Bride and groom leaning on hay bales in farm

Although it’s only been two weeks, it seems like ages since we featured a real wedding, but we’ve got lots of amazing real wedding features coming up, starting with this gorgeous wedding photographed by Gather West Photography. Laurie and Tim’s wedding took place at the Philo Apple Farm in California, and was a simple yet beautiful wedding which made the most of the natural beauty of the surroundings…

“We wanted our wedding to feel similar to our lifestyle. It was simple, classic, romantic, and in northern California’s wine country; it’s just so naturally beautiful here, and we are also spoiled by the quality of food and wine. Our wedding venue was The Philo Apple Farm, who also provided food and flowers. The venue was perfect for our French country theme.

“My dress was by Alice and Olivia; Champagne colour, silk, with a peekaboo back, and personalised with Vintage French metal lace from the 1800’s on the waist and buttons.”
