Bold colours, music from New York Brass Band and plenty of love and laughs made Rachel and Matt's big day at The Normans the most glorious of summer shindigs!
Rachel and Matt travelled all the way from Australia for their wedding at The Normans, with Rachel completing the last leg of the journey in her father's MGA 1958. Meanwhile, bridesmaids and mother- and brother-of-the-bride followed in a snazzy peppermint VW Camper Van.
The girls made a statement, carrying larger-than-life bouquets of bright pink peonies, Yves Piaget roses and orange pin cushion proteas, by Maryssa Dowe Floral Design.
The bold bouquets looked gorgeous held against the sunshine-yellow bridesmaids' dresses, worn with royal blue shoes for that 'something blue'.
And let's not forget the happy couple! Matt's blue suit, from The Vintage Suit Hire Company, packed a colourful punch - finished with an aromatic buttonhole of Lolita Lempicka rose, corn flower, lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus.
And for those of you dreaming of a Jenny Packham bridal gown, here's a closer look at Nashville, featuring the designer's signature lace detail and intricate beading. Beautiful!
The couple started the celebrations from the get-go, with the New York Brass Band announcing the girls' procession down the aisle - playing Happy Together by The Turtles.
A personal ceremony followed, conducted by humanist celebrant Louise Burns - against a colourful backdrop of tall urns displaying yet more rich textures and bold blooms.
Smiling from ear-to-ear, the newlywed pair left the barn to a sun-soaked courtyard, where the revelries began ...
The New York Brass Band took to their instruments, once again, to get the party in full swing.
While garden games - the ever-competitive Jenga among them - kept guests entertained ...
Over at the pop-up bar, meanwhile, ice-cold beers and fruity Pimms quenched guests' thirst.
Flanking the entrance into The Normans Grain Shed were two urn displays (manoeuvered from the Ceremony Barn), which stood beside large hurricane lanterns.
As guests stepped inside, a mosaic of black-and-white photos of the happy couple lined the entrance for all to see.
Table tops were each treated to a bright centerpiece, and the table numbers and place names kept fuss-free with bold, monochrome stationery.
As guests took their seats to make merry and dine on fine fare served by The Hog and Apple Food Co., Rachel and Matt headed into surrounding farmland to capture a few moments alone...
