Well hello!! It has been far too long since I posted. Crazy long. Ok, so what have you been up to? Oh, you want to see photos from the wedding? OK!
Each order of service came in a little bag with a tissue “for happy tears” – you might recognise that idea from one of my earlier posts that featured Smitten On Paper’s blog.
The bridesmaids dresses were made by my sister (based on this dress pattern) and the flowers were all done by my mum. We had hoped to use flowers from our gardens, and although that worked perfectly for the table centres, my mum bought flowers for the bouquets that would last all day out of water.
The weather on the day was a little too cool and windy for the outdoor ceremony that we planned so we decided to switch to the small barn at the venue which turned out to be perfectly intimate. We went outside afterwards to take advantage of the gorgeous landscape for the family and formal shots.
After a few drinks in the bar we headed into the reception barn which looked stunning covered in fairy lights, bunting and ribbon curtains. I’m so glad we decided to hire chairs instead of just chair covers, they looked great with the handmade cushions.
The dessert buffet made a huge impact and although at first looked too beautiful to eat soon everyone was digging in to the cakes (so many cakes!), cupcakes, cake pops, macarons, sweets and cheese board. I would fully recommend this is as an alternative to the traditional savoury evening buffet, it was one of the best decisions we made.
These are some of my favourite shots from the day, all taken by guests and posted on Facebook. We’ll have the professional shots very soon, can’t wait!
I also have all of the engagement shots now. I’ve offered them to a couple of wedding blogs but if they aren’t picked up then I’ll post them here next week, in the mean time I’m working on a honeymoon post.
