Welcome back to the English Wedding Blog! If you were here yesterday you’ll have seen the first of our weddings of the year – Jess and Rich’s fabulously colourful vintage wedding in London. Today we’re in Cornwall for a beautifully whimsical, DIY-filled country wedding which I know you’ll love.
“We didn’t really have a theme, everything was very ‘us’. I suppose, understated, elegant, natural, romantic. We made a lot of elements ourselves, we love that sort of thing. We made our wooden signs and painted them ourselves, including the menu and table plan which were made from wooden pallets, and the Bride and Groom signs on the backs of our chairs.
Try not to get overwhelmed by the amount that’s on offer to buy or hire for your big day. It’s not about how much decor you have or having things because you’ve seen them on Pinterest and you feel they are compulsory, it’s about your friends and family being together to celebrate your love. Will and I saved so much by spending time on making our decor, thoroughly enjoyed it along the way, and felt so proud on the day because it was all a result of our partnership.
Whilst planning, try and remember what’s important to you, there’s so much out there available from different suppliers, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and confused about what you ‘should’ and ‘shouldn’t’ have at your wedding, but it is YOUR wedding and it should be however you two want it to be, and it’ll be perfect.
The day is about the two of you and your love, and family and friends, so on the day, make sure you leave all the planning behind you and relax and enjoy it, every moment! it really does go as quickly as people say, so take it all in.
We had flowers with a natural flowing kind of feel, whilst being glamorous and romantic. Colours ranged from champagne, creamy whites, through blushes and into deep wine colour. There was lots of greenery and foliage throughout, with such a mixture of textures and tones, they really were amazing. My bouquet and the table arrangements were my favourite! Our florist was Laura Hingston Flowers, from Newton Abbot, www.laurahingstonflowers.com.
