Julia and Dean were a couple who were destined to be together. They lived in the same village for years, and knew a lot of the same people, what with Dean being the only plumber in the village, but never met until Julia built an extension on her house. Dean being the only plumber in the village was the obvious recommendation for the job. He’s also pretty good at plumbing which is rather handy for a plumber. Like most tradesmen many cups of tea and chat later it seems they discovered they had rather a lot in common, and possibly spurred by a future of Julia’s incredible flapjacks, Dean asked Julia out on a date. And on Christmas Eve 2011 they had their first date..
Exactly four years later on Christmas Eve 2015 as Julia and Dean were waiting for Father Christmas to visit Julia’s son, Jack, as the clock struck midnight Dean proposed to Julia. She of course said yes, and soon wedding plans were underway for the perfect, relaxed, romantic, garden wedding.
Julia and Dean chose Burrow Farm Gardens because it so perfectly fit their vision for a relaxed, laid back wedding, that would feel romantic and intimate with a garden feel to it. They loved the beautiful gardens and the ethereal quality that that they could have with an outdoor ceremony in the glade. With only a maximum of 5 wedding a year they loved that they were able to put their stamp on their wedding with a traditional marquee with long rustic tables. hay bales outside to sit on, lawn games to play. They choose a local caterer, Crinhaye Catering to provide good quality locally produced home cooked food.
On the day Julia wore the most beautiful dress by Kate Walker as she said ‘I do’ to Dean, looking an absolute picture of perfection with her hair done by Nick from Hair Sanctuary, and the most beautiful fragrant bouquet (and flowers) by In Bloom Devon. It really was the most romantic, day full of laughter and fun and everything envisaged by Julia and Dean. The sun was certainly shining on these two that day.
