Today’s gorgeous bride and groom chose a destination wedding in the Champagne region of France. Their August wedding was held at Chateau de Mairy, in the small village of Mairy Sur Marne. I love the bright sunflowers and relaxed atmosphere of their day – it all looks so sunny and beautiful!

The venue itself did not need much decoration however the marquee that we used for the evening reception required lots! We did most of the decoration ourselves but had some added items, such as the large wine barrels and candle holders, from And Then We Got Married. My favourite was probably the jam jars that we used for flowers as well as tea lights and the polaroid station/guestbook. I enjoyed every moment of crafting the homemade elements and seeing everything in place the day before the wedding made it all worth while. Lots of our guests commented on how each detail of the day included an element of our personality. It was our goal from the start to ensure our wedding day was as personal to us as possible.
