Why Ufton Court?
I used lace doilies from my Grandma and others sourced elsewhere to create bunting which hung throughout the barn. Each table had a log slice and mismatched bottles and jam jars that had lace and hessian embellishments wrapped round them, these were filled with loose floral stems by our florist.
We sourced a vintage suitcase for guests to place cards in and created a table plan by up cycling an old mirror frame. We chose to go with simple uplighting provided by our DJ and tea lights spread around the barn to merely compliment the beauty of the structure and not overwhelm it.
Our friends and family gave personal readings and we hired a string duo, Manor House Music, to play the music for the service including our hymns – Amazing Grace, I Vow To Thee My Country and Lord of All Hopefulness.

Your advice to future couples...
On the day, just embrace everything, the planning is over, if something minor isn’t quite right no one will notice anyway so just enjoy every moment and the fact that so many people who love you have come to celebrate with you.
