Well, this was a wedding with a difference! We were invited to join Leanne and Shaun on their farm for a wedding 'festival', lasting three days over the bank holiday in August this year. Guests could camp at the farm and were treated to a wonderful barbecue on the first night. It was a fantastic setting, surrounded by fields and with horses, sheep and farm dogs (and puppies) galore.
The second day was filled with outdoor activities like archery, shooting and axe-throwing, great for the competitive natured (not least, the bride and groom!) In the evening, everyone sat together around an enormous campfire and enjoyed delicious roast lamb cooked in a pit oven, and toasted marshmallows.
As night fell, the entertainment was provided by a cast of wonderfully talented guests. We were treated to bagpipe music, a mini production of River Dance and set from DJ Dave in the disco tent taking us through into the wee small hours.
