Would they or wouldn’t they? The outdoor ceremony decision seemed to change every few minutes as the unsettled weather kept hinting at bright skies then swiftly turning into a downpour. They decided to brave it, and 20 minutes before the ceremony the weather decided to stay perfect for the remainder of their wedding day at the Manor House Hotel in Moreton in Marsh.
It was the idyllic Cotswolds ceremony that Michelle and Ben had been dreaming of. When I first met them, Michelle was half way through her wedding invites- a laser cut style, but each lovingly cut by hand rather than any machine, meaning weeks of work. Their wedding was full of artistic and meaningful DIY projects- fan style order of services, signs with cute relationship stats, their own couple quiz on the tables, framed wedding pics of their parents & grandparents, individual hessian confetti bags, homemade limoncello… so many really great ideas.
Below is a pick of my favourite photos… The list of their fab suppliers is at the end of this post.
