About the Wedding
Sarah & George met through Tinder while living and working in Sheffield. Their first date was to the Christmas markets and on Sarah’s birthday in 2018, George got down on one knee while she was still in her pyjamas and asked her to marry him! The couple chose Crockwell as their venue. They felt that it gave them the “perfect combination of having the most relaxed atmosphere, while being impeccably well organised.” They also loved “the rural setting, orchard ceremony location and equally picturesque indoor vaulted barn to take the pressure off the weather.” Use of the venue the afternoon before the wedding was also a big plus “decorating the venue with our families and bridal party the day before was so special, as was having breakfast together the morning after. It gave us much more time together and so many more memories, as the day itself flies by.”
When planning their wedding theme, Sarah says “we wanted a relaxed day full of flowers and colour, with lots of handmade personal touches. We folded 1000 origami cranes which we hung from the marquee lining and used as place settings – a mammoth task but it was a real talking point of the day! Our florist (Little Garden Flowers) used all locally grown flowers and we chose a bright and summery colour palette, with meadow style arrangements at the top of the aisle.”
The weather was kind and the couple were able to say their vows in perfect sunshine in the Orchard. The bride looked stunning in her Emma Hunt dress from Boho Bride Boutique which she had adapted with some additional lace edging. The groom wore a Hugo Boss suit and shoes while the groomsmen and pageboy’s suits were from Next. The wedding party enjoyed music from Taylormade Accoustic Duo during reception drinks in the garden before heading into the marquee for their wedding breakfast.
Our huge thanks to Sarah & George for allowing us to share their wedding with you, and to their photographer, Liam Smith who has captured the joy of this special wedding in the these wonderful images. The couple have a few words of advice for the newly engaged: “choose a venue and suppliers that you really trust as this takes so much of the pressure off in the lead up. Make it your mission to really enjoy the planning process and add in some personal touches if you can – they will be really noticed by your guests and make the day feel much more ‘you.’”
