Our wedding was a family affair. Both from families with five plus children, and a large extended family it was never going to be small. The food, the relaxed atmosphere and the location all had to be ‘family style’.

The vision was for a fun-filled summer fiesta style wedding, taking inspiration from Spanish fiesta and South American flavours. We married in the garden under a huge Oak tree with a natural aisle. Home made pinata, flags, and garden swings were hung in the trees in the garden, along with garden games to keep everyone entertained while drinking Spanish inspired cocktails.

All the decor, flowers and set up were all do-it-yourself. Several days of preparations at Lacewood with a significant team was a project management task, that was pulled off with the help of amazing family and friends.
