Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Sequins and tartan are a killer combo.
The Plan - Saturday 5th Sep
1pm: arrive / small talk / anticipation
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 midnight
You're welcome to arrive and pitch or find your tent from 16:30 on Friday.
The ceremony will be outdoors, so please bring sensible footwear and an umbrella in case 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.
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.

There is a large Waitrose in Crewkerne
which also has a coffee shop.
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 to be with us!
If you were hoping to give us something extra then we would really appreciate money towards whatever our future holds. We'll have envelopes to drop into our "Wishing Well" Well on the day to receive any gifts that you kindly give us.
Disclaimer: No BBQs or fire on the campsite. The event is being held on a working farm and you and your children's safety are your own responsibility.
