Congratulations Sophie and Gareth!

If you follow me on Instagram you will already know that my babe Sophie married her Gareth this weekend and I was one of her maids of honour (I shared the role with Ronnie). It was such a wonderful weekend – THE BEST in fact! We laughed, we cried, we did shots, we ate pizza and the spiciest hot dogs, we drunk danced (and some of us drunk fell over), we abused the photo booth, we stole the skull shaped candles from the centrepieces, we got covered in glitter…

It rained really heavily the night before and the whole morning while we were getting ready. We were all trying to think positively and hoping the clouds would clear for just long enough for their outdoor ceremony. Well not only did they clear in the nick of time (literally 10 minutes before we were all due to start walking out!) but the most spectacular rainbow appeared when they were doing their photos. Talk about the wedding gods shining down on them!

Colourful & Glittery Family Focused Wedding

glittery-family-focused-wedding-14

The inspiration for Mary and Alex’s colourful wedding was family. Having two kids, it was important to them that they were involved and enjoyed the day too.

“From the start we wanted a party where we happened to get married”, explained Mary. “We have two children now and we wanted them to be the main focus, as family is so important to us. I love colour and glitter and I wanted this to be all over the venue. I was often asked what my colour theme was and my response was ‘all of them!’ We also described it as ‘when a unicorn pukes glitter’ which I think we pulled off but in a quite a subtle way.”

“Lots of people avoid kids at weddings but ours was completely the opposite for us with nearly 20 invited to the day and well over 30 in the evening. This made the focus about them and having fun, something we hope our children will hold fond memories of for life.”

The bride wore a short, retro inspired dress but she customised it with a pink and teal petticoat, a Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory Liberace belt and even gold glitter trim around the neckline! She teamed it with gold Irregular Choice shoes and a rainbow gem birdcage veil.

Make Your Own Flower Crown Kits!

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.

Colourful, Retro East Yorkshire Wedding

retro-east-yorkshire-wedding-26

April and James’ wedding was colourful and retro inspired with lots of fun details. The bride wore a dress by Kitty and Dulcie and a veil from Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory.

“We envisaged a really fun and happy day, which included things we loved and that fitted with our personal style and tastes”, said the bride. “Generally the more colourful, vintage-y or kitsch the better! I spent a huge amount of time trawling through antiques stores, jumble sales, and charity shops for things that caught my eye. I love a bit of bric-a-brac! The owls were a result of a walk in the park one afternoon too. We stumbled upon Owl Adventures doing a public flying show – it just seemed like a fun thing that people would enjoy so we made the spontaneous decision to book it there and then!”

The couple ditched a lot of traditional elements and kept things as relaxed as possible. “We didn’t have a first dance, cake cutting, formal seating at the reception, or a typical three course meal situation!” April continued. “We didn’t even really have many group photos. We just wanted it to be easy going, and so we scrapped any elements that we didn’t want or that made us feel uncomfortable. And well, I guess I haven’t been to many weddings with the combination of owls, pizza and a bouncy disco!”
