Jo and Jac's
Country Style Wedding

When you think of a country style wedding, you've got to have romantic flowers, a traditional barn and of course, co-ordinated donkeys. Yes, I did say donkeys.

They were a really cute touch for the country wedding of Jo and Jac in West Sussex.

Jo and Jac's country style wedding was at Grittenham Barn in West Sussex. They were looking for a country setting, typically English and with a bit of a garden theme. Although the setting was beautiful, they couldn't escape the threat of rain on an English summer's day, although, I personally think it added to the shots taken by Monica as there's that lovely dramatic grey light.

Jo's wedding dress was by Jesus Peiro from White Mischief in Henfield, West Sussex. Jo proclaims that she's not really a dress kinda gal, so opted for something more comfortable, simple and elegant, rather than heavily embellished or layered. Jac and the boys opted for simple morning suits.

All images have been very kindly shared with us by Monica from 2MWeddings.

They used soft, romantic flowers in lilacs, creams, pinks and blues throughout the venue, bouquets and of course on the donkeys' head collars. The flowers were created by Grittenham Barn as well.

The decor was kept simple but they suspended flower balls from the ceiling and flower garlands intertwined with fairy lights along the beams. Paul, from SP Projects added special lighting in and around the venue.

Jo did the stationery and all the paper goods herself, including the table numbers, orders of service and invitations. And don't they look fine! For her guests favours, they bought a selection of sweets for on the tables and later in the evening had a photobooth where they sent their guests personal photos after the event.

They had a superb feast throughout the day, all courtesy of Carrie Pegley of Barn Kitchen Catering. Their menu was carefully created to match their English country style wedding theme. They had canap├ęs to start, followed by a platter of pork loin; monkfish, salmon and prawn skewers coupled with vegetable frittata and mixed salads. This was sweetened up with chocolate torte, profiteroles and meringues with cream and berries for dessert. Sounds delicious and very summery.

Later in the evening Jo and Jac's guests were entertained by The Motorways who covered everything from 'Build Me up Buttercup' to 'Sex on Fire'.

So what made Jo's country style wedding different and modern? Jo's response was ' I think every wedding is different. Ours felt unique to us because we were surrounded by all our very closest friends and family. Neither of us are religious so having a civil ceremony meant that we could make everything extra personal. We chose readings that really talked about how we feel about each other and what our marriage means to us. It also enabled us to have a little fun with them.'.

Thanks to Jo and Jac for sharing their day and thanks again to Monica from 2MWeddings.
