An Eden Barn Wedding

Today though, it's the turn of sister and Primary School Teacher, and assistant headteacher Luke, who chose Little Musgrave in Cumbria for his or her elegant, easy, and rustic nuptials on 1 August 2019.


Inspired by the charming, exposed stone and vaulted ceiling from the barn, the pair effortlessly styled their wedding with greens, creams, and natural shades, in addition to making the most of the Cumbrian views.

The bride decided to keep her look simple with a few accessories apart from her gold headband and gold leaf hair clips, but she wore a bead bracelet gifted to her by her friends.

"If anyone had inquired about what I might have wanted, I'd have said something with long sleeves and quite high-necked. I know Luke was very surprised when he saw me."

"I guess it is a fact that people say; that whatever image you've in your head, you will likely end up with something the entire opposite. I certainly did but I felt amazing during my dress and was comfortable from beginning to end."

Having both attended the same high school and university in Leeds, the pair returned to Cumbria, where they were engaged, for his or her wedding.

"We are both in the same section of Leeds. Luke, however, was 2 yrs above me during my sister's year group, therefore we didn't know a lot about each other back in senior high school. Fast forward a few years and also to the Leeds Met University Campus."

"We walked past one another and there's an extended-standing joke that Luke attempted to stop and talk to me but I just said 'Hi' and continued walking (something he strongly denies, but I had witnesses!). Something he can't deny is the fact that later on that day I received a Facebook message and, as the saying goes, the remainder is history." Click

"After being together for 5 years we bought our first house in 2015. Two years after, Luke proposed around the side of Lake Windermere after having me completely convinced I was going camping with my mum. Our big day came 2 yrs after."

I am absolutely in love with using the sage bridesmaid dresses. They suit the relaxed, natural vibe of the day so perfectly and appear divine on every girl.

"I'd initially thought it was hard to find bridesmaid gowns as they can easily produce a color scheme for that wedding and that we didn't genuinely have one particular color. After long searches online I came across the embellished Maya dresses which featured some of the colors I was using for flowers. I ordered one and my sister used it on; it had been perfect."

"The bridesmaids all wanted to put on their hair down with loose curls. We bought some silver clips for these phones to put any bits of their hair back. In the morning all of us helped one another put them in."

The precious memories were caught on camera. Her dreamy, relaxed style, infused with sunlight, is romantic and timeless.

"Louise was probably the most perfect photographer we're able to have ever wanted. Louise was recommended by my brother-in-law's sister so when we saw her photographs we knew the search was over."

"Every inch in our day was captured so beautifully, from very early within the morning to well into the band's second set. When we first received the previews I was bowled over."

"They were better than we're able to have ever imagined. The excitement built for that full album. When it arrived, it felt like I was reliving your day all over again but seeing such special moments from our family and friends that we'd either forgotten or otherwise seen around the day."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"I know it's said a great deal, but don't stress the little stuff or things from your control. The day was perfect and went by so quickly so if anything, I'm so happy I was able to enjoy your day for even longer!"
