Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m still away from my desk on a Big Adventure – but of COURSE I’d never leave you without something beautiful to feast your eyes on. Today’s Parley Manor wedding is full of glorious sunflowers, with stunning bride Carley rocking an unusual and beautiful Maggie Sottero gown. She and handsome hubby Dan describe their wedding as a “relaxed cocktail fuelled sunny garden party in the perfect setting” – which is everything I think a wedding should be!

The day was styled around summer colours and sunflowers, with red accents (and the bridesmaids look fabulous in gorgeous red Watters Wtoo dresses to suit the theme). Carley and Dan found their suppliers via their venue, and then did their own research online to put together their perfect team of creatives to make their dream day come true!

Today – I have more. There are literally hundreds of wedding DIY ideas for you here – all vintage inspired, creative and fun. Sally’s ideas for the wedding came together beautifully and Dwiko Arie‘s images captured her inspiration so well.

Rather than making my own inspiration board I’m going to show you some of the images Dwiko sent, just as they are (this wedding photography blog is seriously inspiring – there’s a link at the end you HAVE to visit) and use Sally’s own words to share the details with you.

Enjoy!

Sally is a big fan of Style Me Pretty and Once Wed blogs, and took inspiration from the wedding blogs she loved. The theme for her and Gareth’s wedding day was vintage English with a Caribbean twist.

Especially in the light of the blog post on Hindsight Bride last week, I’m already enjoying sharing this perfect fairytale wedding with you. There are tons of details. There is everything you could see in the very best wedding magazine. Because everyone is different, and for Sally and Gareth this meant a very personal wedding with bells, whistles and a cherry on top. With photos by Dwiko Arie, this really is a dream wedding day.

In two parts – today, the wedding and just the tiniest hint of Sally’s fabulous DIY details. Tomorrow I’ll share the bells and whistles: the knicker bunting, jam jars, table settings and loads more.

Grab the tissues: you’re about to cry happy tears along with Sally’s wedding report.
