Thurning Hall Wedding // Nic & Kirstie
Nic and Kirstie knew exactly what they wanted their wedding to be like. It had to reflect their personalities, their interests and their relationship. They opted for a Thurning Hall wedding as, like them, Thurning Hall is super cool and can be easily made into one’s own wedding vision. It’s not a blank canvas to work with – far from it. The historic Georgian house oozes character and is perfect for an intimate ceremony. Nic and Kirstie added their own picture frames and rock n roll details to make it feel even more like them.
The grounds are truly stunning. I LOVED the different walled gardens. There was a lovely area for an outdoor ceremony if wanted and loads of lovely spots for photos and mingling. On Nic and Kirstie’s day, it rained a little so we didn’t spend loads of time outdoors. With cover provided by Thurning Hall and later Nic and Kirstie’s tipi in the largest garden, it really didn’t matter. As a venue for a reception, a Thurning Hall wedding involves some DIY. Couples need to organise their own tipi/marquee, catering, etc. This is of course absolutely perfect if you like to be in control and create the wedding you want – just like Kirstie and Nic.
I hit it off with these guys right from the moment I met up with them for a coffee. With a shared interest in live music, we’ve since gone to see the awesome St Paul & The Broken Bones and shared a few beers together. They’ve both met Maple my new puppy (of Instagram fame) and I think Kirstie may have plans to steal her so I’m keeping an extra vigilant eye on them both 😉 They nearly always wear black, love Brewdog beers, Spartan races and live rock music. You’ll see elements of all of these in this post 🙂
Their band in the evening were a supergroup formed of The Epics and The Mixtapes. I’d highly recommend either band for any wedding. They’ll be playing at my own wedding this year too. Great musicians and great fun!
Kirstie didn’t want any getting-ready photos so this post begins not long before the start of the ceremony and ends late into the evening.
