Chip and Rachael’s Wedding – Old Oak Farm, Curry Rivel, Somerset – Saturday 4th July 2015

This was our first wedding at Old Oak Farm in Curry Rivel, Somerset and it was a lovely one to start with! The wedding venue owner Rebecca Jane Old Oak Farm OOF2decorated the marquee to perfection! There were artificial grass table runners, apple trees hanging overhead and the most stunning home-grown flowers in wooden boxes on tables.

It was a nice and relaxed afternoon, with guests enjoying drinks whilst playing the various lawn games on offer. Chip and Rachael wanted a low-key informal meal, to suit their style and everyone was definitely pleased with their choice: a BBQ! Who doesn’t love a BBQ?! Guests were able to watch as their food was cooked fresh out in the open, getting hungrier each minute by the tempting smells filling the air!
