What Made Our Day Unique
The start of ‘wedding week’ was chaotic, with a to-do list far longer than it should have been with only days to go, and horribly wet and windy weather dampening enthusiasm for our DIY-garden celebration (I must have said ‘a venue would have been so much easier’ hundreds of times!) Friends and family were travelling from around the world to join our special day, which only increased the pressure on Matthew and I to make it ‘perfect’. Fortunately, by the end of the week, the sun came out for a day that transpired to be more Torre-del-Mar than Toddington, Bedfordshire!
Different Bridesmaid DressesThis couple styled every detail themselves, from the marquee decor, the gin wedding favours and the mirrored table plan to the groomsmen attire and bridal party outfits. The different bridesmaid dresses in pastel tones complemented the bright florals in their flower crowns, all clutching a hoop bouquet - a great alternative to the traditional bouquets!
Inspiration & Styling
A relaxed, colourful summer garden party! Whilst we both come from big extended families, Matthew and I wanted each of our guests to feel that our day was an intimate expression of our love for one another, and for everyone to know how grateful we were for their unique contributions to making us ‘us’. We planned and styled every detail of the wedding ourselves, which helped make it a very personal day - from the moment our guests arrived at the church through to the afternoon of celebrations.
