With an amazing team of vendors behind them, it’s no wonder that Bridie and Luke’s day at Willow Farm Berry was a success! Hoping to create a “relaxed party vibe with lots of live music”, this pair of music teachers hired some of the industry’s best to help pull their together.

There to capture the whole day was the lovely Ben Sowry. “He is a brilliant photographer and we just love every photo we’ve seen that he’s taken. We love his unique and candid photography style and the way he manages to capture all the little moments,” says Bridie, adding that George and Smee, Sophie Coombes and Garnish Catering were standouts as well.

“Jo and the Garnish team were fantastic. The food was sensational and Luke’s Italian family could not stop raving about the grazing table. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was well fed, and my friends who were vegetarian really appreciated how the waiters remembered who they were and continued to track them down throughout the night with all the vegetarian options.”

Rocking a stunning Rue De Seine from The Bridal Atelier, Bridie looked gorgeous as she and Luke tied the knot and, later, partied their way into the night. Having obviously learned a lot, these two leave other futures brides and grooms with this important bit of advice…

“Believe it when people tell you the day will be over before you know it! Our wedding really started the day before with the set up and dinner with close friends and family, then the wedding day went from 2pm-midnight and then people came back the next day for brunch and it STILL felt like it was over in the blink of an eye! Make the most of every single second!”
