Сhloe and Mitch both love going to festivals, so they took some inspiration from that for their summer wedding, they wanted everything to be simple, natural and suit the surroundings.
They nicknamed their wedding Camp Cubitt, with all their guests staying on-site with them for the whole weekend in farmhouse, shepherds hut and teepee accommodation. This gave them the freedom to spend plenty of time with their loved ones, even hosting a BBQ breakfast the morning after the wedding. Chloe and Mitch didn’t actually start with a color theme, but when she picked her blue Chantel Lauren gown, Chloe knew she wanted blue flowers to match, and so the loose blue color-scheme was born. Chloe’s mum, who walked her down the aisle, rocked a powder blue David Bowie inspired suit and her maid of honour wore a blue-toned maxi skirt and simple white top.
Their ceremony was held under the open barn in Elmley’s grounds, and dressed simply with hay bales and wildflower arches. After the ceremony, Chloe and Mitch headed over to the nature reserve for couples portraits, they rejoined their guests for their evening reception. As the couple are vegan, they decided to have everyone try it out for the day – they served a vegan BBQ for the wedding breakfast and Mexican buffet for the evening to go with their mariachi band.
The biggest chunk of their £30,000 budget was spent on their venue; еhey saved money by keeping decor really simple and spent time sourcing things online; they utilized Etsy and eBay a lot. The bride’s mom sourced over 20 pashminas and scarves for them to cover the haybales with. It looked amazing and the couple let people pick their favorite to take home. They also chose to have a sweet bar instead of traditional favors, which everyone loved and worked out a lot cheaper.
