Yesterday we featured this surprise wedding and talked a bit about how they are simply our favourite kind of wedding but not far behind is the the quaint family farm wedding! They always have such a laid back joyous vibe about them and Kiri and Andy’s wedding, photographed by Hello May fave John Benavente, is no different.
Together for five years and three babies, “we’ve been busy” says Kiri, this happy family planned on hell of a DIY wedding. “Wow there were a lot! remembers Kirri, “from the home made sign posts to the stitched table numbers and everything inside the marquee. I made tons of hand made dream catchers, from vintage curtains, table clothes and lace as well as macrame lanterns and place settings. Andy’s mum sewed 100 floral napkins, made metres and metres of bunting and 100 jars of home made jam from oranges we hand picked! The bridal party spent a whole morning doning all the surrounding trees with hand made lanterns and filling them with little torches so they lit up the drive way at night, it was really magical”.
Magical indeed. Kiri, who wore a gorgeous Amanada Garrett gown, goes on to tell us “the vibe was very gypsy festival meets garden party. We had a few musicians and lawn games set up and our event designer, She Designs, set up some vintage couches and teepees it all fitted so well!”
Not even freak hail storm could ruin their day! Groom Andy tells us “my all time favourite moment was when it started hailing just after we said our vows, it was a just a freak 5 minute thing, but it was so perfectly timed, it was like the sky was raining confetti on us.”
