This wedding is so happy. I mean great big smiles all day long from everyone, it’s just infectious. I am thinking that the geeky references were a helping hand as were the live band and home made details.
WWW readers Leila and Daniel tied the knot on Friday 22 August 2015 at Oxford Town Hall and they held their reception at Wytham Village Hall. With a budget of £10 000 much of their day was a DIY effort, from the pretty blooms to the chic cake and superhero stationery. I am just loving the paper buttonholes donned by the gents, the blue lace bridesmaid dresses and the vintage hankies were a lovely touch too.
How beautiful did Leila look? She wore the elegant Jessica by Sassi Holford with a sweet jacket and cathedral length veil. WOW.
It those first tentative steps of wedding planning you don’t quite know where to start. It’s all excitement, dates and pinning to your hearts content. But I think one of the best first steps is to decide on your wedding party… then they can help you in all things wedding.
Once you have chosen your faves to stand by your side on the big day, why not ask them in utter style? That’s where the brilliant norma&dorothy come in. They have the cutest collection of rustic wedding stationery including “Will you be my…” cards. With designs totally on trend and available for bridesmaids, maid of honours, flower girls, groomsmen, ushers, page boys and best men there is a card to suit everyone. Plus they can be personalised to make them extra special.
The attention to detail is second to none. Sweet embellishments, quality card stock and personal touches.
This quintessentially English wedding is sure to give you a warm fuzzy feeling today and oodles of gorgeous summer wedding ideas to boot.
WWW readers Marianne and David decided to get hitched on the 20th June 2015 in the pretty Gloucestershire countryside. They steered away from a vintage chintz feel to their marquee wedding opting for trestle tables and festoon lights which gave a rustic chic feel. The marquee looked spectacular draped in foliage with crates filled to the brim with flowers and colour pop gingham table cloths. They wanted a relaxed atmosphere and the scrumptious food was served on the tables along side Victoria sponge cakes and ice cream for dessert. Yum.
Marianne looked utterly stunning in her beautiful Katya Katya Shehurina gown with vintage gold peep toes, while the gents donned tweed kilts. It sounds like a fun time was had by all.
Being an Etsy affiliate I had an email pop up asking me to take part in their Christmas gift guide challenge. Not one to turn down an excuse to do a spot of window shopping I thought I’d join in today.
Fingers crossed my picks for newly-weds will help you a little with your festive shop. If you know a super loved up couple you fancy treating this year then there are some wonderfully quirky, unique and personalised presents over on Etsy. In fact I may have to add a few of these to my own Christmas wish list hehe.
How sweet is this custom portrait. I’d love this adorning our home.
Marlee and Bryan are childhood sweethearts, they began dating in school and as they say the rest is history.
Their wedding celebration was so very special. Sweet pink and grey hues were used throughout. Think pastel maids and gypsophila bouquets with the gents in pale grey suits. Their outdoor ceremony which included their daughter looked just perfect. I especially love Marlee’s colour pop yellow Toms, so fun.
