Kelly & Henry’s Autumnal DIY Micro Farm Wedding Day

Where did you get married?

We had our ceromoney at Acrise church which was a lovely rural church. Whats crazy/special to now find out is we were the only couple to have married there in 2020 due to every wedding being cancelled due to covid!

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?

Acrise chuch has close ties to Henry’s family, with his dad growing up local to the church and Henry being baptised there. It was the natural choice to get married there given the family ties. It was also such a bueautiful church we didn’t look anywhere else. After the ceromoney, we had a small reception back at Henry’s parents farmhouse. We originally had planned a big reception back at the farm in one of the barns, but due to covid restrictions, we were limited to 15 guests. After originally planning to get married in May 2020, then postponing 2 more times to August & then May 2021, we eventually decided we couldn’t wait to be married any longer & re-organised with a couple of months notice to October 2020.

Did you have any type of theme to your day?

Living on a family farm we wanted to embrace the farm in our theme and include sheep wherever possible, from decorations, cufflinks and even having buddy our pet sheep as the ring bearer! We also managed a sneaky ride of our horses in between the church and reception! Although we originally planned for a spring wedding and changed it to autumn, we decorated the reception with hops and pumkins giving a nice autumnal feel.

How did you feel the day went as a whole?

The day as a whole was amazing but it was such a shame that we were unable to have everyone we originally wanted there. However, even with the small number of guests, we had such a special ceromoney followed by a great reception afterwards with our closeest family and friends. It truley was a memorable day we will never forget! With such few numbers, we were able to really relax and enjoy the evening dancing the night away to music in front of the fire.

What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?

Enjoy the day! Most of all, do what makes you happy
