I honestly don’t know where to begin with today’s real wedding – the title doesn’t do it justice! Emily is our beautiful bride and her wedding story is full of little moments of delight. From the nun who catches the bouquet, to ‘Heston’ style catering, via a backwards proposal to Rob written on Emily’s own bottom… I absolutely love this to bits!

All images are by Lime Leaf Wedding Photography in Devon. Wedding photographer Laura says, “the more people we spoke to on the day the more it became clear that EVERYONE loved these two, and if there is one phrase I heard quite a lot on the day it was “that’s just so Emily”. Emily is extremely creative and was determined to put her own stamp on the day.”

She most certainly did! This is fabulous from beginning to end, words and pictures… ace! There are funny moments, beautiful ones and touching, heartwarming ones too. Shall I hand straight over to the bride to share her story with you? She tells it so well…

More than anything else in the world, your wedding should celebrate you and your love. A wedding should be personal, it should be comfortable and it should be right for you.

So when Rob and Jayne’s wedding landed in my inbox I was over the moon. Here’s a couple who bask in their individuality. Both gorgeous and creative, Rob and Jayne’s wedding was a day to remember, and then some! And Lancashire wedding photographer Jonathan Bean was there to capture the whole day for their album…

The other thing I love is when a groom shares his wedding story. Rob’s wedding report begins with a romantic proposal story which brought a tear to my eye – and he tells the story of his wedding to Jayne so beautifully – so this wedding blogger is now handing over to a better writer, just for one day! Rob…

Enjoy!

Alice in Wonderland is a fascinating tale brimming with imagination and creativity. It starts off with Alice tumbling into a very deep rabbit hole but her descent is quite odd having time to see that the hole is lined with book shelves and glass jars.

At Paper Whispers, we love the unusual and creative. One of the first Wonderland inspired creations we made was The Love Jar. It is a beautiful alternative (or addition!) to the traditional guest book and would look stunning on the wedding table much like the jars Alice passed in her tumble.

The love Jar is a delicate glass jar in an apothecary style which is packed with love notes. It makes a beautiful keepsake and is an interactive talking point as guests and members of the wedding party participate in writing notes for the jar.
