A Beautiful Intimate Outdoor Summer Wedding at Homme House Herefordshire

 

Freya & Terry like so many other couples had their wedding date changed a few times due to the horrible C word that hit our nation. Sadly they also had to change their venue but they really did land on their feet because their wedding was held at the stunning Homme House in Herefordshire, hosted by Sarah and Charlie (who really are beyond exceptional wedding hosts).

Homme House is one of my favourite local wedding venues. It's set in gorgeous grounds at Much Marcle and is simply stunning! The gardens are amongst the nicest I have ever seen at a wedding venue and the grounds are vast; meadows, a woodland, wildflowers, rose garden, the prettiest of borders, spectacular views and a choice of locations to marry. Freya and Terry had their nearest and dearest join them for their day and they married in the walled garden beside the wildflower gardens in front of the prettiest of summerhouses. Their wedding reception was held outdoors under cover over a marquee on the lawn beside the stunning Georgian property. 

Their day featured lots of beautiful, bright and colourful florals created by Lydia at The Floral Roundabout and Freya's bridesmaids wore lots of colourful dresses too. 

Both Freya and Terry love crazy golf and they hired Original Tee to provide them with a great source of fun and gently competitive entertainment during the drinks reception, they also had a selection of garden games for guests to enjoy. Caviar and Chips provided an exquisite vegan menu for their guests and was enjoyed by all. 

We took a few moments after dinner to capture some lovely portraits around the grounds. Freya and Terry had spent hours upon hours crafting origami cranes and had them hanging both inside and out adding lots of extra detail and colour to their day. 

The biggest surprise of their day was organised by Terry's brother who is a pilot and knows the right people in the right places. He surprised everyone with a flyover by The Red Arrows (they happen to be a serious childhood love of mine originating back to my dad's passed on love of planes and some very fond memories. I even have a photo of us sat in a red arrow when we lived in Cyprus and were based on the RAF base) needless to say I was equally as delighted and bounced around a little with such an amazing experience to capture!

Smaller more intimate weddings are definitely becoming much more popular and I love an outdoor wedding too especially in such a beautiful location such as Homme House!

Are you having an outdoor wedding at Homme House or in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire or Worcestershire (or indeed further afield) - I'd love to discuss your day with you and hear your plans! 

I love small, intimate weddings and weddings in such stunning settings. Freya and Terry's day was so relaxed, filled with lots of colour, fun, making and capturing such beautiful memories for them and their wonderful families.
