A Midsummer Night’s Dream + Shakespeare inspired wedding at Owlpen Manor, Cotswolds

Midsummer Night’s Dream inspired Wedding at Owlpen Manor…

Afternoon folks!

Today we have the smashing wedding of Sonnie & Max who celebrated their marriage at Owlpen Manor in the Cotswolds.

Their day was filled with an abundance of flowers, garden games, street food, magic tricks and Shakespeare references.

Over to Max and Sonnie to tell us more about their day…

How did you meet?

Both of us come from Somerset, but weirdly we didn’t meet there. We actually met at Italia Conti Drama School, where we both trained as actors. 

How did you get engaged?

We got engaged on a trip to Loch Awe, in Scotland. Sonnie had booked the holiday, so I had the perfect cover. It was pouring with rain during a trek up to Avich waterfall and I almost delayed, because it was so stormy, but the waterfall is stunning and I went for it. As I went down on one knee the rain stopped and the sun came out. Magic!

Was there an overall theme to your day?

We played with ideas around Shakespeare’s plays and locations. All the tables were locations and all the guests had their own character. Our favourite was casting our 1yr old Nephew as Falstaff, a belching drunkard. 

Everything else was set around A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We tried as much as possible

Stephanie and Luke’s Laidback Pub Wedding with Rustic + Bohemian Styling…

Relaxed Pub Wedding…

Good morning and welcome to another unique real wedding instalment here on the blog! Today we have the absolute pleasure of sharing Stephanie and Luke’s laidback, beautifully bohemian, pub wedding with you, captured by the wonderful Marni V Photography. Her relaxed and informal style suited this couple perfectly, as she describes herself as offering ‘Fun, Creative, Alternative Wedding Photography for the Crazy In Love‘. And speaking of love, you can just feel it radiating from these two…just look at the way they give each other that ‘look’!

I absolutely adore Stephanie’s flower choices, as she’s picked simple yet sophisticated petals and foliage that work against the bare table setting so well. The couple were actually on a lower-than-average budget too, although you would never know it with this beautiful pub wedding! This wedding is super effortless, vintage-boho chic at it’s best. And let’s not forget the invitation of the couple’s dog please – I am a HUGE dog lover, so pet-paws at a wedding gets a big smile and a firm thumbs up from me!

So happy to hand over to photographer Marni and bride Stephanie to tell you all about the day in a little more detail….
