Hello there! This morning’s wedding blog is a special feature full of ideas, inspired by Becky and Greg’s Farbridge Barn wedding on the blog yesterday. Lovely photographer Sophie Duckworth sent me so many images of the gorgeous details I simply had to give them a little more attention here! I adore a creative bride and groom, and if you love crafting as much as Becky then this is going to be right up your street!

Families and friends often play a big part in weddings: gone are the days when Dad’s only role was to walk you down the aisle and make a speech. If your Pop is handy with a hammer he’s more likely to be making your wedding signposts, huge wooden initials full of lightbulbs… you name it! And Mums and Grans are often recruited not only for cakes but to sew miles of bunting while you and your other half print, glue and stick invitations, table plans, orders of service…


Oh dear!!! There are so many gorgeous things to show you in today’s real English wedding I think I might break my own blog. Oops! But Becky and Greg had the loveliest day with such wonderful personal touches I just have to show you everything! From the polka dot table plan to the quirky ice cream seller, the chalkboard sign, Becky’s own designer wedding cake, the union jack details and luscious hydrangeas everywhere… I can almost smell the summer breeze!

Becky looks stunning in her Sassi Holford wedding dress, which she bought second-hand. She told me the dress was advertised online, “and I just fell in love with it instantly.  It would be a shame for such a beautiful dress to only be worn once and I am so glad that the dress could continue its journey.” What a great way to find a wedding dress! And what an awesome bride – Becky, you rock!
