Handcrafted UK wedding: Tori + Oli

Categories   Real Weddings

Not everyone happens to live near a ruined church overlooking the countryside, but should you be as lucky as today’s bride (or know someone that has access to such a treasure), we’d highly recommend saying your ‘I Do’s’ alongside such pretty historical remains. It might sound like a far-fetched idea, but when you see these photos by Caught the Light, you might just flip your lid. The landscape and flowers alone are enough to call it magical, but then there’s the guests’ fashion, chocolate truffle cake, absolutely stunning bride + groom, and a bounty of cute handmade felt hearts that make this wedding ace!

Tori grew up on the farm just below the hill that holds the above ruined church and had always known it was where she would get married. Can you imagine?

Such cute and simple invites designed by Tori herself!

Don’t you just love the fashion that’s going on in these guest shots?

We tried to use colour in a modern way by just having pops of colour coming from the flowers and accessories. The flowers were supplied by Oli’s Granddad who is a very talented Dahlia breeder. He actually named a new Dahlia after me, “Norfolk Bride” which I had in my bouquet. I didn’t want the flowers to be too structured – we wanted an outdoor, picked from the garden, rustic wild theme!

My dad lovingly restored a series one Land Rover for us to leave the church in – something he’d always dreamed of doing and using at my wedding.

My Mum and I made coloured felt heart badges for wedding favors – which were also used as napkin rings.

This moist chocolate truffle goodness of a cake was made by good friend Georgina Fuggle. It was her first time making a wedding cake!

I love the candy table. Definitely a different look than many I have seen in the past. And I am a sucker for gummie candy!

Every bride should have Charlie as a friend and bridesmaid. The color, fabric, and style of those bridesmaid dresses are amazing in every way. Beauty everywhere for Tori and Oli!

I have looked a hundreds of weddings on various blogs, magazines, etc. but this is, hands down, by far, my favorite of all time. What absolute exquisitivity (if that isn't a word, it should be!). Thank you for sharing!

This wedding is beautiful! But... I'm not going to lie. The cake looks like a Dalek.

I adore Chloe's photography - and this wedding is beautiful. I really love the Bride's floral headress, and the subtle splashes of bold colour. It's gorgeous!

Lovely wedding! Where is the venue??? I just wonder because you can't usually have outdoor ceremonies (legally binding ones anyway) in England, so is this a registered civil ceremony site?

Tori {wellies and vogue} on Sep 8, 2011

eeee thanks so much for wanting to feature our wedding - we had so much fun creating it and can't thank Chloe enough for capturing it so beautifully.. Judy - the church, even though it's a ruin, is still consecrated so we were able to have a religious service up there. The registry book in the local church down the road has the churches name on it so can be used there. I was also christened up there and there's the odd harvest festival over the years. It's on a hill in Norfolk. Thanks again x
