A Geeky, Offbeat, Tea Party, Country Wedding!
September 28, 2009
Boy oh boy…I have to say there is a hell lot of wedding awesomeness flying in and around my inbox this week. I have been inundated with so many emails of gorgeousness that it really has been hard to keep up. Fret not though as I do plan on blogging all of the beauty at some point!
Right now, well what can I say that could possibly live up to these? The very lovely Rosalie of the
Tea and Whimsy blog booked my buddy David McNeil for her wedding to Jamie last month. She has gone over all the details, budget saving tricks (they only spent about £4000/$6000 on the whole thing!) and DIY gems on her site, but I’m just here to share the swoonfest that is these photographs…oh and to draw your attention to her freakin’ awesome bouquet! Yes those are real (dyed) roses!
Thanks to Rosalie for allowing me to share her wedding and of course my bestest wedding buddy David for being so bloomin’ wicked. You need to book him. You really really do.

Cute, Quirky & Colourful Backyard Wedding: Skip & Soya
June 17, 2013
Are you ready for some unapologetic girlishness mixed with cute button and origami details alongside a kick ass heavily tattooed couple, pink dreadlocks, animal onesies and an awesome backyard setting? Well then you my dear are in luck because that's exactly what I have for you today!
Soya and Skip met in a rock club in Lincoln and after just a year of dating she proposed on 29th February! "From the beginning we knew we didn't want a traditional wedding", the bride began. "They are lovely and all, but they can really lack personality. We used things that we love to decorate. My favourite part of the whole day was the ceremony. It was emotional but with lots of light-hearted laughs. Our readings and vows summed us both up perfectly. We even had mention of our ever growing number of pet rats, Batman and Robin and a zombie apocalypse in our vows which were followed by a hand fasting."

A Backyard Beach Wedding Planned in Three Weeks: Nellie & Matt
September 13, 2012
Nellie & Matt planned their Whistable wedding in just three short weeks. They wanted something small, something personal and something relaxed. They found the amazing Beacon House, right on the beach, for their ceremony and were able to use the back garden of the bride's brother's holiday cottage for the reception.
"Serendipity and our amazingly supportive family and friends brought our wedding together in just 3 weeks," the bride began. "Matt and I had been engaged for 3 years, neither of us are planners but we had a clear idea of the kind of wedding we wanted, a relaxed, seaside celebration centred around our close friends, family, good food and drink. But every option we explored in Cambridge and Brighton, our two home cities, in one way or another tied us into expensive packages, so we put off the wedding and skipped to the baby."
