Allie & James had a fun village fete themed wedding in Southampton on a sunny summers day. They were married at St Mary’s Church in Sholing and were driven in a vintage model T ford to Bradgate Manor in Southampton for the marquee reception. Out on the lawn guests could play splat the rat, have a space hopper race and have a go on the wedding party coconut shy. In the marquee Allie had made all the table decorations, with pretty birdcages entwined with flowers, tealights, and jam jars of purple wildflowers. Each guest had a handmade fabric bird and a packet of seeds as favours. The ceiling was festooned with beautiful bunting in vintage floral prints, and there were sweet little touches like homemade colouring books for the children, and pashminas for chilly shoulders. All the planning was worth it, the day was fun and relaxed, and went from a summer’s afternoon garden party to an evening party, everyone dancing the night away to the band.
