It’s been a busy August at The Pilgrims Rest, with our first three gorgeous weddings taking place. All three weddings opted for the DIY wedding but each with a different twist.
Vintage Tea Wedding
On 31st July, we celebrated Laura & John’s beautiful vintage tea wedding. Laura & John collected all their own vintage crockery from local antique shops, charity shops and boot fairs. They created a stunning archway that was placed in the Great Hall which formed the perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony. Full of green foliage and decorated with fairy lights, mini vintage tea cups & polaroid photos, it was a great personal touch. The weeks leading up to the wedding Laura was very busy making her own bunting that covered the beams in the dining room. Both Laura and John worked so hard to create their dream wedding and what a fabulous vintage day it was.
Stephanie & Owen’s wedding was next on 28th August. The sun shone brightly for their magical pagan ceremony in the walled courtyard of The Pilgrims Rest. Stephanie and Owen used dried flowers from peonies to lavender to decorate the venue. Rows of hops hung from the beams of the dining room to the stairs and fireplace in The Great Hall. The hops looked incredible and added to The Pilgrims Rest rustic charm. Stephanie & Owen continued the Pagan Beliefs throughout and created an enchanting day.
A Rustic & Homegrown Wedding
Finally, Jo & Matthew’s stunning rustic wedding on 31st August. Everything homemade or homegrown from garden flowers to vegetables. Homemade rustic sour-dough bread presented on slate boards. Herbs from the garden such as fennel, rosemary and sage used as decoration and centre pieces for the day. The day was elegant and relaxed with a great atmosphere. All the best things are kept simple… ‘less is more’.
We are delighted that our three couples shared their day with us at The Pilgrims Rest and it was so lovely to see The Pilgrims Rest open her doors to these beautiful weddings.
Huge Congratulations to you all! X
