Inspired by the atmosphere of Christmas time, Rachel and Andy set out to create a day that was all about hanging with their friends and family in a super relaxed manner. That being said, that two steered clear of tradition and formal proceedings.

“We chose to have a picnic to help facilitate this atmosphere (who doesn’t love a picnic?!). I found my style changed during the engagement, going from a rustic perspective, to a love for all things bohemian. However, most things had been locked in with the original theme in mind,” explains Rachel, who recruited Covet and Collect to help her pull of her and Andy’s awesome day.

“I have known Ben for many years and his wife Ebony has a styling and hire business called Covet and Collect. Therefore it was an easy decision to choose them because they are phenomenal at what they do. I could safely rely on them to produce what I was looking for,” says Rachel, adding that, funnily enough her favourite memory from the day was leaving the reception.

“The day was better than I imagined and I was smiles all day, but there is nothing better than being able to talk to the one you love most about your day. Andy and I have always done this. We are each others journals. So being able to talk about what we liked, how we felt, who we talked to, and how we witnessed the day personally was so refreshing and intimate.”

Captured by Folklore Weddings, there’s no doubt that Rachel and Andy’s day was one for the history books…two gorgeous outfits (from Made with Love Bridal and Keepsake the Label), great eats via Complete Cuisine Carvery, heaps of DIY and one couple, head over heels in love.
