Michelle & William: a wedding at Lyveden New Bield

It’s definitely been too long since I shared a clip on our blog. In between the madness of the summer months, I found some time to share this little treasure with you: Michelle & William’s highlights. I love Michelle and William’s story. They had been dating for many years and went on an adventurous round the World the trip for 11 months before the tied the knot.  Adventurous might be a slight understatement, as it included being kidnapped at gun point in Brazil! But all’s well that ends well and on the last night of the trip, William got out his guitar and started singing First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes to Michelle and then proposed. You can’t help but smile now.

When their vicar said that ‘their wedding was steeped in history’, he hit the mail on the head: from the quaint 500 year old St Mary’s church in Lower Benefield to the National Trust site at the early 17th century ruin at Lyveden New Bield the settings for this wedding were very historic indeed.

But in the midst of all this historic grandeur, Michelle & William’s wedding day was wonderful, relaxed, arty and, in Michelle’s own words, rather quirky wedding. You’d be hard pressed to find a couple smiling so much on their wedding day. And they had every reason to be so cheerful: a gorgeous couple, an amazing dress unlike any other we had seen by Pronovias, awesome shoes, a vintage inspired reception in a marquee set in the stunning backdrop of Lyveden New Bield and not forgetting the wedding transport: a vintage VW camper van.  Michelle’s vision of vintage teacups, cupcakes, bales of hay combined with the muted pallet of colours worked out perfectly. And the ice cream van after dinner was the cherry on top!
