A Gorgeous Green Wedding
The wedding day dawned bright and sunny last Saturday for Sarah and Paul who chose to celebrate their union in the beautiful setting of Coombe Farm Woodlands, an organic farm near Tiverton in Devon.
Because you still can't legally marry, according to English law, in an outside setting, Sarah and Paul were first married in a civil ceremony, witnessed by a small group of close friends and family, at Tiverton registry office the day before their wedding celebration. Friday evening saw this group arrive at Coombe Farm where they all stayed for the whole weekend in the ancient farmhouse.
As well as using the beautiful 17th Century Barn at Coombe Farm for the celebrations, Over The Moon Tents & Events supplied a yurt for the chill out zone, a cute Merlin tent for the kids, flags and music and, whilst they are not immediately local, they certainly reflect Sarah and Paul’s ethical interests and supplied everything they needed to enhance the festival feel of the whole day.
The festival feel grew as guests arrived early to set up camp in the field alongside the yurt and dining tent completing the arc around the stone circle. The campsite was supplied with the best of all luxury mobile composting loos supplied by Thunderbox2Go. Instead of having a wedding gift list, guests were encouraged by Paul and Sarah to pay for trees to be planted by the Woodland Trust, offsetting the carbon miles they generated to attend the wedding.
