Rosie and Andy celebrated their wedding with a humanist celebration with all their loved ones under a tree at Kingdom in Penshurst, Kent. Rosie is a freelance copywriter and has provided me with some lovely words about their relaxed and informal wedding day, thus I don’t intend to write much here and will leave you with Rosie’s words about their day…
“Thank you so so much! We can’t stop looking at all of the photos. You’ve captured the day perfectly and we are so pleased. We’ve shared with our nearest and dearest and they all say how great they are… It was honestly the best day of our lives and we’re so happy you were a part of it. Now we can compliment our memories with your beautiful pictures.” – Rosie and Andy
“Andy and I are big nature lovers. There was no question that our big day had to reflect that as much as possible. It was also important that the space was relaxed and laid back as well as being a beautiful natural backdrop. I saw Kingdom on a wedding blog and we went to visit it that weekend. It was the first and only place we visited and we knew, even as soon as pulling up in the carpark, that it was the right space for us. The beautiful huge tree where we had our blessing, the amazing eco-lodge style clubhouse and the beautiful views across the Kent countryside. It just felt right.”
“The most important thing to us was that everyone had a good time. We chose to get married because we wanted to celebrate our love with our nearest and dearest, so we wanted to throw a really good party! And that meant good food (veggie of course!), plenty of booze and good music! I think we managed to achieve that! The blessing was also really important, we were really happy we found Jane, our Humanist Celebrant, as she created a really special ceremony that was unique to us.”
“I was really surprised at how much there was to organise! We’re both relatively relaxed and organised people, and had most things under control well in advance, but suddenly in the lead up to the big day, there’s a lot of people asking you a lot of things. It was pretty overwhelming! You just have to let go a bit and remember that it won’t ever be 100% exactly as you envisioned it, but the most important thing is each other and your love. That’s it.”
“I wouldn’t change pretty much any of it! It was the perfect day. Or perhaps I would have got a dress with a smaller train. It got in the way of my dancing!” – Rosie
