Saturday 30 August - Bellows Mill

Louise and Craig

Louise and Craig wanted a really relaxed, chilled out wedding - almost with a country fete feel. So they held their celebrations at Bellows Mill near Dunstable as it gave them countryside, outdoor space for plenty of drinks and games. Louise got ready in the Kingfisher room and did her own hair, makeup and even made the bouquets.

Complementing the outdoor theme, the colourscheme was a mint green and the bride and groom had ensured lots of little touches such as wedding pin badges and signage around the venue.

Drinking, chatting and playing games was the main focus of the day. This included the usual croquet and jenga, but also sack racing and guessing the number of sweets in the jar. Hay bales with fleece blankets provided rustic seating with firepits lit later in the day.

There's certainly no shortage of space (or ducks) at Bellows Mill and a walk around the lake takes around 10 minutes... enough exercise to build up an appetite for the wedding breakfast.

The barn was transformed for the wedding breakfast with tables on both levels, jam jars filled with flowers and the wedding cake made up from 3 different cheesecake options for dessert!

As if all that food wasn't enough, evening brought marshmallows for toasting over the fires and the lake floodlit with green lights!
