DIY-Heavy Sunshine Yellow Summer Picnic Wedding

If this wedding doesn’t turn your frown upside down there just may be no hope for you. Looking at these sunshine-filled shots almost makes me feel like its actually summer outside.

The wedding in question belongs to Carmel and Killian who were married last July on Rosedew Farm in South Wales. “Our wedding was inspired by British summer fairs and picnics”, began the bride. “Luckily it was the best summer that we’ve seen in years as well so it was perfect! We love how much we did for ourselves, it was really hard work but it paid off in the end and everything just felt that little bit more special that we’d put our heart and soul into it all. Literally everything, even down to the napkins, was hand made.”

With a budget of £10,000 (although in reality they spent closer to £14,000) they saved lots of money by having the bride’s dad do the catering (what a champ!) They also saved on Carmel’s dress (a vintage find that was only £60!), by everyone doing their own hair and make up and by the bride making the bridesmaid dresses herself! Their cake that was gifted to them by friends and they made all the stationery and did all the flower themselves too.

Rustic Farm Wedding with Surprise Wrestling Match!

Yes, you read that right. A surprise wrestling match!

Lorna and Chris’ classic and idyllic farm wedding was held at Skylark Farm, Northamptonshire. With a warm colour palette of buttery yellows, their beautifully rustic ceremony was held in front of “the old-faithful Pinterest PVC pipe backdrop”, which they totally nailed! The rustic DIY theme continued into the reception, where Lorna had crocheted all the favour bags and jar cosies with some help from Chris’ mum. “Wedding DIYs can be really satisfying,” Lorna says, “but also really stressful if time management isn’t your thing, as we found out!”

OK, so let’s get to it. It really is as exceptional as I’ve built it up to be: THE WRESTLING. “We knew early on that we would incorporate a wrestling theme into our day as its something we enjoy watching together and has been a big part of our relationship.” Lorna explains. “We still wanted a fairly classic rustic look for the wedding, so we kept the wrestling theme to the centrepieces, table plan and entertainment. Truth be told, we did start looking at YouTube videos of brides and grooms making wrestling themed entrances down the aisle…but eventually decided that was a step too far for us!”

Intimate (Almost) Elopement in Williamsburg

Karly and Richard’s wedding was inspired by shotgun weddings of the late 60s and early 70s. They wanted their day to be as least wedding-y as any wedding could be, but still celebrate their marriage. They also planned everything in just eight weeks!

“We didn’t have much time to plan our wedding”, said the bride. “We decided eight weeks out that we would get married on April 11th. In hindsight, having a couple of more months would have been useful but considering the short time span, we managed to exceed our expectations of what we could achieve.”

Their wedding ceremony was held at City Hall in New York. “We loved the idea of getting married at City Hall – a real New York experience. We wanted to get in and out and for it not to be a big event. The important thing for us was the reception and we chose a local restaurant that had a significant personal history for us. Bar Velo in Williamsburg is a small and intimate restaurant that could only accommodate the 20 people that we invited. It was perfect as it allowed us to have an intimate dinner with our close family and friends.”

Oh Elena and Paul’s wedding makes me so incredibly happy! Her vintage yellow wedding dress, those home made wooden flowers, the beautiful ceremony arch, that Californian sunshine… it’s just all so glorious!

“Both of us are artists and we wanted to do something that reflected our personalities and lifestyle”, wrote Elena. “We wanted to celebrate our love using bright colors and crafty designs. Were were inspired by Scandinavian folk art and vintage fashion. In fact, we avoided the use of the color black, instead choosing brown to keep the atmosphere softer and folkier!”

Roxy and Daniel’s ceremony took place in Daniel’s parents’ neighbourhood, Bourland Field Estates, in Cresson, TX. It also just happens to be an airport neighbourhood! The streets are runways and everyone has massive garages to house their planes. The couple chose yellow as the main colour in their wedding so what could have been more perfect than a brilliant yellow plane that was lent by their neighbour for the photos!?

“Is there such a thing as laid-back vintage wedding?” Roxy asked, “because that’s totally what it was. I love how everything came together! The books as centrepieces, hydrangeas, chess board cake. Our guests said the environment was so relaxed, they felt right at home.”

Nree and Adrian were married on a Friday afternoon in February. Their farm venue set the tone and theme for the day, which they accessorised with homemade yellow details. “Our wedding was summery, relaxed, vintage and handmade”, wrote the bride. “Our main objective was to keep the cost down! So styling and hand making everything was a top priority (also something that I LOVED doing). We wanted to be super relaxed and for our guest feeling relaxed on our special day, so having the wedding at Gum Gully was perfect. The sun was shining, the birds were signing and all we could smell was that sweet country air.”

“In terms of styling we wanted a handmade and vintage feel so we used things like fabric bunting, lace table clothes, jam jars for drinking glasses and old pickle bottles for vases. We enjoyed using materials such as hessian and twine to decorate almost everything in sight! We also got to play with animals all morning on the farm, feeding little baby goats, deer, chickens and cows. How much more relaxing does it get!?”
