For Christmas my brother bought me a Emma Bridgewater factory experience. We have so much ‘stuff’ I love getting an experience or a chance to make memories and this was right up my street!
For my wedding I bought a pair of Manolo Blahnik white hangisi heels! I had always wanted some but never had the right time to justify the purchase. Marrying a farmer and knowing a lot of my future life would be spent in wellies I decided that my wedding day was the day!
Every year, all over the country, people get together for a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan cancer support. We are members of a local farmer club and in aid of the charity a coffee morning was thrown at a local farm. I don’t think we will be braking any stereotypes any time soon – as boy can farmers wives bake!
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.
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 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.
