Having a wedding takes a whole lot of organisation and is a good thing…

Therefore, please excuse me as I indulge myself by harping on about mine for a while 😀

Firstly, I’ll start with this pic of me and the man in all our finery:

Didn’t we scrub up nice?

Don’t be deceived by the stony expressions here. We smiled continuously for about 12 hours that day and this was one of the only chances we had to rest our aching faces!!

Here’s what we’re wearing:

Me: The dress is by Daniela Benson who is a Bristol based designer and the shoes are Vivienne Westwood, Queen of everything!

Him: Suit, shirt and tie all from Gresham Blake and shoes from Church’s, of course.

A full write up of weddingness can be found here at where the lovely Ariel was kind enough to include my bride profile (very proud :D).

For further info and wedding craftiness, keep scrolling down this entry…

The wedding was in two parts, morning and afternoon – which clearly called for the need for two different outfits!

In the morning I wore a lovely gold Vivienne Westwood dress with my red shoes again. I had a hat and a red bag too to tie it all together. I made the hat myself which turned out to be a crazy-ridiculous bargain! It was made from two lengths of millinery netting which I bought from VV Rouleaux and a black flower corsage which I bought from Asda for about £1.50 – classy! It was just attached to my hair with kirby grips.

This pic also shows my new necklace that I made. I’d been wearing my Miss Asp necklace for months and months before the wedding, so it only seemed right to have an updated version in preparation for the big day! I managed to keep it a secret from my husband until the day before the wedding and then when we were in the registry office, he took off the old necklace and put on the new one – which was cool and very symbolic for us, especially as we had planned to exchange rings later on in the second ceremony.

Here’s a pic of my bouquet that my Mum made. She did all the flowers and turned out to be some kind of secret floristry genius!:

Here’s some pics of the invites that Tim and I designed:

And the favours (the paint tins were filled with Jelly Bellies and the Love Hearts):

The guest book was made out of separate pages for people to fill in – which worked brilliantly!:

Here’s the cake, which our friend Louise made for us – ribbons from VV Rouleaux:

We decorated the whole room (which was gargantuan!) with paper decorations…

…and just generally had the best day EVER!! 😀

Lastly, but not leastly – the rings:

My engagement ring was made by James Newman, and the wedding bands were made by Nig Barratt in Bristol.

Right, I’ll shut up about weddings for a bit now!!

Hope you enjoyed looking at the pics – if you want to see the rest, they can be found here.

    Hi there,

    I have been looking at pictures of your wedding all day! Where can you buy empty paint tins from? I have looked everywhere…
