Hey lovelies! I’d like to share two things which make me happy with you today! The first is simple: sunflowers. Gorgeous, yellow petals full of summer colour – and they’re fabulous in buttonholes and bouquets, don’t you think? (DIY brides – you can plant sunflower seeds from March onwards!) Oh, and the second thing which makes me happy? A story of an affordable and still beautiful wedding. Joe and Gemma hired a village hall, made their own ‘wedding punch’ and used it as lovely centrepieces, hung bunting from the beams and celebrated in style without breaking the bank. Gemma’s dress is breathtaking… Their wedding was submitted by lovely Paul from Stylish Wedding Photography who told me a little about the day.
“Joe & Gemma are friends of ours and had the most beautiful fun wedding last September. They very much did it on the cheap – but spent money on the things that were important to them. It rained all day long, but it was beautiful and shows what can be done on a budget.”
“Gemma and Joe’s wedding at Rotherwick Village Hall has to be one of our favourite weddings of all time. It really was a perfect example of how to spend money on the important things and save on others. And if it rains, then simply laugh and enjoy the day.”
