Wedding Wednesday - Sandra and Martins Intimate Barn wedding


Wedding Wednesday Real Bride Wedding InspoThis Wedding Wednesday I am so happy to share with you the beautiful day I shared with one of best friends Sandra and her wonderful, now husband Martin.

Sandra & Martin met online 10 years ago and spent a few years going back and forth between Birmingham and Nuneaton until Martin made the move to join Sandra in Birmingham. I remember Martin proposed pretty quickly but as Sandra says "I made him wait 10 years and he passed the test of time" 

I asked Sandra to tell us a little about the choices they made for the day itself - As an older bride and groom and both being married before, we decided we wanted a ceremony in one location and we wanted it to be more about the celebration than the formality. We found a relaxed location in the beautiful setting of the Jinney ring craft centre in Bromsgrove.

It has a lovely barn with conservatory on the back and lovely grounds with 2 duck ponds. I chose a baby pink colour scheme and the theme was about having a fun night, we had a magician, band and casino so it catered for all ages.

Sandra chose her shoes before she had even chosen her wedding dress! She wore Trixie-Belle and a beautiful polka dot, vintage style tea length dress from the house of Mooshki. She looked amazing and said "I felt like a princess even at the age of 54"

Thank you to Sandra and Martin for letting me share your special day with you. Rachel xx
