Wedding at Brickhouse Vineyard, Devon
Charley and Thomas's intimate summer wedding at Brickhouse Vineyard
The digital world brought Charley and Thomas together when they started following each other’s blogs as teenagers. “We had followed each other for a few years before I messaged Thomas for the first time. Fast forward a year and we had been speaking every day before going on our first date in August 2016,” reflects Charley.
After a “perfect” proposal at home, the couple set out to find their dream intimate venue – and they soon fell for the charms of Brickhouse Vineyard. “It was the first venue we visited and we fell in love straight away,” says Charley.
Their vision was brought to life beautifully by wedding stylist Nikki Sherriff of Knots & Kisses. “Nikki worked closely with our florist to make sure everything was cohesive and looked perfect on the day,” says Charley. “She also set up for us which was a massive weight off our shoulders.”
The venue was dressed with a dreamy blend of pale petals in glass vases, modern stationery and simple sprigs of rosemary atop rattan plates, while a ceremony arch bedecked with delicate petals and foliage framed the vows.
“The atmosphere was so lovely and everyone said how much they enjoyed themselves,” says Charley of her dream summer wedding. “Regardless of how difficult Covid restrictions made planning, we’re so happy with how things turned out.”
There’s just one thing the couple would change. “Have your ceremony earlier,” she advises, reflecting on their 2pm ceremony. “We said to each other so many times that time was going too quickly and wished we had more time to soak it all up.”
