One thing: I absolutely can’t possibly let this one get away without making an inspiration board, I thought. Nicola and Chris created a wedding that was true to their personalities, full of creativity and character.
I’ve blogged their vintage wedding in Derbyshire over the last two days. I didn’t want the blog features to end! So I’ve even kept some of Nicola’s wedding report back for you today.
“In the table setting, each person had one of the 130 vintage cup and saucers that I had been collecting over the last year from car boot sales, flea markets and a good proportion from a little man on Portobello rd market!
I then dotted around the old jars and bottles, containing plain bunches of sweet peas and babysbreath.
The central flower decoration on each table was in a vintage jug and was made up of ‘meadow type’ flowers. Place settings were made up of bunches of dried lavender with luggage tags with names on.
I had made individual ration books for people with the menu on. We wanted all English ingredients, so we served venison with tarragon jelly and onion rings, belly pork for main and local Bakewell pudding for dessert.”
