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.

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.
