A Gorgeous Garden Wedding at the Family Home ~ Richard & Renata

Simple, chic and stunning are just three words that spring to mind when thinking of Richard and Renata’s sunny Sussex wedding at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Warminghurst, with celebrations at home in Washington, West Sussex.

We’re pretty sure that most brides and grooms have wished that they had space to host their low-key and laid back family celebrations in the relaxed setting of their home, and for these two this was clearly an easy decision to make – their garden is bloomin’ gorgeous!

To hear more about this gorgeous Sussex garden wedding, we pass over to beautiful bride Renata:

We chose to get married in Sussex as Richard grew up in West Sussex and it’s where we both now live.

All of our wedding suppliers were selected after numerous hours of online research, trawling Pinterest and leafing through magazines.

Our wedding had a vintage country garden theme, which was emphasised with natural colours, lavender and lots of handmade touches.

We made our save the dates, invitations, favours, table plans, signs, table names, lavender wreaths and even our very own wedding car number plate!

To any brides looking to get creative and crafty: make sure you leave enough time to make things! Also, make sure you understand what you are taking on by making bespoke things yourself.

What I enjoyed most about planning our wedding was…  Planning decorations, coming up with new ideas and buying bits and pieces that made the place look amazing on the day.

My least favourite part of wedding planning had to be… looking for wedding suppliers that matched our requirements.

If we could do it all again we would. It was well worth it!
