Go Wild with Cowshed Creations and make Stone Barn magical

If we called her the best photographer in the universe we would still not be doing her justice. From initial booking to receipt of the final album, she excelled with communication, artistic style and creativity. She just has ‘the eye’ for a good picture. Sheryl captured moments in our wedding no one else would have even noticed and the final collection is something we will treasure forever. Don’t hesitate to book her- you won’t regret it.

When we spoke to Sheryl about the style of our wedding, and that we wanted to personalise as much as possible, she immediately recommended a local Wood Craft and Pyrography company called Cowshed Creations.

Sheryl had recently commissioned them to do a memorial art piece for her fathers birthday. Cowshed Creations designed and pyrographed (wood burning) a marvellous piece of art from the reference photo that Sheryl had supplied. They also added in some personal words from a poem that Sheryl’s Dad, Nick had penned. Both Nick and Sheryl spoke very highly of the way Cowshed had not only burned the details into the gorgeous wood, but also used the wood grain and natural lines to work with the fur lines in Rough Collie Sam.


After scrolling through their instagram and Etsy page I knew I wanted to talk to them about helping style our wedding day.

Our theme was to be a rustic woodland with browns and greys. We hired them to craft and pyrography a multi-tiered cupcake stand, a bespoke cake stand with our names and wedding date, a Donut wall, and a personalised teeny tiny log for each wedding guest among many many other delightful objects.

We also wanted the barn to be full of greenery and wild flowers. Beth and her team absolutely exceeded our (GO)WILD-est dreams with the flowers for our wedding.  From favours to button holes to bouquets to a breath taking floral chandelier ,  the quality of her work was second to none.  As a bride who had quite specific ideas about the aesthetics and ambience to the wedding, Beth certainly lived up to her reputation and dressed the venue to perfection.  We’ve had countless compliments on the stunning flowers, with some guests even saying the bridal bouquet was outstandingly unique and the men’s button holes were the best they’d ever seen.  To anyone reading this considering asking Beth to be your wedding florist, don’t even hesitate…book her immediately before she gets snapped up by someone else- you won’t be disappointed!
