Ida and Tom had their hearts set on a rustic barn wedding venue in which to hold a feel-good wedding that their friends and family would enjoy. They chose Packington Moor in Staffordshire and made their dream wedding a reality!
The Perfect Setting
The happy couple knew what they wanted and it didn't take long for them to find the prime location hold their wedding reception. "It was the first venue we viewed and it left us with such a good feeling," explains Ida. "We wanted a barn wedding and Packington fulfilled all our criteria and more. We loved the rustic feel combined with great gardens and courtyard for our guests."
Dressing the Venue
Ida and Tom decided on a wonderful colour combination of light pink, mint and ivory for their wedding day and coupled it with rustic decorations to complement the venue. "We had one of our friends make bunting in the colour scheme which really suited the barn," says Tom. "We had lovely flowers from Flower Design Lichfield, logs as table centrepieces and also some of photos of us on the walls."
Looking the Part
Ida wanted a glamorous and elegant look for her wedding day and her princess-like dress certainly made sure of that. "The dress was a strapless lace and tulle A-line dress with a softly curved neckline, hand-beaded and embroidered lace with metallic threading," smiles Ida. "The bodice featured a velvet ribbon waistband and was accented with a jewelled motif. The full skirt featured cascading lace appliqués, scalloped edging and chapel length train."
The groomsmen went for the elegant and sophisticated look too with navy morning suits complete with mint cravats while the six bridesmaids looked stunning in floor-length mint dresses.
A Fun-Filled Day and Night
Ida and Tom's day went exactly to plan with their friends and family having a wonderful time celebrating. From the mouth-watering wedding breakfast and evening street food, to the first dance, the whole wedding was a huge success. "The only thing we would change if we had the chance would be to invite more friends that we did not get to invite on the day," explains Ida.
The wedding reception at Packington Moor was filled with fun and festivity as Ida and Tom danced the night away with their nearest and dearest. One thing is for certain; it was a wedding that won't be forgotten any time soon!
