Enduring Love….part 2

I have to say I don’t think I ever seen any florals quite as striking as used at the wedding of Sarah and Shaun, seriously AMAZING brights.

Pair that with a home spun bridal gown, the prettiest maids and spectacular photography by Binky Nixon and what do you get?

A Rock My Wedding type W-day that’s what πŸ™‚

A South African Flavour

We wanted to incorporate flowers from South Africa so we had lots of bright blooms which contrasted with the black bridesmaid dresses. Our florist was a friend, who was just excellent and we spent time coming up with the colour scheme. . So many people commented on the flowers and they looked fantastic on the day.

The flowers in the church were arranged by the ladies from the local WI (I was brought up in the village and my parents are still residents there) the large arrangement that you saw as you walked in included strelitzia and protea, the national flower of South Africa.

An Eye For Detail

Our photographer was Binky Nixon, she had photographed a friends wedding and I not only loved her pictures but really liked the way she went about taking photos, she is so friendly and approachable on such a personal day she just fitted in perfectly and has such a great eye for detail we are so pleased with the photos – nothing too formal but some great pictures of all our family and friends that really capture the mood of the day.

Friendship Baking

We had Individual cup cakes in a range of different colours in black cases instead of a traditional cake – made by a family friend.

Pearls Of Wisdom

Use the internet!! We found so much there – the name tags on the tables were luggage tags that we got from www.notonthehighstreet.com we also managed to track down a vintage morris minor as our wedding car.

Delegate! People were so willing to help – bridesmaids, friends etc we really had fun with some of the preparations. I gave all the girls little personal presents and then a pashmina each in one of the colours with a thank you message stitched onto it.

Anyone else fancy running around in some hay bale type fields with your boy after that?

I so do.

With thanks to Sarah, Shaun and Binky Nixon for sharing this striking soiree with Rock My Wedding.

Big Bright Love
