So said Albert Camus and so it was for our last big wedding of the year in October.
It was a special one for us becuse it was held at Colstoun House, home to Pyrus HQ. It seemed fitting that at the end of our wedding season we were harvesting all the flowers from our cutting garden, spending days foraging the surrounding fields and woodland and then carting vans full of flowers all of a few hundred metres to the main house and marquee.
The sense of place was really wonderful and working in a venue so familiar to us (the house is so homely you can kick off your shoes) gave this wedding a particularly personal, intimate feel. Similarly, our working relationship with the Colstoun team means that when potential disaster struck and we realised that our mallet wasn't heavy enough to drive the hazel lantern poles into the ground, everyone ran to our aid. Soon there were five of us plus dogs using all manner of implements (probably antique) from the house, laughing and taking photos of our misadventures. This is the other side of events that you don't hear about and we won't be sharing those particular images here, definitely one for the personal album.... thankfully we got the poles in eventually and no one was the wiser! Phew.
We worked alongside the amazing Kitchener photography for the first time on this wedding and they have been kind enough to let us use some of their beautiful images for this post which captured the day SO brilliantly.
And lastly of course, to Mr and Mrs Leggat- all our flowery congratulations in the world! We hope you enjoy your long awaited honeymoon travels when they finally come.
