As Event Managers, we have the capacity to look at a space and instantly visualise how fabulous it could be for events. Sharing this vision though isn’t easy. So when we come across the beautiful Ivybrook Farm as a brand new venue that in our minds was perfect, we just had to be able to share it with couples.
To do that we called in a group of talented suppliers, who immediately also saw our vision and voila, suddenly this vision becomes reality and what a beautiful one it is…….
Here are some of the highlights from this shoot captured by Deb Saunders Photography in November 2017. Please scroll to the bottom for full supplier credits and a little about each of the talented people involved in bringing this vision to life.
And because one set-up isn’t enough the team also created a second styled look on the day, showcasing an elegant coastal style.
