Hardy Country – wistful wedding

Some weddings are simply beautiful! When we saw these fabulous pics by photographer Alistair Freeman back from Caroline and Mark’s country wedding we were immediately transported into a Hardy novel with Caroline in lead role as Tess of the D’Urberville’s!

Wiltshire Wedding

With rolling countryside just outside the door the Wellington Barn on the Dorset Wiltshire border always promised scenery that was always going to be perfect – but Caroline’s gorgeous lace trimmed vintage styled dress, cottage flowers and beautifully tendrilled hair really embraced the wistful feel of a literary heroine.Tess of the d"Urbervilles?

Quite appropriate really as Caroline is a fabulous blogger with her Wandering Starrs blog hosting lots of gorgeous images and stories of travels and stay at home discoveries!

This wedding features lots of handmade and rustic elements including a chalk-board menu, bunting garlands, beautiful cottage flowers from Organic Blooms, a gorgeous traditional “courting cake” style wedding cake, ribbons, rustic boxes, tea favours, wire hearts and lashings of country charm. You can’t fail to be entranced by the scenes captured by the talented Allister Freeman Photography – these images are breathtaking!

Hardy style wedding

Of course we had to save a little chuckle for this snap – our vintage china is there to be adored on the top, bottom and sideways! We love a good china inspection – its a great way to get people remembering great aunties and grandma’s tea sets…. I think we passed muster!
