Lucy and Ben’s summer wedding at The Old Kent Barn was elegant and fun, with their family taking centre stage. Children were kept well amused with various lawn games and there was a secret fish theme throughout, in aid of ben’s passion for fishing. This gorgeous barn wedding in the middle of Kent was just stunning. Check it out below.
First names: Lucy & Ben
Ages: 24 & 25
Wedding date: Friday 12th July
Venue: The Old Kent Barn
How did you guys meet, tell me all?
We met at a bus stop in 2007 and got the same bus to school nearly every day for a few years but only ever acknowledged each other a handful of times. ‘Officially’ started talking at a house party, but nothing come of that. Years past & in 2011 Ben turned up at my front door waiting for my brother (not knowing I was the sister), we finally started talking & the rest is history!
How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
We were all on a family trip to London at the beginning of November, I was cold, bored & desperate to go home but Ben had other plans. After having a full blown argument & me being in a strop, he managed to drag me up on the London Eye. I sat there with a face on the whole way up to the top and reluctantly stood up for a picture, turned round and he was down on one knee (all deliberately caught on camera).
What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
We always loved the idea of a barn style wedding, I found the venue on Instagram years ago and when it actually came to planning the wedding it was the first venue we looked at. It ticked every box so we confirmed the booking on our first viewing.
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
A secret FISH theme as that is one of Ben’s obsessions!
What is your first song and why?
Boyce Avenue, Love me like you do. Heard it & loved it!
What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?
Listen to advice but don’t always take it on board, remember it’s YOUR day and do it exactly how YOU want it. And don’t wait to book preferred suppliers, if their good – they’ll be booked up quickly!
