Rebecca and Will decided that saving for a house was far more important than splurging on a wedding. So they set a budget and stuck to it. This meant lots of crafting, bargain hunting and clever tricks to make things look pretty.
Don’t worry – Rebecca will tell you all about her genius thrifty ways so you too can create a beautiful wedding on a small budget.
The cute couple married at Rebecca’s family church where her Granddad planted a tree when he was a boy. What a lovely way to honour past generations.
I also love the idea of including recipe cards as RSVPs with your invitations and asking your guests to write down their favourite recipes. Imagine all of the delights you’d end up making that you would never have thought of before!
You may remember this gorgeous pair from their rather special engagement shoot. If you missed it, please go and have a read – their story is such a lovely one & Emma’s words about her love for Mark are so heartfelt and moving.
‘We were so entwined that I knew I’d found my forever.’ I’m sure that’s a feeling which will resonate with all of you.
So it really is lovely to be able to share their wedding too…and believe me when I say Emma & Mark’s wedding is beautiful.
The flowers are out of this world. The Bridesmaids are sporting the most magnificent floral crowns I’ve ever seen and Emma’s bouquet is divine – oversized and full of beautiful roses and foliage. An excellent job done by Angel Like Flowers.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin…
Shooting a wedding on film ALWAYS creates a beautiful, dream-like quality to the images. Weddings shot on film by Peachey Photography? Well they are EXTRA special.
Dickie is Scottish and works in advertising. Annie wore a 50s style gown. The couple married at Annie’s parents house in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. So naturally, the theme was Scotland meets Mad Men meets English Country Fete. It worked a treat too.
Annie’s parents genuinely put their hearts and souls into preparing the garden for their daughters wedding – they had the garden landscaped, grew flowers from seed and even built the summerhouse where the ceremony was held! They did an excellent job, I’m sure you’ll agree.
And if you’ve just come along for a gander at a man in a kilt – you’re in for a treat. Dickie is sporting some very fetching Douglas tartan.
We’re starting the week with a wedding EXTRAVAGANZA. Seriously – I’ve never seen anything like it.
Yes, the gorgeous wedding elements are there…Alexis has a swirly to-die-for Jenny Packham gown, a dreamy bouquet filled with pink roses and green foliage, and there’s the obligatory London wedding transport – a big red wedding bus.
But that wasn’t enough for theatrical pair Alexis & Nathan, OH NO.
They’ve taken weddings to a whole new level.
There are also magician acts, live bands, sparklers, performance artists, hula hoops AND a flash mob first dance. You have to see it to believe it. But it looks like SUCH FUN.
Alexis & Nathan – all I can say is that you guys really know how to put on a show.
Kirsty and Tom’s village hall wedding is absolutely brimming with gorgeous vintage and handmade details, and there’s not a scrap of bunting in sight.
I’m particularly loving the table plan, which was created with an old door and some glass paint.
The flowers in soft pastel tones are also exquisite – the lovely couple are lucky enough to have a whizz florist as a friend.
These colours were reflected in the outfits for the wedding party, with the Bridesmaids looking fresh and pretty in dresses from the high street, and the boys totally nailing their self-proclaimed ‘English Country Gangster’ look.
The whole wedding was a proper family affair too, with Kirsty’s Mum and Dad helping to either grow, collect or make most of the decor.
