Liz & Jon at Kewstoke Church and their farm

Right in the middle of a heatwave is just about the right time to have a Marquee wedding on a farm.

We found Liz bright and early in the lovely Church House B&B next door to Kewstoke Church. Sam from the Hair Salon had already worked her magic and Sarah from Beauty Oasis was in the middle of transforming farmer Liz into a beautiful bride.

Liz’s stunning dress was Yurianna by White One (a branch of Pronovias). Liz had bought her dress from So Gorgeous Bridal in Worle.

Liz’s gorgeous little flower girl was 5 year old Adelaide who was very excited and eager to carry the bride’s dress. She stole everyone’s hearts.

We had to be extra careful when taking photos of the bride in the garden, as her groom was right next door in the churchyard with his best man and ushers.

Liz walked to the church, escorted by her lovely dad and her fabulous bridesmaids, a girl couldn’t wish to have better ladies with her on the day.

The Vicar the Rev, Geoff Eales greated Liz at the door of the church. She was beaming all the way.

They say the heat plays with your brain, well the poor vicar got names wrong twice which was amusing to say the least. He did have the good grace to poke fun at himself showing what a good sense of humour he has.

As the guests piled out into the sunshine after the ceremony, a few of the couple’s friends organised a pitchfork guard of honour for them.

We followed the newleyweds tractor to the fields that housed their cows. We were warned that they were very friendly. They were indeed. We captured a great set of images with the cows, even if one did try to pinch Liz’s bum. 

We won’t talk about the shoes……oh go on then. Liz’s shoes were accidently left behind in the field. The cows decided to play football with them, pitching one over the fence into a hedge and the other got a little muddy, but they were still intact. Thankfully Liz saw the funny side.

We also tried to capture the couple with Liz’s horses.

Can you believe this beautiful view is right in their back garden.

The couple decorated themselves. All the paper decorations were done by Liz’s sister and maid of honour Roz, she says if she never cuts out another cow shape it will be too soon. The table names were some of their favourite ladies (the cows).

The couples two dogs, Rupert the dalmation and Dexter the spaniel got in on the action too. They joined the couple on the top of the hay bale pyramid which Jon made.

The usual after dinner speeches caused much hillarity.

We invited all the guests who were willing and able to climb onto the pyramid.

One of the groomsmen Mike, has his own Mr Mikey Ice Cream van. As it was so hot, he volunteered his mum to come and serve everyone. It went down very well indeed. Fantastic ice cream, if you see him round, make sure you buy some.

With it being such a glorious day, the evening light was too good to pass up. We persuaded Liz and Jon to come out for a few evening photos.

So there you have it, epic dress, cows, horses, dogs and ice cream, I’d call that a total success of a wedding.
