India and Crispin’s countryside wedding

The wedding would be set on the banks of the river Test, in different locations amongst the estuaries and trees.

As a result, the water and wood would be the setting and had to be celebrated alongside a love of travelling and music. The bride and groom were insistent on a non-traditional wedding from the ceremony; a woodland service, through to the food.On arrival at the house after the ceremony, you could hear the sounds of the folk band coming from the wooded grove. Winding pathways led you to the teepee tents and campfires where the band played, drinks were served and simple canapés made from the freshest ingredients were devoured. Celebrating land and sea; radishes, asparagus, scallops and locally sourced vegetables were on the menu and these delights were only just a sample of things to come.

Guests dined in a yurt built over a stream, accessed only by walking over a bridge. As night fell the fields were transformed into a sea of candles and revellers danced under the full moon. Hot tea was served around the bonfire while Indian dancers and drummers performed on the river bank. The following day guests returned to our wooded paradise for Bloody Marys and blues music.
