Morning! Today’s wedding is a little special – it’s not the first time gorgeous bride Sarah has featured on a wedding blog… in fact she’s been on the English Wedding Blog very recently! As a wedding photographer Sarah sees so many weddings – and like many in the wedding industry she chose to do things differently. Her dress was made for her, and inspired by a genuine vintage dress she’d found on Pinterest. Stuart wore jeans, which I think is the best thing ever (Sarah adds that they had to be nice jeans!) and their florist Sarah Jones came up with the vintage medical theme incorporating lots of wonderful little glass bottles with flowers!
One of the things I love most about my life as a wedding blogger is stumbling across amazing little craft businesses – and I spend far too much time on Etsy! May I introduce you to someone very special today? Lovely Emma at Hapitat makes these wonderful recycled floral hair accessories using recycled and vintage fabrics. Aren’t they beautiful?
Emma discovered her talents when she made her first giant floral hair accessory out of left over silk from her homemade wedding dress. “My signature huge silk flower headpiece was born, and I’ve been creating beautiful handmade flowers, giant and small and in-between ever since.”
I adore Etsy. For visual wedding ideas and for those times when my eyes just need a little treat, I head to Etsy. Even before Pinterest! It’s a wonderful, gorgeous, inspiring little part of the internet and I adore it. Some of my favourite weddings on the blog have been from brides and grooms where Etsy has played a big part in their day… If you’d like to see a real wedding, then Naomi and Eric’s Etsy-filled wedding was a real favourite!
