Trenderway Lauren and Matt
Lauren and Matt both live in Plymouth so they looked at venues across Devon and Cornwall. They found Trenderway whilst researching photographers. They booked a viewing and after being shown around by Jaqueline they just knew it was the venue for them and booked it the very same day!
Lauren and Matt got engaged at Glastonbury, they both love festivals and camping so their theme was relaxed farm festival and Trenderway was the perfect fit.
"We loved the rustic, farm vibes and could imagine the relaxed and informal style of wedding that we wanted there. Jacqueline was knowledgeable and really helpful so we felt in safe hands"
Emma Barrow was their photographer, one of Lauren's school friends Lauren just knew she wanted Emma to photograph her wedding even before she was engaged!
"I loved the style of her work and it was important to me that she knew me, our style and what we liked so we felt relaxed on the day in her company."
The wedding breakfast was catered by the Fox & Hound Inn a recommendation from a friend Lauren and Matt had eaten there before and knew they had a good reputation. "I enquired for a quote and was really happy with the price. It was fantastic value for money and every guest, both day and evening were well fed. Every single guest I spoke to complimented us on the food choices!"
The Dress! Lauren's wedding dress, Matt's suit, and the groom's suit were all from The Wedding Company. Lauren, mum, and sister visited The Wedding Company when they had a sale "They were really helpful and I ended up booking an appointment to try some dresses on thinking I would book at a few different shops but I ended up finding my dress in my first fitting. Matt also found his suit there too. The staff were so nice and helpful"
Lauren's dress was a two-piece from Charlotte Balbier, Harper dress with a tempest top, and Blythe sash. "I wanted a boho style dress that would go with a pair of blue Doc Martens which were my wedding shoes!"
Lauren's Nan arranged the flowers including the bouquet all the flowers were purchased from St Mellion in Saltash Lauren's Aunty and Mum helped with buttonholes! A real family affair.
Jodie Hooper from Sanity salon in Plymouth styled the bridal hair and mother of the bride. Bridesmaids hair was styled by a close friend. Makeup for the bride and mother of the bride was by Rhiannon Armstrong from The Powder Room in Plympton and bridesmaids makeup was by a close friend Helen Wraight from Made up by Helen.
Their cake was made by Lauren's Aunty who made her parents wedding cake 32 years ago. A four-tier naked cake with each tier a different flavour, vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, and lemon.
Lauren and Matt booked The Sound after seeing them play at a friend's wedding a few years before. Their setlist was perfect for this couple playing the genre of music that they both love "They are great value for money and really professional"
Favourite part of our wedding? "All of it! But if I had to choose it would have been walking back down the aisle feeling relaxed and seeing all of our loved ones in one room and the live music in the evening with everyone having fun."
Tips for brides "Don't stress about the weather - we didn't get married outside like I imagined we would because it was raining but it didn't make a difference in the end. I didn't even notice the weather and there's no point stressing about it because it is out of everyone's control. Also take every second of the build-up and the wedding weekend in because it goes so fast!"
