It’s time for part 2 of Daniel and Amy’s wedding day. YAY.
Amy has to be one of the most crafty brides I have ever featured. A crafters dream day, with embroidered, cross stitched and hand sewn details galore. There was a marvellous chalkboard seating plan, reels of cotton, DIY blooms and craft paper stationery. The vegan cake table really was out of this world and there were sweet activities for the children.
Amy found her 1950s vintage wedding dress online which she teamed with mustard shoes and pretty twist hair style. While Daniel opted for a vintage style blue tweed suit from Topman. Oh my.
Thanks so much to Neil Jackson Photographic for providing the beautiful imagery.
THE VENUE | After week of trawling websites for somewhere close to home and the right size, I stumbled across a real wedding at Victoria Hall in Saltaire. I’d been to vintage fairs at the hall and knew that it was stunning, so once I’d seen that it was available for hire for weddings I knew it was the one. We used the hall for both the ceremony and the celebrations afterwards, so it had the huge plus that guests who , like us, had small children didn’t have to ferry them between venues. It was also really important to us that we weren’t tied into in-house catering – we knew that we wanted to use a caterer who specialised in vegetarian food and would provide the type of food we love.
BUDGET | We spent more than we’d intended to on the venue, but everything else was done relatively cheaply. We chose a caterer we were really excited about, but because we decided to go for a totally vegetarian menu even this was much cheaper than average.

Can you believe the first of the 2014 WWW real brides is a newly wed already! Ekkk, it’s gone so fast and I am so excited to share Amy’s wedding with you all today. First up I have the beautiful ceremony and this afternoon I shall be sharing their super crafty reception.
Daniel and Amy married on the 21st June 2014 at Victoria Hall in Yorkshire. They had a vision of a laid back, kid friendly wedding full of dancing in the evening. There was gorgeous vintage attire, sweet florals and a lot of love.
Thanks goes to Neil Jackson Photographic for sharing his images today.
THE PROPOSAL | We talked about marriage as part of our plan when we decided to have a baby two years ago, I don’t think that either of us had seen marriage as particularly important until we realised how nice it’d be to cement our little family. So after our little girl Rose was born we chose a vintage ring together, and I played the waiting game of when Dan would hand it over. A couple of months after choosing the ring we went on our first family trip away to Edinburgh, and Dan popped the question on a beautiful spring morning at Edinburgh Zoo! Rose was asleep in her pram and we were at a lovely look out spot overlooking the whole city, it was perfect.
BEAUTIFUL BRIDESMAIDS | I decided to keep in simple and asked my sister to be my bridesmaid alongside my daughter, and I’m really pleased that I did this. We thought about having them in matching dresses, or at least matching colours, but in the end just went with a cute white outfit for Rose and a floral vintage style dress for my sister, they both looked beautiful.

This afternoon’s wedding is super different and unique. I just love the whole atmosphere and ethos of the day.
Dan and Rose married on the 21st September 2013 with a Welsh mythical and gypsy ritual outdoor ceremony followed by a medieval style banquet reception at Weobley Castle in Wales. The whole day was a combined effort by the bride, groom and their loved ones, with experience of organising festival Nozstock, it worked out perfectly.
There was plenty of live music too with Dan and Rose performing themselves in the evening. Rose wore a beautiful vintage Edwardian dress from Elizabeth Avey, while Dan also went vintage in his 70s style flairs. Amazing.
Thanks so very much to Mairead Mchugh for sharing her lovely photographs.

With a budget of £5000 WWW readers Rachel and Chris got super crafty and DIY’d much of their wedding day. They tied the knot on Saturday 24th May 2014 at Newstead Abbey in Nottingham.
It was important to them to bring their loved ones together; with a lot of smiles and the sweetest little ones. Rachel arranged the flowers and crafted the colourful decor herself, I especially love the fun naked sponge cake.
Rachel looked beautiful in lace, while Chris donned a polka dot preppy look. Oh so lovely.
