I had been very much looking forward to Lewis & Heather’s big day at one of my favourite venues, High House Farm Brewery in Northumberland.

I had chatted to them over Skype to hear all about their plans. Heather is a zookeeper and Lewis a chef. They are both very passionate about their careers and this showed in the personal touches they brought to their wedding day.

The bridal preparations took place in a cottage in Matfen village, and there was such a buzz!

Heather’s gown was from Ronald Joyce, and she knew as soon as she put it on it was the one. She wore quirky animal print converse under her dress.

Her gorgeous wildflowers came from Eliza Blooms in DarlingtonΒ and were a real talking point.

The first time Heather’s Dad, Andy, saw her ready as a bride, it was a very emotional moment..

Scamp the dog was the perfect ring bearer, carrying the rings down the aisle in a little pouch. He was rewarded with some doggy biscuits.

The wedding car, a huge Landrover Defender, was a surprise that Heather’s Mum arranged on the wedding day. It was so perfect for the farm location.

New York is a very special place for the bride and groom and so they named their tables after their favourite NY places. They had vintage teacups and afternoon tea served in picnic style hampers. The animal sculptures are by a favourite artist of Heather’s and were the perfect decoration for a zookeepers wedding!

The father of the bride’s speech was absolutely hilarious, featuring many props!

The wedding cake was made by Lewis himself, with a gorgeous marble finish. The other cakes came from a local bakery. After the meal we went for another wander around the farm to take some couples photographs. It was a perfect Spring day, with lots of daffodils around and spring lambs.
