English countryside camp wedding: Melissa + Rob

categories Real Weddings

rose garden invitation

Melissa + Rob’s ‘field day wedding’ is nothing short of gorgeous and probably the most kid friendly wedding we’ve seen to date. They had yurts full of toys and games set up for all 38 children attending to play in, while the adults got to enjoy the reception in a large Raj tent with hand block printing. Guests glamped, camped and ended the night around a campfire singing songs into the early hours. Almost sounds too fun to be a wedding, doesn’t it? We’re glad Clean Plate Pictures was there to capture all the details.

From the start I knew I would make everything by hand, and I searched high and low for the decorations from antique shops the world over, to my own personal collection of treasures, ebay, charity shops and the generosity of friends.

Our first dance was amazing. We hadn’t rehearsed and we picked a very difficult song to dance to (‘Go or Go Ahead’ by Rufus Wainwright). Rob tied a long ribbon around my waist and we circled each other pulling on the ribbon to pull each into the centre. It felt like something really magical had just happened and the love and support we had from our guests, was just phenomenal.

Many congrats to Melissa + Rob!

  22. It’s so thoughtful to include games for the children. You rarely see it at a wedding reception; and I think it’s so important to understand: this should be one of the best parties of your life! So plan the games. There are also thoughtful and easy-to-orchestrate games for adults.
