Sophie & Steve had their wedding at the gorgeous Gorwell Farm, Abbotsbury. Even with Covid regulations meaning they could only have limited numbers, they had planned a chilled-out, rustic wedding. What they hadn’t expected, was that their wedding day would officially be the wettest day in the UK since 1891!!!
Before you panic though, a few things to know, the barn has underfloor heating (I had to resist the urge to remove my shoes and just run around in my socks, the flooring was so lovely and toasty), Taddle Tents had decorated the barn with beautiful orange lights for that hygge glow, and Sophie & Steve are an amazing couple, nothing was going to stop them enjoying their day.
A huge plus with Gorwell Farm is that there are loads of self-catering cottages on-site, so Sophie got to enjoy getting pampered by Barnet & Boatrace without having to worry about a long drive to the wedding.
There was, however, still a mad dash in the rain to the barn.
We tried to sneak into without anyone noticing so Sophie could change into her wedding shoes, but we were spotted by Sully. I may have become Sully’s number 1 fan at this wedding, he is so cute!
Dry shoes now on, and officially welcomed by Sully, it was time for the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we decided to brave the rain for a mini photoshoot in the gazebo. I did say these two were awesome, and even with it being cold and wet, they couldn’t stop smiling.
Once back in the warm, it was time for the first dance.
Whilst waiting for our delicious food (seriously, Fossil Food Catering knocked it out of the park, it was so good), the guests decided that since they couldn’t get up and mingle, they would have an impromptu napkin folding lesson. Who knew that folding napkins into chickens was 2020’s must-play wedding game.
Then it was time for FOOD!
Regardless of the rain and the covid regulations, I think it’s safe to say, this micro wedding was beautiful.
