Julia & Paul
I honestly don't know where to start when talking about Julia and Paul's amazing countryside wedding in Derbyshire on Saturday. The wedding took place at Knockerdown Cottages in the heart of the Peak District, a small holiday village made out of a collection of Cottages for your outdoorsy adventurer. Which when you know Julia and Paul, you realise is absolutely perfect. All the cottages were occupied by Paul and Julia's family and friends.
They started their wedding celebrations on the Friday with a huge (all be it hard) group quiz and lots of food and drink - the perfect kick off to a fab wedding weekend. The morning of the wedding was a mixed bag with the lads going on a not so easy bike ride and the lovely ladies having a relaxing morning with some pampering. Followed by a simple yet beautiful wedding ceremony. The rest of their day consisted of patches of gorgeous sunshine and short bursts of torrential rain (come on, it is Derbyshire after all, rain is the be expected and embraced). And embraced it was. Their day was filled with lots and lots of laughter, drinks and amazing food....And topped off with a freaking AMAZING jazz band, which gave all of their friends and family the chance to show off their bloody AWESOME dancing skills. I mean seriously? There wasn't a single example of Dad dancing in sight, which both astonishes and disappoints me slightly haha (Who doesn't love Dad dancing!).
But.....The wedding wasn't over yet!
The following day they had a big outdoor adventure planned, followed by more food and more drink and way more festivities. They managed to create the perfect wedding getaway for their nearest and dearest, which is such an amazing idea if you ask me! More weekend weddings please!!
I also have to mention how absolutely amazing Julia looked, she opted for an amazing off white (ivory) floral dress with sparkly flats for comfort, and one killer unstructured wild bouquet! She looked like an absolute dream and rocked her look all day long!
A HUGE thank you to all of Julia and Paul's family and friends for being both hilarious and so so welcoming. I had the best day <3
