For Rosie and Sam, the goal was simple: a fun, relaxed day with no formalities and a whole lot of good times. “No seating plans, no stuffy sit down meals, no bridal party, no fancy cake  we wanted everyone sitting in the garden with their shoes off having a beer or some bubbles and enjoying each other’s company,” explains Rosie, adding that it was “love at first sight” when the couple laid eyes on Victoria’s Butterland.

Katie and Greg (the owners of Butterland) were brilliant  they went above and beyond to make sure it went smoothly and did so much work behind the scenes on the day getting everything to run seamlessly,” says the bride, who went on to tell us that Katie isn’t just a great venue owner but an amazing florist too!

“Katie AKA Katie Marx Flowers is just an absolute visionary when it comes to flowers  we didn’t really know what we wanted but she worked some serious magic and it was just so beautiful.”

With photos by the oh so talented Brown Paper Parcel as well as catering by Pot & Pan and cinematography by Zoe Coldham, it’s easy to understand why the couple were so over the moon with their A-Team of vendors. Their advice? “Get married  it’s the best!”
