A Colourful Devon Countryside Wedding

Meet Clinical Psychologist Jenna, who married plumber Ben in the gorgeous Estate in North Devon, around the 9th of June 2018. The couple met on the night out in Stoke Newington in 2012 and, even though it wasn’t love in the beginning sight, romance blossomed throughout a trip to Budapest for New Year. The rest is history.

Jenna wore a fitted lace gown, having a beautiful plunging back, which she purchased in Halesowen together with her long narrow veil.

Her mum also gave her her diamond rings as her ‘something old, which matched the art deco feel of the gown.

“The tulle flower girl dresses were all from Stacees and they looked so cute. We had them carry huge balloons which put into the cuteness.”

Jenna and Ben bought their flowers from Clare and their family and friends helped them put everything together the day before the marriage.

“Clare was super helpful. I wanted bright corals, pinks, yellows, and also some big flowers, as the rest of the flowers were built with a vintage feel. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were held like holding an infant which I loved too, while I always wanted only one large flower so I used one from the bright pink peonies.”

Tables were named after favorite restaurants from around the world and also the table plan is made up of each restaurant’s logo. Ben and Jenna then wrote restaurant reviews for every table- I love this idea!

“Food was vital for me because I am a massive foodie therefore we used a local catering service, which basically might have made whatever we wanted. We chose Spanish-inspired sharing food for starter and main and big sharing pavlovas for pudding.”

Words of Wedded Wisdom

“On your day make sure you are kept from the stressful bits. Make sure your bridesmaids feed you food and water (you forget otherwise).

Things go wrong so don’t ruin the lead-up or your day by worrying about things. It doesn’t matter when they do and many people won’t notice.

Prepare to feel physically exhausted afterward, however, your mind is on overdrive. Give yourself time for you to process everything and remember all of the amazing bits.”
