Rock n Roll Bride x Crown & Glory
Hollie and Adrian wanted their wedding to feel relaxed and just really chilled out. They decided to host their reception in their own back garden which meant they could do exactly what they wanted. The ceremony was held in their local parish church, just a stone’s throw from home, which they decorated with
all the flowers and foliage! In fact the flowers ended up being their single biggest cost of the otherwise DIY wedding, but they provided exactly the look they were after for their day.
The DIY projects were plentiful for this day including the dream catchers made from willow, hazel, doilies and feathers. Adrian, a friend and the bride’s dad made the bar and even their own and composting toilet from palettes!! This was not only better for the environment but saved money because they didn’t have to hire in portaloos.
The bride’s mum made pies (savoury and sweet), the graphic designer groom created all the wedding stationery and Hollie made the confetti by drying their our own rose petals.
They found dealing with other people’s opinions the hardest part of wedding planning, but stuck to their guns and did things in a way that made them happiest. “Do it your way,” Hollie advises. “it’s really not worth getting stressed or overwhelmed over, there is no right or wrong way to get married, its totally personal.”

Sally and James' first meeting was unusual to say the least! "James sent a text to an old work colleague seeing if he fancied a catch up", said Sally. "Unbeknown to James his friend had recently got a new phone and no longer had that number. 250 miles away, in Hull, I had just got a new phone and the network provider had reused the number. I received a random text asking to meet up and I jokingly replied! 11 years, 3 kids and a mortgage later we finally got married! Coincidence or fate!?"

November 23, 2012
We may be well on our way towards the depths of winter (waah!) but I thought I'd just cling onto those hazy Summer days for just a little while longer by sharing Lynne & Stevie's June wedding. The quintessentially British vibe perfectly accompanied by vintage and retro touches was just too good to pass up.

Ali and Ben met while they were both working at PlayStation. This mutual love fro all things techy and geeky was a recurring theme throughout their festival inspired wedding.
