Gate Street Barn is one of my favourite wedding venues. When I met with Liz and Rich they explained that they fell in love with Gate Street instantly and it’s easy to see why. It was the perfect place to host a wedding full to the brim of creativity and kindness.

Liz & Rich thought about everything. They chose their wedding date for a beautifully sentimental reason, which only highlights just how considerate and caring they are as a couple.

After having so much fun with Liz & Rich during their Newlands Corner engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be wonderful and wonderful it was!

As forecast the day started off a little rainy but the ceremony approached the sun shone brightly.

For yet more sentimental reason the theme was rabbits, birds and bright flowers. In every nook and cranny you could see little hits of the theme. Even the basket which held the rings was a handmade bird basket.

Oliver the very smartly dressed and well-behaved page boy, proudly showed off his basket which will contain the rings.

The soft vibrant colours of the flowers echoed Liz and Rich’s outgoing personalities.

Everyone helped to make this day as beautiful as it could be. Kasia, one of Liz’s talented bridesmaids did her makeup.

Liz’s beautiful dress was designed by Bijou Bridal and her lovely bridesmaid Sarah and Sarah’s mum made the flowers.

Clipped onto the flowers was a vintage broach that belonged to Liz’s grandmother.

Just like with the ceremony the theme shone through.

Welcome Mr & Mrs Jackson.

As I explored outside I could see spot more little birds hidden around.

Not only did Gwen make the bunting, but together with Liz, they made the yummy wedding cake. What a talented pair they are!

The smiles were as bright as the flowers during the wedding speeches.

Rich read out a very touching poem that he wrote for Liz, I have to admit I had a tear in my eye as her read it out loud.

There were cheers and tears.

As the evening sun shone I took Liz & Rich away to another section of Gate Street Barn for a few more photos.

Liz snuck away to give Rich a little surprise. Liz & Rich are keen dancers. In order to dance the night away to the fullest, Liz brought a secret wedding dress perfect for their beloved swing dancing. Before the wedding Liz & I made a second ‘secret’ wedding timeline, where we planned Liz’s outfit change and the big reveal to Rich!

They were both so happy!

The Daisy Foundation Woking, West Byfleet and Addlestone is such a fabulous company. I met Claire (the lovely who runs Daisy in Woking), she has such passion and knowledge. If you’re pregnant or just had your little one, I really recommend getting in touch with Claire for one her classes 😊xXx

The Daisy Foundation Woking, West Byfleet and Addlestone
You’re pregnant...now what?! Don’t worry, Daisy has you covered!

💜 *Daisy Birthing*
Birthing classes are weekly classes that can be booked on in blocks of 6 weeks. Suitable from 14 weeks pregnant, these 1.5hr classes combine yoga-based movement, antenatal education, breathing techniques and a guided relaxation.

💜 *Active Birth Workshop*
This 4 hour workshop is a great addition to Birthing for many, but also works well as a standalone option. Attend with your birth partner and learn the fundamentals of active birth, breathing techniques, massage and rebozo techniques, and leave feeling empowered - you birth partner will be fully prepped to have an active and key role during labour.

💜 *Daisy Parent*
These classes run over 6 weeks and provide you with all the info and techniques you will need to totally rock your labour, birth AND baby care! We spend 3 weeks learning about all things labour/birth, and the last 3 weeks learning everything you will need to care for your baby once they are here. Book the full 6 weeks, or just attend one of the two 3 week blocks.

💜 *Daisy Baby Tinies* COMING SOON
Suitable from around 6 weeks post-partum, this relaxed class gives you a calm environment in which to learn baby massage, do some gentle postnatal recovery and meet other new mums (and babies!)

So, what are you waiting for? Get booked on, so we can get started. It would be lovely to meet you, your partner, and your brand new little one!

PM me or email Claire-sandhu@thedaisyfoundation.com for more information.
