Caswell House in Oxford was the perfect venue – it’s a beautiful venue with lots of areas for photos. The team at Caswell are incredible, they made every effort on the day to make it special, including bringing canapés during the photos!

Hannah and Tim are fortunate enough to have a very talented family friend who arranged their venue flowers and Hannah’s Nan is a retired florist so she arranged the bouquets. Most of the flowers were sourced from Green & Gorgeous flower farm and supplemented with some supermarket flowers and greenery from home. The rented milk churns and watering cans, vases and jam jars were perfect for other displays and table flowers.

The caterers came with the venue. The rest of the suppliers were found online through reading reviews, and looking at previous weddings, or via family & friends.

Tim’s aunt made Hannah and Tim’s invitations. Save the Date magnets and thank you cards were purchased online.

Hannah wore a Maggie Sottero dress from Victoria’s Bridal boutique in Orpington. Vicky and Hannah designed the veil together using lace from Hannah’s Mum’s wedding dress, which Vicky then had sewed onto the veil. Hannah’s earrings and bracelet were a present from her Nan for her 18th birthday (something old). Tim wore a suit from SuitSupply – he chose the design and fabric, and they fitted his suit.

Amanda Durkin did Hannah’s hair and make-up. She was really calm and fun on the day, which helped everyone to have a really great morning getting ready.

“The bunting was the homemade element which took the most time, we cut out 230 hessian triangles and glued lace on in alternating patterns. I then sewed the triangles to cotton binding to finish off. We cut the triangles out as part of a family weekend which was fun, and lovely to have everyone involved. We also made our own table plan, using a hand stencil, and the lighting on the table was Ikea jars with Amazon fairy lights, where we added a personalised lid to hide the battery pack! The homemade elements were fun, but don’t underestimate the time involved. It’s lovely to see these things on the day (and in the photos) and remember the experience of creating them.

Our incredible friend Lauren made delicious cupcakes for our wedding cake, as well as a small cake for cutting. She decorated these with homemade flowers we created using a mold and wrapped them in lace wrappers. We then displayed these on cupcake stands we borrowed from family and friends.

We had a live band – Get Carter from Function Central. We love live music so this made a real difference to our reception and the band were great. Tim’s cousin is an incredible singer, so she also sang a few songs for us in between the bands sets, which was so special!
