Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful rustic Welsh Farm Wedding with pretty pastel details.
Images were captured by Fox and Bear Photography.
Fox and Bear Photography are Vicky & Dewi Clough, Fox & Bear, a husband and wife wedding photography team based in North Wales.
Dewi is the photographer and Vicky handles everything with post production.
For them, photography is about capturing intimate and emotive moments.
They adore natural light and love nothing more than getting outdoors and letting nature influence the photos they produce.
The couple have a relaxed, informality to their work, which allows couples to enjoy their day as it’s unfolding, safe in the knowledge that their photos will reflect the joy and love they have for each other.
I now hand over to gorgeous Bride Helen…
How did you meet?
We met online via a dating website as many people do these days.
Tell us about the proposal…
The proposal was in Rome, outside the Coliseum at night.
Steve and I had been there already but he said he really wanted to go back and see it at night time.
We headed back and when we got there he asked if I had any hand cream which I did and then asked me if I needed any before he put the lid back on (this I found out was because he was worried the ring wouldn’t fit! ).
He then asked two passers-by if they would take our picture in front of the Coliseum, I went to smile next to him and he pushed me away and got down on one knee.
The lady taking the pictures got it all, whilst her friend stood there screaming.
Tell us about your wedding planning journey...
Quite simple really, the venue was perfect for us as we wanted a fun, stress free, natural/rustic wedding.
What was the theme/colour palette of your day?
Natural, rustic with a hint of pastels.
Any DIY/special touches?
All of it. It was a very hands-on wedding.
Bouquets and button holes were hand made by Gemma at Love And Old Lace.
Venue flowers were made by a collection of friends and family mainly my mum, Gaynor.
The tea cups and tea pots were mostly from my Grandma trawling through charity shops.
I made the cutlery holders and the hangover kits.
What was best bit of your day?
The humanist ceremony, it was perfect.
Maxine Beech (our wedding celebrant) created a true representation of our relationship and most of it was kept secret till the day.
She spoke to us individually, gave us challenges, tasks and games, and spoke to our friends and came up with the perfect, fun and heartfelt ceremony, not religious or stuffy!
The readings were Winnie the Pooh read by Danielle and Les Mis read by George.
The entrance music was instrumental version of Coldplay’s Sky full of stars and the exit must was Help by the Beatles.
Other memorable moments were Steve giving me his last Rolo in his vows, dancing with my grandad and the hilarious silent disco.
Any advice you would give to future couples?
Do not stress – It really isn’t worth it! Enjoy your day as a couple and remember to have fun!
Also, get a good photographer! They will help you to re-live the day over and over again with each picture reminding you of exactly how you felt at that time.
