Real Wedding: Amy & Andzik at their family home
"England met Latvia in Amy & Andzik's relaxed home wedding celebrations. Bold and vivacious tones with bohemian vibes in the glorious sunshine mixed with the coolest little family ever made for a fun filled, vodka infused event. Secretly married a few months ago Amy & Andzik decided they wanted a relaxed party with family and close friends to celebrate their love at the very first place they met- Amy's parents farm.
Coming from a family of wedding and event planning, bride Amy was insistent with how the day should run and how everyone should feel included. Latvian traditions such as every guest having the option to make a toast, and lots of vodka shots alongside modern wedding etiquette of the bride making a speech, vegan food being catered for and even having the family pets included made for a day of smiles and laughter from everyone.
A love for nature and having a relaxed atmosphere meant that flowers made up the majority of the decoration. Clashing bright colours were chosen as were seasonal blooms such as peonies and stocks. Foliage was foraged from Amy's parents farm and contained everything from ivy, apple and willow to achieve a full and textured look. Sprigs of Rosemary for the men and lavender for the ladies adorned the place settings creating the dreamiest of scents inside the tipi.
Guests sat underneath a beautiful hoop decorated with an abundance of foliage and popping with vibrant blooms. Glancing up while it gently twirled and twinkled in a canopy above they were treated to delicious dishes created by Vaughan's Kitchen. The whole day was captured beautifully by Stephanie Dreams photography who did an amazing job of going unnoticed while she shot the important conversations, embraces and antics. Homemade pom poms added more colour to the bohemian decor and signs painted on rustic crates directed the guests seamlessly through the day to the early hours of the morning where guests sat on hay bales around fire pits cooking marshmallows while making toasts in both English and Latvian."
