DIY Lynn Gwynant Barn Wedding
A group of mountaineering friends gathered today for a wonderful rustic DIY Llyn Gwynant barn wedding in gloriously scenic Snowdonia
We love all different types of weddings and this one certainly was and so glad we responded to the Bark lead to get this and it truly was a DIY wedding
Phil and Helen brewed their own peculiar Ale and fermented their own (delicious) elder-flower champagne and apple wine.
They grew their own flowers for the decorations, dried the petals for the confetti and all the bouquets which Phil made – what a talented man!
There were trestle tables groaning under the weight of so much food – all vegetarian and prepared by friends and family – totally delicious
So lovely to see friends just chipping in with setting up and helping this to be the day just as Phil and Helen wished for.
No bridal preps we met Helen as she arrived by car to the venue – her bridesmaid so attentive and forever arranging out her gorgeously embroidered dress to it best.
A ceremony in the North Wales barn by Llyn Gwynant in scenic Snowdonia National Park where many of their friends were camping out in the adjacent campsite.
Plenty of time to explore the surrounding hills and lakeside for beautiful portraits before heading back for the feast laid out
Guest had a great time mingling by the barn having drinks and snacks and the kids had fun with the bubbles .. think Helen enjoyed that too
Oh we even had pics on their mountain portaledge where they intended to have their first night as a married couple befitting the theme of their mountain wedding.
Helen’s something blue was blue mountain twine around her ankle – love details like this
Indeed Phil had proposed to Helen in Yosemite and her ring had been hand crafted and engraved especially.
Starters on the table as Phil got proceedings underway by opening the big bottle of homegrown champagne inviting friends to open theirs at the same time such a lovely touch.
Homemade jars of jam adorned the tables as DIY favours for their friends
Other speeches followed in between courses and the day just rolled into the evening festivities of dancing and merrymaking
A real fun memorable day for all and great teamwork to put on such a wonderful event.
Thank you Phl and Helen for inviting us to capture and share your amazing DIY Barn wedding we so enjoyed it and wish you much happiness to come.
