This summer is a certainly a busy one for me. Not only am I lucky enough to be conducted gorgeous weddings across the country most weekends, I’ve also just got married myself! Add in the fact that my 2020 diary is starting to fill up too and it’s fair to say summer 2019 is keeping me on my toes…

Anyway, I’m going to share some of the brilliant weddings that I’ve been part of over recent months and I’m going to start with one close to home, held at the hidden gem that is Hillfields Farm. This amazing venue was new to me and when Helen and Carl got in touch to talk about their wedding plans, I couldn’t wait to see it for myself.

And it’s brilliant - gorgeous gardens, oodles of fab indoor space, loads of flexibility and DONKEYS! Oh yes indeed, donkeys. Could there be a better welcome to a countryside venue?

Helen and Carl’s ceremony was very special indeed. Helen is a florist with her own shop not too far from Hillfields and Carl is a part-time wedding videographer so there was a serious amount of wedding knowledge floating around. As you can imagine, the flowers on the day were insanely beautiful and I can’t wait to see the film of the day either.


The ceremony itself was full of things that represented Helen and Carl - great musical choices, personal and heartfelt readings, some laughs and a few emotional moments. The sun shone, the guests were fantastic and the day was expertly managed by Claire Ambler. I loved every minute of it and I’m super excited as I’ve just been booked for another wedding at Hillfields next year. Hurrah!

Thank you so so much for the amazing ceremony - I’m so surprised I didn’t cry! Who would have thought it! Thank you again, it really was the perfect ceremony.
