Real rustic charm in a decorated barn.
Ashley and Dan got married at Harty Church before continuing on to the barn at The Ferry House Inn, Kent.
We asked Ashley and Dan to share details of their day with us:
Where did you find Idyllic Days?
We found them at the Ferry House Inn wedding open day. I was immediately drawn to the example styling they had on show. We arranged to meet Sophie at the Idyllic Days barn studio. We had ideas about the style we wanted to go for beforehand and we knew we definitely didn’t want a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our styling. The meeting was invaluable in helping us bring our ideas to life, by using props and styling a table. Sophie took the time to really understand our personal taste, and in turn provided us with unique tailor made room styling for our special day.
I can honestly say that working with Idyllic Days was a pleasure from
start to finish.
To say that the room styling exceeded our expectations is an understatement. When we saw the barn for the first time at the reception, it truly brought tears to my eyes, I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful it looked and more than that….how it was such a true reflection of us and what we wanted for our special day. The guests were so impressed too, and we received so many comments on how gorgeous the room was. We will most definately be recommending Idyllic Days for many years to come.
Most memorable moment
I can’t honestly say I have a most memorable part, but I can say that I genuinely loved every moment of our wedding day from start to finish! From the ceremony right through to the final song played on the dance floor, it just exceeded my every expectation. And I realise that may sound a bit cliche but it is true.
Advice to future Brides…
Use suppliers you feel comfortable with and that you feel you connect with as I believe this goes such a long way in creating the backdrop for your wedding day that you really want. Be organised and give yourself plenty of time to plan, enjoy panning it, and when the day arrives just enjoy every moment as it goes by so quickly. Oh and have it filmed so when it’s all over you can relive it all over again!
