Who here loves a DIY wedding? I think most couples try their best to include a bit of DIY into their wedding when the planning starts. For our wedding, my mum made some tablet to put into little boxes. A few days before the wedding, we made up all of those little boxes (they were flat packed) to hold the tablet. Glue dots held on pieces of ribbon that coordinated with our colour scheme. It was a lot of work. In general, we didn’t go over the top with decorations but we had storm lanterns as table centrepieces. Our florist Flowers by Cherry Blossom put some green foliage around the base of the lanterns. You don’t need to go over the top at all. Go with the little things that suit your style and the theme that you’re going for.
Chelsey & Blair’s wedding was the perfect version of DIY. Set up a marquee in the spacious back garden and boom! You are ready for a wedding. By keeping things as simple as possible, they got married in the back garden of Blair’s family with a humanist celebrant. Blair’s mum has a gift for being able to arrange faux flowers. She made all the faux flower arrangements, incorporating the pastel theme that was throughout. The attention to detail was impeccable. You’ll see all the vintage crockery and tableclothes, and I loved that they just seemed to match in to theme effortlessly.
Some of my favourite personalised touches
As two huge Game of Thrones fans, Chelsey and Blair bought themselves a 12 year old House Baratheon whisky, used in the quaich. The flowers arrangements that Blair’s mum made. The little faux flowers in the hedge where we did the family portraits. I absolutely loved the confetti walk.
