A beautiful Autumnal day
Posted on 27 October 2017
As the last of the grey clouds drifted overhead yesterday, Katherine took her last drive as Miss Brodie accompanied by dad in a beautiful 1930s car. She was joined by her gorgeous bridesmaids dressed in navy blue and beautiful little flower girl with her basket of flowers.
With guests seated in the barn on chairs with very seasonal burnt orange and jute bows courtesy of stylists KWF, it was time for the lovely ladies to make their way down the aisle. After one last deep breath, Katherine was escorted by her dad towards her betrothed and the two were married in front of their family and friends.
Following the ceremony, guests headed out into the crisp autumn sunshine to enjoy a drink from the oak cooler and canapes on the terrace while photographs were taken. There was even time for a quick kickabout before the wedding breakfast was served.
Guests found their seats with the help of a pretty, handmade seating plan and tables were named after the Norfolk Broads. The Bride and Groom had left a little gift on each place setting in the form of a selection of little seed packets including seasonal pumpkin seeds and Peter’s passion – chilli seeds.
Centrepieces of buckets of flowers on wooden slices with mini pumpkins and pine cones added to the Autumnal scheme and complimented the barn beautifully.
The menu included potted gammon to start, slow cooked beef cheek for main course and chocolate and salted caramel tart for dessert with Argentinian Malbec or Italian Pinot Grigio to wash it down! Although the most popular option remained the childrens’ ice cream sundaes!
With coffee served and a glass of fizz in hand, the Father of the Bride shared a few anecdotes about Katherine and Peter and included a lovely few words from Katherine’s Grandfather’s journals. Peter also had a toast to share from a relative that was unable to be at the wedding before the Best Man concluded the speeches.
After a stunning sunset, guests made their way back out onto the terrace to admire the hand carved pumpkin lantern before gathering to witness the Bride and Groom cut their cake.
The Bride and Groom danced their first dance together as husband and wife then invited their nearest and dearest to join them on the dance floor then it was soon time to head back out to the Barbecue Lodge to enjoy the sausage sizzle table and good old Southwood S’mores.
A beautiful Autumnal day for a lovely couple, we wish you every happiness Mr and Mrs Sellex.
