1940’s Camp Wedding
If you are looking for a Rustic wedding venue with a blank canvas, then the 1940’s Camp in Ramsey is the place to go.
Louise and Chris married at Thomas a Beckett church before travelling literally around the corner to the camp. I loved the Gin theme to the wedding decor. Well anyone who knows me knows that I love gin!
We spent a fun morning with the girls. Getting ready is always one of my favourite parts of the day.
Family is very important to these guys and the day was planned with such a relaxed vibe about it. All the kids loved playing with the soft play toys in the grounds.
I got to meet Harvey, their son and his Grandparents at the pre-wedding session. This was a great way of getting Harvey used to me.
These two are made for each other. Congratulations guys. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together x

Who asked who and how
Chris asked me on holiday in Bath. He wanted to ask me in the Spa, both at the rooftop pool and in the restaurant but I ruined his plans because I wouldn’t let him get his wallet from the locker. In the end, he got down on one knee in the bedroom of the lodge we were staying in and explained he’d been trying to do it all day, ha!
Wedding planning, good, bad and fabulous
Wedding planning is extremely stressful, there is so much to think about. We did a lot of bits ourselves which I actually like because it made it more special, we made all the wedding favours, created the decorations that would be used on the tables. All our suppliers were great and I feel very lucky we didn’t have a bad experience with any of them. We also had very supportive families who helped us out a lot and Kate did such an amazing job of setting up the venue, I feel very lucky to have such amazing people in our lives.
How was day through your eyes?
The day was fantastic, everything went the way we wanted it to.
What was your favourite part of the day
For me my favourite part of the day was walking out the church as a family of three, it’s a moment I will treasure forever.
Any tips you learnt along the way which may be useful for other brides
To try and have as much done as possible so you can enjoy the last few days before the wedding. I was still running around getting things together until the Thursday before which made it quite stressful and I didn’t have any time to relax beforehand. The biggest thing is just to remember why you’re doing it all, to become husband and wife and make that commitment to one and other because in the scheme of things nothing else really matters! Even with all the stress and worry, I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!
