Trevor and Paula's Rustic Barn Wedding at Mount DruidMonday, December 14, 2015
Paula always dreamed of a rustic barn wedding and fell in love with Mount Druid when Trevor brought her there for a romantic weekend. Little did she know she was staying at the venue where she would get engaged and later marry. Paula explains how the proposal went....."We had a little BBQ and went for a walk around the grounds, we came across a tin barn and Trevor brought me in, it was little chapel. He joked “will we check this place out?” I couldn't contain my excitement when I saw it, it was just perfect. I sat down at the top of the aisle and said "well if you were to ever ask me this is the venue of my dreams…” with that I turned around and there he was down on one knee with a token ring and said "why do you think I brought you here, this is where we’re getting married..." and popped the question! I was speechless, when we got back to our yurt there was champagne waiting for us. We sat by the campfire in our own little world for the night. The next day we booked the wedding and then I was whisked off to Dubai for my beautiful ring."
"Our wedding represented both of our personalities perfectly. We always wanted a very relaxed feel to the day and the minute we found Mount Druid we knew that they could offer this. It was DIY wedding at the forefront and we made sure we involved as many friends and family to make it as personal as we could. We made sure everyone was well fed and entertained throughout the day with an abundance of amazing musicians (all close friends) and beautiful music. There wasn’t a dull moment."
Paula's advice for future brides:
When you get engaged make a note to yourself of the things that are most important to you at that moment in time. Don’t let yourself get wrapped up in all the hype and fuss that goes along with weddings and if you find yourself getting stressed over something, just look back at the note you wrote to yourself and you will soon be grounded again. At the end of the day the most important element of all this is the fact that you’re marrying the love of your life and your best friend and nothing else matters. And just enjoy the whole process, you don’t want to have any regrets afterwards, it’s the most exciting and fun time of your lives together so far.
