Kitsch & Quirky Summer Wedding at Ridge Farm

kitsch-summer-wedding-at-ridge-farm-63

They were married at Ridge Farm in Sussex and had a wedding that felt quirky, fun and full of love. Tamsyn and Tom served pizza at dinner, tacos during the evening and decorated the tables with kitschy figurines that they’d collected from charity shops themselves.

The inspiration for our wedding was the venue”, Tamsyn explained. “Once we found it, that played a huge part into how we visualised the day. I had initially thought I would go for something very different than the one we ended up falling in love with. We had both initially really liked the idea of having a winter wedding at Wilton’s Music Hall in London, which is a venue that we’ve been to see various shows at frequently. But then as soon as we stepped foot on Ridge Farm, we both just fell completely in love with it and ran with an outdoor Summer wedding instead!”

“We didn’t have a particular set theme, but we used a LOT of lampshades in our decorations. We also themed our tables around songs we love, and then bought kitschy bits and pieces from charity shops and car boot sale to fit the songs. For example, one of our tables was Love Cats, which we decorated by loads of cat figurines. We were quite picky about which bits to buy, favouring figurines that made us laugh, so the whole buying process took about a year to complete.”

One of the most enjoyable parts of my sister’s hen do last summer was making our own flower crowns with Crown and Glory. In fact it was so fun that Sophie and I decided we had to create something for the rest of you to be able to experience the same thing. And so the concept of these DIY flower crown kits was born!

So whether you want to do it on your hen do like we did, at a birthday party, on a rainy Saturday afternoon, or you just want to make your own flower crown for your wedding then these kits are for you.

Rainbow Roller Disco Brides

Spray paint… glitter… neon… If you like all things colourful then you’re going to adore this roller disco inspired bridal shoot!

“The theme of this shoot was a mash up of all of our favourite things”, said photographer Jessica Withey. “That meant glitter, rainbows, unicorns, balloons – like a dream you had when you were 4!”

“This shoot derived after a long year of working in the wedding industry. Each of us involved had a desire to shoot something ‘for us’, in our style – without being paid, and without a style brief from a client. Working in the wedding industry you wind up seeing a lot of weddings and after a while you’re ready to see something dramatically different. So we decided to shake some traditions up and get creative. Why can’t a bride wear a glitter parting in her hair?”

a-good-day-inc-custom-1

It seems that everywhere you look these days there are wedding blogs and magazines sharing ideas on how you can personalise your wedding. From the cake you choose, the dress you wear, even the flowers you carry, there appears to be nothing you can’t put your own stamp on.

This is all well and good, but what if you want something truly one-of-a-kind for your wedding? Something no-one else will have? Then the answer is, of course, to go custom made and get something designed to your exact requirements and ideas.

The Wedding That Trended on Twitter

Nicky and David were married in East London. They had a relatively small budget of £5000 but they were able to make it stretch by avoiding wedding specific items wherever possible. They hosted their reception in a town hall, the bride wore a dress from Monsoon, they had a homemade cake and put all the flowers together themselves. They even skipped the wedding car, choosing to get the train between their ceremony and reception venues.

“I’m not a wedding-y person”, admitted the bride, “so it wasn’t like it was something I had always dreamed of or planned. We wanted the day to be filled with in-jokes and things we find funny like cats, Twitter (we met on Twitter!), plants, books, tea and cheese. I tried to get a kitten ring bearer for the ceremony – but people were surprisingly reluctant to help me with this. I actually started to question my own sanity at this point too. Someone did actually buy us a tiny white kitten as a wedding gift though! We named her Peaches.”
