Sometimes you just know. You know that when you meet a couple, even if it’s a year in advance, you’re going to have a great time with them and their big day.

Amy and Richard were one of those couples. As we sat on the sofa at Deighton Lodge back in 2017 and talked through their plans, I just got such a great vibe from them, I couldn’t wait for their day to arrive.

Roll onto May this year and said day was upon us. I popped down to the barns on the Friday, to go through their final plans and layout as its really helpful to me to visualize where suppliers are going and how to smoothly run certain aspects of the timeline based on where things are.

It was the first time I’d seen a couple plan out the tables the way these two had and I was very impressed with how pretty it looked. They made fantastic use of the barn’s space and I loved their colour injections and finishing touches.

The suppliers the couple had also chosen were a perfect fit and I’ll always have a soft spot for Hog and Apple given they did my own wedding food.

A huge thank you to the couple and to Craig from Mr & Mrs Wedding Photography for allowing me to use these pictures on my site. I think you’ll agree they are absolutely stunning but that is always helped when your couple is as fun as they were – it just shines through!
