Gayle and Jay’s wedding theme was nautical and geeky with a hint of vintage. They had lot of Lego, the bride carried a button bouquet and they had some paper flowers instead of real ones.
“People commented on all the little touches and how we had made the day ‘so us’”, said the bride. “We were very lucky to not have pressure from others to be traditional. We also paid for everything ourselves meaning we had no financial ties to anyone. Our budget was £9000.”
“My dress came from Honeypie Boutique and I bought it online. A lot of the wedding was DIY and our friend Laura made all the paper flowers. Another friend, Rachel, helped me decorate the jam jars that the flowers were in. I made the signs for the tables in frames with scrabble letters, chalk pens and a piece of slate from my mum’s garden! Jay created the build-your-own centrepiece sign to go with the Lego too.”
