Katrin Jedamzik (known as Katy), 36, married George Chichester, 36, at St Mary's Church Fairford on 17th June, 2017, followed by a reception at Jenner's Barn.
For our reception, we wanted a simple yet beautiful venue that we could customise ourselves with plenty of personal touches and enough space for the 60 children! We decorated both the barn and the marquee with tassels and bunting – it looked so pretty.
Our favours were wildflower seed packets with the words 'Sow in Love' printed on them to reflect our love of nature and to tie in with our rustic country theme. We also had packets of Original Polo Mints saying 'Mint to Be' as a reminder of our university days when George was never without a packet of them!
We gave our flowers as gifts for everyone who was camping to take away the next morning. We also gave them personalised hangover kits and treated them to organic toiletries in the bathrooms.
We had a children's marquee decorated with bunting and filled with traditional toys, games and craft activities, a separate marquee for the adults and bell tents for our glamping guests, which looked so cute!
George and his groomsmen wore three-piece wool suits in charcoal grey with coral pink ties. George is an aeronautical engineer so wore aeroplane cufflinks as a nod to his work. The groomsmen each received a pair of cufflinks engraved with their initials to wear and keep afterwards as their thank you gifts. They all enjoyed their stay at the Kings Head the night before the wedding.
Our wedding stylist Lizzy May created our table plans. Each one was displayed in a vintage frame, placed in wooden crates and draped in flowers to make a statement feature at the entrance to the barn.
Our centrepieces were log slices and small vases of flowers to allow enough room for the sharing platters on the table from The Wild Oven, which were centrepieces in themselves.
We had the perfect mix of romantic wildflowers in blush and pastel tones to set our colour theme. They were displayed in milk churns at the church and were then transported to the venue. We also had a cute vintage bicycle with a basket full of flowers outside the church and an amazing floral arch at the barn.
Our four-tier, semi-naked cake included all of our favourite flavours including gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free lemon drizzle, salted caramel, chocolate and Victoria sponge. We also had a cake made of cheese.
The Cotswold Children's Party Company had staff on hand to organise the craft activities in the children's tent. In the evening, they turned it into a movie tent followed by a sleepover for my children and their friends. We also had the children's entertainment company Sharky & George, which did an amazing job of keeping them amused with a tug of war and giant parachute games in the field, followed by a pizza picnic as their main meal.
Our wedding stylist Lizzy May recommended the wonderful dressmaker Lisa Keating who designed my dream dress after seeing lots of examples of ones I liked. It was 1950s style with a bateau neckline and layers of tulle under the skirt. It felt so comfortable and I could dance and play with the children in it. I teamed my dress with handmade vegan leather blue shoes, Swarovski earrings, a crystal bracelet from Liberty in Love and a bouquet of seasonal wildflowers with sweet peas and peonies.
Our bridesmaids wore blush dresses from Ralph Lauren and various high street companies that my dressmaker Lisa then altered to fit. She even made one suitable for breastfeeding! I enjoyed my time spent with them at The Village Pub where I got ready.
We had an ice cream trike that was perfect for the hot weather, and we also served cream teas on the lawn.
Our first dance was to You Are My Woman by Danko Jones and Michelle from the Dance Factory put together a fun routine for us to perform!
I walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon by the German composer Johann Pachelbel
George and my children have been playing guitar together for a few years so they kicked off the evening reception with Back In Black by AC/DC. This was followed by a performance by my children's music teacher Steve Treble's band called The Harrisons who kept the dancefloor full all night. It was much more fun and personal having family and friends being part of our wedding entertainment.
