Christina and Henry's Chilled Festival-Style Wedding in Dorset

Christina & Henry // Dorset

Christina and Henry’s wedding was a delightful blend of tradition and relaxed festival vibes. From the charming church ceremony to the vibrant reception at their family farm, this couple created a truly memorable celebration that perfectly embodied their free-spirited personalities.

Preparations began at the farm and everyone was relaxed and excited, the girls were busy with Christina’s stunning Sassi Holford ivory wedding dress, named Emily, was a blush gown with an elegant off-the-shoulder neckline and silk gazar material, and it created a look that was both romantic and enchanting. Henry looked dapper in his tails, yellow waistcoat, and elephant tie topped it all off!

Christina and Henry chose to start their journey as a married couple with a traditional ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Compton Pauncefoot . The atmosphere was filled with anticipation and excitement as friends and family gathered to witness their vows and exchange of rings. As they emerged from the church, the newlyweds were greeted with a shower of confetti, and then whisked away to the reception in a classic open-top Morris Minor in all its vintage glory.

Arriving at their family farm, Christina and Henry’s guests were transported into a world of vibrant colours and exotic charm. An awe-inspiring Moroccan marquee by The Fantastical Ten Co awaited them, adorned with rich fabrics, twinkling lights, and intricate patterns. It created a magical space where guests could relax, mingle, and soak up the festival atmosphere. Adjacent to the marquee, a shisha tent provided a unique and indulgent experience for guests. With plumes of aromatic smoke and cozy seating arrangements, it became a gathering spot for conversations and laughter.

A wedding feast to remember awaited the guests at Christina and Henry’s reception. Home Table, renowned for their skill in fire pit feasts and asado cooking, provided a sumptuous spread from sizzling grilled meats to vibrant vegetarian options that delighted the taste buds of everyone present. Boo to a Goose made a delightful macaroon wedding cake tower that was as delicious as it looked!

No festival-style wedding is complete without the beauty of nature. Superplants and master florist Amy Shakeshaft worked their magic, adorning the venue with lush greenery and stunning floral arrangements. The vibrant blooms intertwined with cascading foliage created an enchanting atmosphere, breathing life and colour into the celebration.

As the sun began to set and the stars emerged, it was time for guests to let their hair down! The Supershakers, an energetic and talented band, took the stage and brought the dance floor to life. With their infectious tunes and electrifying performances, they ensured that the party was an absolute blast.

So cheers to Christina and Henry, it was a real treat to be part of such a wonderful celebration of love!
