LOUISE & CHRIS | A Deepdale Farm, stress-free, charming barn wedding complete with outlandish PARTY!
Drawn to Deepdale, for their love of spending quality time with friends and family. Louise and Chris, loved the idea of spending the whole weekend here with everyone, setting up camp in tipis with their guests, a BBQ the night before, after decorating the spot from floor the ceiling with beautiful whites and greens.
Discovering the place through word of mouth, they couldn't have been more pleased: Louise's sister-in-law had been to a wedding there, she was really taken with the place, so recommended it to Louise later.
The groom and the groomsmen made quite the statement in their cream chinos and blue jackets, teamed with white shirts and pale green bow ties and ties. Chris stood out with his tan, braces too. Both Chris and Louise wanted a relaxed informal dress code to go with their venue, so with a bit of help from Pinterest they 100% smashed this.his.is.s.rides love of greenery, it stood proud and looked magnificent, garnished with white roses muted greens and simple candles. Sometimes, less is more.
They may have kept the decor straightforward, but that doesn't go to say they kept everything that way...They decide to personalise their vows and rehearse their incredible, first dance. Chris loved Louise's lines in her vows that much, he decided to steal her lines half way through the ceremony, making the guests howl.
SO BEFORE WE GET THE PARTY STARTED, LET'S CHECK OUT THE OUTFITS!
Louise, your dress was beautiful, remind me, it was personalised by Rose, your step mother...
"The dress was from bridal rogue gallery in York. I wanted a full lace dress but ended up buying a very plain dress. During lockdown I bought some lace off Etsy and took it to my step mum Rose who pinned it on and made it look perfect. I liked that my dress was a one off after Rose modified it for me. The final touch was Rose added beads and sequins off her dress (from when she married my dad!) and also the same from my sisters wedding dress so that was borrowed from other dresses."
Honestly, this is such a lovely idea, I've not seen this done before, you're a one off Louise!

MOVING ON TO THE DAY ITSELF
Everyone had stayed at Deepdale in the tipis the night before the wedding. Louise couldn't risk missing out on any of the fun, so she had departed early doors on the morn of the wedding, to Riverside Farm Cottage, about a mile down the road in Kirbymills. When I arrived, there was so much going on, it's been a while since I've seen this much action on the morning of a wedding, it was just brilliant to see it again, once more!
What were the best moments?
