Hafod Farm, Barn Wedding // Helen & Steve

Wedding

We had a blast with Helen & Steven on their wedding day.  These guys got married in the picturesque Hafod Farm in the Conwy valley.  After an picnic lunch we headed out to Swallow falls in Betws-y-Coed for some photos. The multicoloured pastel bridesmaids dresses were a fantastic touch. And that cake!  This was also our first humanist wedding with Maxine Beech leading the ceremony. Not sure what a humanist wedding is? Maxine was awesome and wrote a guest post all about it.

Check out what Helen & Steve have to say about their wedding at the end of this blog.

The Proposal

Steve proposed to me on the 21st March 2016 in Rome outside the Coliseum, which was beautifully lit up at night time. He asked a passer by to take our picture but to my surprise, instead of posing for a picture he got down on one knee.

The Vision

We wanted something that represented us, Something fun and meaningful.

The Planning Process

Super easy, everyone was involved. Took the stress off me anyway.

The Venue

Hafod Farm, Betws-y-Coed. A truly unique venue, located in our favourite place.

The Dress & Accessories

The dress was a Madeline Gardner from Cambric Gowns in Mold, Shoes were Manolo Blahnik

The Groom’s Attire

Suit was from Anthony Formal Wear in Colchester

Ceremony/Readings/Music

The ceremony was lovingly created and performed by Maxine Beech, she took time to get to know us both and created a story of our time together. The readings were Winnie the Pooh read by Danielle and Les Mis read by George. The entrance music was instrumental version of Coldplay’s Sky full of stars and the exit must was Help by the Beatles.

The Bridal Party

Mother of the Bride – Gaynor (who gave me away), Maid of honour – Gail (friend), Bridesmaids Naomi (sister), Chloe & Caitlin (Steve’s Daughters) , Father of the groom – Roger, Best Man – Richard/ Frenchie (friend), Ushers – Stuart (Helen’s Brother) and Cameron (Steve’s Son)

The Flowers Decorations & Décor

Bouquets and button holes were hand made by Gemma at Love And Old Lace. Venue flowers were made by a collection of friends and family mainly my mum – Gaynor. The tea cups and tea pots were mostly from my Grandma trawling through charity shops.

The Honeymoon

Hopefully somewhere hot in December (if Steve is back from his travels in Kenya with work)

Memorable Moments

Steve giving me his last Rolo in his vows, dancing with my grandad and the hilarious silent disco. There are so many I could go on.

Advice for Other Couples

Don’t stress about it, make it personal and not a production. Have fun!
