Dave + Nic |
The Odd Wheel
As i approached White Dove Barns the sun was shining and the sky was blue, what more can you ask for on your wedding day!
The bride was so calm and relaxed on the day and she was laughing and joking with her sister, mum & dad. They enjoyed bacon sandwiches & salmon for the bride which i had to say made my belly grumble it smelt amazing, followed by a glass of champagne cause every bride wants some champagne on her wedding day!
As the morning progressed the atmosphere remained calm, and everyone was laughing and joking, the brides dad even got his saxophone out and gave use a little song which i have to say he was very good, he even drew a picture of it which you can see in the photos below!
Nic choose a beautiful full length satin off white dress with some beautiful lace around the top on the neck and the bodice, very classic and very elegant. As you can see from the photos it really looks beautiful on her and really flatters her, she choose to pair it with a beautiful ruby + pearl necklace and earring set.
There were also many beautiful little details which i have to say always make a wedding super special not only to the bride but also to the family and her guests, As a surprise for their wedding day dave had given nic a customised musical composition of there favourite song it was beautiful and it was on black card with the composition in gold leaf, a beautiful thing they can treasure for the rest of there life.
Nic had her hair decorated with some fresh white flowers which looked really in keeping with her fascinator, It was really special to watch nic and her mum get ready together for nic special day, mum even started crying when she had seen how beautiful nic looked. Such a touching moment that I'm sure they will remember for a long time.
We headed to the venue to where nic and dave first met so you can see why they choose this quirky pub in wembury as their place to get married and celebrate the rest of their lives together. As we approached the odd wheel the best man was in waiting for nic to arrive he had some shots ready to calm the nerves, as soon as nic entered she burst into tears, the feelings of being where she first met dave all flooding back to her what a special moment.
After a cuddle from nic's sister and a shot from the best man all was well again and she was ready to make her vows to the love of her life dave.
As Nic walked down the isle you could see dave's face light up and so did hers what a truly special connection this couple have, it was really magical to watch. There was lots of laughing and happiness during the ceremony, everyone was embracing their special day i really love that they had decorated the isle with hay bales for seating for the guests, there were beer canisters with apples on and a black board with the ghostbusters logo on it, i think this was a personal joke between the couple and their family & friends.
After the exchange of rings and the seal of the deal the kiss nic + dave enjoyed a beautiful array of hymes from the pastor of their church everyone really embraced the hymes and joined in with the singing.
The guests all made their congratulations and then all started to grab some of the drinks that were available, some were in really cool displays like beers in wheel barrels with mountains of ice to keep them cool there was also an appearance from the devon vintage ice cream van which i have to say was the coolest ice cream van I've seen, with its vintage bunting and sweet little accessories, they also make their own ice creams for their brides and groom of there favourite flavours so which would you choose!
I love the personalised sign you can see pictured below congratulating nic and dave on there special day, to say the ice creams went down a treat would be an understatement, i think everyone needs an ice cream van on there special day. Young and old waited to have a taste of there ice creams.
Even nic got in on the action and climbed into the van to serve dave an ice cream of his choice, i think he could get used to that, i love the photos of nic in the driving seat and checking her makeup in the mirror.
The bride and groom then heading down to the gorgeous national trust beach that is wembury its a shingle beach but that doesn't take away from its charm, with its beautiful views and buildings it really does make for a picturesque beauty spot.
It was nice to see Nic + Dave have a quiet moment to talk about all the things they had been upto in the morning and laugh about things together, they even bumped into an old friend at the beach.
It was a special day had by all and we wish Nic + dave all the happiness and love for their future together as Mr + Mrs Orchard
