With a love of travel, it was only right that WWW readers Emma and Hugh’s (aka Emmugh!) wedding day held on the 6th April 2014 at Pangdean Barn, had a fun adventure theme. They had some wonderful touches, from the fabric map bow ties to the suitcase cake and map stationery. Adore.
Emma and Hugh did much of the crafting themselves and came up with some brilliant games which even match made some single friends; the DIY blooms looked divine too.
Emma was radiant in her lace dress with plaited up do and simple jewellery. Soooo very pretty.
Thanks so very much to the fabulous Sara Reeve for sharing her images with us today.

I so love an individual creative couple who pour their heart and soul into their wedding.
WWW readers Todd and Frankie tied the knot on the 12th April 2014 at Bruisyard Barn in Suffolk. They had a vegetarian menu for all of the guests and décor inspired by woodland animals, with sweet woodland animal place settings.
Frankie looked gorgeous with her statement glasses, wavy hair, boho dress, Rock n Rose hairpiece and Tatty Devine earrings. While Todd donned an amazing skull jacket by Alexander McQueen and had braces underneath for a quirky edge. Such an effortlessly cool couple.
Thanks goes to Rebecca Prigmore Photography for sharing these brilliant photographs.

WWW readers Nicole and Tommy tied the knot on the 14th March 2014, holding their ceremony at the Guildhall Northampton followed by a reception at the Tithe Barn Wellingborough. They had a vision of a fun red polka dot wedding with a budget of £3000 to achieve it.
These two had so much fun all day long.
They had cute and kitsch red home made décor, with quirky stationery, sweets, fairy lights, balloons and felt bouquets.
Nicole looked amazing in her custom made custom made polka dot dress, red bow shoes, name necklace and red lips, while Tommy donned a hounds tooth suit with fab red bow tie. Brilliant.
Thanks so much to Steven Anthony Photography for sharing his amazing photographs today.

So it’s time for the almost conclusion of my home-grown wedding flowers project. All of the flowers in this bouquet are from my garden.
From all of the seedlings and seeds I sowed the Cow Parsley was the only real major success I have had (so far). An important lesson I learned and therefore a big tip from me would be to have a back up plan if you are growing your own blooms. Luckily I have quite a few established plants in the garden that provided the Sweet Peas, Daisies and Thistles.
A fair bit of effort did go into growing the blooms, but the satisfaction of seeing the end result is just wonderful. If you want to grow your own you could always ask a florist if they would be happy to arrange the flowers for you if you aren’t too confident.
Anyway here is my attempt at a pretty relaxed hand tied bridal bouquet….
What You Need |
* A selection of home grown flowers and foliage
* Florist Wire
Try to cut and arrange the flowers as close to the wedding as possible. The night before or the morning of the wedding would ensure the blooms stay fresh.
Be sure to prepare your stems. Take off excess leaves, dunk the ends in boiling water and give them a good drink of cool water too.
Begin by holding stems in your hand tightly, adding in each stem in turn. Try to work in odds for a natural feel.
For this bouquet I wanted a long informal hand tied feel rather than a structured shape, so I used the Cow Parsley as a backdrop to the other flowers.
