How is your Easter weekend going? It’s been so lovely taking a few days to relax and enjoy our beach. Don’t forget, I’m inviting all wedding suppliers to apply to join the English Wedding Directory for just £30 this weekend – I’d love to hear from you! Now, if I had to use just one word to describe this wedding, it would be happiness. Everything just radiates joy to me… the fabulous smiles of our beautiful bride and groom Nicola and Joe, the cheery, bright barn venue and the special little touches. It’s all just perfect, and so wonderfully summery too!

“The venue was so stunning we wanted to enhance it rather than transform it. We filled the garden with paper flowers we’d made in our colour scheme, and hung bunting and fairy lights in the barn.

I handmade all the bunting – I think I got to about 100 metres worth by the end! Me and my girlfriends also made about 400 paper tulips to scatter round the venue, we hated the sight of them by the end but wine and snacks got us through and they looked amazing on the day.
