It’s been too long

1aGoodness me, I can’t even believe how long it has been since I have blogged. Far. Too. Long. I’m not really sure what my excuse is. The winter months have just had me watching a lot of Buffy and a lot of Daria, doing a lot of crafting and some home improvement. But mainly I’ve been snuggling under a blanket with a husband and/or kitty.

I decided that to make return after so long I would have to do it in style and so here are our pro wedding pics. Massive thanks to the beautiful Grace Elkin for capturing our big day at Halstead House.


5Our colour scheme was pink and green of every shade – I tried to make sure we went for brights over pastels but a few pastel shades managed to sneak in there.


1One of the best parts of our day was the first look photo session we did. It was so calming to spend a little time together before the ceremony to enjoy the farm, and to get a lot of our couple shots out of the way so we could spend the rest of the day with our guests.



7“It must be love” by Madness was our theme for the day. We used it for processional, and recessional performed very kindly by Andy’s best man on the guitar. It was also featured in the band’s set during the reception (again fronted by Andy’s best man).






11For anyone else planning a wedding right now I guess my advice would be to make use of Google Docs, it definitely made planning a breeze for us! And, don’t sweat the last minute things – there will always be something you remember at the final hour but that says to me that it really wasn’t that important in the first place, so forget about it. Oh, and good luck!
