Hey lovely! Flex those creative fingertips because I have some gorgeous homemade wedding ideas for you this fabulous* Monday afternoon!

*Oh, I know what you’re saying about Mondays but trust me: it is now… and all because I have a special feature for you: this ‘get the look’ blog is inspired by gorgeous bride and groom Ananda and Darren, whose Hackney Brewery wedding featured on the blog a little while ago. It’s a creative treat: in Ananda’s own words, “There are some wonderful things you can buy but making tassels and garlands ourselves not only saved us hundreds of pounds but also gave us some lovely creative weeks with friends in the lead up to the wedding.”


It’s about time for a beautiful real English wedding, don’t you think? Today’s is one of the loveliest weddings of the summer and comes from a brand new London venue (for me, at least!) Hackney Brewery. Now… being a northern girl I do love a craft beer or two – and so this is a bit of a dream wedding for me! Today’s gorgeous bride Ananda described her summer wedding to Darren as a “beautiful & raucous DIY brewery knees up” which sounds as perfect as it looked!
