Second time marriage for Bev, she wanted to ensure her wedding day to the love of her life farmer, Richie, was all that they dreamed of. With Bev a cake maker, she has flair and vision how she wanted her personality to shine, so an art deco theme was arranged.

The couple wanted to have their wedding reception in the grounds of their home in Bampton, and with their vast gardens and grounds Richie set to work to level an area ready for the marquee to be installed.

Meanwhile Bev was busy arranging and making the favours for the adults and children, decor themed mirrors, floral love signs, sweet cart table, and decor for their wedding breakfast arrangements and all the flower arrangements.

As time was getting closer, Bev decided she needed a professional to manage the big day so brought on board Amanda-Louise's skills as an expert wedding planner who oversaw all of Bev's arrangements with her team, so the big day ran smoothly. Read and watch the video, how their home wedding day full of love and laughter sprang to life....

Love Notes

Words from Bride Bev:

"I loved every minute. I’m sure you dealt with plenty of things I didn’t know about. You did a fabulous job. People were very impressed with you, they thought you had the right balance of authority, so people listened to you, and fun.  I thought you were amazing, Thank you. We had so many lovely comments on the wonderful job you did. I’m so happy you were able to do it. Bev xx"
