Picking the right venue is always the most important element of any wedding day, and for all those animal lovers – and especially llama lovers – Briery Hill Farm perfectly combines an elegant outdoor wedding venue – with these very special animals.
Each llama has its very own name and personality, and can take part in your wedding day and wedding day photos! Isn’t this the best way to make your wedding unique?
The stunning country farm, which is family-owned, can host large weddings and ceremonies on their stunning lawns, with sweeping views of the Malvern Hills or down to their iridescent lake.
Your ceremony can take place in their stunning, recently erected, glass orangery, in and amongst their well kept green lawns, with the scent of English country roses.
Our Bride and Groom
Showcasing a stunning piece by Bowen Dryden for the ceremony, with a lace bodice and delicate accessories by Amore Headwear and shoes by Di Hassel, our bride added a modern twist to this traditional backdrop, proving a contemporary can fit in any location.
The delicate drop floral earrings and accessories by Amore Headwear perfectly matched the flowers surrounding our bride, Alex, in the garden.
In our evening wedding dress by Milla London, the lace shoes by Di Hassel were the perfect combination, completely mirroring and complementing the delicate cloud of white blossom of this gown.
With hair and makeup by the talented Elena, we were able to create the perfect look to match each element of the day. Elena, created a softer style for the ceremony, complementing the pastels of the wedding bouquet, with a stronger look to match the Milla evening dress.
Our groom, with a suit from Marc Darcy Suits and shoes by Loakes, was the perfect representation of a country gentleman. The brown hues complement the original stonework of the orangery.
The Plants and Flowers
In keeping with the garden backdrop, we brought the garden into the orangery for the wedding ceremony. Lining the stone wall with evergreen plants and trees, as well as pampas grass and moss, provided by the Fairview Gardener. By using potted plants in this way, we were able to ensure that the ceremony decor not only reflected the surrounding nature but also was another way to reduce the environmental footprint.
The bridal bouquet was an array of stunning pastel colours, handcrafted by Harebell and Bee. Shanna from Harebell and Bee specialises in British locally grown flowers, an important factor for any couple that is environmentally conscious; a trend that is consistently even more important for couples in today’s wedding industry.
Harebell and Bee are also known for their dried flowers, and Shanna expertly crafted two delicate dried flower balls. These bursts of dried flowers, which hung from iron shepherd’s crooks were flawless and the perfect way to create an impactful display for Wedding Breakfast.
The Wedding Breakfast & Wedding Cake
When in a stunning English country garden, there is no better way to celebrate your wedding than with the most quintessentially British meal, an afternoon tea. The Briery Hill team displayed a stunning area of homemade sandwiches and cakes, and each mouthful was a little taste of heaven.
To crown, this delectable feast was the centrepiece by Cake of the Day. This three-piece wonder continued with the countryside theme, with stunning flowers and leaves adding layers of colour and texture to the cake. The delicate flowers were exquisitely crafted, and there is no doubt this was a perfect cake!
Snow white linen and limewash chivari chairs were provided by Gloucester Event Hire.
A Hidden Secret
Just behind Briery Hill Farm, for the more adventurous couples, is a magical fern wood. Any couple looking for that extra special something for their wedding day photos will be delighted.
With the setting sun, the evening light in this space was expertly captured (along with all the photography on for this shoot) by the talented eye of Emma Jane from Emma Jane Photography.
We were able to end this shoot in the rays of the setting sun, framing what had been a perfect day.
