Millie and Ash
The couple opted for a countryside and rustic-inspired wedding day using a colour palette of ivory, greens and browns.
When it came to their wedding day, Millie and Ash knew exactly what they wanted – a relaxed countryside wedding with all their friends and family. The couple were keen to get their nearest and dearest involved in the big-day too, to create a celebration that really reflected the two of them as a couple…
Clock Barn was the perfect fit for Millie and Ash. As the couple both came from farming backgrounds, there were keen to find a venue that reflected their family life and personalities. While they first thought this might be difficult, they found everything they’d dreamed of at Clock Barn.
“It was the first venue we saw and we knew it was ‘the one’. It was simply stunning.” – Millie
To complement the countryside surroundings of Clock Barn, and the rural feel of the day, the couple opted for a countryside and rustic-inspired wedding day. To create the look they used a colour palette of ivory, greens and browns.
The wedding flowers, which featured on the tables, were actually designed and put together by Millie’s mum in the days running up to the wedding. Other friends and family members helped with the rest of the décor.
“We didn’t need to dress the venue much as it was stunning all on its own.” – Millie
With a natural, earthy colour scheme in mind, Millie decided to steer clear of white and opt for a mocha-coloured wedding gown with an ivory lace overlay. She also switched her shoes after the ceremony and changed into cowboy boots for the rest of the day!
Like Millie, Ash embraced the country look too, in tweed. Along with his groomsmen, he wore a tweed jacket, green tweed bow tie, white shirt, brown trousers, and brown shoes.
Complementing Millie’s choice of attire, her two bridesmaids and two flowers girls also wore ivory, fitting in with the natural hues of the day.
Millie arrived at the venue in true country style as she hopped out of a Landrover Defender. One of the things she was most excited about was spending a whole day celebrating with all her favourite people.
The couple tied the knot in the barn, before going on to enjoy drinks and canapés outside and a delicious three-course wedding breakfast. Millie and Ash opted for a starter of seasonal soup, followed by a traditional beef roast dinner and a dessert of sticky toffee pudding.
With games and gymnastics out on the lawn and a whole evening of dancing on the dance floor, there was plenty of fun to be enjoyed throughout the pair’s celebrations.
“Walking down the aisle and seeing Ash’s face definitely had to be the standout moment of the day for me.” – Millie
Millie’s Final Thoughts…
“The day was perfect – our only regret was that we didn’t make it a week long event!”
