A day to remember…

…except that I don’t remember it all that well…

I’m still being sent photos and thinking ‘I have absolutely no recollection of posing for this’ – and most of said photos were taken before we’d got to the reception. It’s all such a blur!

However the bits I do remember were great fun and it was amazing to see my vision come to life. Guests got stuck into the fresh bread, paté and artisan cheeses from the picnic hampers and helped themselves to the hog roast, dressed salmon and salads. It was a very laid-back affair, exactly what we were aiming for.

I vaguely remember the first dance. We attempted some choreographed silliness to The Smiths’ This Charming Man which mainly consisted of me flamenco dancing (in bare feet – my shoes killed me) around Gavin. I still can’t bring myself to watch the video.

Anyway, here are a few of the day’s snaps, in no particular order. I’ll post more soon.

Purple reign: my latest DIY wedding projects

Finally the overall look and feel of our wedding reception is starting to take shape, thanks to my latest purple purchases and ‘crafternoons’ of hard graft!

Here are some of my latest buys and makes:  

 Who needs mega-expensive real flowers when you can fake it for less and display your creative side? Plus this won’t wilt or die the next day!

  I love the purple gingham napkin and vintage luggage tag. Perfect for our picnic reception.

 

Beautiful fabric bunting. Set me back £40 for three 10meter rolls but they’ll last for years. 

 

Rustic buttonhole flowers for the groomsmen. 

  Rustic bouquets for the two big bridesmaids (the two little ones will be carrying baskets filled with confetti).
