Mark had proposed. The reception was held in a field on the outskirts of Totnes. The marquee was decorated with a rustic, country theme. The table names were taken from various novels and publications which gave us a hint of the couple’s interests – literature, faming and rugby. Friends and family relaxed in the sunshine on hay bales, sampling the local cider from Hunts Farm. The speeches were a scream; we haven’t laughed so much in ages!
Mark is passionate about using local produce and supporting local businesses so Bulleigh Elms Farm Shop provided the catering for the wedding breakfast and Rose Farm Hog Roasts supplied the evening food. Mark’s mum made the gorgeous cake. The party continued into the night and guests dances away to Society Rocks. Their day was also captured by R&L Digital Media so I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of those dance moves captured for posterity!
It was a fabulous day and we were so thrilled to be a part of it. Here’s their story in pictures…
