The day I became a farmer’s wife- part 2

The reception was held back at the farm in one of the fields. We had an area set up for parking and camping and then mowed a walk way across the field to the tipi.


We had one large tipi, one small tipi and a catering tent off the back. We put a smoking area and had a portable toilet cabin round the back of the tipi to keep them out of sight. We also had a spare marquee set up just encase the heavens opened and we needed some extra shelter.

The day I became a farmer’s wife- part 1

On the 16th September- I officially became a farmer’s wife.

We were getting married in my local village before heading back to a farm field for a DIY rustic style wedding in a Tipi. We had organised everything ourselves and tried to do as much as possible to save some money as well as making everything more personal to us.  The farm had had a tidy up and Tom has put more effort into mowing the field than I have ever seen him put into anything else. With everything ready to go the Tipi went up on the Wednesday, giving us 3 days to decorate away. Myself, Tom and lots of family and friends help to decorate the Tipi and get everything ready. It was hard work but I really enjoyed adding those little touches that were personal to use.

Kelmarsh Show

Kelmarsh show is the first annual event of the season for my family- every year, come rain or shine, we all attend Kelmarsh on the Sunday- this year it happened to be Easter Sunday.

All except Tom that is, unless it is an agricultural show with some form of tractor or livestock , he will do everything in his power not to attend.

The journey begins

In 2016 I said yes

In 2017 I will say I DO

I can’t wait to be a farmers wife and have decided to blog my adventures from here on out.

We met over three years ago in the local pub and the time has flown by. We currently live in an old fashion cottage with our two house dogs, two pet ducks and a guinea pig.  My weekends are spent on long countryside walks, looking after animals- especially the woofers- and sharing food with my family.

And so the journey begins…
