Kate and Liam's Wedding Festival
Beginning my placement here at I Do, this was my first event – and what an event to start on! We headed on up to Kent, where it was all hands-on deck to ensure Kate and Liam’s vision was created perfectly for their big day.
For the entire weekend, the bride, groom, and most of the guests stayed in the luxurious Great Higham Barn – a charming, country cottage, with the perfect mixture of modern and traditional decor. It was safe to say the wedding party would never suffer from boredom at the weekend, with there being a multitude of leisurely activities to choose from: a dip in the wood fired hot tub, a swim in the outdoor swimming pool, or even a game of tennis on the tennis court. It was truly the VIP lifestyle for these guests!
And then Saturday was upon us. The sun was shining, the prosecco was being popped, and after getting all glammed up, the guests began heading on out of the barn for Kate and Liam’s special day!
Starting the day off with refreshing Gin and Tonic welcome drinks, the guests chatted and mingled, along with acoustic live music, adding to the excitement of Kate’s impending arrival!
When everyone had filtered over to the picturesque woodland blessing area, the wedding was well underway! Guests sat on the straw bales, eagerly trying to catch a glimpse of the blushing bride. One by one, the bridesmaids would make their way down the aisle, eventually followed by the bride herself.
It was then confetti galore as Kate and Liam made their way towards our ‘Pimp Your Prosecco’ station, for their first celebratory drink as Mr and Mrs Evans! The bubbles were flowing, the delicious canapes were gobbled up, and it was then time for the long-awaited speeches. Some hilariously embarrassing just as they should be, some incredibly heartfelt – it was the perfect mix!
After stomachs had been filled to brim, the evening got into full swing. Tom Martin started his acoustic set, the outdoor games were set up for the kids (we’ll pretend the adults weren’t just as, if not more excited for them) and the wine was most definitely flowing.
After the bride’s bouquet was thrown (we had first aid kits ready for any brutal shoving from the women at this moment!), everybody then flocked to get their ice cream cone from Cole and Son’s trailer on wheels.
And then it was pizza time! It was a massive hit with our guests, using our wood-fired pizza oven to make delicious homemade pizzas with whatever and however many toppings guests wanted.
The party really got started when, along with the DJ, our band hit the stage following Tom Martin’s fantastic set (which gave him a multitude of groupies, fangirling over his incredible voice). Big Macs Wholly Soul Band did a fantastic job at getting the guests up onto the dance floor – and once they were up, it was hard to get them off it!
There was an initial panic for the guests when the music stopped at midnight, worrying the festivity was over. However, we proved that the party had barely even started until the silent disco commences!
Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day Kate and Liam, and huge congratulations to the both of you. It was such a fantastic day and one that none of us will forget anytime soon!
