A stunning Somerset Wedding with pretty pastel details at Hestercombe Gardens

Today I am thrilled to share this stunning Somerset Wedding with pretty pastel details of peppermint green, pink and purple at Hestercombe Gardens.

The couple are Rachel and David and they wanted to join together with their family and friends in a relaxed celebration of their marriage in the  beautiful South West.

Images were captured by Kristian Leven Photography.

How did you meet?

We met on a big night out in Dublin, through mutual friends.

Tell us about the Proposal…

The proposal was on New Years Day 2018 at the Cliffs of Mohair, County Clare.

Dave took me on a secret road trip there and proposed on the top of the cliffs, there weren’t many tourists up there as the weather was awful!

My hat blew off afterwards and Dave ran after it…

Tell us about your wedding planning journey …

I read some articles for ideas and researched potential venues first.

Once we’d chosen Hestercombe Gardens we could decide a date and things fell into place around that.

Any special touches/DIY?

I designed our invitations and stationary on Canva.

I also wrote out the lyrics to 7 of our favourite songs and framed them with a number each, to act as table numbers.

What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?

There wasn’t so much a theme but there was a desire to keep things paired back and natural in terms of decoration.

We had a beautiful orangery and old barn as our venues and they were naturally light filled airy spaces, so we decided just nice seasonal flowers was enough.

Our colours were peppermint green, pinks and purples.

What was the best bit of your day?

The ceremony was really special with some beautiful readings.

Apart from that, just having all our family and friends together. And our band were fan-tastic!

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Don’t get too caught up in what other people do, there are endless articles about all the material things you can buy or have for your wedding day but we tried to focus on what was important to us through all of that noise!
