After four years together Thomas Brown popped the question to Rebecca Rex on her birthday in 2013. “It was a Sunday in November and he'd arranged for all of our closest friends and family to get together for a roast in our local pub,” recalls Rebecca. “He was acting suspicious that day, little did I know he'd asked my dad's permission that morning and proposed in front of everyone. It was a total surprise.”
The happy couple tied the knot on 11th July, 2015, at Cold Ashton Church, followed by a reception at the family farm Beeks Farm.
The table names were printed on brown card and hung with a small peg along a line of string to create a table plan – in keeping with the rustic theme.
The flowers were arranged in a wild, loose style in bright colours with plenty of foliage and were dotted about the tipis in jars.
Our centrepieces were slices of wood surrounded by small jars, tea light candles and flowers. We also had the table numbers in a smaller version standing on each table.
We managed to find a lot of old milk churns so we bought them back to life with a bit of cleaning and filled them with flowers leading the way into the field. And we had hay bales galore!
The bridesmaids had simple bouquets of gypsophila fastened with twine. My bouquet was very natural-looking, using spray roses, peonies and hydrangea.
We had handmade bunting incorporating the colour palette of the wedding hung across the three tipis, the entrance way and the bar.
Our cake was a three-tiered naked cake with layers of fresh berries and a clotted cream and jam filling.
We had a live band – which my dad is a member of – that performed lots of Irish classics chosen by Tom. We also had a DJ who played lots of dancefloor hits into the early hours of the morning.
