gareth + bex – epic forest wedding – underneath the oaks

Gareth + Bex  |  Epic Forest Wedding  |  Underneath the Oaks


Landscape Architects are dangerous.  Be forewarned.  Marrying them is not what it seems!

You see, Gareth and Bex couldn’t quite find the perfect place to marry.  Nothing seemed to fit.  But with Gareth being a very handy landscaper the words “can’t find” just gets replaced with “looks like I’ll build it”.

So, queue awesome unused forest out the back of Woodlands Estate.   A massive clean up effort.   Planting a bed of grass. Irrigating that grass.  Mowing that grass.  Many many working bees. Making and hanging a romantic swing. Building a fairy light tent from scratch.  Mowing that grass one last time and bingo, we have a brand new wedding venue!!

Now that’s why Landscape Architects are dangerous … but totally worth marring!!

Below is their Feature Film which captures that story above and all the emotions that their wedding day brought. … and Gareth, just think about killing fish and you’ll be fine! 😉
