Hi! I’m Jodie.
Hirer of Props. Styler of Venues. Mother of Cats.
My job is to help you create the wedding of your dreams without it costing the earth.
It all started in 2016…
After 18 years of teaching, I reached a crossroads in my career and decided to walk away from the classroom for good. Being creative makes me happy. Endless amounts of paperwork and tick boxes do not. I sort of fell into weddings after I started making favours. I had spent 3 years running a performing arts festival at a local venue so I had events experience and contacts and so the decor and styling side grew from there.
The problem was I didn’t feel as if I fitted in. Something was missing. Lycra chair covers and chiffon sashes, whilst pretty, didn’t bring me joy. I loved being part of a couple’s special day and sharing in their happiness, but I didn’t feel like I was being true to myself. So I took some time to reflect on what it was that was important to me and Wild Meadow Weddings was born. I was influenced by our move to the country, watching the seasons unfold and the slower pace of life. I’d begun experimenting with natural dyes and using the plants in our garden and around the village to create them.
