the day

The ceremony and most of the day will be outdoors, so please bring sensible footwear and an umbrella if we are unfortunate!

If you have an instrument please bring it along and learn I'm A Man You Don't Meet Every Day by The Pogues. It would mean a lot to us to have a go at playing and singing this together at our ceremony.

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Sequins and tartan are a killer combo.

The Plan

1pm: arrive / small talk / nibbles / anticipation

2pm: Ceremony 

followed by big talk / fizz / games

4pm: Big Pan Food

Meat/Veggie/Vegan options all available


You can then expect some high quality speeches


Followed by music and low quality dancing until late



We would love you to join us in camping on the Friday and Saturday. You can either bring your own tent and camping stuff, or book a luxury bell tent from Bears and Butterflies. These will be put up ready for your arrival. There are showers and toilets for campers.

To book a bell tent, please email and put our names and the date of the wedding in the subject line. 3m will fit a couple and 5m will do four people or a family. The prices you see are for two nights.

We have arranged for a mobile cart to arrive on Saturday afternoon for guests to buy teas and coffees, as well as cocktails later in the evening. The cart will stay until Sunday morning so campers will be able to get their caffeine fixes and breakfast bits.

If camping is not your thing there are plenty of places to stay locally.

We don't have one. 

Having you there to celebrate with us on the day is fantastic and we are really grateful to you for putting aside the time and spending the cash to be with us!

If you were really hoping to give us something extra then we would really appreciate some money towards whatever our future holds. Please get in contact with us to find out how to do that.
