Two Day Village Hall Wedding with DIY Decor and Bride in Tea Length Wedding Dress

Day one was an intimate affair at Fort Henry with only immediate family and friends, plus the couples adorable dog Alfie, and day two was party day in a local village hall, prepped and preened by family and friends with lots of DIY decor and details. The afternoon kicked off with Gin cocktails, craft beers, fish and chips and ice cream cones, and culminated with a ceilidh band. Capturing all the laid back vibes and fun were photographer friends The George’s.

My heart always soars when I spy a London wedding, especially when I hear their budget was only £5000! Gorgeous Australian bride and groom, Lara and Josh, certainly made the most of North London’s offerings with an intimate ceremony at Islington Town Hall, followed by a foliage-filled, champagne-fuelled reception at the uber cool Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings. Photographed by Olivia & Dan – members of our handpicked wedding supplier directory The List – their big day is a picture-perfect story of love, laughter and happily ever after, not to mention a beautiful beaded Needle & Thread dress that looks like it was made just for Lara.

Goldie & Rick

The emotion of this city wedding really shines through all the pictures captured by David Jenkins Photography. Everybody is full of smiles and having a good time, non more so than our gorgeous bride and groom Goldie & Rick.

Rick’s face literally says it all the moment Goldie enters The Asylum ceremony in her breathtaking lace Inbal Dror gown, there is no denying how absolutely jaw dropping-ly beautiful she looks, plus her face equally lights up as they say their vows at the iconic and atmospheric altar filled with church candles.

Culminating in a relaxed pub reception at The Londesborough with a fabulous pork pie tower wedding cake, this wedding will have you beaming from ear to ear.

Esha & Thom

Please get yourselves a hot cuppa and settle down somewhere comfortable for this one, as it’s such a gorgeous, heartfelt wedding day that you’ll really want to savour it. Esha and Thom’s write up left me beaming from ear to ear, it truly is one of the loveliest reports from a couple I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. The pair’s village hall wedding was all about doing things their way and it’s just a joy to behold. I’m not going to give away too many spoilers, but make sure you look out for Esha’s pitstop at her Grandma’s house before the ceremony, Thom’s wild entrance and the couple’s clever ways of making their ceremony completely unique.

I don’t think there could be a more suitable person to have captured it either, Alline from Beatrici Photography and Esha and Thom go together like gin and tonic. It’s such a gorgeous day everyone, enjoy!

Abby & Olly

For me Abby and Olly’s whole wedding is perfect. I couldn’t love their approach to their big day anymore – the couple funded their wedding themselves and found lots of clever ways to make sure that staying in line with their budget, while still putting on a stylish and fun wedding day. And Abby still got to wear two dresses and two pairs of shoes…I think she should start a new career as a bargain hunter for brides 😉

Saving money elsewhere meant that Abby & Olly could have the wonderful Jon at S6 Photography and Laura & Alan This Modern Revelry film their big day. And OMG I’m SO glad they did. The whole party has been captured beautifully and the film just brings the whole day to life. Be prepared to have a little cry and a little boogie all in the space of a few minutes…
