well after a very exciting few weeks off, I’m back! so much has happened its been insane, and it probably going to fill up quite a few Blog entry’s so I will space them out so that you don’t get some kind of wedding, honeymoon, crochet madness and start eating your own hair and calling me mother!!
Anyway like I said its been an action packed time and obviously the most exciting part of it all was our wedding! yay! It was honestly the best day of my life. I want to thank everyone that came and of course my husband for actually agreeing to marry me in the first place!
The day was amazing! in the UK we have had some terrible weather lately but somehow on the wedding day, the sun came out and it was so beautiful! The wedding was a vintage inspired handmade do with strong links to the film back to the future!
I want to keep a lot of it to myself, as it was obviously a very personal day. So I don’t want to post to many photos of it. However I did want to share with you some of the handmade and creative parts of the wedding.
As I said before it was a vintage inspired wedding, the bridesmaids dresses and all the flowers were along this theme. my maid of honor Gemma Garner has done her own Blog entry on this which you can read here… vintage style wedding flowers. I decided to press my bouquet so I will let you know how that goes in a few weeks when I can take a look. However at the moment I am resisting the temptation! Instead I will just show you a photo of it that was taken on the day…
My bouquet and the button holes ware Gypsophila and Carnations and the bridesmaids just had Gypsophila. I wanted a very simple vintage look. elegant and not overdone!
They were wrapped in white lace as well to add to the vintage feel.
Below is a photo of myself and Gemma looking very happy! I love this photo.. unfortunately I don’t have the wedding CD on me so these photos are scanned in which means they haven’t come out as the best quality but they still look pretty damn awesome!
Below is a photo of the bridesmaids looking at there glittery shoes! They wore an aqua knee-high dress, white cardigan and a white crochet ribbon in their hair. They looked so sweet it was the thing that started me crying just as I had my eye make-up done! whoops!
We also made a few little things. My husband Ian Purdy who has a Blog here http://ianpurdyart.wordpress.com/ is crazily talented and did so much art work in the run up to the wedding. Here is just some of the work…..
Our amazing wedding topper. This really made people giggle!
This was our wedding seat chart. We are both really into our films especially those of Alfred Hitchcock, so Ian made this as a surprise for me. The drawings in the background are of the place he asked me to marry him and the rest was based on the artwork for the film ‘Psycho’ … not quite sure what he was trying to say there! lol!
These are the wedding invites he made.. He is so talented! I am so proud of him!
We also made all the table decorations… I handmade the table confetti which was small hole punched hearts out of different papers, and I also made all the favours meanwhile Gemma spent ages collecting loads of pine-cones for me then sent them to me in the post! Three boxes of pinecones… if the postman had looked inside I think he would have been very confused! This is what we did with them in the end! I think it looked really good! We got a lot of comments on them, however I can’t claim creative responsibility for them, that was Gemma’s idea and they looked really cool
anyway… that’s just a little taster of the day. As I said I don’t want to be sharing too much because I want to keep some of it just for us but I hope that you enjoyed this .
